Smallville: Kara is OUT


More news on the cast situation for next season of Smallville:


We know now that Allison Mack (Chloe) will definitely be back, but it seems as though Laura Vandervoort (Supergirl/Kara) is finished.


Says Laura on the news, "We were all surprised when they chose not to bring me back as a regular, but I'm sure I'll be back for one or two [episodes]!"


So...are you guys sad to see Kara departing?

I am not overly saddened by this news (since we haven't had long to get to know her character) - I am surprised though. Hopefully they let her character finish off nicely, and not just how she was in the season finale. Having her in a few episodes next season would be nice.

i guess it makes sense, bumping her off the show a bit premature because if you think about it, when the show actually ends (god forbid) if kara is still here, then they need to come up with a way of ending which ends every character in-sink witht the movies. Having kara just adds to the hardship of writing that ending. i dunno if that makes sense to you guys.
Im not sayin im happy about her gettin removed because im not. I <3 kara, she's SO DAMN HOT its almost unfair that she's allowed on television.

I think Kara should stay, Clark needs someone like her by his side. Clark needs to learn everything there is know about their powers and i think the best person to guide him for that is Kara.

Laura Vandervoort aka Supergirl/Kara is super hott. She has my attention every time I see her but I just don't like her character, I never did even in the first episode I saw her. She is a somewhat decent actor but I'm sure her looks will get her a few other jobs. Maybe supergirl is suppose to be a superb*tch, if so she's doing a good job.
I know she'll be back for at least 2 episodes or more next season.
To answer your question; YES ... I am glad to see her GONE!!!

i'm impartial to her leaving. her acting seemed forced and just not believable, maybe because she was on that show Instant Star (?) and she played a dumb blonde. I cant take her seriously, but yeah she's gorgeous. I just hope they have her in some of season 8 and let her make a decent exit on the show.

Dont be stupid. Lara will be back. She would have not been seen in episode 20 of season 7 if she wasnt going to be in the next season.As usual we see a character go to his death before he reappears. am i right? it happened for all the seasons. so stop with this "will she be back crap".

To tell you the truth I really don't have any high hopes for this next season. For as for as I know this coming season maybe the last season. They partially have nothing to work with.
Kara is gone.Lex is gone (he decided not to continue another contract with CW)Lionel Luther is dead (and not going to return)Lana is gone for next season (she has announced that she will hardly appear in this next season so he has gone inter nation with other medias)
Martha Kent is never seen (I don't think we've seen her this season)
So the point is besides Clark, Louis, Chloe and Jimmy. There is no one.Not only that but this next season they're bringing in the ONLY Villain that has ever KILLED SUPERMAN. And as depressing as the story line has been so far. I wouldn't be surprised.

The real thing we should focus on is that 7 seasons have ended and our superhero is still NOT flying!!! I mean come on! 7 seasons! It's amazing how they managed to pull this off for so long. I think it's really time they did something about that.None of you says it but I'm sure it's on everyone's mind

From what I have read Kara (Allison Mack) is not leaving. At the last moment she renewed her contract with the CW, and will be in all 20 new episodes next season (Good to know, she is a freaken babe). I am however sorry to hear that Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum) has decided not to renew his contract, and will not be in the new season. It stands to reason that they need all the help they can get to keep the show alive. I mean I have been watching Smallville for all long time, and the more seasons the show has, the more it begins to suck.
I would also like to know when Clark is going to fly. I mean he should have figured it out by now and it is part of who he is. Also they are supposed to be bringing in new villains, but he has not learned how to deal with the old ones yet. I feel like one of the other people who posted a comment, I will give it a couple of episodes and if I am not impressed then I am saying bye bye.
Below are the sites where I got my info.

I don't know what's goin' on with the smallville's producers, they're taking everyone out of the show!! First Martha, then Lionel, then Lex, then Lana, and now Kara! I mean come on! What would the story be like with only Clark, Chloe, and Lois as main characters?! I hope they've prepared a very good idea for this, otherwise I don't know how smallville's future's gonna be. Also, they came with a lot of contradictory ideas along the 7th season. First of all, we didn't we learn in season 2 that Clark was sent to earth to conquer human race, and on the 6th and 7th they said that he was sent to earth in order to save it. There a whole lot of them and I don't think I can list them, so just keep track of past seasons and y'all will notice how much the producers have bend smallville's story!

