Supernatural (Tuesday nights, 9pm, CW)
By Paula R. Stiles

The season is over, so no new episodes until the Fall (Yes, the dreaded Hellatus is upon us). But we still have repeats. This week, the repeat is “Fan Fiction.”

Predictably, the show got a 23-episode order from the CW, along with The Flash and Arrow. The Vampire Diaries and The Originals got a slightly smaller order of 22 episodes. iZombie and The 100 got 13 episodes (though it appears iZombie may get a back-9 order if it does well).

Season 11 will start filming on July 7 (the Tuesday before Comic-Con) and wrap up on April 20.

Nicki Aycox (Meg 1.0) did a live chat on June 19 on her homepage.

Hillywood also did a live chat on June 17 on YouTube about their highly-successful parody of the show.

The repeat of “Paper Moon” dropped a bit to a 0.2/1 in demo and rose slightly in audience to 0.81 million in audience.


We’ll be back next week with more news, spoilers and blatantly unabashed self-promotion. Stay tuned and check out our reviews of Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Torchwood, The Event, Once Upon a Time, Grimm and Supernatural.
