Supernatural has a new showrunner, Jeremy Carver, returning to the show after some time away helming Syfy’s Being Human, and it looks like he is working to strike a balance between giving fans something fresh and staying close to the show’s roots. Supernatural wouldn’t be the same without classic rock, and tonight’s season 8 opener delivered on that musical note straight away with Styx’s “Man In The Wilderness.” Tommy Shaw croons in the 1977 song, “Another year has passed me by / … What kind of man have I become?”
Indeed, that’s the question Sam and Dean will be asking themselves – and each other – this season as they grapple with all that’s happened during a year spent apart.
Carver and fellow executive producer Robert Singer were on hand to answer reporters’ questions about the new season following a screening of the premiere. BEWARE OF SPOILERS if you haven’t watched tonight’s premiere (Supernatural‘s 150th episode!), titled “We Need to Talk About Kevin,” but read on if you want to learn about Carver and Singer’s take on the premiere and what’s in store for the season ahead.
