Supernatural's Producers Are Already Eyeing Season 7

It's mid-March, so it's time to start talking about whether or not Supernatural will be back for another season and we Supernatural fans are crazy like that. Last year's nail-biting was particularly daunting, as the original five-season arc had wrapped, and creator Eric Kripke was leaving his post as everyday showrunner. But executive producer Sera Gamble stepped up, and the CW granted the show a sixth season, for better or for worse. Overall viewers are down a bit, and fans are divided on the actual quality of the current season. So does that mean we're not getting anymore Winchester adventures?

Eric Kripke thinks the Impala will be revving for at least one more season. "We're looking pretty good [for a seventh season]," he told E! Online at Sunday's L.A.-based Paley Fest. "We're bullish enough on it that we cliffhang the finale."

So there you go. Kripke feels good about it, which, if I remember correctly, is different from what he was thinking around this time last season. Gamble also acknowledged the question, albeit more cautiously, saying, "We have some stuff cliffhanging at the end of Season 6, so hopefully, knock on wood, we have a Season 7."

If you look at The CW's schedule, things actually do look good for a seventh season. With Smallville flying up, up, and away for the last time this May, the network will be looking to veteran series to help launch new ones. And consider a pair of high-profile sci-fi series currently in development at the network: Secret Circle, about a teen who is actually a witch and that's written by Vampire Diaries author L.J. Smith, and Awakening, about two sisters at odds with one another during the onset of a zombie apocalypse.

It seems like a no-brainer to pair up Secret Circle with The Vampire Diaries, positioning Awakening as the perfect candidate to match up with Supernatural. You'd get brothers fighting demons and such for one hour, and then sisters fighting zombies for another hour. And if Awakening gets the sort of attention I think it will get (zombies are so hot right now!), they won't want to stick it on Fridays, meaning Supernatural could get moved out of its Friday-night timeslot... and away from Fringe.

Hey, it's a good theory, right?

Supernatural returns on the CW with new episodes on April 15.

Hello!Sorry to all friends saying that the "angel plot" wasn t interesting!!I totally disagree!!!!It is far better for me finding out clues for a bigger story, than simply huntings of freaky creatures!THe "angel plot" in Season 5, was very intriguing unlike the monotonous and "seen all before" fisrt half of Season 6, with all these monster huntings!Hope we see a lot of "angel plot" in Season 7

I would love to see a season 7 for Supernatural. I have watched every episode and that is my favorit show. I would love to see some more some more episodes like season 2 and 3. I love to when they are suspensful and scare edge of your seat episodes. I would love to see the trickster come back. I want to see scary jump out of my seat episodes, that to me is supernatural. I love the funny spoof as well.

i think they should bring back ruby in season 7 and make it that in season 3 she went to hell and in season 4 it was a different demon posing as ruby plus she and castiel should get together because no one would expect it and they both are my favorite characters

This is more than just two brothers fighting demons and angels and all the others creatures. Come that seventh season and be careful about that final. because i am very sensitive when it come to final episode.

By the way what happened to the little kid that has so powerful , he transformed Castiel into a doll ...he's he coming back to join forces with the brothers would be fun if so....

Great work continue...

A perfect wrap-up for Season 7 would be looking for God and finding Him! Maybe even finding out that it's Bobby (or Castiel!). ;) That'd be fun.

The CW and the people who create Supernatural are sitting on a gold mine! It'd be crazy to let it go. Sure Zombies are hot- but the zombie fad was started by the youth as a way of rebelling against the constant Vampire bombardment we got from the media. Why Zombies for rebellion you may ask? Well, unlike Twilight, we do not want to hear/watch romance stories about a girl's choice between bestiality and necrophilia. We want the GORE. We want monsters, shadow people, and everything else that goes bump in the night. When it comes to romance, Dean/Castiel is acceptable. It gives viewer the "forbidden fruit" feeling without the incest. It also deals with homosexuality, which in this generation, is very accepted and is highly supported, not just by the crazy fan girls, but by the homosexual community (young and old) and by anyone is general. We want to see shows that don't deem it as something wrong.

With a Season 7 I'm sure that that audience would love to see what monsters lie in Heaven's domain. Cherubs, Nephilim, demi-gods, and even God himself!!!! That would be a great!

I've been a huge fan from the very beginning . . . but the show should have ended with season five . . . everyone in their heart of hearts knows that. With a seson six and most likely a season seven, a great show is going to be forced to go out limping . . . I feel like Sam and Dean deserve better than that.

I JUST WANT SUPERNATURAL TO KICK ASS AND TAKE NAMES. SUPERNATURAL IS SUCH AN AWESOME SHOW AND AS FAR AS HOTTIES GO....THEY CAN'T BE BEAT! I LOVE THE BROTHERLY ASPECT
OF THE SHOW, THAT'S WHAT MAKES IT SO UNIGUE. AND THEN THERE
IS CAS WHO HAS TO BE THE BOYS BEST FRIEND EXCEPT FOR BOBBY, BUT HE'S MORE OF A DAD TO THEM. IT WOULD BE NICE TO GET JOHN BAC ON THE SHOW HOWEVER.

You know- Part of what has made SPN so good in the past was an understanding of grandeur, the plots were big, BIG. Eve isn't scary- yet. The writers have an opportunity to make her scary and make her worth ganking. If they kill Eve will all the monsters in the world die? That would be a big story line and a worthy goal for Dean and Sam to tackle. With all the crap they've been through, a way to permanently stop some of the worlds evils make it a fitting ending. That’s what I hated about Buffy- nothing was permanently solved.

