TCA 2014: Jeremy Carver and stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles address questions on the long-running CW drama
“Supernatural” showrunner Jeremy Carver and stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles looked back on their nine seasons of the show with pride and spoke a bit about what to expect on Season 10.
When we last left the brothers, Dean Winchester (Ackles) has been turned into a demon, the very thing he and his brother, Sam (Padalecki), had dedicated their lives to slaying.
“We’ll see, of course, a side of Dean that we’ve never see in Demon Dean,” said Carver. “We’ll be staying with Demon Dean for more than one episode. You’ll probably see a side of Demon Dean that you won’t expect. We’re really excited about that.”
Carver also said that while Sam is hunting for his brother, “another rather mysterious character who is on the same hunt will be causing all kinds of complications for the boys.”
And what about Castiel (Misha Collins)? “Castiel is very much in the picture at the beginning of Season 10,” Carver said.
He continued, “His grace is sinking and he could die if he doesn’t find a way to stop it.”
In regards to when the show should meet its end, Padalecki said he’ll know when it’s time.
“If the show quality diminishes, which I don’t think it will in [Carver’s] capable hands,” Padalecki said. “If the show gets to the spot where we’ve said what needs to be said, I truly, deeply love the character of Sam Winchester. I turn 32 years-old tomorrow and I’ve spent nine years of my life with him. I don’t want him to be broken down into something I don’t respect.”
“There’s so much story to tell, which is remarkable to think about since we’re on Season 129 now,” Carver added.
