So what’s the scoop on Season 7 of SUPERNATURAL? The cast and executive producers were keeping the secrets close to the vest during their press rounds at the 2011 Comic-Con, but we were still able to get some info out of them.
Executive producer Sera Gamble says that the first episode back in Season 7 will find Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) still reeling from the events of the cliffhanger that found their friend/angel Castiel (Misha Collins) turning bad.
“They are reeling from what’s been going on with this character that they’ve been best friends with,” says Gamble. “They didn’t see this coming from Castiel. If stuff wasn’t falling apart so fast, they would be emotionally falling apart more. Castiel has declared himself anew god to fall apart. The substance of episode 1 [Season 7] starts there.”
According to Gamble, Crowley (Mark Sheppard] will also return.
“Yes, you will see him very early in the season,” says Gamble. “Castiel said he wasn’t killing him because he had plans for him and we reveal what those plans will be. As usual he is extremely funny.”
And even though Sheppard was coy about his return, he did hint at what he would like to see for his character.
“I would like to see him on the show for a long time,” says Sheppard with devilish grin. “Have you not been amazed and enthralled thus far with him. He’s kind of evolved. I keep asking why haven’t we seen his eyes flash red.”
As for creatures, Gamble says there will be some “ghost stories coming up soon.”
“We’ll also have shapeshifting creatures, angels, demons,” she adds. “We always pull a couple of variations out of our pocket with some new creatures we will reveal over the course of some episodes.”
Executive producer Ben Edlund says they also have a creature we haven’t seen before.
“It’s a Japanese folkloric creature,” he adds.
Edlund also adds that Sam has a lot of stuff to sort through too.
“Sam has three of himself in his own head – that’s some crazy s**t,” says Edlund. “He’s going to be grappling with his own sanity, so we have lots of stuff to play.”
Most importantly, Edlund says they’ve created a very “self-contained” challenge in Season 7 to keep everything fresh and new.
“Everyone working on SUPERNATURAL is earnest and clever and wants to make it as good as they can,” says Edlund. “And the pieces we’re using for Season 7 are consistent with an overall myth. It fits into the larger story that we will tell more about later. You’ll learn more about purgatory and how all these things work as a mythic whole, while still pursuing the story. I’m surprised we kept as much coherence as we have.”
