SPNews

The big news hit last week with official confirmation of season 6 and Eric Kripke (along with his co-runner Robert Singer) stepping down as the showrunner. However, we trust the show is in great hands with exec producer/writer Sera Gamble and, thankfully, both Kripke and Singer have stated they’ll still be involved.

So what does this mean for a post-apocalypse SPN? Well, according to an interview Buddy TV did with the writers, season 6 “won’t have the scope” of this season. Instead Sera says, “You just turn left and go a whole other direction. The show has never really been about God and the angels and demons, it's a show about Sam and Dean." She further added, "There has always been a deep well to jump into in the boys' relationship...We have the opportunity to go back from the epic to a more intimate story." The idea is to go back to more stand-alones and Ben Edlund for one, is happy he can be “be funny again.”

The next natural question is this…if they’re going back to the basics, where does that leave Castiel? According to E’s Kristin, Misha only has a contract through season 5, but sources close to the show are “hopeful” he’ll be asked to stay on.

And finally, according to Vegas News Jared was spotted at LAVO celebrating his bachelor party. He’s supposed to marry costar Genevieve Cortese next week in Idaho. (Darnnit couldn't find any pics of the party!)

I've loved the apocalypse storyline, but I will be thrilled to refocus on just Sam and Dean again, too, and to explore their relationship even more. I think a post-apocalypse timeframe gives them a whole new freedom to explore ideas that didn't fit when the apocalypse was happening. I can't wait! :)

I'm looking forward to it too and wonder how the boys will define and live "normal" after the apocalypse.

It also occurs to me that Life After Apocalypse offers the possibility of a better ending for the boys. :) The apocalypse series finale would probably have been the Butch-and-Sundance blaze of glory Jared and Jensen want and I really, really don't!

I second Ben's wish and would love to see some funnier episodes next year!
