Supernatural Considering Musical Episode

Supernatural has never shied away from doing “meta” episodes during its six year run.  And should the series get picked up for a seventh season (the CW still hasn’t given the green light yet), fans can look for another one to hit our screens.  This time, it’d be a musical episode.

Producer Bob Singer confirms that a musical episode is something the team has discussed doing since the first season.

“From year one, there have been two things we’ve talked about,” he said. “How do you do a musical, and how do you do a cartoon? We haven’t found a way to do either one of those yet, but I’m sure it’ll come up in conversation for next season – an animated show or a musical. Musicals are really risky ground, but we do talk about it.”

Singer also revealed that the current season will end on a “very big cliffhanger”, but explained that he is not sure what will happen if the show is renewed for another run.

“Most of it’s up in the air,” he said. “The only thing that we have talked about is that since this year was kind of an old-fashioned noir mystery, next year may have the boys being Butch and Sundance, or the Wild Bunch. Basically it’d be telling the story of the last of the cowboys, gone modern. That’s just a jumping off point. Whether we actually do that or how that realizes itself… we haven’t gotten that far yet. But there’s an idea of, ‘The world is closing in around you’.”

    That actually sounds like a really good atmosphere for next season – the show has always done best when it has emphasized its cowboy/route66 feel, and it would be interesting to have them play up the split between that and the real world.

    Seems like doing a musical episode has become some sort of trend since Buffy did it. Hope they can pull it off if they decide to go ahead with it.
