Here's why The CW canceled those 4 shows this year

The CW is answering for its crimes cancellations: three fan-favorite shows and one spin-off that are still fueling the voices of sad fans.

Though CW president Mark Pedowitz has previously addressed the scrapping of both The Tomorrow People and the Supernatural spin-off Bloodlines, the network chief fielded cancellation questions aplenty during the CW’s executive panel on the Television Critics Association semi-annual press tour.

Here’s what Pedowitz had to say about four axed shows: READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural': Mark Sheppard returning as series regular for season 10

Long may he reign!

The King of Hell will be sitting comfortably on his throne when Supernatural returns for its tenth season: Mark Sheppard, the man behind fan-favorite Crowley, has officially been added as a series regular for the year. We don’t know how many episodes he will appear in at this point, but considering Dean’s hellish situation, we’d bet that Crowley’s involvement will be key.

Plus, who else is going to call Sam “Moose”?

'Supernatural' finale: Jensen Ackles teases the brother moment that leaves Dean with a tear-stained shoulder

Supernatural‘s Winchester brothers have been through it all. Well, they’ve at least been through a lot. In the show’s previous eight season finales, we’ve watched Dean get sent to hell, Sam get sent to hell, Dean get sent to purgatory, Sam die, and believe it or not, this list keeps going. But this season, the finale is going to focus less on where the brothers are sent and more on what’s happening internally, specifically with dear old Dean.

In the penultimate episode, we got a glimpse at what the Mark of Cain was doing to Dean when he attacked Gadreel with the First Blade and was all but foaming at the mouth for more. So can things get worse for Dean? Jensen Ackles hopes not. “It’s been a tough season for me,” Ackles told us at the CW Upfronts. “I don’t usually have to play Dean this dark for this long. Usually it’s an episode, and then he comes back and is happy-go-lucky and a Dean we all love to hate or love to love, whatever side of the fence you’re on.” Obviously we’re on the love-to-love side of things.

“I’m hoping that season 10 might lighten him up a bit,” Ackles added. “[Season] 9 took a bit of a toll, but at the same time, that’s something I don’t expect. Because the show is every evolving and it constantly changes, the characters have to do the same, so even though it was a rough tough season, I still think it was a good season. We’ll see.”

However, we first have to make it through the season 9 finale, which, when asked to rank the finale on a scale of one to Hell, Ackles said: “It’s not so much the place that he’s in as opposed to the issue that’s surrounding him, and that I think is the shocking part.”

Speaking of shocking, Ackles guaranteed that the finale is one of those don’t-miss-the-final-60-seconds deals. Also, expect one of those Winchester brother-bonding moments that will “probably” make you cry, “considering [Jared's] tears were all over my shoulder,” Ackles said.

If anybody needs me, I’ll be buying a box of tissues.

The Supernatural finale airs Tuesday, May 20 at 9 p.m. on The CW.

'Supernatural: Bloodlines' boss on monster families, spinoff inspiration, and only sort of being 'The Godfather' for TV

After nine seasons of watching the Winchester brothers do their thing, it’s finally time to meet another hunter — and to trade listening to cassettes in an Impala for eating Death’s favorite food, Chicago deep dish pizza.

Supernatural: Bloodlines, the much-anticipated spinoff of The CW’s Supernatural, has been 18 months in the making. With tonight’s backdoor pilot, we’re finally ready to meet some monster families. We chatted with Bloodlines writer Andrew Dabb about why he chose to make “The Godfather with fangs,” what we can expect from these five families, future crossovers, and more.

'Supernatural' spin-off: Watch the first trailer for 'Bloodlines' here -- EXCLUSIVE

After nine months of anticipation, Supernatural fans will finally get to feast their eyes on the show’s spin-off, Supernatural: Bloodlines, next Tuesday. And we have the exclusive first promo.

