"Here's what Kelly has to say on who's returning next season:
Tom Welling: "We wouldn't take a step without him."
Erica Durance: "Erica is the one person we can say yes to. We all know in the mythology it's Clark and Lois forever."
Cassidy Freeman: [Long silence] "I don't know if we can say."
Aaron Ashmore, Justin Hartley, Kristin Kreuk and Sam Witwer: "We can't tell you."
Michael Rosenbaum: "We love Michael; we would love for him to be able to come back and at least do some appearances."
Allison Mack: "We can't tell you!" (Though from our previous chat with Kelly and exececutive producer Brian Peterson, it's likely that Allison is coming back next season)."
I personally wouldn't read too much into the quote above, but since I like making polls... let me ask you guys...
