Supernatural Logo

Everything We Know About Supernatural Season 10. Season 10 of Supernatural is scheduled to premiere tonight at 9:00 PM/ET on the CW Network. The audience has been waiting with anticipation since the end of Season 9 to see the outcome of Crowley bestowing the Mark of Cain upon Dean, turning Dean into a demon. Season 10 promises to be exciting and “Demon Dean” appears to be a main focus, along with Sam trying to find/stop Dean, Castiel’s grace fading, the 200th musical episode, and the return/introduction of old/new characters. Many hints and teases have come from those involved in Supernatural and we’ve received some exciting details for the upcoming season through the many interviews.

According to Jeremy Carver (executive producer), the Winchester brothers will have equal storylines and their brotherly relationship will be focused on during Season 10. In an Entertainment Weekly report, Carver admitted he is aware of the fans’ concern of one brother having a story while the other does not. In response, he’s teased, “Both brothers will very much be having stories. It just so happens that at the beginning of this year, their stories very much revolve around the well-being of each other, which we like.”

Carver teased further regarding the Winchester brothers’ relationship in a TV Line interview: “Sam this year is really looking for his brother but doesn’t have any idea of what happened to him when the season starts” and hints about the beginning of Season 10 being kind of like a response to the beginning of Season 8, when Dean ended up in Purgatory for a year and Sam did not look for him.

Hints made by Carver state Sam and Dean will each be doing cool stuff separately for the first two episodes of Season 10 [which corresponds to teases made by Jared Padalecki, who hints Sam finds Dean in the third episode, and the preview from 2014 San Diego Comic-Con]. Carver has added that Sam will go down a dark path searching for Dean and will be really invested in finding his brother, doing “some questionable things” along the way which will make people wonder who the monster really is between Dean and Sam.

Cast members Jared Padalecki (Sam), Jensen Ackles (Dean), Misha Collins (Castiel), Mark Sheppard (Crowley) and executive producer Jeremy Carver were at the panel to talk about what will happen in Supernatural: Season 10 on Sunday morning, July 27th, 2014, at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con. Supernatural fans were also given a preview of Season 10, Episode 3 at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con; in which, the brothers finally face each other at the Men of Letters Bunker. The preview features a Demon Dean tied up and asking Sam “Which one of us is really a monster” after Dean revealed he knows how far Sam had gone to find him. In a Buddy TV interview with Jeremy Carver at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con, he reveals the main question in Season 10 will be how Sam Winchester will stop his demon brother, Dean. Carver revealed that the CW TV series, Supernatural, will be greatly effected by Dean’s transformation. In the Zap2It report, Carver teased: “The boys –Sam, in particular- will really dig into how to rescue his brother from being a demon, while Dean struggle with what it means to be a demon. We’re really excited, most of all, with the brothers questioning who’s the real monster. It’s exciting, moving, very emotional and fun.” According to the Mashable report, the preview was only exclusive to those who were at the event, with filming not allowed and the networks not releasing what was shown at the Comic-Con panel.

Jensen Ackles (Dean) teased in the Buddy TV report about one major change in his character for Season 10. According to Ackles (Dean), Dean’s soul has become so twisted, he longer cares about the Impala in the way the real Dean Winchester does. When asked about Dean’s relationship to the Crowley, the King of Hell, at the Comic-Con panel, Mark Sheppard (Crowley) teased that the fans would have to wait and see if Crowley can control the latest addition to the demon family. Jensen Ackles (Dean) further added that at some point in the show, Crowley will be thinking it was a bad idea to have a Demon Dean.

As for Crowley, Jared Padalecki (Sam) has hinted at a Sam Winchester vs. Crowley storyline occurring in the new season, so Mark Sheppard (Crowley) will undoubtedly play a large role in this season. In an exclusive E! Online TV Scoop Report, Padalecki has revealed it will be an intense scene when Sam finds out Dean has become a demon. Padalecki added, “Sam will not be pissed at Dean when he discovers he’s turned into a demon because Sam doesn’t think Dean transformed into their enemy on purpose. So, instead, Sam is pissed off at Crowley”. The spoiler report further noted “it is scary when a Winchester is pissed because he will surely be after his target and Crowley could be meeting his end in Supernatural Season 10.”

There will be a new intensity and dynamic to Season 10, with Sam trying to figure out a way to stop Dean. Carver believes the brothers have “reached a certain good place” before Dean’s death in the Season 9 finale episode “Do You Believe in Miracles?” and goes on further to add “There was a real maturation in terms of Sam accepting that Dean was walking into death and actually being okay with that. For everything they go through, the boys end up in a good place.”

 Jeremy Carver (executive producer) has teased about what will happen to Sam Winchester and Castiel in Season 10 when the two characters search for Dean. Sam and Castiel will each be looking for Dean in the beginning of Supernatural: Season 10; however, they will not be doing it together. According to Carver, Sam and Castiel are not teaming up in the search for Dean for two reasons: “One has to do with Castiel not wanting to be a distraction with his own issue; then, there’s another reason which we learn during the episode”. Misha Collins (Castiel) revealed that Castiel will be more concerned with fixing Dean than he is about his fading grace/angelic powers.

