Allison Mack Leaving Smallville?

TV Guide rounds up the rumors.

The show is on its last legs as is. It might be best to let everything end with next week's season finale. I recall that Catherine Bell had signed on for an eleventh season of JAG and Lois & Clark was picked up for a fifth season, neither of which happened.

Selfishly, if the show ended, The CW would have more reason to pick up Reaper.

Smallville is suffering sagging ratings, Michael Rosenbaum will not be returning in season 8, and now TV guide is reporting that Allison Mack, who portrays Chloe Sullivan, maybe leaving over contract negotiations. Chloe Sullivan is Clark Kent’s long time confidant, popular know it all can do anything heroin, and one of only a handful of characters who knows Clarks super secret identity.

Smallville may need to hold on to Allison, but only because the writers or producers seem stuck in the past. For years now Smallville has retreated again and again to storylines about meteor freaks (humans mutated by Kryptonite) and the tired moral message that keeping secrets is bad (sometimes secrets save us).
