If you’re looking for a few more details on the future of “Supernatural,” we have them for you here! Of course, just don’t expect too many major plot points in the process, given that this is more about production details.
For those of you who are into the behind-the-scenes workings of things, co-executive producer Jim Michaels confirmed yesterday that tech scouting is underway for the fourth episode of the season, which will be directed by none other than executive producer Robert Singer who directed the at-times emotional “Pac-Man Fever” from earlier this year along with “Torn and Frayed.”
Meanwhile, the writer for this particular episode also worked on “Pac-Man Fever” in Robbie Thompson who also wrote our other favorite of the Charlie episodes in “LARP and the Real Girl,” mostly because it actually managed to check every box for what we hoped that a “Supernatural” episode about live-action role-playing would be. Some of his other recent credits include “Goodbye Stranger” and “Bitten.”
For those of you production newbies out there, the reason why there are different writers / directors throughout the season is simply a time issue: Many episodes are worked on simultaneously in different stages of production, and there simply are not enough hours of the day when you have 22 or more episodes to make in a season.
If you missed out on some of the details surrounding the first three episodes of the new season, we have in order, “I Think I’m Gonna Like It Here,” “Devil May Care,” and “I’m No Angel.” These episodes seem to be thematically tied to a certain extent, with the titles alluding to stories all around the fall of Castiel and some of the other angels to earth.
