Supernatural will have 10 Season run?
 
‘Supernatural’ Showrunner Reveals Season 10 Goal

‘Supernatural’ Stars Agree To Seasons 9 & 10

I guess ten seasons for a popular CW show is going to be like the seven seasons thing for Trek? I hope they will use Cthulhu, which I had been expecting for season seven, as their next Big Bad.

Ten seasons sounds good to me. I'm still enjoying it. I just hope it ends on a satisfactory note.

I completely agree about Cthulhu. The Leviathans seemed very Lovecraftian to start with, before they turned into a joke.

If Carver actually has a plan culminating in ten seasons, then I'm cool with it. Season Seven was kind of weak, but still watchable. I'm hopeful that a new showrunner will inject some new life into the show.

I almost gave up on Season Seven, but it did end strong. Hopefully they can bring it around for the next 3 (?!) years.

They had Supernatural on Fridays but will be putting it on Wednesdays starting next season. It really does look like the CW wants Supernatural to last a few more years. :)

The new season starts on October 3 on a Wednesday.

Ten Seasons is crazy! Season 6 was pretty weak, and I haven't started 7 yet. I'm just trying to imagine where they can take the show for 3 more years.

Season 7 certainly wasn't one of their best, but it wasn't bad enough that I wouldn't stick around for 3 more seasons.

I think getting them out of the Friday death slot and teaming it up with Arrow on Wednesday night will give it a slight boost in the ratings. By slight I mean .1 or .2. Jumping into an eight year old show for new viewers is next to impossible. I will be very interested to see where they take the show now.

Yes, season 7 was not their best, but now they have a very interesting starting point for this season, although I will definitely miss Bobby. I'm hoping they can do well in this new time slot.

I watched the first 3. There's only so many times the guys can die before it ceases to be even mildly interesting.

^That's too bad, because I thought seasons 4 and 5 were the best of the series, so far.

What kind of tension can they maintain when the two heroes can't die and stay dead?

In season 10, I say they go for broke and have Sam and Dean kick the stuffing out of God (who they find out is a giant radioactive dinosaur that lives Tokyo bay)

Well they do pile on the emotional damage that you would rarely see on a tv show. And they certainly work the deaths with recurring characters that they build up quite nicely and then kill off.

As for the resurrection aspect the boys have each had, each has had significant cost to it, cost that has generally plagued the character for the length of two seasons to four seasons and counting, so their is absolutely consequences to it. And since the show is about myths, resurrection is often tied up into myth stories, quite frequently, so its certainly not outside the scope of the shows genre.

Not to mention the fact that in most shows its extremely rare for the primary cast to die without it being the final episode of that show. So how can the majority of all programming have tension, when you know the lead character is almost 100% assured to be alive?

This shows goes through more characters then most shows do, and the reason for that is to build up characters some short lived, some that have been around for 6 seasons so that death can still always have teeth.
