According to RADAR sources, actor Tom Welling is just about set to do a 9th season of Smallville on the CW.

The 31 year-old actor plays Clark Kent on the show about the formative years of Superman.

Ratings have gone up this season thanks to the introduction of the villainous Doomsday and the departure of the boring Lana Lang. It is assumed that Erica Durance and Justin Hartley will return as popular regulars Lois Lane and Green Arrow, respectively. No word on the fate of Chloe and Jimmy Olsen. When a show has lasted this long, bumps in salaries often cause for a whittling of ensemble casts.

It still remains unlikely that Clark will don the familiar Superman costume, so as to avoid any possible conflicts and confusion with another big-screen incarnation of the Man of Steel.
