Apart from The CW's news that 'Flash' will soon spin off of 'Arrow,' we're still reeling from the announcement that 'Supernatural' will follow the same treatment for its ninth season. More and more details have begun to emerge from the as-yet-untitled spinoff, which will weave a backdoor pilot into 'Supernatural' season 9 and center in Chicago with a new cast of characters, but what chances do fans have of seeing any familiar faces?
'Supernatural' fans well know that the long-running CW series focuses as much on the angels, demons and monsters as the relationship between Sam and Dean Winchester, and season 9 will be no different. Despite the apparent peace between the brothers forged in season 8 finale "Sacrifice," it seems another major rift between Sam and Dean is set to blow the ninth year wide open!
Season 8 is going to be a big year for 'Supernatural.' Not only have the Winchester brothers beaten the Friday Night Death Slot curse and won a coveted Wednesday spot alongside buzz-worthy new superhero drama 'Arrow,' but Jeremy Carver will also take the reigns as show-runner from the departing Sera Gamble. As if that weren't enough, season eight's premiere marks the show's landmark 150th episode! Will one of the cast win the lucky honor of directing the show's big 1-5-0?
Just because 'Supernatural' will be airing its seventh season finale "Survival of the Fittest" (we preferred the original title, "Get Dick") tonight on the CW at 9:oo p.m., don't think plans haven't already begun for the eighth (and definitely not final) season. In addition to a new show-runner and a new night of the week, 'Supernatural' will pull out one of its old tricks for the show's eighth season premiere.
