I have in my hands the coveted Comic Con Edition of TV Guide for 2015, hot off the presses. As in year’s past, there is an interview with Jeremy Carver about the upcoming season. Below is that entire interview, which was done by Ileane Rudloph of TV Guide.
I wouldn’t say there are a lot of spoilers in here. He’s very vague. But, it gives you some idea of the direction.
For those interested, the magazine also has a page on making the 200th episode (Fan Fiction), a look at favorites that have been killed off (they need a freaking book for all that!), and the interview with Jeremy Carver.
My edition has the cover of Arrow on it, so there are some really great previews from other shows too. I’ll be featuring those on our sister site TV For The Rest of Us.
In the closing moments of the season finale, we saw the Darkness envelop the brothers inside their Impala. What’s next?
Fans should be prepared for both the expected and unexpected. What we have planned so far is pretty wonderful, but it’s very hard for me to tease it.
If Dean had ended up killing Sam and going into exile to remove the Mark of Cain as Death had advised, the Darkness would never have returned. Will Dean have regrets about his decision?
There’s no question the boys will feel the burden of having been part of releasing the Darkness. It’s tough for me to believe, however Dean will get to that place. You might have to file this one under the price Dean was willing to pay.
Instead of killing Sam, Dean murdered Death! Does this mean everyone on Earth is immortal?
The question now is: We killed Death, but can you kill the idea of death? We’ll be looking forward to answering it in Season 11.
After several seasons of Dean or Sam being evil or cursed, will they finally be working side by side this year?
As always all I can say is yes—and no.
Is the Darkness your biggest bad since Lucifer and the threat of the Apocalypse in Season 5?
It’s safe to say this is the biggest thing to happen to the boys in a long time. We’re starting to explore prebiblical territory, a part of the universe’s history that hasn’t been written about before. This is what happened before the Bible begins.
In the finale, Rowena’s magic caused a crazed Castiel to attempt to slaughter the King of Hell, her hated son Crowley. Will either survive to help the brothers?
Based on what happened in that room, both of these guys have far bigger things to deal with than the boys at the top of the season.
So who will the Winchesters turn to for help?
The scariest proposition for Dean and Sam is they don’t know exactly what they need because they don’t know exactly what they’re dealing with. They only know what Death has told them. Everything after that is pretty much fresh snow, because so few people know about this.
Finally, what is your big theme for Season 11?
You can’t outrun your past.
Also, here’s a quote by Carver in the photo caption:
“What fearsome reign the darkness will bring is yet unknown. Death [was afraid] he’d be destroyed by its coming.”
In the other photo caption of Crowley and Castiel, it says (not a Carver quote):
Though Crowley was in peril from a bewitched Castiel, both will play big parts next season.
