DC Comics is majorly active on television, with The CW currently running four comic book shows, The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow, while FOX has the Batman prequel series, Gotham, and we might be getting Black Lightning (on FOX) and Krypton (on SyFy) next year. But before we got to this point that we are at with DC TV, there was Smallville, the 10 year amazing journey about Clark Kent before he became the legend that is Superman.
While Smallville ended in 2011, the show hasn’t been available on streaming services, but finally will be as of this Saturday when all ten seasons becomes available on Hulu as it was previously announced that they had picked up the streaming rights to the series. The show, created by Al Gough and Miles Millar, was an re-imagining of the iconic Man of Steel as we follow Clark (played by Tom Welling) throughout his teenage years and eventually his early years in Metropolis before he suits up.
