'Fringe,' 'Hart of Dixie,' 'Supernatural,' 'NCIS': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

It’s late April, friends, and things are getting good, particularly on the shows featured in today’s Spoiler Room. But if you see a show you love that’s not represented, send an e-mail with your request to

I’ll sit here and wait for them to come in. (*Refresh*) In the meantime, can we quickly address this week’s main photo and how Nina Sharp and Bobby look oddly good next to each other. Crossover (in my crazy-a– dreams)!


'Supernatural' changing showrunners (and likely renewed)

Looks like the Winchesters brothers will return.

The CW and Warner Bros. are changing showrunners on Supernatural.

The veteran Friday night drama series is losing current chief writer-producer Sera Gamble. Instead, Jeremy Carver is coming back to take the reins. Carver worked on the show for three previous seasons between 2007 and 2010. He also ran up Syfy’s Being Human, which was recently renewed.

While Supernatural still doesn’t have an official pickup yet for a eighth season, networks don’t change captains on a boat they’ve decided to sink. This is in line with our prediction for the show in’s Death Watch 2012: Our fall TV survival predictions.

'Supernatural': Misha Collins returns -- with a twist! -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP


Castiel’s death was just one of the many casualties that have rocked Sam and Dean this season on Supernatural, and the episodes since have shown the boys — particularly Dean — coping with the immense loss. So you can imagine the feelings and emotion that will bubble to the surface when, as promised, Misha Collins returns in this week’s episode. (Well, at least for Dean.) In traditional Supernatural fashion, there’s a side order of twist with our excitement.

Collins returns as a healer, who Dean enlists to help Sam through a mental break. And while the healer has more than a resemblance to Dean’s angel bestie, as this exclusive clip shows, he has no recollection of Castiel’s time with the boys. So is it Castiel? A doppelganger? We’ll all have to watch on Friday to find out the answer. But one thing is certain: Collins’ character — Castiel or not — will still provide some of the clarity Dean so often needs.

In this clip, for example, Dean explains that he once had an ability to move on after tumultuous events in his life. “It might take me some time, but I always could. What Cas did, I just can’t. I don’t know why,” he says to the healer, who responds with a reality check. “You’re not a machine, Dean. You’re human.”

“The Born-Again Identity” will mark the first of at least three episodes Collins will appear in during the rest of the season. Check out the clip below!

(Also, mini-Quotable: “Your friend’s name was Cas? That’s an odd name.” I missed him…)


'Supernatural' EP on when Dean's drinking will come in handy, a 'caper' episode, and upcoming Leviathan payoff

The Leviathan have taken virtually everything from Dean and Sam this season on Supernatural.

The hard-to-kill creatures have stripped them of resources (R.I.P. Bobby’s books and house), friends (R.I.P. Castiel and Bobby), and familiar comforts (WHERE ARE YOU, IMPALA!?). But before the brothers dive deep into the battle for revenge toward the end of the season, Supernatural will offer up some lighter episodes, executive producer Robert Singer told EW today, starting tonight with “Out With the Old.”

“It sort of gets back to stuff we’ve done in year’s past with a twist at the end. And I think it’ll be interesting for the fans, without giving away too much,” says Singer, who penned the hour. Further ahead, Castiel will return (but “he’s not quite the Castiel we knew,” Singer teases) and the show will also see a return from quirky hunter Garth (D.J. Qualls) as the brothers battle a monster that can only be seen when a person is drunk. “The monster is invisible to everyone and there’s no one better to take on the drinking than Dean,” says Singer.

Of course, per Supernatural’s usual strategy, the lighter fare will offset the heavier episodes that tend to pile up at the end of the season. This year is no different. Following Bobby’s death, the hunt for top evil-doer Dick Roman has been full speed ahead — but with little result (much to Dean’s annoyance). Toward the end of the season, the boys will have their time to right the wrongs thrust upon them by their foes. READ FULL STORY

Shipper Nation: A Valentine's Day treat for 'Fringe' lovers and a salute to TV's most romantic, creative (and arguably strangest) fans

Last Friday, Fringe fans were treated to an instant-classic installment of the Fox sci-fi series, one that significantly advanced the season’s defining storyline: Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson) — marooned in a new rendering of history in which he has not existed since he was a child – trying to return home to his own timeline. Yet for one particular, peculiar subset of loyal Fringe viewers, “Welcome to Westfield” was nothing short of an early Valentine’s Day gift. They’re the fans for whom the dream sequence spectacle of Peter and Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) making love was a dream come true. They’re the fans that got goosebumps when Olivia planted a kiss on Peter, as if this “reboot” version of his ladylove had suddenly reverted back to the original iteration of her. They’re fans known as ‘shippers, and if you’re a Web-chatty TV watcher or pop culture aficionado who tends to fixate on romantic relationships in your favorite fiction or fantasize about the mere possibility of amorous activity between your favorite make-believe people, then you’re probably one of them.

