‘Smallville’ Creators Make Big Exit

Apr 4, 2008  •  Post A Comment

“Smallville” creators Al Gough and Miles Millar won’t return for the show’s eighth season, saying on their Web site that “we achieved what we set out to do,” Daily Variety reports. Executive producers Darren Swimmer, Todd Slavkin and Kelly Souders will take over as showrunners for the series, which stared on the WB in 2001 and moved to the CW two years ago, the newspaper says.

  1. They say they accomplished what they set out to do. You will recall that this mission statement referred to showing how Clark prepared to become Superman in his formative years and how all these lemets of the legend camt together, in a somewhat remimagined form.
    Since they have in fact accomplished this, that can only mean the new season will be the last, in which the new producers rapidly move Clark and Kara toward publicly assuming their Superman and Supergirl personas. This season will be the culmination, the fruition of what we have been waiting for, all due to the great work of Gough and Millar.
    It has been one helluva ride and a great series, despite turning much of the legend on its ear.
    Well done guys-you will be missed!