I totally agree with you, Season 7 was really great for me. I almost bet that Season 8 will be as the first Smallville episodes, hunting Kryptonite affected people... And Kara was one of my favourite characters, Smallville without Lex (and Kara in my opinion) will kinda... Suck a bit.

Kara is very attractive but when she acts i think shes too tense and she doesnt seem to act the part. And with CK i think he should get his ass into gear in flying, he should use one hand to pick himself up from the collar, and use a foot to his own ass....lol, Im kinda glad Lana was going too... the lana thing dragged on way to long.... im glad she came to her senses knowing that their werent going to be a future for them. Fingers crossed for a new character some girl who is super hot hehe

To all you whose gonna teach him to fly people, I got something to tell you...he already knows how to fly. Remember the episode where Chloe's stalker took over the nuke plant and Clark flew up to the warhead and smashed the targeting system? Clark chooses not to fly because no matter how fast you move through the sky you're gonna show up on government radars which we all know hasn't worked out so well for our dear Mr. Kent. I almost forgot to those who say things have to shape up for the movies so why is Doomsday on his way....just sit back and enjoy the show because superman fans know that there's no such thing as Lana Lang nor did superman meet any of the Justice League before he dawned the cape.....oh and to answer the ?? no it's about time Laura got kicked of the show she contradicts everything I love about supergirl...

obviously 'enough310' you know nothing about Smallville, Clark cannot fly yet he only can jump really high, look it up. he displays this on 'reckoning' where he reveals his secret to Lana for the first time, and the warhead part.

anywayz i dont think kara is gonna b completely out she's gonna appear on some episodes of season 8 and the writters will find some dumb way for her exit ...but guys u gotta think about tha real problem here .. is dat lex is not going to b in the next season ..i wonder what will they do in the first episode of season 8 ..because lex is suppose to b the one that controls the traveler ( CK ) ...so then whats gonna happen next if lex is gone ?? who is going to control clark ??? if no one is going to control clark then ..what was tha point of bringing up the veritas ???

Ok, i am kinda new, but some of the below might clear abit of stuff up.
Firstly CK can fly, or at least subconsciously. Some will recall he woke up finding himself floating, he simply has a fear of height.
Regarding Kara, even if she is trapped in the Phantom Zone, she is a member of the house of El. So her blood should be the key to her getting free. It's far to say Braniac didn't know this as even Zod had no idea.
Regarding Lex/CK and the FoS, the Purple Ball (to want for a better phrase/word), is the device used to either control or show, how to control CK. But it's soul purpose is to control CK if he is set to destroy humanity. But as he is not, the ball should be useless. Even Jor-El ain't stupid enough to create a device that can control/kill CK will he still has hope of helping mankind.
With regards to Lex, he will appear in the first 10 Minutes of the Premiere of Season 8. During which the FoS should wipe his memory clean of CK and his powers. After all if i am not mistaken, Lex's hatred for Superman is stemed from not helping Lex. Not from the past of Ck and Lex.

Its annoying and lazy of the creators, how most people who find out about CK's powers, just seem to loose their memory! I've lost count how many times it has happened, so far.

hi everyone...
there is so much to say about this show that i feel almost lost.I realy hope that no one teaches clark out to fly. i am sick of seeing superman as a weak kid with no control of his destiny. he could already have died a thousand times... i understand that he needed to go through some difficulties or the show would be boring but now that we are close (i hope so) to see the jump from Clark to superman he should be more independent.if it was already a mistake to show Clark, fruit of a desperate action (in the original story hee was sent just to survive and the rest was his choice), as a insecure and powerless person, now that they made him the traveler, the one that was sent to guide us all, they realy need to make him stronger in spirit.he was always beated by Kara (that is teaching him and should be teached by him), he only defeated brainiac because he was without energy, and needed special objects to defeat the fantoms (in the movie he defeated three kriptonians with only his powers and his smartness).if someone teaches him to fly i will never see the show again. he already have done it,when he saved Lana from the tornado he felt that he was in control.about the characters that are going or staying, well... if they want tokeep this going forever they should keep them all (they are all great), but if they whant to end this close to the real story they should all go because, there is no Chloe, there is no kara, i agree with the thing of the lack of originality about the ones who lost memory in order to forget clark's secret but lex needs to forget about it and go because he needs to create a distance from Clark.if i made any mistake with my english i am sorry... it's not my natural language and i'm also sorry for writting this much.
