Eric Kripke spills the Supernatural secrets (video)

The creator of the increasingly popular Supernatural proved eager to share the goods about his supposedly final year. Eric Kripke spoke enthusiastically to press at Comic-Con, revealing some of the plans for the upcoming season.

But first, the question on everyone’s mind was, “Are you really going to end Supernatural this season?”

Although he previously has said that the series would conclude after the fifth season, Kripke hedges,

The honest truth was, because I have low self esteem, I never dreamt the show would go five years. Never in my wildest dreams did I think we would make it to 100 episodes…. So now that we’re actually here, and ratings are getting better and better, and we’re staring down the barrel at season six, I’m a little amazed and bewildered. My feeling is I have a five-year plan…  [and] I’m going to finish this particular chapter. I’m not going to drag it out; I’m not going to dilute it by trying to stretch it over years. And this particular chapter is going to end, but there’s no reason a new chapter can’t begin.

Kripke went on to discuss the exciting new season of the series. Had I been spoilerphobic I might have gone into shock. Watch at your own peril— you’ve been warned!

  1. Awesome! Around the 3:11 mark, look at the redhead at the other table in the background introducing herself to Sera Gamble. That’s me! I really really loved the way you edited this interview and I love Kripke’s answers. Great job, thanks for sharing.

    • That’s great! I’m pleased to have caught you meeting Sera on film :)
