New “Supernatural” Threat is “Massive”

Yesterday, we brought you the new trailer for the upcoming seventh season of Supernatural.

If that had you hungry for me, our next story may just rev up that hunger a bit.

Producer Ben Edlund says the new threat for season seven is “massive.”

“[The Winchesters are] going to find themselves, in a sense, running from lots of guns,” he teased. “[With] their techniques [and] their methods, they know what they’re doing. They know their job. They have their support networks. [But] those things in their lives are going to challenged.”

However, Edlund also promised that aspects of the new season will provide elements of humor.

“There’s a natural absurdity to being on the air for seven seasons and the number of times [the characters have] died,” he said. “There’s a quality that’s going to lend itself to a little more ambient comedy this year.”

Actor Misha Collins also weighed in, saying that his character Castiel’s future on the show is uncertain.

“How much I’ll be on Supernatural [next season] is a secret. And I actually don’t know. That makes it easier to not tell you,” he says.

Collins also revealed that his character Castiel will be “drunk with power” following his transformation into a god in the show’s sixth season finale.

“He’s trying to do what he thinks a god should be doing on Earth and in Heaven, which is fairly righteous and wrathful,” he explained. “I think he’s making, in many respects, the world a better place. But there’s a fair amount of smiting going on too. You take the good with the bad.”

Supernatural will return on September 23.
