Jared Padalecki Interview (1/16/12)

The boys of “Supernatural” have more than their fare share of work to do, and with only two series regulars left on the show, it’s always a treat when Jensen Ackles or Jared Padalecki can carve out some time to hang with the press.
On a rare day off from shooting last week, Padalecki flew from Vancouver, where the show films, to Los Angeles, to be part of The CW’s “Bad-Ass Boys” panel at the Television Critics Association press tour. The next morning, he’d be back on set. “I’ll go straight to set from the airport, to shoot, and then come straight back the next day for Gen’s baby shower,” he said. “It’s not ideal, but I can’t complain.”
With his first child on the way with wife (and former co-star) Genevieve Padalecki, you’d think that the grueling schedule that “Supernatural” requires might be wearing on him. Padalecki tells us that the addition to their family — a boy, due in March — hasn’t made sticking with the show, now in its seventh season, more difficult.

Supernatural‘s beloved Bobby Singer died last Friday, thanks to a bullet in the brain from a shape-shifting Leviathan. Veteran actor Jim Beaver, who played the crotchety mentor to demon hunting brothers Sam and Dean Winchester on The CW series, talked to TV Guide Magazine about Bobby’s shocking demise, his last days on the set and his upcoming role on Justified.
TV Guide Magazine: I’m in Bobby Singer mourning. When did you find out Bobby would be killed off? Jim Beaver: Right after shooting episode 6, I was home in L.A. and got the call that no actor wants to get where the assistant says, “I have both your executive producers on the line.” They said, “We’ve got bad news, but it’s not that bad.” They told me what they had planned but they also told me the send off episode was going to be pretty amazing for me. In fact, one of the execs said, “If you weren’t on The CW, you’d win an Emmy.” It was a little bit of déjà vu because I had something extremely similar happen on Deadwood, where an executive producer pulled me aside and said, “We’re going to shoot you in the head.” I didn’t even get shot on a different side of the head. [Laughs] Pretty much the same entrance wound. Any time I go to work from now on, I’ll wear a bandage there so we can skip right to the bullet wound.

Okay, “Supernatural” fans, we know you’ve been through a lot this season. It hasn’t been easy watching the Winchesters lose Castiel, Bobby, and their car over the course of just a few months. We feel your pain (though we will say, we’re loving the unexpected turns this season has taken!).

While we can’t make everything better, we can give you some good news. At Wednesday’s Television Critics Association party we spoke with executive producer Robert Singer and, in addition to some serious scoop on Misha Collins‘ return as Castiel, we got official confirmation that Jim Beaver will be back.

“Jim will be back, in one form or another, this season,” Singer says. “That’s probably as much as I’m going to say. The killing of Bobby was part of an overall idea this year of isolating the boys. It started with losing Castiel, then we went into a real, constant bonding with Bobby. We really built their relationship with Bobby this season, and then we ripped that away from them. We put them in a place they’ve really never been before, where they have no life supports, no lifelines, and no backups. They’re facing this huge monolithic evil, but they’re reduced to two lonely cowboys.”

Sera Gamble TVLine Interview (1/10/12)

Oh, those poor Supernatural boys.
This season, the Winchesters have lost their beloved Impala, their friend Castiel and now their only remaining “family” member (RIP Bobby). But where did Bobby go? How will Cas come back? And is Sam about to lose his last marble? TVLine went to executive producer Sera Gamble to get answers — and dish about this week’s time-travel adventure (airing Friday at 9/8c)!

TVLINE | You ended the fall finale with the Reaper posing a pretty big question to Bobby. But then with last week’s episode, you didn’t address that question. Why did you decide to go in that direction? In Episode 11 and in episodes to come, we wove in oblique references to that. What we want to do is keep the audience in the same grief space as Sam and Dean, who miss Bobby and start to question whether what they’re seeing is evidence that he might be a spirit or whether they’re just going through that normal grieving process where you think you see your loved one everywhere. Anyone who has gone through that knows that happens sometimes. And even when you are the world’s foremost supernatural investigators, that could happen to you.

Sera Gamble Interview (1/10/12)

“Supernatural” E.P. Sera Gamble has certainly made some controversial decisions since taking over as showrunner, not the least of which was the death of Bobby (Jim Beaver), the only character outside of Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) who has survived since Season 1.
If it makes you feel better, Gamble tells us that the move to kill Bobby off wasn’t an easy one for her, either. “Clearly, we were very upset in the writers’ room when we were breaking that episode,” she tells us. “One of the big themes this season and challenges for Sam & Dean has  been about taking away the tools that they’ve come to rely on and the  support system that they’ve come to rely on. We didn’t have that big of a pool to draw on to begin with. This show is pretty famous for killing  people off. It’s a precedent that was set pretty early on.”

Misha Collins Interview

Reps for the show informed us that they couldn’t give  specific details about Collins’ return or which other episodes the actor would  be appearing in, so AOL TV went straight to the source. Though Collins admitted  that he couldn’t reveal much, he would offer one tantalizing hint about what  fans can expect when he makes his much-anticipated return …
“I can  confirm that the character of Castiel is returning to ‘Supernatural,'” he told  us. “I’m not supposed to talk about any details, but I will tell you this: The  character is coming back somewhat changed. I’m not going to tell you everything,  but I will tell you that the “new” Castiel no longer wears  undergarments.”
