The CW Announces New Smallville Helmers

Yesterday, in an open letter, “Smallville” creators and executive producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar shocked many saying they are not staying on for the eighth season of the show. Now, The CW has named their replacements:

“Al Gough and Miles Millar have been great partners and instrumental in the development and success of ‘Smallville,'” said the network. “While we are sad to see them go, we are very excited to announce that executive producers Darren Swimmer, Todd Slavkin, Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson will helm the show next season. [They] have been writing for the show for the past six seasons, and as producers for the last four years, they have played an integral role in the ongoing creative evolution of the series. As showrunners, they will continue to deliver the compelling storytelling that ‘Smallville’ fans have come to expect and love.”
