News broke out at Comic Con about a spinoff of the cult series.
Nine seasons in and Supernatural is expanding its cult empire.
A spinoff of the long-running drama, which stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, is being developed at the CW, executive producer Bob Singer revealed to reporters at San Diego Comic-Con 2013 on Sunday.
The network plans to introduce the potential series as a backdoor pilot in episode 20, which will be written by Andrew Dabb.
The spinoff, however, will not be centered on a character Supernatural fans know and love but on a new character introduced in the episode, who will then anchor the new series, should it be picked up. While details are slim, the series is said to have a more urban feel than Supernatural.
This isn’t the first time the CW has decided to work on a spinoff of one of their popular series: The Originals, which focuses on three characters from The Vampire Diaries, premieres this fall.
After the read more, you can read what was talked about at the Comic Con Panel.
‘Supernatural’ season 8 literally went down in flames with this past season finale “Sacrifice,” but you’d never know it from the raucous Hall H panel from Comic-Con 2013! Fan favorites Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Mark Sheppard, Misha Collins, executive producers Robert Singer and Jeremy Carver, and a special guest packed the halls to preview the new season and answer questions of the road ahead, so what new ‘Supernatural’ shenanigans can we expect from season 9?
Amid the sizzle reel of season 9, we caught a new scene of Sam returning to the Men of Letters bunker, and nearly getting hit by a crossbow bolt from a panicked Kevin Tran! The exchange is soon followed by a healthy-looking Sam dragging Crowley into the base, where the brothers interrogate the Hell King and demand the identity of every possessing demon on the planet. Crowley balks, but the boys threaten to leave him alone with his newfound humanity, terrifying him.
In the last episode of season 8, the characters of Supernatural set out to cure a demon.
Not just any demon, however. The Winchester brothers (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) decided that, since Crowley (Mark Sheppard) had been keeping his demons away from them, they would have to take on the King of Hell himself.
Things didn’t go quite as planned for the hunters and Crowley was left in a state of limbo as “Sacrifice” came to an end.
While Sam (Padalecki) attempted to cure him, Crowley clearly exhibited some form of emotion as he yelled about deserving, and needing, to be loved. Although the King of Hell looked rather confused to hear himself say such sentimental statements, his change in demeanor left the door open for a new take on the character in season 9.
“I wouldn’t say he’s cured, the situation was never finished,” Sheppard told MTV on Saturday at the San Diego Comic-Con. “I’m pretty certain, I’m very certain, that it has had a profound effect on him, and it’s not exactly going to be the easies thing for him to shrug off.”
Crowley might need to push past these issues quickly simply for the sake of keeping his position as the ruler downstairs. Dean (Ackles) and Sam accidently let Abaddon (Alaina Huffman), the last surviving Knight of Hell, out into the world again and she appears determined to knock Crowley off his throne.
