Twelve seasons into Supernatural, and one thing is very clear: Sam and Dean go big, or they go home. And since they rarely go home, they've been going bigger and bigger each season, it seems. From hunting one yellow-eyed demon in Seasons 1 and 2 to having to deal with the international douchebag club the British Men of Letters, Satan, God, Heaven, Hell, and another freaking dimension in Season 12.
Don't get me wrong; I'll watch the hell out of anything #Supernatural throws at Sam and Dean Winchester, but a slightly scaled-down story just might be what Dr. Sexy M.D. ordered. And executive producer Robert Singer says we'll get just that next season.
Singer appeared at this year's San Diego Comic Con, and spoke with Cinema Blend about the upcoming season's change of scale.
"Deliberately we're not doing like—I mean last year was pretty big with the British Men of Letters and the whole sort of organizational thing and all that, and this year we made a conscious effort that we wanted to go a little smaller and more personal so with mom in the apocalypse world with Lucifer and the boys having to deal with Satan's son we thought there would be a lot of emotional possibilities and that's kind of what we wanted to play with this year."
That news might actually come to a shock to those of you who tuned in for the Season 12 finale. In a nutshell, #Castiel looked really dead but definitely isn't; Crowley is most definitely dead; Mary Winchester is stuck in another dimension with Lucifer, Bobby 2.0, and God know who or what else; and Sam and Dean are stuck back in their dimension with Lucifer's Nephilim son.
That all screams anything but “small scale,” but it'll be great to see what Singer has in store for us and the Winchester boys next season.
Mark your calendars—Supernatural is returning for its unheard-of thirteenth season on Thursday, October 12, at 8 pm.
