Eric Kripke, the creator of Supernatural, talked with Collider at this year’s Saturn Awards. You can see the video on Collider here.
When asked about the show’s staying power, Eric credits the fans and Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles. As long as the boys are willing to keep going, so will the show. 12 seasons confirmed, and with no signs of slowing down. Eric says in the early years he was fighting and praying to get picked up for one more season, and if he was lucky it would go four. Here we are, 12 seasons in though.
There are fanbases around the world. Viewing parties everywhere. The fans definitely keep the show going, and for good reason. The stars of the show are some of the most down to Earth and approachable types you will ever meet.
How about all of you? Fans of the show? Has it gone on too long? Is it really jumping the shark if you never come down?
