Rosenbaum is returning after all. The actor will reprise his role of Lex in the two-hour series finale. Details here.
Original article follows below.
Inside TV | EW is reporting that Michael Rosenbaum “has repeatedly rebuffed attempts by producers this season to get him back” on Smallville for the finale:
“He has put the show behind him and moved on,” says a knowledgeable source. “He’s pursuing his other creative outlet [writing]. By all indications, he is not going to be involved.”
There’s still a slight chance he could return because the show’s final three episodes haven’t been filmed yet, but it doesn’t look likely at this point. Rosenbaum left the show in season eight.
As previously reported, Smallville will end its 10-year run with a two-hour season finale on Friday, May 13 (8:00-10:00PM).
