"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.