Regarding the angels, Jeremy Carver teased that the beginning of the new season will focus on the angels who are still on Earth. As Castiel succeeded in imprisoning Metatron (Curtis Armstrong) in Heaven, Carver hints the angels will try to work things out.

Castiel will be dealing with two huge issues at the beginning of Supernatural Season 10; Misha Collins (Castiel) shares in a Zap2It interview, “We find Castiel beginning to try to help with the Dean-as-a-demon problem but he will also be trying to grapple his own issues because of his fading grace.” Upon being asked about the Dean-Crowley relationship happening in Season 10, Misha Collins (Castiel) revealed that Castiel would not be a fan of Dean Winchester becoming a demon and his fraternizing with the King of Hell, Crowley. Collins (Castiel) further explains, “I think that Castiel’s relationship with Crowley is certainly strained. Castiel is definitely conflicted about the character of Crowley. Can I leave it at, ‘It’s complicated?’”.

Misha Collins (Castiel) further teased about the Supernatural: Season 10 storylines of Sam, Dean, Castiel and Crowley all being intertwined. However, there will be strong and independent storylines for each of the four Supernatural characters where the personal arcs do not really become interdependent with the arcs of the other characters. “It’s a very much more, I would say, personal season than seasons of the past,” Collins shared. Season 10 on the CW TV series Supernatural has the potential of becoming an emotionally impactful season with personal character struggles happening, which excites Collins.

New characters will be introduced and older characters will be welcomed back this season. According to the TV Line spoiler report, Supernatural has found a Scottish actress named Ruth Connell to portray the new recurring female character, Rowena, in Season 10. In a previous TV Line spoiler report, Rowena was described as “a mysterious tough woman with nothing stopping her in reclaiming her power base.” Jeremy Carver teased that fans will be able to see the familiar faces of two female law enforcement officers: the fan-favorite Sheriff Jody Mills (Kim Rhodes) and Sheriff Donna Hanscum (Brianna Buckmaster), who was introduced last season in “The Purge” when the Winchesters saved her from the Peruvian fat-sucking creature that worked at the health spa. Female characters usually don’t make it long in Supernatural, so let us hope Sheriff Jody Mills stays alive.

Furthermore, Jeremy Carver teased about the introduction of new characters in Season 10, such as, demons, angels, ghosts and werewolves, as well as the focus on Demon Dean and the arrival of a mysterious character that will bring all kinds of trouble to the Winchesters. [Is this going to be Rowena?] Carver confesses he can’t give away too many details out of fear he’d ruin the exciting stuff that will happen in the new season.

In an interview, Carver admitted to Entertainment Weekly that he’d love to have actor Timothy Omundson (Cain) back for Season 10; however, Omundson currently has a busy work schedule in another upcoming TV show. Carver teased about the Supernatural writers talking about the possibility of bringing in Cain’s brother, Abel, into the new season. About this, Carver said, “That’s a great idea and it’s been bandied about in the writers’ room.”

Familiar faces are expected to appear in the 200th episode, which is to occur in Season 10 and is teased by Carver to have a musical theme. This 200th episode will be based on Chuck Shurley’s (Rob Benedict) Supernatural books. Carver hints, “Just about every character –I’ll say they will be represented- that you’ve ever loved or hated on the show, and I say this obliquely on purpose. So they will be there in spirit.” Carver also confirms one character introduced a couple seasons back will appear, but wouldn’t reveal who because he didn’t want to “spoil it just yet.” After actor Osric Chau (Kevin) made a surprise appearance at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Can panel, this could mean the musical will include Kevin Tran, or possibly even Chuck Shurley (Rob Benedict). In the E! Online report regarding the 200th episode, Carver teased, “I think it’ll be one of the more amusing and engaging episodes we’ve done in a while. I would just describe it as something of a love letter to our fans, and there will be songs.” Carver added that “the episode will have more than one song with original and cover songs, as well as potential dancing.” The song “Carry on my Wayward Son” is reputed to be involved in the musical episode in one form or another. Carver wouldn’t comment any further when asked if the fans will hear Dean (Jenson Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki) in the 200th episode, but assured that the “musical” episode will be a fun one for the fans as it celebrates the milestone with their love and support for the CW TV series, Supernatural.

Ackles (Dean) revealed in an interview that they still get excited to work on Supernatural, saying, “I think we’re all on the same page. We still get excited about it. And I think that hasn’t tarnished in ten years.” He added that as long as there is fulfillment, enjoyment and the viewers are still entertained, they will still continue to tell stories of the Winchester brothers. Padalecki (Sam) agreed to this, declaring that the show quality will not diminish in Jeremy Carver’s hands and states, “I think we know the show enough and our characters enough, so if there’s an end coming, I think we’ll all see it.”

As anybody can see, we’ve got one hell of a season approaching.
