Following rumors of Supernatural Season 12 being the series? last, creator Eric Kripke reveals that they will still continue the series as long as brothers Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) are alive.
According to Movie News Guide, Kripke said that Padalecki and Ackles are the keys to more seasons after the upcoming Season 12 which premieres October 13.
?As long as Jared and Jensen, who are the heart of the show, are up for it, then anything?s possible,? Kripke said in an interview with Collider.
He also said that they still have more stories to tell after 11 seasons, ?There?s as many episodes as there are ghost stories, and there?s thousands of ghost stories.?
He concluded that ?As long as everyone?s having fun and Jared and Jensen are having fun, they?ll keep doing it.?
Kripke also mentioned that he never expected the series to last this long as he originally intended it to run for only three or four seasons when he first created it back in 2005. But look where they are now, on to the 12th season and counting. After serving as showrunner for the first five seasons, Sera Gamble and Jeremy Carver took Krispe?s place at the helm. ?
Meanwhile, according to TV Line the premiere episode of Season 12 is written by Andrew Dabb and is titled, ?Keep Calm and Carry On.?
Season 11 ended with Sam staring down at the barrel of a gun that belongs to Lady Toni. She fired off her gun when he refused to submit to her demands though we?re not sure if Sam was directly hit, injured, or worse.
Padalecki confirmed to TVLine that, ?She shot him.? And added, ?I don?t know where, but I know she shot him? ?What else is new ? Sam gets injured,? he continued with a laugh. ?At least I?m not getting tortured ? yet.?
One interesting storyline to look forward to in the upcoming season is the return of Mary Winchester, Sam and Dean?s mother, to the series. ?I?m anxious to see how that [surprise return] pans out,? Ackles said.
