Jensen and Jared Definitely In for a Likely ‘Supernatural’ Season 6

Supernatural fans have reason to be excited today.  Even though the premiere of season 5 is far away, Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles recently appeared at a European convention where they gave fans a lot of hope for Supernatural season 6.

Jensen and Jared Definitely In for a Likely 'Supernatural' Season 6

Some people worried that a sixth season would result in a completely different show, but Jensen confirmed to the Coventry Telegraph that he and Jared both have six-year contracts for the show, meaning if CW president Dawn Ostroff picks up Supernatural for season 6, Sam and Dean will both be in it.

That’s the good news, but here’s the not-so-good news.  While Jensen and Jared have six-year contracts, creator Eric Kripke only has a five-year contract, so if the network does renew Supernatural beyond Kripke’s original five-year plan, there are two options.  The first is for the network to shell out some big bucks to sign him to a new contract.  The second is to continue the show without Kripke.

If you think that’s jumping the gun, think again.  In the interview, Jared also mentioned that his “best guess” is that the show will be renewed once again.  The increased ratings for season 4 plus the promise of being paired with new blood in the form of The Vampire Diaries makes Supernatural a more solid prospect than the network’s other aging shows like One Tree Hill and Smallville.

What do you think?  Is season 6 worth it if we get Jensen and Jared but no Kripke?  Personally, I might be OK with it so long as they promoted one of the other great writers like Sera Gamble or Jeremy Carver.
