"Supernatural" once again had a big presence at San Diego Comic-Con this year, and we were in the press room to get the scoop on what's coming up next. On Wednesday, July 30, we posted our video roundtable interview with executive producer Jeremy Carver.
Check out the video interview above or here. Keep reading for some highlights from what Carver had to say about season 10.
They brought in the Men of Letters as "one of the final pieces of the Winchester family tree." It opened up many possibilities, and they will continue to explore that.
Will there be new monsters? There will be "a lot of spins on some monsters we've seen before," Carver said. "To me, it's not so much a question of introducing new monsters as it is finding a fresh new way to get into the world of even monsters that we've seen." That said, there will be a few new monsters.
According to the executive producer, "season 9 was very much about each of our characters…presented with, 'Who do I want to be?'" As for season 10, "the overall mythology doesn't totally hit you in the face in episode 1 in terms of this is going to be a quest for this or this. It's really sort of very careful building blocks sort of centering around the idea of – we're basically forcing our main characters to eventually come to a 'you are who you are' or 'I am who I am.' …I think people are going to be forced to make much more stark choices this year, based on who I am, and it's not going to be only themselves pushing them to make those decisions. It's going to be very personal this year."
Who's going to be back? Unfortunately, Cain won't be in the first run of episodes (Timothy Omundson has his own new show, "Galavant"), but they would love to bring him back. We will see Sheriff Mills (Kim Rhodes) again, teamed up with Sheriff Donna Hanscum (Brianna Buckmaster), from last season's "The Purge," for a "really fun plus emotional episode." As for Felicia Day's Charlie in Oz, "we're actively working for a way to bring [her] back," Carver shared.
And what about closure for Kevin? "Kevin's in a really weird spot right now. I just love that character and I was sad as anyone to kill him off, so any chance we can find to bring him back, we will," the EP promised.
"Supernatural" season 10 premieres Oct. 7 at 9 p.m. on the CW.
