A Supernatural Place To End

Supernatural showrunner Eric Kripke has told Entertainment Weekly that the the fifth season of Supernatural – which will air from Autumn 2009 to Spring 2010 in the States – will be the show’s last, according to Airlock Alpha . And he says ratings won’t change his mind.

"Despite what the network and studio may or may not want, I don't have more than five seasons of a story," Kripke said. "I would be willing to make sure there are enough villains and heroes around to continue a new story, but there's no way I'm doing Season six."

The question now is, does that mean a Supernatural movie? After all this is what executive producer McG told SFX last November : "“Obviously, Eric Kripke is the architect of the show. And Kripke is just such a smart, passionate guy that I’ve laid it out to him that should he ever decide to pull the trigger, and make the feature, I'll be there every step of the way to help to help navigate the tricky journey that it is to get something greenlit and actually made with integrity. So that’s my commitment to him, and it's up to him."
