Supernatural Will End In 2010, Except Maybe Not, But Sort Of

Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello has a scoop from Supernatural creator Eric Kripke about the end of days for the Brothers Winchester. What’s the word? As previously reported, Supernatural will indeed come to an end with this year’s season five – to borrow a weasely phrase from Obi Wan – “from a certain point of view.”
See, there’s ending and then there’s “ending.” Kripke tells EW that while we are indeed nearing the end of Kripke’s planned five-season arc, that doesn’t mean he couldn’t pick up with a brand-new arc afterwards. As he tells Ausiello, “Buffy did it. The X-Files did it. You close a chapter on a big mythology storyline and then you begin a new one.” Let’s hope any potential Supernatural future skews more toward the former than the latter. I don’t want to see Robert Patrick and Annabeth Gish showing up as long-lost Winchesters, is what I’m saying.
It’s all moot at this point anyway, since the show hasn’t been officially picked up for a sixth season yet. Supernatural is one of the few shows that has actually gotten better over the years, so I say as long as they’ve got some steam in the creativity engine, keep on rollin’. And if not, there’s always comics…
