Creator of Supernatural signs new deal which may bring paranormal prequel


THE CREATOR and executive producer of cult series Supernatural has entered a two-year deal with Warner Bros TV that could see a spooky spin-off to the hit programme.


Showbiz magazine Variety said Eric Kripke had signed the exclusive deal and would continue to produce and run the show, which enters its fourth season this autumn and follows the adventures of demon-hunting brothers Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles).

Kripke also will start to develop other projects. There's no details yet about whether one of the new titles might be a Supernatural spinoff, but Kripke previously said that he is interested in doing a prequel to Supernatural that takes place in the Old West and centres on the show's mythology.


Kripke spoke recently to TV Guide with some spoiler information about what's coming up in the next season. The site also reports that Jensen Ackles is on the nominations ballot for the 2008 Emmy Awards in the category of Outstanding Lead Actor in a Dramatic Series.   Ackles, 30, is currently in Pittsburgh filming horror flick My Bloody Valentine: 3D, in which he plays Tom Warden, a mentally unstable young man who returns to his home town ten years after a series of 22 brutal murders were committed and finds himself the lead suspect. The movie comes out on January 23, 2009.
