One Tree Hill

Another TV show is headed for retirement with The CW announcing today that long-running drama Smallville will finish.

The series, which has run for an impressive nine seasons, will conclude after its tenth says the network.

Smallville follows a young Clarke Kent (Tom Welling) as he becomes the most famous superhero of all, Superman.

The CW has also decided to bring to a close the rebooted Melrose Place after the show’s first season. The series had a run of 18 episodes but has proven not as popular as the original 1990’s effort and will not return.

Meanwhile, teen drama One Tree Hill will receive a surprise eighth season.
