The cast and creators of The CW hit “Supernatural” appeared at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con including creator Eric Kripke. Kripke decided to step down from the show after the 5th season but explained to the audience in attendance that he still plans on being involved with the production. He along with Sera Gamble (who’s been on board since episode 1) talked about what we can expect from Sam and Dean during season 6. Here’s the rundown with video!!
Here’s the introduction of the cast including Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Eric Kripke, Misha Collins, Jim Beaver, and Ben Edlund. When the two Winchester boys came out the crowd went wild!
Here are some highlights from the panel:
Kripke on his departure from the series:
He also spoke about the season 5 finale and stated that if the show had really ended at that point there would have been a lot more dead people. But since the series was picked up for another season, they had to tweak it. About 70% – 80% of what aired was in the original script for that episode. The Michael and Lucifer story arc stayed the same from beginning to end but everything else was slightly altered to keep the series going.
For those of you who’ve been wanting the boys to get back to their monster chasing roots they will. Gamble confirmed it!
As for Sam and his trip to hell, here’s what Jared Padalecki had to say about his character’s future:
Misha Collins was also on hand and shared a little info about Castiel. He stated that he will return to a heaven that’s completely out of order and he’ll try to create a coalition to get things back to normal.
Gamble also stated that a female relative of the brothers will come into the picture next season. While Ackles said that when the show returns it will be one year after the “apocalyptic event” and Dean will be domesticated. According to the actor, “He’s living a somewhat normal life. This season will focus on how he gets pulled back into the situation and how he deals with that.”
One big question that everyone wanted answered had to do with Prophet Chuck. Is he really God? Well, here’s what Kripke said about that:
We’re not gonna give an answer. It’s completely open to interpretation. We didn’t want a character to come out in the end and say, ‘And I’m God!’”
So there you have it! A lot of stuff went down and the fans were eating it up. One thing you can also look forward to in season 6 is an episode entitled “Weekend at Bobby’s,” which Ackles directed himself. It will be the 4th episode to air this season so look out for it!
