CW President Mark Pedowitz, who to "Supernatural" fans is our most favorite person at The CW ever, took center stage at the Television Critic's Association winter press tour to talk about his network. As it does every year in the history of the network, someone asked about "Supernatural's" future. Here's what was said, via The Hollywood Reporter:
"While no decision has been made on a ninth season of the Jared Padalecki-Jensen Ackles thriller, Pedowitz said both leads are under contract for next season. "Creatively, the show is in a good place," he told reporters of a show for which he has been a big supporter, noting that he's pleased with its total-viewers increase after moving from Fridays to Wednesdays (paired with breakout Arrow) this season."
Michael Ausiello at TV Line considers a ninth season a forgone conclusion (as do I):
"At the The CWâ€™s portion of the Television Critics Associationâ€™s winter press tour, network president Mark Pedowitz was bullish on the prospects of the show continuing. â€œWe are pleased with how Wednesday night has worked out with Arrow and Supernatural,â€ he said. â€œCreatively, the show is in a great place. Thereâ€™s always a good shot [it could return].â€
Here's something interesting from Variety that involves Misha Collins:
"The CW is looking to continue its digital reach and will continue offering online-only programming. "Stupid Hype" debuted last year, and Pedowitz said the CW is developing a toon series for the Web with Misha Collins ("Supernatural") and a live-action Web series with Wilson Bethel."
Yay, Supernatural love! It never gets old.