In the current issue of Entertainment Weekly, we explore how the shipper phenomenon — which began with The X-Files and until recently has been more associated with sci-fi and fantasy fandom — has gone mainstream and how shippers themselves can impact the creative process. An added bonus for Fringe fans: Exec producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman tell EW that an episode scheduled to air next month, entitled “A Short Story About Love,” will be a shipper milestone.

'Supernatural': Jared Padalecki, EPs preview rest of the season

These boys can’t seem to catch a break. But that’s pretty much business as usual on Supernatural. Less usual? The season’s high body count.

Now, Supernatural has never shied away from giving key players the figurative (and sometimes literal) axe  — and oftentimes, they’ve returned at some point in the series. But this year, two fan favorites met their maker (first angel pal Castiel and more recently lovable curmudgeon Bobby Singer). The price was as high as it’s ever been. And as the boys continue to mourn their losses this season (RIP Bobby… sorta) (RIP Cas, they think) executive producer Sera Gamble tells EW that the deaths, while difficult, were key in telling the stories they set out to tell this season. “The really cool thing about this show is that [death] never precludes continuing to explore the character,” she says. (For more on the death of Bobby, read today’s Spoiler Room.) “All that means is that we get to be bold and we get to make big choices, and we get to really go places with Sam and Dean.” READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' promo: Dean is untouchable -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

There’s little to add to this promo clip from Supernatural‘s next new episode. On one hand, that’s probably because it doesn’t tell you much plot-wise. On the other hand, it’s because some images simply render the human mind speechless. And the visual of Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) wielding a Tommy Gun while wearing a fedora is one of those images, friends.

But before you check out the promo, a little context: Dean finds himself in 1944 thanks to the God of Time (guest star Jason Dohring). And, as usual, Dean runs into some troubles of the law enforcement kind. Exactly how we get to the point where he’s firing a giant gun, I’m not sure. But does it really matter at this point?  READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' scoop: Misha Collins to return

Castiel lives!

After being assumed dead since the beginning of this season, fan-favorite Misha Collins is slated to return to Supernatural in the new year, Warner Brothers tells EW. He will appear in episode 17 of this season and at least two additional episodes.

The studio and the network, CW, declined to provide more information about his return, but regardless, the news should please fans, who have been vocal about their desire to get the angel back on screen.

Shortly after the premiere, executive producer Sera Gamble told EW the actor’s return was imminent,  though, at the time, she had no specific plans. “We all love Misha [Collins], and we plan to write material for him,” she said. “But in terms of where we are in the story right now, it’s a lot about Sam and Dean and Bobby losing this person that was incredibly important to them.”

How much did you love this news? I was so excited I even circled Nov. 14 in my calendar and drew a creepy mask by the date to remind myself. But in case you need even more reasons to be excited about the impending romantic entanglements in this very special episode, executive producer Josh Safran told me that much “like masked balls in the past, there are multiple kisses — between multiple people” in the episode. “Like, quadratic couples, I’d say,” he teases. Could that have something to do with the “big kiss” everyone has been asking me about? Possibly… READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural': Charisma Carpenter on her reunion with fellow 'Buffy' alum James Marsters

Tonight’s episode of Supernatural will feature a fandom clash of epic proportions as Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel alums Charisma Carpenter and James Marsters hit the small screen as a husband and wife witch team in an episode titled “Shut Up, Dr. Phil.” For Carpenter, who hadn’t shared a scene with Marsters since their days on the WB, it was an on-set reunion worth waiting for.

“We go way back,” she says. “It was fun to see an old friend on set and catch up on each other’s lives and talk about our kids, music, and books and talk about what it was like when we were working on this show and that show. It was a lot of intimate conversations about the old days. It was great.”  READ FULL STORY
