Michael Rosenbaum To Return For 'Smallville' Series Finale

'Smallville' has finally managed to convince Michael Rosenbaum to return for the series finale.

Producers had been trying to get Rosenbaum to reprise his role as Lex Luthor for the series' final season since it began.

But, in December, executive producer Brian Peterson lamented that he was losing hope.

"You know what, if it's roses to convince him, we've done that. If it's dinner, we've done that," said Peterson.

Rosenbaum says he finally decided to relent and return for the series finale for just one reason.

"I'm simply doing it for all of the fans out there who made Smallville the great success it is."

"I appreciate all of their passion, their relentlessness, and even their threats," he jokes. "I'm delighted to return for the series finale."

Executive producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders are obviously excited -- and relieved: "There'll be no doubt about how Lex becomes the great rival in Clark Kent's life. He is the villain of the story."

'Smallville' will come to an end with a two-hour series finale on May 13.
