EW.com's "Ausiello Files" reports that Allison Mack will not be returning as a series regular in Season 10 of "Smallville", but she won't be leaving the show completely.
"It's amazing to think that Chloe Sullivan and I have been one in the same for over a third of my life," says Mack in an exclusive statement. "I'm truly humbled by the love and loyalty of all the fans whose enthusiasm has carried me - along with a cast and crew which has become my second family - over the past 9 and a half years. Out of respect for the amazingly loyal fans and the place I will always have in my own heart for Chloe, I'm coming back for several episodes next season to tie up Chloe's Smallville legacy properly.
"It's been a life-changing ride," Mack concludes, "and I look forward to what lies ahead with the strength of a 'superhero' as my foundation."
It's unknown at this point in time just how many episodes Allison Mack will be appearing in next season.
It's hard to imagine Smallville without her, although her Oracle role was becoming a bit over-the-top. I hope that she, Lana, and Lex make reappearances sometime before the series finale.
