I was actually paying attention to my timeline on Twitter for once yesterday, when Charisma Carpenter (@AllCharisma) was teasing her followers with some good news. There was bad news, as well, but the good news far out weighed the fact that the ‘Expendables 2’ film was a bust. According to TVLine, the CW’s ‘Supernatural’ aims to reunite Buffy alumni in one of its Season 7 episodes!
Charisma Carpenter and James Marsters will be playing husband and wife when the season resumes on Friday, Sept. 23, at 9/8c on The CW. The CW will also play home to the former slayer herself when Sarah Michelle Gellar returns to series television on Tuesday, Sept. 13 with ‘Ringer.’
According to showrunner Sera Gamble, “Shut Up Dr. Phil” is the fifth episode, in which James Marsters character is a successful man married to a witch, (Charisma Carpenter) and things are all wine and roses until he pisses her off. Then the entire town suffers for it. TVLine reports speaking to Charisma on Wednesday about her ‘Burn Notice’ appearance when she divulged what she could of the ‘Supernatural’ gig:
“My people called me yesterday to see if I wanted to do it and I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’d love to go to Vancouver in the summer!’” she said. “It’s probably one of my all-time favorite cities.”
The episode is set to film the week of August 22 after she finishes a stint on a just announced Syfy movie called ‘Haunted High’ where she plays a Librarian who lords over the school library.
Supernatural star Jensen Ackles, who plays Dean, alongside Jared Padalecki in the role of his brother Sam, reveals that most of the new season will focus on the Winchester’s in their younger years, especially Sam. According to Ackles, Sam will be dealing with more personal issues than Dean will. Ackles was quoted as saying:
“Essentially the big topic [this season] is there’s a new evil in the world and the boys are going to have to combat it by pooling their [meagre] resources. It’s going to be a difficult situation for both [Dean and his brother Sam].”
Jim Beaver, who plays Bobby Singer in the series, informs us that there will also be some format changes in the new season. Kim Rhodes, who plays Sheriff Jody Mills will return. CW’s president, Mark Pedowitz is quoted as saying:
“It’s not intended to be the last season. We’ll see where the ratings go. We hope the show keeps going.”
