Smallville producers have announced that actor Michael Rosenbaum (Lex Luthor) is leaving the program at the end of this season.
You might be just a little bit confused, because in our previous Season 8 Update, we had already shared with you that Michael Rosenbaum would in the very least no longer be a regular next season.
However, the 11-18 episodes that he was rumored to be guest starring in are no longer. Though the CW has now stated, "We like to think that we haven't seen the last of Lex Luthor. Stay tuned," nothing is official, so I wouldn't be getting my hopes up for any Lex appearances come next season.
Rosenbaum has shared this personal note of thanks with those involved with the show and all of the fans.
It's kind of hard to imagine a Smallville without Lex Luthor, isn't it?
