Tomorrow’s installment of the hit show will mark its 200th episode.
The episode, called ‘Homecoming, finds Clark and Lois attending a Smallville High 5th year reunion, leading to a look into Clark (and the show’s) past – even as the arrival of Brainiac 5 (James Marsters) also gives Clark another glimpse at his future.
As for the secret to Smallville‘s success? “Hard work, dedication and fans,” says Tom. “I think those are the elements.”
Tom also shares his thoughts on nearing the point of finally wearing the iconic Superman costume. “Well I think what Clark’s going to be dealing with is him being in his own way, he says. “I think it’s an issue and a dilemma a lot of people are familiar with or at least can relate to, where a lot of times, we’re in our own way and preventing ourselves from moving forward with our lives. Clark has to deal with that. He’s got everything going for him. Why doesn’t he just put it on? And I think that’s what he’s trying to figure out for himself.”
Smallville, which started production in 2001, is reportedly filming it’s last season.
