According to the show's executive producers Season 9 of Smallville is the penultimate season, but rumors are out there that The CW Network loves the show so much, they're dangling lots of greenbacks in front of the executive producers as an incentive to bring the show back for Season 11.

From official release/information:

Product Description:
Great planet, Earth is. So great that other survivors of Planet Krypton wouldn't mind making it home and taking control. But fellow Kryptonian Clark Kent has a warning for Zod and his followers who cross the line, especially if they seek to enlist Lois Lane in their schemes: I will destroy you all! Hearts grow fonder (Clark & Lois) and dangers grow stronger (Clark vs. warriors of Zod) in this 21-Episode Season 9 Collection. Plus, unexpected characters from DC Comics lore add exciting new layers to the adventures of the man who will become Superman. Among them: the shape-shifting Wonder Twins, magical Zantanna, and Justice Society of America's Dr. Fate, Hawkman, and Stargirl. May justice prevail – and Earth survive!

Soaring into its ninth season, this modern retelling of the Superman legend and its classic characters continues to blend realism, action, and emotional depth to reveal a new interpretation of the enduring mythology. This season, as Metropolis's clock tower tolls our characters' darkest hour, we find Clark Kent (series star TOM WELLING) finally making his first attempts to embrace his calling as a superhero.
