In an interview with the NY Post’s Pop Wrap, Allison Mack revealed that she’ll appear in five episodes of the upcoming 10th, and final, season of The CW’s Smallville:
PW: Do you know how many episodes you’ll be back for?
Allison: I’ll be back for five total episodes.
PW: I heard that the incredibly loyal fans were one of the reasons you decided to return. True?
Allison: Definitely. They were the reason I decided to come back. I was very much ready to move on, and not because I was unhappy with the show or that anything bad happened, I was just very much ready to enter a new phase of my life. But I realized as we came towards the end of the season that my character wasn’t getting a completion. I didn’t feel comfortable walking away from the show, and my character, without a completion. So I committed to doing five episodes to giving her the ending I think she deserves. I do think there’s a relationship between my character and the people who’ve watched the show for so many years. I want to honor them, her and myself.
Smallville premieres Friday, September 24, 2010 at 8:00 p.m. on The CW.
