Previewing the Apocalypse
by Ileane Rudolph
Supernatural exec producer Eric Kripke gave us such good scoop on Season 5 back in July, we thought we’d go back and try for some more. With new episodes set to return Thursday, September 10, the cult show’s creator tells us about writing for God, Castiel’s future, President Sarah Palin and what 2014 will look like for the Winchester Brothers. Think zombies. And then there’s what we all want to know: Could there be a Season 6?
You have Lucifer [Mark Pellegrino] as a character. How about God? Where’s the High Holy been?
I know it sounds nuts, but God will be a character on Supernatural this season. He’s vanished from Heaven, which is why the Angels have taken over the joint, but we’re planning on God’s return, probably around the end of the season. This story thread has generated much hilarity in the Supernatural writer’s room. We ask ourselves questions like, “Well, what’s God’s motivation in this scene?” And then we start laughing, cause, you know, Gossip Girl just ain’t having these problems.
How will God enter into the battle?
Who will play Him—or Her? (Well, why not?)
What can you tell us about Castiel [Misha Collins] and his future on the show? Haven’t the Angels turned against him? Will he basically be in the same condition as the Hunters?
Cass returns to the show as a hunted fugitive. All of Heaven is out to kill him. Some of his powers are beginning to fade. In short, he’s totally boned. But on top of that, he has an interesting story arc. Now that he’s cut off from heaven, he’s learning more and more, how to be human. Which leads to stories that are sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, and hopefully both. But he still looks the same—trenchcoat, tie, Misha’s face. No worries there.
Will any of the hunters be back this season to help Sam [Jared Padalecki] and Dean [Jensen Ackles] and Bobby [Jim Beaver]? If so, which ones?
We plan on bringing back practically every hunter who’s alive and kicking. It’s the Apocalypse, and it’s all hands on deck. Ellen [Samantha Ferris]. Jo [Alona Tal]. Rufus [Steven Williams]. Also, Chuck [Rob Benedict], though he’s technically not a hunter. I love bringing back characters that the boys have a history with—it leads to more interesting scenes—at least, I hope they’re more interesting. Who knows? You tell me.
How will the Apocalypse develop through the season? Will it literally be hell on earth?
Well, that's the tension of the season. Things start bad—North Korea's arming up, swine flu rips across the country, hurricanes slam into American cities—oh wait, all that is going on now. But seriously, we start bad and get worse. And the big question is, can Sam and Dean short-circuit the Apocalypse, before the planet is roasted alive?
What will we see when the show leaps five years into the future? Were you joking at Comic-Con when you said Sarah Palin would be President? If you weren't, is that an indication of the aforesaid hell on earth?
No, we weren't joking. Like I said, it is the Apocalypse, after all. Beyond that, the world in 2014 is a entertainingly nasty place to be. The Croatoan virus, introduced in Season 2, has spread worldwide, resulting in a 28 Days Later situation. Our band of hunters have resorted to living in the woods, protecting as many terrified survivors as they can. When we meet our heroes in the future, we'll see that time has changed them. Especially Castiel. But on the plus side, Chuck is living with the guys at the refugee camp, and he's still as neurotic as ever.
Any hints on the infamous Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse?
They don't ride horses. They drive muscle cars. The first horseman will be played by Titus Welliver, a brilliant actor and one of the regulars on Deadwood.
Will we see the boys’ dad, John Winchester, again? If so, could it be with an actor other than the super busy Jeffrey Dean Morgan?

From Samantha Ferris Official Blog:
Hi gang! Happy summer. I've been a busy girl.
First off, the shoot was great. Just like ole times. Boys were wonderful. Had a lot of fun and got to kick a little ass....always a good time. The crew haven't changed much which was nice to see. That is the sign of a good show.....the fact that the crew stick around for all 5 seasons. Still a little sad without Kim Manners but what are you gonna do? The weather here was hot as hell (abnormally hot for Vancouver) and i gave myself a headache on a fairly regular basis as there was a lot of jostling around. Lots of physical work in this one for both myself and..............another character you might recognize from the past.
The boys haven't changed at all. It amazes me that after 4 seasons on a hit show it all hasn't gone to their heads. I chalk it up to good ole Texan upbringings. They are respectful, kind and professional. But they still have a lot of fun.....and i do have to say that Jared has the most ripped butt muscles i have ever encountered. I poked them in sheer awe. He must be doing more butt crunches than humanly possible. No joke. Very impressive.
The summer has been great. The weather here has been phenomenal. Hot hot hot....for weeks on end. For a town that gets a lot of rain in the winter, it was welcome....although the plants on my patio all died. I have barely been home...went to LA for a week to visit friends, went traipsing around the Gulf Islands (a group of islands surrouding our coast.....absolutely stunning), going to the interior of BC for a visit, and maybe going to Toronto at the end of the summer. I booked a movie that shoots in Victoria September and October so we'll see. It's called 7 Deadly Sins. I just read the script and for it and it is definately a younger audience (I am definately one of the oldest cast memebers, if not THE oldest cast member), but it looks really cool. Sort of Gossip Girl meets Twin Peaks. Directed well and good casting could make this a really cool movie. We'll see. I play the mother of the lead. Ugh. The mother. Am i that old already? Jeesus.
Conventions! Already booked a few for next summer but i'm not sure if we are totally confirmed yet so no details.....but i will say that Spain and Germany are in the plans. I'll let you know when they are set in stone.
Okay, i have an audition in the am and i have to get on my lines.
Hope yer well and that the summer is treating you smashingly.

This is going to be hilarious.
Sources tell us exclusively that celebutante Paris Hilton is going to guest star in episode five of Supernatural this season.
Should you freak out? Is she going to be a love interest for the boys? Here's what we're hearing...
Details about Hilton's role are being kept under wraps, but we are advised that freaking out is not necessary. A source close to the show tells us: "The fans should trust [show runner] Eric Kripke." (We've heard the storyline, and when you see it you will die. It's awesome.)
Who do you think Paris will play on Supernatural? How would you feel if she hooked up with one of the Winchester boys? Post your reaction in the comments.
Lainey Gossip reports that she is playing some kind of shapeshifting demon who shapeshifts into Paris Hilton and starts killing people. And this is supposed to be funny and clever.
