The next new episode of Supernatural is still a long time away, but the CW just released a new behind-the-scenes look at "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid," airing March 25. This Supernatural episode is a good, old zombie-killing adventure with Sam, Dean and Bobby shooting their way through the undead. The behind the scenes action is filmed and narrated by star Jim Beaver who takes us backstage at Supernatural. Perhaps my favorite part is seeing Kim Rhodes, a guest star in this episode, as Sheriff Mills. Not only is she the mom from The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, but Jim Beaver fans will surely recognize that he happened to play a character named Sheriff Mills on Harper's Island. Source & Video
From EW's Michael Ausiello: Aw, hell. I had a bad feeling Supernatural 's early season 6 renewal came with an asterisk. Sources confirm to me exclusively that creator Eric Kripke will be stepping down as the CW drama's day-to-day showrunner next season. Executive producer Sera Gamble, who has been with the show since season 1 and is awesome, is poised to succeed him. But, and this is a big but, Kripke will remain actively involved in the show - and not just in name only. Although CW and Warner Bros. reps declined to comment, a Supernatural insider assures me that Kripke and his current co-showrunner, Robert Singer, will continue to function as hands-on executive producers. "Eric and Bob will be working very closely with Sera," says the source. "They are not abandoning the show." Kripke has long said that he envisioned Supernatural as a five-season show. But in an interview last August, he clarified that stance. "I'm looking at this season as the [last] chapter in this particular story," he told me. "That doesn't mean there can't be a new story. Buffy did it. The X-Files did it. You close a chapter on a big mythology storyline and then you begin a new one." Asked whether he would be involved in a possible sixth season, Kripke hedged, "I don't know. I'm going to cross that bridge when I get to it." Kripke is said to be finalizing a new deal with Warner Bros. that will feature a big development component. In other words, his diminished role on Supernatural will free him up to create another awesome show. It's all about the silver lining, kids! C'mon, work with me here! Okay, fine. I'm sure all you're seeing is the dark cloud that is Kripke's big (euphemism alert!) career transition, so use the comments section to work through your anger issues. Source

Supernatural is now in the last, brutally long hiatus of season, with five weeks of reruns until the show returns on March 25. On the plus side, it'll be eight straight episodes after that. For now, Supernatural fans can get excited by studying the trailer for the next new episode, "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid." It looks like a Bobby-centric episode where his wife returns as a zombie. That's right: zombies. So enjoy this video that's tastier than Sam's brain. Supernatural returns with new episodes March 25 at 9pm on the CW. Source & Preview
After introducing Cupid and Famine, Supernatural will be introducing yet another mythical being. Baldur, also known as the God of Light, will be gracing the fifth season, and according to Digital Spy, actor Adam Croasdell has been cast to play the role. "It's fantastic being a part of such a popular show and exciting to be in the American arena. I'm looking forward to the challenge," the Zimbabwe-born British actor tells Digital Spy of his Supernatural debut. Croasdell, 29, is perhaps best known for his role as Dr. Al Jenkins on EastEnders. He has played various characters in Smack the Pony and is credited for portraying Sebastian Montgomery on The Chase. He has also appeared in Holby City, Peak Practice, London's Burning, Agatha Christie's Cat Among the Pigeons, Ultimate Force, and The Prince and Me 3: Royal Honeymoon. In Norse mythology, Baldur is the son of Odin and Frigg, and is associated with light because he's so bright (intelligent) that light shined from him. Also associated with beauty, love and happiness, he is loved by both gods and men and is considered to be the best of the gods. At this point, though, it's not clear how Baldur will be introduced on Supernatural or what role he will play in the Winchesters' fight against the Apocalypse. Source Here

When it returns, the Winchester brothers will fight flesh-eating zombies who want to turn the whole town into chew toys. One highlight seen in the preview is the appearance of Bobby's dead wife. In season 3 episode "Dream a Little Dream of Me", it was revealed that Bobby got into hunting after witnessing the possession of his wife and killing her. He bears immense guilt for what he did to her, and has taken some sort of unwritten vow to become involved with the supernatural to prevent what happened to him from ever happening to anyone else.

It's Valentine's Day on Supernatural, or as Dean would call it the "Unattached Drifter Christmas," but don't expect Dean to hit the bars and hook up with desperate lonely girls anytime soon. It looks like something is seriously wrong with him and we find out why tonight in the episode fittingly called "My Bloody Valentine." This should be a good installment considering that Supernatural will go on a five-week hiatus after this. I can only imagine something big going down tonight as we meet two new characters: Cupid and Famine. Cupid isn't the little flying fat kid in diapers we've come to know fables. He's actually a lower order of angel or a third class cherub, and apparently, there are plenty of others like him all over the world. Cas thinks he's causing the townspeople to kill each other for love so he drags the Winchester boys for a mission to stop him. While Cupid seems dangerous based on Cas' description, his sweet, warm fuzzy persona tells you otherwise. The best thing about him, though, is his "handshake." While Cas, Dean and Sam are barking up the wrong tree, Famine, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, wreaks havoc in town which explains why people are drinking and eating themselves to death.

A few weeks ago, BuddyTV reported that sci-fi favorite Michael Shanks, who is best known for his role as Dr. Daniel Jackson on Stargate SG-1, will soon be gracing the world of Supernatural. At the time, though, not much has been revealed about Shanks' character except that he will play a man in a local militia. Most recently, Shanks spoke to Newsarama about his Supernatural debut, as well as a few details about his character Rob. Warning: Minor Spoilers Ahead!!! "The character's name is Rob, and he's a member of the Sacrament Lutheran Church, and basically it's a township that has pretty much organized to fight the demon apocalypse that's coming," Shanks revealed. "They're not running and screaming. They're hunkering down. They've figured out a way to fight and whatnot. They boys come across them and are quite enamored by they way they've organized themselves. They have a sort of militia...when a tragedy occurs in Rob's family he sort of takes a bit of a hardline approach when it comes to his beliefs. I'll leave it at that because it starts getting into spoiler territory beyond that." Shanks, who recently appeared as Hawkman on Smallville, acknowledges that he didn't land a pivotal role on Supernatural but asserts that he had a blast working with the cast and crew of the show. "I had a relatively minor role in it, working with Jared [Padalecki] and Jensen [Ackles], and a few other actors, fighting some demons and throwing down with the boys. I think that will be out in a couple months. The episode is called, I think, '99 Problems'. I'm not featured quite prominently in it, but it was a lot of fun to play in that universe. It fit into my schedule quite handily. That's why I did it," he said. "99 Problems" is the 17th episode of Supernatural's fifth season. This installment also marks the 99th episode of the show.
