Does John Schneider Remain In The Smallville Opening Credits?
the airing of "Vengeance," some fans wondered why John
Schneider remains in the opening credits of Smallville
when his character was killed in the 100th episode.
obligations will keep John in the opening titles for the rest
of the season, whether or not he is slated to appear on the show
again. Usually, when an actor appears in more than half of the
episodes of the season, they still appear in the opening - witness
Erica Durance and John Glover, who usually only appear in 13 of
the 22 episodes per year.
video in "Vengeance" might not be the last we see of
Schneider on Smallville, so the "I've read scripts
with Jonathan in them" posted on John Schneider's official
website actually is true. Look for at least one more episode to
feature Jonathan Kent, be it in flashback or some other scifi
device. The only episode we've heard about thus far will be "Void,"
which airs in April, but don't be surprised if we see him sooner.
many senses, Jonathan is in the show more after he's dead. His
memory is kind a talisman for the second half of Season 5. I'm
in it in spirit more than I was in Season 4 at all," Schneider
says in a TV Guide interview which can be found at this
