"Supernatural" season 9 ended with a bang, with Dean's eyes opening demon black with Crowley at his side, and with Mark Sheppard a series regular, it doesn't seem a stretch to expect to see a bit more from Crowley. We caught up with the actor in the press room at San Diego Comic-Con to try to find out what's next, and on Sunday, Aug. 3, we uploaded that video roundtable interview.
Sheppard was pretty tight-lipped about what's coming up – but doesn't that just make you that much eager to see what's in store for Crowley in season 10? – but you can check out the video interview above or here. Plus, keep reading for a few highlights of what he did say about his character and Dean.
Last season, following the season 8 finale, was a big one for Crowley, who ended up becoming hooked on human blood, giving him his own addiction to go along the one Dean developed the longer he had the Mark of Cain. "The King of Hell is a drug addict, or rendered to be a drug addict," Sheppard said at Comic-Con. "A very interesting concept, the idea of addiction and subsequent idea of Dean's addiction in the last season, which is, I think, a very interesting place to go. What is humanity, what are we…"
As the season ended, Crowley was at Dean's side when he woke up, even as Sam was trying to summon the King of Hell to save his brother. Though he claimed that it was just a rumor that this would happen, he must want something from demon Dean, so what does Crowley want now? "Who knows? You'll find out, though," he promised. "You always find out." We can expect to see Crowley take advantage of Dean's circumstances "in a very Crowley-esque way" and to see Crowley and Dean's relationship be "close" in season 10.
Don't forget to check out the video interview with Mark Sheppard. "Supernatural" season 10 premieres Tuesday, Oct. 7, at 9 p.m. on the CW.
