Supernatural took the stage at Comic-Con on Sunday as usual and offered fans a sneak peek at season 9. In attendance were showrunners Jeremy Carver and Bob Singer with Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins and Mark Sheppard.
Keep reading for highlights:
-A preview of season 9 was shown, most notably with Crowley still as the Winchesters’ prisoner, uncooperative and being thrown into solitary. There’s also a joke where Dean compares Kevin to Katniss after footing a crossbow.
-A potential spin-off is in the works. The show will introduce a new character in episode 20 this season that will a potential pilot for a new series (much like The Originals with The Vampire Diaries). There are no details other than it will center on a new character and be more focused in the city.
-Felicia Day (aka lesbian hacker Charlie) showed up during the panel and it was announced that there are “big plans” for her return this season.
-Obviously after the angels fell in season 8, this season will find the boys “knee-deep” in angels, all of whom have their own agendas and plans.
-Misha Collins promised that the ew, non-angel Cas will struggle to figure out how to be human. Not only will he learn to eat, but he’ll also learn about the digestive system (yup, there’s gonna be a Cas bathroom scene).
-Misha Collins will direct the 17th episode of the season!