I would definitely like a 7th season of Supernatural. I just don't see how they can wrap up all the storylines (mother of all, Sam remembering hell, war in heaven) they introduced this season into the remaining episodes. Don't know if i want them to, it’s a lot. I agree this season had some bad episodes, but overall i still really enjoy watching the show and i think they can pull it off. So i say yes to season 7… but hopefully they don't drag it out for 10 seasons.

season 6 has been the worst season by far.i hate this season the only reason i want a season 7 so the supernatural writers can redeem themselves.something i would like for them to wrap up in season 7 is:mother of all i hope she dies by the end of season 7(it seems the big bads on sn last 2 seasons how odd)sam in hell(i cant wait for them to get rid of that hopefully sam handles it better than dean),war in heaven and hell(im so ready for this angel crap to be gone and they can get back to urban legends.cas can stay, im sure the writers can find a way for cas to be there and stop making it bout angels and crap, hell i mean leo on charmed an angel),and adam getting out(i mean did the writers forget bout him or what, i mean sam out the writers can figure a way to get adam out or they have no ideal what to do with his character)..lets hope season 7 is better than season 6 and they wrap all this things up.so far i say this b/c im losing faith in sn.............i mean season 1,3 and 4 r da best season.season 2,5 and 6 r the worst.so has u see i have 3 seasons for good and 3 for bad its neck and neck.hopefully season 7 will be good and i can be happy b/c my good will outweigh the bad..lets pray sn writers wrap this stuff i mention :)

I haven't watched this show yet, but my son is crazy about it. At least there are still some shows we can watch without getting bored

(Glee and Grey's Anatomy are making me insane, I can't even stand a minute of them)

Season 7 had better be amazing because season 6 has, for the most part, epically failed. And I HATE to say that because, before season 6, I was a die-hard SPN fan. When season 7 has been good, it's really been good, but when it's been bad... boy. It's been bad. In my opinion, "Swan Song" should have been the ending... and then Castiel should have gotten a spinoff because he's a tank. XD

I was ok with the show ending with the fifth season. Not to say i wasnt happy when i heard a sixth was coming, but as it was only a 5 season story i was wondering if the add-on would hold up. but after a few rocky 4-5 first episodes it got its groove back. and with kripke back in for 7even the awesomeness that is supernatural will keep on coming

This is my favorite show. I am a little disappointed that Castiel/Misha and Bobby were not in this season as much as possible. I am glad that Grandpa Campbell and Lisa are gone.

Would love to se a season 7. Not to mention Season 6, has been much better then season 5 so far. Im a supernatural fan to the bone, but season 5 was a mess on so many levels. How any "supposdly supernatural fan" wanted it to end with season 5 is beyond me.

How can I get a part for at least one appearance in season 7? I watch Supernatural faithfully and own seasons 1 - 5, it looks to be a very promising show and I would love to be a part of the winchester life line. How about a sister they didnt know about? Or a sister-in-law they never expected?

there's no way TheCW will cancel Supernatural unless JA or JP pulls a Charlie Sheen. It's the network's 3rd highest rated show..and it's on Friday. Once Smallville is over..it will be #2 on the network just behind TVD. Season Six hasn't been that bad....we're sure to see a season 7.

Fingers tightly crossed for season 7, I mean its still epic, lots of fans, crazy ones too like me, so why not? Bring it! The CW will totally suck if they didnt make a S7, SPN is one of the most imp -if not the most imp- show in the network now! So, SEASON 7 PLEASE!!! As long as there the show rocks, awesome writers and loads of fans around the world!!! ;)

if the sisters in Awakening are zombies i am ready to discard it, i have seen so many 'Zombie' things where the zombies are just people, albeit grey. it fit in supernatural but things focus around these non zombies always bug me

I love supernatural. It never disappoints. If Friends can have 10 seasons, Supernatural should have at least that much.

In Awakening, the sisters ARE the zombies, not fighting them.

I personally am a loyal viewer who would be lost without Supernatural. Yes, there's been some glitches with the current season....but you'll have that when new people are introduced into the mix. Give them time to find their way & their voices. Hopefully, when they start to click as a group that solidness will find its way to the pages of the Supernatural script. All in all this season hasn't been that bad.....these people are really trying & I give them credit for that. I do agree that teaming up 2 sisters fighting Zombies, & 2 brothers fighting every other evil thing imaginable is a good idea. I for one would happily watch these shows. A change of nights would be good also. Although I currently watch Supernatural & DVR Fringe. LOL, solves that high-ranking problem in my pitiful little life. Anyway, MHO is keep Supernatural on for as long as humanly possible. I will continue to watch for as long as they give me the oppertunity to. I for one truly love this show......the good, the bad, & yes even the ugly! Rock on Supernatural!

I like the theory, it would work out nicely for everyone. It is rediculius that Fringe and Supernatural should have to compete for a time slot. And sibling show thing would be a good hook for Thursday nights: "Thursday Nights on the CW is a Family Affair". Then cut to violent shots of Supernatural and Awakening and boom you've got a promo.

As far as I'm concerned, Supernatural S7 should be announced sooner rather than later by the WB - this is the problem with some studios they just don't realise when they have pure gold on their network!
