If you love “Supernatural,” we have some great news coming your way based on what is coming out out of NJCon this weekend — it looks like we will be seeing more of the show as we know it so long as The CW wants them around.
Based on some Twitter messages that are coming in from fan site WinchesterBros.com, it looks as though both Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles are going to be under contract for two more seasons of the show so long as it is renewed — and if the ratings hold up from last year, we have a good feeling that it will be. Network programming head Mark Pedowitz is reportedly a big fan of the series, and moving it to a night that is not competing with both “Fringe” and “Grimm” — and giving it a lead-in with “Arrow” that could become one of the biggest hits of the new season — are all part of a recipe for success. This is all great news, but having Padalecki and Ackles around is essential — they are the only two regulars who have been there since the beginning, and it’s impossible to have this show without them.
On some related news, Misha Collins has said that he is going to be a part of more of season 8 than he was initially expecting, but that does not make it clear as to whether or not this is the eight episodes that we already know about. Meanwhile, Collins did emphasize that he wants to be a part of the show so long as they will have him, and that he will be making new episodes from his “mom’s basement” until 2050.
“Supernatural” is set to officially premiere on The CW on October 3, making it one of the first shows of the season to start up following “Hart of Dixie” the day before.
