While I have to admit I’m not the biggest fan of Smallville, this new casting announcement is just some fantastic news. EW has found out that along with the growing list of returning cast members from seasons passed (including John Glover as Lionel Luther and Laura Vandervoort as Supergirl), producers have convinced Teri Hatcher to play Lois Lane’s (Erica Durance) mother during the comic book series’ tenth and final season.
Just in case anyone out there is too young or simply doesn’t remember, Hatcher played Lois Lane herself in ABC’s 90’s TV series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. It pretty much gave her the career she has today. And If you hardcore Smallville fans are already freaking out, because Lois’ mother has been dead for quite awhile, don’t panic just yet. In the eighth episode of the forthcoming season Lois finds some old videotapes with her mother in them. Get it? Good. The tenth and final season of Smallville premieres Friday, September 24th at 8/7c on The CW and it sounds like fans shouldn’t miss one minute of it.
