The SUPERNATURAL cast and producers made their third ever appearance at PaleyFest this evening and fans were treated to an advance screening of the upcoming SUPERNATURAL/SCOOBY DOO crossover episode “Scoobynatural”. After the screening, the cast and producers took to the stage to talk about the show and provided a few spoilers for the rest of the season.
Apocalypse World. The alternate universe that first appeared at the end of season 12 was first pitched by producers/writers Brad Buckner and Eugenie Ross-Lemming. This gave them the opportunity to put “our characters” in a world that wasn’t at all familiar to us. “We were playing with the idea of our hunters being the hunted,” Eugenie said. As for the alternate universe character versions we’ve seen, Dabb said “they’re still the same people, but they haven’t been through the same circumstances. You want to treat them with the respect you would show the same [characters we know].” The world where Mary and Jack are now trapped isn’t the only alternate dimension and we’ve seen at least one more world (The Bad Place). That being said, Dabb doesn’t think they’ll necessarily be going to new alternate dimensions every week, but they don’t rule out the chance of going to another place if the story takes them there.
The Winchesters. Jared Padalecki thinks that “Sam is fine” right now, but we’ll see Sam go to the “nth degree to give it all he’s got to try and make the world a better place this season.” As for Dean, Jensen Ackles said that the show has an “ever-evolving motivation between the [brothers].” Dean had a lot of loss at the beginning of the season, but he’s “not going it alone and he has his brother to help pick him up when he’s down”. Dean has started to get his confidence back and as we get “close to the end of the season here, we’ll see Dean step up in a big way.”
The Future of SUPERNATURAL. As for season 14, Robert Singer hinted that the Empty might be a place they re-visit “next year”, hinting that the show is looking to the future. The network hasn’t announced a renewal yet, but it’s likely SUPERNATURAL will return.
SUPERNATURAL returns with an all new episode on March 29 on The CW (see photos from “Scoobynatural”).
