Rest easy, Smallville fans!
The CW show will be back this fall for its 10th season despite not being among the first shows announced for renewal.
Smallville is still performing well, especially in the men 18-34 and men 18-49 demographics.
The CW has already picked up The Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, 90120, Supernatural and America's Next Top Model for another season, but the futures of One Tree Hill, Life Unexpected and Melrose Place are still uncertain.
We hear Melrose shouldn't be holding its breath!
