Former Smallville showrunners Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders, who guided the long-running drama’s final seasons, have joined the CW’s new genre series The Secret Circle. The gig is consulting, at least for now. The Secret Circle‘s Kevin Williamson, who is co-showrunning the series with Andrew Miller, could use the help — he has two series on the air, Circle and The Vampire Diaries, which he is co-running with Julie Plec. The Secret Circle got off to a good start last Thursday with 3 million viewers, holding on to all of its Vampire Diaries lead-in.
