'Supernatural' Season 6 Talk Resurfaces at TCAs - Featured


Every time CW president Dawn Ostroff takes questions from the press, we always get the same debate: will there be a sixth season for Supernatural?


Over the weekend, Ostroff spoke at the January press tour for the Television Critics Association, and once again she was asked whether season 6 is going to happen for Supernatural. While there's little new in her answer, things are definitely looking up for fans who want more Sam and Dean.


Ostroff talked about how pleased she is with the creativity of the writers this season, the boost in ratings, particularly among women, and the fact that Supernatural is a very good fit with the network's newest hit, The Vampire Diaries.


She also talked about creator Eric Kripke. While every fan knows that he came into the show with a five-year plan, Ostroff believes he has more than enough talent and creativity to keep Supernatural going, as does his writing staff. According to her, Kripke is keeping a very open mind about a possible season 6.


None of this should come as a surprise, as the CW is desperate to keep hold of anything that works. The network is struggling with a very week Tuesday night lineup of '90s reboots and a general lack of original programming.


With repeats on Tuesdays and Wednesdays until March, the CW will only be airing five hours of original programming per week for the next two months. That's hardly enough to sustain a major network, so Ostroff is certainly hoping and praying that Supernatural will stick around for another year.

if kripke says no to a season six then it shouldnt happen, but if hes up for it i say lets do it. however if he came in with a 5 year plan, if he has to pull it into a 6 year then i hope it doesnt drag as Supernatural is my favourite series, on par with Lost, and if the series finale of that goes tits up (which i really hope does not happen, it has to finish with a great ending, all questions answered) then i will have high hopes for Supernatural. Just dont disapoint the fans.

no more season 6!!! it has to end because of Kripke's primary goal, as far as I would like to see dean and sam for another season, there will be that chance that will make this awesome series not work.

Nobody wants seventeen more seasons of Supernatural more than I do, but there has to be respect for the creative process, and I don't want one of my favourite shows of all time to start sucking because the network forces the writers to pull an extra season out of their asses.
There's a simple solution: Make a spin-off. Every SPN fan will tune in. The network gets a show with a built-in fan base, the fans get more Supernatural - sort of - and Supernatural gets to go out the way it was meant to.

Btw, what the hell does she mean "Supernatural is a very good fit with [...] The Vampire Diaries"? Talk about apples and oranges. These two shows are in two different LEAGUES, lady.
