The end of an era is near. The CW has announced the date for the final episode of “Smallville.” The long running series has been on the air for a decade, and has followed the humble beginning of Clark Kent from an awkward teenager to a man. His legacy will come full circle this May, when he finally takes the leap we’ve all been waiting for.

“Smallville” will end with a special two-hour finale event that will surely end with a bang. The CW will present the final episode on Friday, May 13 8:00-10:00 p.m. ET.

“Paying homage to 10 seasons is no small task, and wrapping up each character and story arc has been extremely important to everyone involved in the show,” said executive producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders.  “We’re excited to be able to make the final moments of SMALLVILLE a television event, as the character we’ve grown up with makes his legendary transformation.”

After the airing, “Supernatural” will appear the following Friday May 20 at 8:00-10:00 p.m. ET for its own two-hour finale.

After all these years it’s really happening. We wonder what the final shot of the show will be? Perhaps Clark wearing the traditional Superman suit and flying into the sky? Or maybe he’ll finally dawn that famous curl in his hair? Or will he recite Superman’s mantra of fighting for truth, justice, and the American way? So many things can happen!

Are you excited for the Smallville finale?
