Supernatural season four news

Two interesting bits of news for the Supernatural viewers here in the forum. We are few, but we're dedicated.

First-

Katie Cassidy let go from Supernatural

So, it's not just Bela that will be leaving after all. However, this time it's due to budget cuts. Phooey. I thought Ruby was a great addition as a character.

Second-

In a more positive piece of news, we're still not guaranteed a fifth season, but Warner Bros. television seems pretty happy with Eric Kripke even if the CW suits ignore him in favor of Gossip Girl and more Gossip Girl. He just inked a two year deal with them. Given the fact that Warner produces Supernatural, that doesn't hurt SPN's chances of a fifth season renewal. A CW collapse may, but this won't.

Kripke signs deal with Warner Bros. TV

Re: Supernatural season four news

I just got the first season of this show on DVD and am enjoying it (I considered starting a thread about my first time experiences a la the B5 and XFiles ones but I don't know if there are enough people into it). I'm happy to see that it looks good for a fifth season.

Re: Supernatural season four news

The prequel idea sounds interesting... I hope something comes of it, whether it's a one off episode, or a full blown series I don't really care, but it'd be cool to see.

Re: Supernatural season four news

Welcome to the fold, sidious. During the season, I always start a thread here in sci-fi/fantasy for the new episode each week. Feel free to start a thread any time. I think you'll be pleased with how the show evolves. Dean and Sam aren't like Clark from Smallville. They actually change and grow, and they're affected by their experiences.

Oooh, an "Old West" supernaturally based show could be loads of fun and something that hasn't been overdone either.

Dare we hope for Deadwood with vampires? No? They don't have to swear quite so much (though I could think of some funny variations on Deadwood's favorite swear-word).

Hey, with Kripke getting the production deal with Warners, we might get it, Temis. A western with vampires sounds choice to me.

The closest things I can think of with similar premises are From Dusk Til Dawn 3, and while not vampires, Tremors 4 was a western.

I was trying to think of TV shows in this vein (never too soon to start the bad puns).

I can't think of any. I mean the only genre western I can think of is Firefly.

Thanks, you actually suggested the show to me a few months ago. I can't bloody stand Smallville and I was very hesitant to get into this series but I'm enjoying it so far. Most of the shows on the CW are terrible. A few of the standalones are "meh" but others are good. I understand that the show gets even better in season two.

Does anyone have a list of the mytharc eps, by the way? I'm just curious so I know when they're coming up.

Never heard of Gunsmoke, Bonanza, The Wild, Wild West? Or Little House on the Prairie (good candidate for re-imagining as horror ).

Firefly was sci fi/metaphorical-Western, but this would be horror/real-world Western. I actually think it's a better idea than Firefly, which always struck me as strained in attempting to carry off the metaphor but historically based supernatural horror sounds fun. The closest thing I can think of from TV is Dark Shadows.

Was that a TV show? Yeah, that rings a bell. That's going back a ways...

But still not really supernatural horror.

Oh, no, it was a movie. My bad.

Gunsmoke, Bonanza and Little House on the Prairie have SF/F elements? I never watched any of them, so eh...