In this short sneak peek at the show, airing as a backdoor pilot, we get our first look at Skins alum Lucien Laviscount as Ennis Ross, a police academy trainee whose fiancée is killed in the crossfire of a monster war. Per the official description, Ennis will cross paths with the Winchesters after the brothers head to Chicago on a case and soon learn of the mafia-esque monster families running the underbelly of the city.

In describing the show to EW back in January, executive producer Jeremy Carver said, “We’ve created a world that feels like the Supernatural world yet has so much more story to be told that doesn’t trample on the mother ship’s terrain. You’ve got two shows that are going to be able to exist in total harmony, I think.”

'Supernatural': Misha Collins on his directorial debut, Crowley testing Dean, the war in heaven, more

Last week’s Supernatural ended with a “sobered up” Crowley realizing that his life was in danger. As a result, he stole the First Blade from the Winchester brothers. Pair that with the return of Abaddon this week — not to mention Dean finally realizing the effects of the Mark of Cain — and an end-of-season, danger-is-imminent feeling is slowly creeping in. For now, though, we’re trying to stay calm and take things one week at a time — which is why we talked with Misha Collins about what comes next.

Collins, who makes his directorial debut with tonight’s episode, wasn’t able to promise us a Castiel appearance — not even a cameo! He did, however, talk about the brothers’ dilemma, what Crowley is up to, and what we can expect from Cas in future episodes. Here’s what we learned:

'Supernatural' star Jensen Ackles on forgiveness, the internal effects of the Mark of Cain: 'Dean's putting on blinders and taking steroids'

Last we saw of the handsome Winchester brothers, things were … complicated. Let’s just say that Supernatural‘s ninth season is full of battles: Sam’s inner battle, Dean’s inner battle, the brothers’ battle with each other, the battle in hell, and the brewing battle in heaven, to name a few. So as we head into the end of the season, what can we expect from our favorite hunters, their angelic sidekick, and a blood-addicted demon?

For starters, Tuesday night’s episode focuses around the search for The First Blade, aka the weapon that pairs with the Mark of Cain to kill Abaddon. But do we want Dean to find the blade considering we’re yet to see the consequences we know come with the Mark of Cain? We’re not so sure, which is why we caught up with Jensen Ackles to talk about the end of the season, Dean’s dilemma, and all things pertaining to that pesky (but kind of badass) Mark of Cain:

'Pretty Little Liars' star Bryce Johnson cast in 'Supernatural' spin-off pilot

Bryce Johnson, best-known as Detective Darren Wilden on ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars, has been cast in the Supernatural spin-off, Supernatural: Bloodlines, EW has confirmed.

There are no details on Johnson’s role, but the actor did tweet about a quasi-PLL reunion, as he joins PLL alums and spin-off stars Sean Faris and Nathaniel Buzolic for the pilot currently filming in Vancouver.

Bloodlines centers around Violet (Melissa Roxburgh), a member of the werewolf pack and her forbidden love for family rival David (Buzulic). The series is described as a “sweeping drama about the various mafia-esque monster families that, unknowingly to humans, run the underbelly of Chicago and who are being tracked by a newly minted hunter who’s trying to stop them and rid Chicago of anything or anyone supernatural.”

The spin-off pilot will air as part of the regular Supernatural season on CW.

Supernatural spinoff double scoop! You know how The CW’s new Supernatural series is called Tribes? Forget about that. The official title is now Supernatural: Bloodlines.

We’re told “Violet hides her true nature because of her forbidden love for family rival David (Nathaniel Bozulic), but when cornered, her inner wolf breaks free.”

'Supernatural' boss talks Castiel's 'consequence', God, and the spin-off

Supernatural‘s mid-season finale left us with our jaws on the floor and tears in our eyes — if only we looked as pretty as Dean does when he cries, amirite? In case you need a reminder, things ended with a not-so-friendly Gadreel taking off in Sam’s body, but not before he killed our favorite prophet Kevin Tran (Osric Chau).

When we spoke with executive producer Jeremy Carver immediately following the event, he explained the decision to lose Kevin as well as what comes next for Dean. But what’s next for Castiel?
