EW has an exclusive with Eric Kripke who handed the show over to the awesome Sera Gamble for S6, go read the whole thing!
Okay, what is the new story line?
KRIPKE: One of the first things Sera and Bob talked to me about was that the angel thing is rightfully exhausted, so where do you go from there? Not to say that angels and demons won’t be a part of the story line, because they will. Castiel will be there. Crowley will be there. The beloved characters will be threading into the story. But the great undiscovered country of Supernatural is kind of right in front of our face: creatures and monsters. We have had so many creature episodes but we haven’t actually explained where they came from—[similar] to the way we have explored angels and demons. How do they feel about the situations they are in? Are they from here? Where did the first ones come from? How did werewolves and vampires and shape-shifters all begin anyway? I thought that was a really smart notion on [Sera and Bob's] part, just exploring the history of that, because that was something that we never investigated on the show.
How does Grandpa [Mitch Pileggi] fit into this?
KRIPKE: He’s representative of the other side of this exploration, which is that Sam and Dean have a family of hunters that they never knew they had. Their grandfather is the head of that family. Remember, it’s not the Winchesters who are famous hunters, it’s the Campbells. And we are saying that the Campbells are part of a timeline of hunters that have been there since the country’s origins. As Sera put it, they were hacking heads off vampires on the Mayflower. For Sam and Dean to really tap into a family history, which they never knew they had and again never really investigated before, is pretty interesting to us.
Want more scoop on season 6? You should definitely check out the show’s Comic-Con panel on Sunday, July 25, at 11:15 a.m, starring Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Misha Collins, and Jim Beaver, as well as EPs Sera Gamble, Ben Edlund, and Eric Kripke.
BTO Supernatural mashup by SuperfreakSummer
I miss these shows already and it has been a week, sigh. Katy Perry just performed live at the CW upfronts for advertisers sounds like she got them on their feet!
…The big news is that Supernatural is moving to Friday nights at 9 p.m. ET, after Smallville in its 10th and final season at 8 p.m. This reunites the shows that once worked so well for The CW on Thursday nights.
The Vampire Diaries:
Next season, the appearance of the villainous Katherine in Mystic Falls throws a wrench into the love triangle between Stefan, Elena and Damon, and the other residents of Mystic Falls must choose sides as they fall victim to a new breed of danger. New and unexpected friendships will be forged, allies will become enemies, and hearts will be broken. Stefan and Damon will be forced to face a villain more evil and diabolical than they ever believed possible. And they’ll take their shirts off. Frequently.
Season six will be a season of mystery and shadow. Heaven and Hell have been left in complete disarray since the apocalyptic events of season five. And now, monsters, angels and demons roam across a lawless and chaotic landscape. And so Dean Winchester, who has retired from hunting and sworn never to return, finds himself being pulled back into his old life – pulled back by none other than Sam Winchester, who has escaped from Hell. The two reunite to beat back the rising tide of creatures and demon-spawn, but they quickly realize that neither are who they used to be, their relationship isn’t what it used to be, and that nothing is what it seems.
I love the way the writers built out the 5 year arc and I LOVE the way they are living up to the apocalyptic showdown. Jensen Ackles has been giving some really powerful performances and I hope Swan Song gives Jared Padalecki a chance to let his Sammy shine..
And I really love that we are getting a Season 6, CW is the best network at this point, they reward their fan base and create loyalty, fer realz. FOX, ABC observe Dawn Ostroff at CW and learn!
