Jensen and Jared Definitely In for a Likely 'Supernatural' Season 6


Supernatural fans have reason to be excited today. Even though the premiere of season 5 is far away, Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles recently appeared at a European convention where they gave fans a lot of hope for Supernatural season 6.


Some people worried that a sixth season would result in a completely different show, but Jensen confirmed to the Coventry Telegraph that he and Jared both have six-year contracts for the show, meaning if CW president Dawn Ostroff picks up Supernatural for season 6, Sam and Dean will both be in it.


That's the good news, but here's the not-so-good news. While Jensen and Jared have six-year contracts, creator Eric Kripke only has a five-year contract, so if the network does renew Supernatural beyond Kripke's original five-year plan, there are two options. The first is for the network to shell out some big bucks to sign him to a new contract. The second is to continue the show without Kripke.


If you think that's jumping the gun, think again. In the interview, Jared also mentioned that his "best guess" is that the show will be renewed once again. The increased ratings for season 4 plus the promise of being paired with new blood in the form of The Vampire Diaries makes Supernatural a more solid prospect than the network's other aging shows like One Tree Hill and Smallville.


What do you think? Is season 6 worth it if we get Jensen and Jared but no Kripke? Personally, I might be OK with it so long as they promoted one of the other great writers like Sera Gamble or Jeremy Carver.

ABSOLUTELY not. Dear god, that would be horrific.
Kripke is the brains, the brawn, and the reason that this show is great. I would rather the show end than see it be turned into a shadow of its former self because the administrative types aren't smart enough to leave the art to the artists. If Kripke doesn't want to continue the show, then it should absolutely go off the air.

I agree that KRipke is basically the reason the show is amazing. I would still watch even if he wasn't part of the show though, just because I love it that much. I definitely don't think the show should go on past season 6 though if it does get picked up again. I would rather the show went out with a bang rather then dwindle and burn. I am excited for the possibility of a sixth season though.

Definately NO. Yes Jensen and Jared do an awesome job bringing the characters to life and the show is better off having them play the boys, but it is Kripkie's vision and creativity that makes the show what it is. I can understand the execs being greedy and wanting it to go on, but at the expense of going on without Kripkie, it definately wont be the same.

please i hope the show end at the fifth season. i agree with lolabellies137 that it should end with a bang rather than burn. it should end with a great ending that fans will have a great memories of Supernatural.Man, this is like arguing about ending prison break a few months ago. On that note, im glad it end with a good note.

I would love to see the show continue with Kripkie of course. I would still watch though with or without him.

I personally would love to have kripke continue but i will still watch the show w/o him. Plus i would love to see supernatural continue w/ a 6th season, I think it has the potential.

dude no!...well maybe no... it depends
There are alot of open questions up in the air. With lucifer coming up in season 5 we are curious to see how that will all pan out. there is also the absence of God, personally i think it could be very difficult to deal with both prospects in just one season; however, if Kripe can leave us with a satisfactory ending then keep the story an epic, as it was originally planned out to be. I too will mourn the loss of the show; however, this show deserves a perfect ending. I believe that the genius Kripe can bring that very thing.

I'd watch it with or without Kripke. But like most have expressed, the show would not be the same without Kripke.
I'm more interested to know if Misha is on for the sixth - if it's happening. :P

I've really got mixed feelings about this. I mean, I don't know how the 5th season is going to play out so I'm not sure if the 6th season would end up being too much with or without Kripke. I know I'd still watch it, though. And since season 5 will probably focus on mending to whole Lucifer problem, I'm assuming a 6th season would focus on mending the Winchester brothers' relationship. But no matter what, I guess I'm on board.
