Supernatural Scoop: CW Boss on Renewal, a Possible Season 9 and Misha Collins' Future

Supernatural Jared Padalecki Misha Collins Jensen AcklesHave no doubt: The CW president Mark Pedowitz hearts Supernatural‘s Sam and Dean.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour in Beverly Hills on Monday morning, Pedowitz put his support behind the Winchester boys, saying “there was no question” about the Season 8 renewal — and even hinted at a possible ninth (!) season.

“The guys are great,” he continued. “The show is great. We’re big believers in the show.”

Pedowitz revealed that Misha Collins’ heavenly angel Castiel will be in a “minimum of eight” Season 8 episodes — but what about the demon-hunting brothers he pals around with and their prospects beyond the upcoming run? The CW boss expressed his desire to keep the series going for a long, long time. When asked whether there have already been talks about securing stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki beyond next season, Pedowitz told reporters, “There’s always conversations that happen. I am a big Supernatural fan.”

In fact, he added, “I hope it stays on as long as I’m still here.”

  • Honestly, I just wish the show would return to what it had in the first couple of seasons where Sam and Dean had a new case each week. I like the show, but I am not a fan of the all the heaven, hell, purgatory, world ending type of stuff. I love it when each week there is a new case a waiting Sam and Dean. However, I like Cas but not as an angel. Have him as human.

  • I been watching Supernatural from the very beging and I just love the show all around. Aside from having the brothers Dean and Sam as the main characters I also tend to like Cas alot and having him on the show again makes it even better.

    I wish the writers of Supernatural will pair up Cas with a Demon (a demon with a soul that is) and help the brothers on their quest to destroy evil. Im all ears when there is a Demon helping the brothers like Ruby or Megan. Or a vampire like Elenor……sad she had to die. Love her in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and liked her more in Supernatural. Overall the Show is excellent and I hope it last beyong season 9 or 10…………thumbs up guys!!!!

  • Would be absolutely heart broken and out raged if My Favorite show on tv Supernatural was not renewed for a season 9 and beyond as long as Jared and Jensen are willing to do them!!!! !! There is to much cancelling and non renewing of fabulous shows going on these days (like tnt w/ Leverage for example)!! If they would promote the show more then it would get better and higher ratings!!!! How can u cancel or not renew a show that its fans not only Win a PCA for favorite fan following by pay out $$$$ and drive sometimes hundreds and thousands of miles to attend a convention!! I remember when MyBLoody Valentine came out and FRiday the 13th i went to watch both in theatre and the amount poeple that were packed in was unbelievable (more then for even Pirates of the Carribean) and the parents who took their young daughters to watch rated R movies!!Do they think they and all of us were their for the movie!!I beg to differ we were all there to See Jensen Ackles and Jared Padelacki!! So i say YOu cant just take away a show that is obviously loved by thousands and millions w/ out giving it a Fighting chance!!! In the world of vampires and un natural being i rate Supernatural number 1 !!Vampire Diaries in my opionin has Supernatural to thank for paving the way for its success not Twilight or anything else! Keep Supernatural on air till its stars are ready to move on !!!!!!!

    • That’s good stuff man. They can NOT take supernatural away from us! I would be ready to KILL! Absolutely heart broken. But i think they will do at least a couple more seasons, like you said its a great show and the only way they would stop producing, is if jared and jensen stopped. They will get approved for a renewal no doubt in my mind. Gotta be positive bro!

  • Myself, I just ” LOVE ” the show Supernatural. The bro’s are excellent and well in my opinion Cas is really starting to become a bad ass!! I’m not sure anymore what his purpose is on the show other than to deceive the boys, and raise problems… PLZ,, don’t get me wrong I love Castiel as well as a lot of you others the thing is I feel as though, he’s starting to bring the show DOWN. I cry when the boys do and I find myself getting so involved in this show that ” gosh ” I even seem to yell at the T.V. I do wish tho there was a way to bring back Jim Beavers- Bobby,( for those of u that may not know ) I just sat and wept when poor Bobby was taken in season 7. I wish there was more info. out there on the upcoming season 9, I’ve looked for panels, talks w/ Jared and Jensen but nothing…… Does anybody have any clue where to go??!! I’ve watched this series of this show since day 1, and WOW I’m still so happy about the fact there going to back on CW for yet another season. Now I’ll have to get season 8 and then move on to season 9 once up and of course OUT!! I love the show so much I’ve got like everything on it,, and the guys OH WOW,, They could come to my room anytime as I’m sure many of you other gals feel, The bad PART they are both married and out of my league but it don’t hurt to Dream,, Right??? Now I was wondering what u all think??!! Well,, I’ll wait….. :)

    • Hey. well first i don’t think cast is bring the show down. im mean he got into Dean and Sam life so much i think he lost apart of him and he lost his way for a mint but he slowly coming back to himself. and he is all the boys got now that bobby is gone.. and i hate bobby had to die. i like both Sam and Dean but to be real i think Sam is kind of bring the show down if it was up to me i would let Dean and cast team up.. sorry im saying
