Comic-Con 2010 is in the books, and this year's event was another celebration of all things geeky - and many that are not. TV Guide Magazine patrolled the halls and hallways of the San Diego Convention Center, ducking light sabers, caped crusaders and pen stabbings to file these tidbits: - For its final Comic-Con appearance, Smallville graduated to the big time, filling the 4,000-plus seat Ballroom 20, the largest room for TV shows. The fans, many of whom camped out overnight to get in, were treated to an unexpected cameo from John Schneider, who played the late Jonathan Kent for five seasons. He will be back for an appearance that he already filmed, called the role the most cherished of his career and talked about the father-son relationship he developed with Tom Welling during the show's early seasons. Since he didn't have a name placard on the dais he put his driver's license out, and when the cameras panned in for a close-up for the monitors in the room, he realized that his home address was revealed. "I guess I'll be seeing you all for dinner," he quipped. Allison Mack, who will only appear in a handful of episodes this year, was not in attendance, but news broke that her character, Chloe Sullivan, will make her long-awaited DC Comics debut in the pages of Action Comics this fall. Finally, the panelists all offered heartfelt thanks to the fans, capped by executive producer Kelly Sounders' touching sign off, "thank you so much for a whole decade of support."

I feel like all I'm doing lately is writing spoiler articles for Supernatural (like this one about new and returning characters that I posted earlier this week). But that's okay, I guess. It makes me happy and a lot of you seem to like it as well. Ausiello recently spoke with series creator (aka God) Eric Kripke, who had this to share about the season 6 storyline, as well as giving reasons why he's stepping down from his showruner position and ceding day-to-day control to executive producer Sera Gamble. Why is he stepping down then? Kripke had always planned a five season arc for the show and now that it's returning for a sixth season, he feels the time is right to step down. But don't worry, he still plans on being involved â including writing an episode, directing an episode and being involved in the episode pitch meetings: To Read More Click Here .
In a new interview with EW's Michael Ausiello, former Supernatural showrunner Eric Kripke talked about why he stepped down, what his role will be for season 6 and what new showrunner Sera Gamble has in store. For me, here are the three major revelations. - Kripke is still involved, though he only plans on writing one episode this season and directing one. That should be exciting since he's only directed two episodes in the show's history, the last one being the season 4 finale. - Monster origins will be a big story of this season. I'm kind of excited at the possibilities of exploring where monsters like wendigos, werewolves and vampires come from. It feels like a completely different kind of story that can go down some very interesting paths. To Read More Click Here .
The CW's "Supernatural" has been a considerable presence at San Diego Comic-Con since 2007. In summer 2010, series stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles return for the first time since 2008. They'll be joined by co-stars Misha Collins and Jim Beaver, as well as executive producers Eric Kripke, Ben Edlund, and new showrunner Sera Gamble to discuss the upcoming Season 6. Fans who attend the panel are sure to be in for a treat. In the past, the "Supernatural" presentation has featured the previous season's gag reel, a surprise invasion by the cast of the "Ghostfacers" web series spin-off, and in 2008, fans watched a sneak preview of the first few minutes of the Season 4 premiere. There's no word yet on what Warner Bros has up their sleeves this year, but we'd expect some surprises. "Supernatural" is currently filming Season 6 in Vancouver. The first episode, "Exile on Main Street," will premiere this fall in the series' new Friday at 9 p.m. ET timeslot. Ackles makes his directorial debut on the fourth episode of the season. Source Here
Ok, I give up. I have absolutely no idea what the heck is going to happen in season 6 of Supernatural. Now that the newest casting spoilers have been making the rounds, I am officially ceasing to even speculate what's in store for the Winchester brothers next season and can only hope that Comic Con (the Supernatural panel will take place on Sunday, July 25) will shed some light on what to expect in September. Before moving onto the new spoilers, let's recap. We already know the show intends to return to its more monster-of-the-week roots, but still with a season-long story arc. We already know that Sam will pull Dean out of his "normal life" and back into a life of hunting. We already know that Grandpa Campbell (having, you know, DIED back in the 1970s) will somehow become a recurring characteron the show next season (as Mitch Pileggi has been cast as a recurring character). The return of Grandpa Campbell alone confuses me, because I have no idea whether that will occur because of time travel or resurrection. To Read More Click Here .
Supernatural began filming in Vancouver this week for season 6. However, the show is starting out very different than normal. According to Zap2It, the first episode being filmed will be the fourth episode to air. SPOILER WARNING: Stop reading now if you want to avoid spoilers about Supernatural's sixth season. The reason for the shift is that the fourth episode will be directed by star Jensen Ackles and in order to give him enough time to properly prepare for his directorial debut, he's filming first to avoid being overworked with starring and directing. The episode, titled "Weekend at Bobby's," is obviously a very heavy Bobby episode. Jim Beaver tweeted "I knew being the single lead on a series is the hardest job in the acting biz," The implication isn't just that Bobby will be the star, but also that Sam and Dean will be marginalized.

It's official: Mitch Pileggi is returning to Supernatural as Sam and Dean's presumed-dead grandpa - and not for some one-off guest stint. As I first teased in Ask Ausiello, the X-Files vet will appear in multiple episodes during season 6. 'I'm a longtime fan of Mitch's work,Â gushes executive producer/new showrunner Sera Gamble. And we all thought he did an amazing job the first time around, so we're excited he was game to [return].Â To Read More Click Here .
In an interview with Jensen Ackles, he told a few secrets for season 6. One of them being that season 6 will be set in the future to see where the characters are now. Does this seem like a good idea or will it just fail in the making?
The summer is a pretty dry time for Supernatural news, but here are the latest bits of news to keep you excited until the boys return for season 6 in September. -According to Examiner, Jensen Ackles will be directing an episode of the show's sixth season. There have been rumors for a while that we was going to direct, and it looks like season 6 will finally be his time to step behind the camera on Supernatural. -According to EW's Michael Ausiello, Supernatural is looking to bring back Mitch Pileggi for multiple episodes in season 6. Fans definitely remember Pileggi as Samuel Campbell, Sam and Dean's grandpa who presumably died after being possessed by Azazel. Is Grandpa Winchester alive? Does this mean season 6 will feature a lot more time travel? I'm not sure how Supernatural could do it, but since she show's biggest strength is the family issues the characters deal with, I'm in favor of bringing back all the Winchester relatives you can.
