Fans have pointed out that season 1 was more true to the mythology, and season 2 was more episodic, and now everyone is expecting a return to mythology, has there really been this shift back and forth, or is that all just the perception of the fans?
Supernatural seems like the type of project that would work well as a feature. Has there been any talk, or moves in that direction?
No feature film. That hasn’t risen its head, although we’d probably love to do that. We’re becoming sort of a brand in a slow way. We have a comic book out, it’s really going very well, and that’s sort of like a preamble to where the show picked up. A lot of the Winchesters, and there’s a lot of mythology in that about the boys as kids, and all that sort of thing. We haven’t really gotten into Internet things, always been talking about that, but it’s so hard doing one of these shows. Just kind of getting the show out is hard enough. But we’d love to do a movie, that’d be great fun.
How big a change was switching networks?
No, not really. There’s always some talk about trying to get some of these guys to do an episode. The fear with that is that they couldn’t quite get it done on our schedule. Wes Craven gave us a nice blurb, he likes the show, but it’s not something that we’ve really gone out. If Stephen King wants to write a script, we’re certainly open.
It seems like whenever genre shows become popular, the press calls it a new “Golden Age.” Do you think there is a viable connection between fantasy and horror and the general interest level in television?
