Following this season’s heart-pounding finale of Supernatural, fans were left wondering what’s next in store for the Winchester brothers.
With Sam stuck in Hell and Dean living a quiet life (a life he never knew he wanted), it should be interesting to see how the show’s writers get the brothers back together again.
Thankfully, fans won’t have to wait until Supernatural’s season six premiere (airing in the fall) to find out what’s going to happen – as The CW was nice enough to discuss what’s next for the series:
“Season six will be a season of mystery and shadow. Heaven and Hell have been left in complete disarray since the apocalyptic events of season five. And now, monsters, angels and demons roam across a lawless and chaotic landscape. And so Dean Winchester, who has retired from hunting and sworn never to return, finds himself being pulled back into his old life – pulled back by none other than Sam Winchester, who has escaped from Hell. The two reunite to beat back the rising tide of creatures and demon-spawn, but they quickly realize that neither are who they used to be, their relationship isn’t what it used to be, and that nothing is what it seems.”
Not only was the season six plot revealed, but it was also announced that the series will be moving to Friday’s at 10PM (starting next season). Hopefully, this move to Fridays is the result of a super secret CW master plan – not a sign that the network is looking to get rid of the series.
One thing the press releases didn’t mention was whether long-time Supernatural regulars Jim Beaver and newcomer Misha Collins would be returning – as fan favorites Bobby Singer and Castiel, respectively. Although, with the upcoming storyline still focused on Heaven and Hell, I’m willing to bet they’re return is almost certain.
I’m not sure what interests me more about next season: the disarray of Heaven and Hell or Sam and Dean’s relationship. While everyone loves a demon battle, one can’t deny the problems that will come from Sam dragging Dean out of his new, quiet, lifestyle.
On some level, it’s similar to Supernatural‘s pilot – only reversed. Considering how great the first season the show was, I’d say that’s a compliment. Unless of course, they’re merely running out of ideas (considering the recent departure of creator Eric Kripke).
What do you think of the season six plot for Supernatural? Will you be following the show to Friday night?
