Is it possible that the upcoming ninth season for “Smallville” won’t be the series’ last?
That could be the case according to series star, Justin Hartley who plays ‘Oliver Queen a.k.a. The Green Arrow’.
“Look, they’re so busy right now, they don’t know if they’re doing one more season or eight more seasons or two more seasons,” Hartley told SciFi Wire. “They have no idea. So we’ll see. I’ve spoken to them a couple weeks ago and had kind of a vague conversation with them about concept and stuff.”
Hartley may have a better idea of where things will go when he returns to the set later this month. Justin says he’s seen the first script of the season and can see where the writers are taking the Green Arrow this season.
Referring to the season premiere, Hartley said;
“I know I’m in the episode, I know there’s a couple of saves gone awry. I think Oliver might be drinking again, which is always fun to play. So we’ll see what happens. I’ll leave that up to the brain trust.”
And while Hartley knows that, he doesn’t know yet if and how Green Arrow will go up against this year’s new big-bad, General Zod.
“I don’t know, we’ll see, I hope so. I always like to work with new actors. We just got this guy. I guess they hired a gentleman a couple days ago, so hopefully. We’ll see what happens.”
“Smallville” returns in September on the CW.
