'Supernatural' to 'end with a bang' in 2010 (but there's a catch)

Supernatural creator Eric Kripke is sticking by his word that his CW thriller will bow out next May after five seasons. Sort of.


I did set out [to] tell a five-season storyline, the exec maintains. Quite frankly, I never expected [the show] to make it to five years. But now that we're in our fifth year, I have every intention of ending the story with a bang and not drawing it out or watering it down.


Relax, Supe Nazis. Here's that catch: That having been said, Kripke continues, ''I'm looking at this season as the last chapter in this particular story. 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.


One of the things I like about this show is we don't draw out mysteries endlessly, he adds. We'll answer a bunch of questions this season and then pose some new ones next season.''


Of course, that's assuming there is a next season. The CW has yet to renew Supernatural for a sixth go-round. And even if the show does come back, would Kripke still be involved? I don't know, hedges Supe's fearless leader, who doesn't have a deal in place beyond season 5. I'm going to cross that bridge when I get to it.


What say you, Supe fans? Would you prefer to see Sam and Dean go out with a bang next May? Or are you cool with the show continuing on and running the risk of limping to the finish line like The X-Files and Buffy? And the even bigger question: Is there Supernatural life after Kripke?

What can follow after war between heaven and hell? I dunno, sixth season could be pretty lame. I say they end it as the great show it is. ;)

Let them have their sixth season maybe they come up with something fun and interesting and anyways it's the things that happen between the brothers that makes this show so cool. And when you throw in some new beautiful women for them to srew around with, maybe fight over one and were set for an other 2 or 3 season

Well, why not a sixth season?Maybe they discover a (half-)sister or a girlfriend/baby for one of them ;)
I think if the writers have enough ideas it would be fun, but only then...

I would not be dissapointed if they quite all the heaven and hell bullshit and just went back to the original fighting weird monsters with crazy/creepy/and HILARIOUS twists. Remember the giant teddy bear that stole all the porn and alchohol? that was freaking hilarious! hahahaha.

I take it then that they both survive at the end of season 5. In that case, if there is a 6th season it could end with the death of one (or both) brother(s) as a series finale.
If Kripke is not involved though, then I say don't bother.
Also, looking at what Dawn Ostroff has been doing to the CW I won't be surprised if it ends at season 5.

A few years ago the idea was tossed around about a spin-off focusing on Samuel Colt. From the sounds of what was said, it was to be set in the 'Wild West' but with... a modern twist to things, something like A Knights Tale.
If Supernatural was end after the fifth season, I'm hoping Kripke would like to explore the 'past' of the world that he has created. Or atleast that is my hope.

Personally i think that there should be a season six where dean and sammy go around educating people and uniting the human race for war on the demons
