Crusade 035

Opening credits for Tom Welling in season 4 over a scene from season 1.

The opening credits start with the title of the show, followd by short clips from episodes of this or earlier seasons in which a specific character appears. The head of the character and the name of the actor are then superimposed to one of the clips. From season 5 on, the background settings for the actors' credits have a red margin on both sides.

Generelly, 7 or 8 regular cast members are presented in each season, only seasons 9 and 10 have less credits. The main cast changes from season to season, only season 3 has the same main cast as season 2. In total, 17 actors are presented in the opening credits of the 10 seasons.

The music underlying the opening credits is the song Save Me by rock band Remy Zero which is performed live by the band in the season 1 finale Tempest and was shortened to 50 seconds for the opening credits.

Character appearances

Season5Credits-00014

Lois Lane has recurring appearances in season 4 already, but Erica Durance is credited only from season 5 on.

Lana Season 7

Kristin Kreuk is last credited in season 7 even if Lana Lang still has recurring appearances in season 8.

Even if the opening credits are the same fro each episode of a season, this doesn not imply that the main characters portrayed by the credited cast members appear in each episode.

Some main characters appear only in a bit more than half the episodes in which they are credited. Further, a main character may already have been appeared in earlier or still may appear in later episodes than the seasons in which he is credited.

For a more detailed explanation of the appearances of the main characters in the episodes of each season refer to the articles Character appearances and Main character absences.
