Tag: Supernatural (1-10 of 195)
Supernatural‘s 10th season kicked off with an hour full of karaoke, mystery, at least one kidnapping, and then some more karaoke. By the end of it, Sam’s hunt for Dean was halted, and Dean had left his karaoke mic behind to escape his brother’s grasp. But what happened to Sam’s shoulder? And what is Crowley’s master plan?
We chatted with showrunner Jeremy Carver to talk about the events of the premiere, what’s next, and this year’s introduction of witch Rowena:
Heading into Supernatural‘s 10th season, showrunner Jeremy Carver has teased that this year’s mythology will be “very, very personal” for all of our favorite characters. But before we can get to that chapter, we have to deal with all things Demon Dean.
From the promos, we know that Demon Dean is a fan of strip clubs, karaoke, and porn. But how does he feel about his younger brother—and what is Sam willing to do to find him? We talked with Jensen Ackles about playing the Deanmon and what comes next. You know, after all the evil.
I still remember the first time a spoiler truly failed me. It was the season 3 finale of The O.C., and I had read that someone was going to die. Everything I found online pointed to Sandy Cohen having a heart attack. The rumors crushed me to read—but after weeks of preparation, I was ready to try and come to terms with it. But as I sat on my couch, two minutes before the finale was scheduled to end, I realized that Sandy was nowhere to be seen. Instead, the show was focused on a car containing Ryan and Marissa. I started to panic. Sure enough, the spoiler had led me astray: Marissa died, and my favorite couple was torn apart. I’ll never let that go.
So why am I telling you this? Because I promise you, roomies, that I will do my very best never to lead you astray. With the return of Spoiler Room, you have my word that you will know what I know—because that’s how being roommates works, right? Just be sure not to, you know, open my mail or anything. Deal?

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
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.
Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the May 13 episode of Supernatural, you probably want to stop reading now. Actually, you definitely want to stop reading now! READ FULL STORY
'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': 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:
