Smallville Season 4

May 17, 2005: “Smallville” Moving to Thursday Nights

The WB has officially announced that "Smallville" will be returning for a fifth season, but the show will move to Thursday nights at 8pm.

Here's the official Press Release from the WB:

    "This season, we're making a bold statement on Thursday nights by moving one of our signature hits, Smallville, to 8:00," said David Janollari, The WB's entertainment president. "The show faced some of the toughest competition of any series on television this season, going up against Lost every week, yet it continued to deliver great ratings."

Here's how the network describes the new season:

    "Smallville is coming off a great year that continued to explore the mythology of the early days of the Clark Kent character. More exciting pieces of the puzzle will be revealed next season when Clark finds himself transported to the Fortress of Solitude. Starring Tom Welling as the Kansas farm boy who grows up to be Superman, the series is The WB's number one show with men 18-34 and third highest-rated series in adults 18-34."

Returning cast members include Tom Welling, Kristin Kreuk, Michael Rosenbaum, Allison Mack, John Glover, Annette O'Toole and John Schneider. No mention was made of Erica Durance, so it is unknown at this stage what will happen with the character of Lois Lane in Season 5.

It should be noted that a new TV show called "Supernatural", starring Jensen Ackles (who starred as Jason Teague in Season 4 of "Smallville"), has been picked up by the WB for next season.
