The CW’s new president isn’t thinking this will be Supernatural‘s final season.
Despite being in its seventh year and getting shifted to Fridays last season, the network’s new chief Mark Pedowitz seems fairly optimistic about the show’s chances. “It’s not intended to be the last season,” he told critics at their press tour in Beverly Hills. “We will see where the ratings go. I personally hope, and I think we all at The CW hope, that this show keeps on going. So at the moment we look at one season at a time.”
Asked why the show has lasted so long, Pedowitz replied: “It’s not about the demon of the week. It’s about the love of two brothers and these two really good looking guys. And I think that transcends the supernatural piece at the end of the day.”
Pedowitz gave some clues as to the direction he wants to take the network, saying he’s definitely looking to develop a superhero show (taking advantage of one of The CW’s parent companies, Warners Bros.) and is “open” to doing comedies (noting the upcoming CBS sitcom 2 Broke Girls would have been appropriate for The CW) and isn’t against doing remakes (citing Syfy’s Battlestar Galactica and The CW’s own 90210 as fine examples).
Critics asked, With all The CW shows getting additional episodes next season, why Vampire Diaries didn’t get any more hours? Response: Kevin Williamson, who’s also producing the new witchy series Secret Circle for the network, didn’t feel he could deliver more without impacting quality. Asked if there’s any chance that One Tree Hill will get more than 13 hours, Pedowitz was doubtful.

What’s more, the two actors, who previously worked together both on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its David Boreanaz-fronted spin-off Angel, will be playing husband and wife on the spooktacular drama, which launches its new cycle on Friday, Sept. 23, at 9/8c. Watch for this glorious genre-gasm to come in the new season’s fifth episode, titled “Shut Up, Dr. Phil.”
“This episode is ‘Bewitched gone wrong,’” reveals showrunner Sera Gamble. “[It was] all upside for this successful man (Marsters) while he was married to the witch (Carpenter), but now that he’s pissed her off, the whole town is paying the price.”
TVLine happened to be speaking with Carpenter on Wednesday morning (to talk up her Sept. 1 Burn Notice appearance), when she shared what little she could about her Supernatural outing. “My people called me yesterday to see if I wanted to do it and I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’d love to go to Vancouver in the summer!’” she said. “It’s probably one of my all-time favorite cities.”
At the time, little did Carpenter know that the Canadian seaport would be playing host to the biggest on-screen Buffy reunion to date, or at least since her and Nicholas Brendon’s 2006 ABC Family movie, Relative Chaos.
Carpenter and Marsters will film their Supernatural appearance the week of August 22 — after the former swings by New Orleans for a cameo in Haunted High, a just-announced Syfy original movie about teens trapped in a school by the ghost of a headmaster (played by Lost‘s M.C. Gainey). Pulp film icon Danny Trejo (Machete) costars as a possible hero, while Carpenter lords over the school’s library.
“I asked the director, ‘Can I be totally unrecognizable, using make-up effects, or do I have to be a ‘hot’ librarian?’ And he was like, ‘Hot. Librarian,’” she relates with a laugh. “For once, I want to be something different!”
Carpenter was just seen pulling “double” duty this past Monday on Lifetime’s Deadly Sibling Rivalry (encoring Saturday at 9/8c), while Marsters’ most recent TV credits include Hawaii Five-0, Smallville and Caprica.

During the Hall H panel on Sunday, the cast and crew of the popular CW drama revealed new information for the upcoming seventh season such as guest stars, returning characters and the complications the Winchesters will face this season.
The series follows Sam and Dean Winchester, two brothers bound by tragedy and blood to the one thing that runs through both their veins − hunting monsters. Over the past few seasons, Dean and Sam faced insurmountable obstacles. The power struggle between good and evil has raged on, with the new King of Hell, Crowley, ultimately emerging as their adversary. Shockingly, Crowley had made a secret deal with Sam and Dean’s closest friend, the angel Castiel, who is now a desperate freedom fighter on the losing side of a post-Apocalyptic civil war in Heaven; together, the uneasy allies sought to open a door to Purgatory, where a great untapped well of souls lie waiting to be used as the ultimate form of military power. Sam and Dean reeled from the betrayal by their friend — and raced to stop the angel and demon before they opened that dangerous, otherworldly door.
The Winchesters will find themselves in an increasingly sinister, changing landscape, up against a new foe unlike anything they’ve ever fought. They’ll find their old tricks, weapons and hiding places all rendered useless. All they’ll have is each other. And the certainty that, like the last of the cowboy outlaws, whatever they face, they’re not going down without a fight.
When the panel began, series star Jensen Ackles introduced a clip from the third episode of the new season in which he took up the director reins once again. Ackles previously directed the fourth episode of the sixth season, “Weekend at Bobby’s;” which was his directorial debut. The clip revealed that Firefly‘s own Jewel Staite will be guest starring in the new season playing an old flame of Sam’s who seems to have a dark secret and uses the fake name Amy Pond.
Ackles had minimal screen time in “Weekend at Bobby’s,” so he could focus on directing but the actor disclosed that fans would see more of Dean in this new episode which Ackles said made the gig “more difficult” the second time around.
Fans were stunned when showrunner Sera Gamble confirmed that fan favorite, Misha Collins, would not be a series regular this season. During the panel Gamble confirmed Collins’ prior comments of Castiel being present for the first few episodes but wouldn’t say anymore on the character as to not spoil anything for fans.
Gamble did let loose that not only would Jo Harvelle be returning this season but other favorites such as Crowley, Sheriff Mills, and Death will pop up in the seventh season. However, one character fans shouldn’t expect anytime soon is the prophet/writer Chuck. Gamble says that Castiel will be taking on the role of God and explained that Castiel “has always felt very strongly that his father abandoned them all. One of the questions we asked ourselves [this season] was, ‘You’re God. What do you do? How will you do things differently?’”
Regarding returning characters, in the Comic-Con edition of TV Guide Magazine Sera Gamble touched on the Winchesters’ half brother Adam and his possible return, “We have a couple of ideas. People ask me about him all the time and I promise that we haven’t forgotten about him.”
Along with the past characters returning, there will be new recurring roles this season. When asked if any new women would be coming into the brothers’ life Sera Gamble tells TV Guide that “Some of them are not gender-determined, actually. I guess that tells you that they are not love interests.”
Supernatural star Jared Padalecki told fans that the new season will take the Sam and Dean to scary new places. Viewers will finally see all the horrible things Sam did when he was an empty shell. “Sam is way out of his league,” explained Padalecki. “It’s kind of scary. … We get to see what can scare the Winchester boys.”
Ben Edlund talked a bit about the possibility of a meta-episode this season, “I don’t know that there’s much more we can do,” said Edlund, but what the executive producer hinted at the possibility that fans can see the return of the Ghostfacers in the future, or even ninjas and spaceships.
