John Glover Returns as Pa Luthor on 'Smallville'

August 21, 2010 (3:23 am) GMT
Although deceased, Lionel Luthor aka the father of Clark's very own nemesis Lex Luthor, will be back in a number of episodes in season 10.

Another hint that may reprise his role as Lex Luthor in the final season of "" is tossed in. John Glover, the actor who portrays Lex's late father, Lionel, has just been confirmed by EW to return to the series for a multi episode arc.

Glover would appear for at least two episodes airing in November. Lionel was last seen in the seventh season before he was pushed to death by his own son. He re-appeared briefly in the eighth season through archival footage.

Lionel is not the only dead character brought back to life. Clark Kent's very own adoptive father Johnathan Kent will be resurrected as actor has signed up for one episode.

On another news, a couple of villains in the tenth season have found the actors. Steve Byers and Michael Daingerfield are to take the roles as Darkseid's minions, the former as henchman Desaad and the latter as the manipulative Gorden Godfrey. They will be introduced in the third episode called "Supergirl" where Laura Vandervoot reprises her role as Kara Kent.

"Smallville" returns September 24 on The CW.
