'Smallville' Showrunners Brian Peterson & Kelly Souders Weigh In on the Series Finale

It's the end of an era. A decade-long journey reaches its conclusion tonight, and as one door closes on Clark Kent, farm boy, high schooler, "The Blur," another opens to reveal a much larger destiny: The birth of Superman. To say that expectations are high would be an understatement, and executive producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders seem well aware that they have a lot of fans to please with the 'Smallville' series finale. While it's impossible to satisfy everyone, it's clear that no one involved in the creative process of producing 'Smallville' takes this ending lightly, and as emotional as tonight's episode may be, I believe it will also be a fitting climax for one of TV's most enduring genre shows. AOL TV caught up with Souders and Peterson this week to discuss the challenges of writing such an eagerly anticipated finale, and what fans can expect from tonight's episode. Because I know that some fans are trying to avoid spoilers and others are desperate for clues, I've split the interview into two parts: spoiler-free at the top, and spoilers at the bottom -- so feel free to join us after the jump to preview the finale! http://www.tvsquad.com/2011/05/13/smallville-showrunners-brian-peterson-kelly-souders-series-finale-interview/

But first, he'd have to get through high school, the heartache of losing his first love, and 150 or so power-hungry bad guys.

Executive producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders talk to TVGuide.com about his journey from awkward teen to Superman.
