Did you catch “Bloodlines,” the April 29th episode of Supernatural? It was an oddly Sam and Dean-light episode, focusing instead on the monster clan beefs in modern-day Chicago.
The CW really hoped you’d like “Bloodlines,” because they planned to use the episode as a backdoor pilot for a Bloodlines spinoff series. Even if fans didn’t gravitate toward the mopey, moody world of supernatural gang warfare, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the CW is still really interested in spinning a new series out of Supernatural, which is one episode away from its ninth season finale.
Speaking with reporters, The CW president Mark Pedowitz said that the network was really high on Supernatural and were looking to do something else with the brand in the future. And by “future,” I mean this summer: Pedowitz said that network executives will start discussions on the fate of a spinoff in June and July.
“I’ve already spoken to the creator and the studio. They know that we want to develop once more next season, a Supernatural spinoff. What it is and what it isn’t yet is still in the air.”
Supernatural has been a show without a strong purpose for a couple of years now, living on the charisma of its two leads, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki. After Season 5 more or less wrote the show a perfect, closed ending, strong ratings brought it back for a sixth, season, leading us to wars in heaven, wars in hell, monster scholars living in bunkers, and Sam and Dean’s on again/off-again feelings of filial loyalty and willingness to slay some demons.
So where would you like to see Supernatural go?
