I just got this about an hour ago from Warner Brothers.  It's the long anticipated information on the Supernatural panel at the San Diego Comic Con this year.  The panel will be held on Sunday July 25 at 11:15 am - 12:15 pm.  In VERY exciting news, Supernatural this year will hold their panel in the coveted Ballroom 20.  This venue holds over 4,000 people, or twice as many fans as the previous room 6BCDF.  This is where all the big TV shows have gotten their spotlight in the past so its very excited to see Supernatural hit this level of prestige at the event.

Panelists currently announced are only Eric Kripke, Sera Gamble, and Ben Edlund.  The cast are TBD, although Jim Beaver did tweet a few weeks back that he would be there.  Below is the entire press release from Warner Brothers, which includes info about their 14 shows that will be there, including the Smallville panel that will happen immediately before the Supernatural one. 


Stars and Producers of “The Big Bang Theory,” “Chuck,” “Fringe,”
“Human Target,” “Nikita,” “Smallville,” “Supernatural,” “V,”

Best TV Series of the Past 20 on eonline


The Tubey Awards


and the TV.com NOW Award (http://www.tv.com/tv-now-awards/?tag=mktg_TVN_AdCampaign_OMD_Google&p=1).



There's one I'd like to add too, but you have to be from ages 13-19. Supernatural is again up for a Teen Choice Award, because Fantasty/Sci-Fi TV show.


If you're young enough, or like me and has a child in that age range, go show your support for your show. Thanks to all that have already voted! Keep doing so and the rest of us slackers need to get moving (I'm guilty too!) After all, we've got to kill time somehow this summer. We're only five weeks in.

Happy voting everyone! 
First we heard a couple weeks ago about The CW's first ever Emmy campaign "OMFG FYC"  (yes, seriously) including Supernatural, Smallville, The Vampire Diaries and Gossip Girl and now the Ghostfacers are getting their due!  
The Ghostfacer's Producer, Patrick Doody, and Warner Brothers have submitted Ghostfacers' Webisode #3 for the Outstanding Special Class - Short Format Live Action Entertainment Programs category.  They need fan support to show how much we love this web spinoff of Supernatural.  Here are a couple ways you can help:

-  Go to the follow thread on TheWB.com forums and share how much you enjoy the Ghostfacers.  Even a simple "like it" or "love it" will do!  The idea is the show the Emmy voters the fan support behind the show.   


-  Share the following link to the main web page for the campaign.  Encourage people to watch and show support!  Voting for the Emmys closes on June 21st, so the idea is to generate as much buzz as quickly as possible. 


-  If you like sending messages to news media buzzing about your favorite show, send them the Emmy Page link.  Mention in the press helps too with a campaign of this sort.  Preferred sites are EW.com, Sci-Fi Wire, and Ain't It Cool News, but any buzz that can be linked is good buzz. 

Who knows, if the Emmy voters are impressed enough, hopefully this can also lead to more webisodes in the future.  So if you want to see the Ghostfacers live on, or at least get some well deserved recognition, please try to help out in some way.  Fan activism is fun!!!  

This weekend was the Rising Con in Barcelona, Spain.  Jared, Jensen, Misha, Jim, and Samantha Ferris were all in attendance.  Also there was our good friend Lynn from Fangasm and here's of a report of the J & J panel.  Nothing spoilerish in this one, although the reason "Swap Meat" fell apart makes total sense now.  It's the perfect Hellatus killer!  

There's something on YouTube too from the con showing the crowd and the J's involved in World Cup fever.  It's rather amusing once you get over the shaky cam. 

Also, here's a summary of tweets on livejournal about the J & J panels.  It's still not horribly specific, but pretty interesting.  No spoilers, they both have no clue what's happening in season six, which tells me they haven't seen a script yet.  The first episode films in two weeks, and it will be the one Jensen is directing.  It will air as the third episode of the season.


Oh, did I mention Jensen thinks there will be a season seven?  Yeah, you want to read this now, don't you?
Once again, Supernatural fans have proven the amazing things this fandom can do.  This time, I can't think of an effort more well deserved.  In today's edition of The Hollywood Reporter magazine, the following full page ad was printed for all in the entertainment business to see (picture courtesy of Supernaturalwiki.com).

Yes, thanks to an organized fan effort, money was raised to take out this ad to show how much we Supernatural fans love and appreciate this creative genius behind the show that has affected all our lives.  Not only was money raised for the ad, but $2,000 extra was raised and that money will be donated to charity.  Congratulations to the fans who donated and pulled this together to make this long overdue recognition a reality.  Also, thank you so much Eric Kripke for five wonderful seasons and all your dedication.  We can never thank you enough, but hopefully this ad is a start!   

For those that find the print hard to read, here's the transcript:

"To Eric Kripke,

Over the past five years, we've traveled the back roads of America with the Winchester brothers saving people, hunting things, and kicking ass at the family business. We fell in love with a 1967 Impala, classic rock and emotionally codependent brothers all thanks to you. It was your imagination and vision that brought Supernatural to life and imbued it with such heart and scope.

Thank you for the last five years of Supernatural. Thank you for letting Sam and Dean Winchester be a part of our lives. On whatever road you travel next, know that your fans will gladly shut their cakeholes and ride shotgun with you.

Thank you.

Organized and funded by Supernatural fans around the world.

"First of all, I love our fans.  I love them to death.  I love how passionate they are... We are so conscious and aware of our fans.  We're making our show for the fans; we're not making the show for the network.  We would never do anything to betray them."  - Eric Kripke


Now who wants some pie? 


As I've reported before, Supernatural is coming to Blu-Ray on June 15th. Now on Movieweb.com, there are actually video clips promoting it!

The other though is a new clip of Eric Kripke promoting a new Special Feature, The Devil's Road Map. Check it out!

Gag Reel
Can you believe we’ve already gone through almost three weeks of Hellatus? Considering there’s plenty more to go, I’ll stop there. So many new things are happening here at The Winchester Family Business and our bulging Inbox needs a little thinning out, so here’s all the latest.

   -  Welcome to our Winchester Family Business staff Jenniffer and Elena M! Elena M you all know pretty much. She’s contributed a few articles to the site already (recently Things to Ruin Part 1 and 2) and is now a full fledged writer for the site. Congratulations to her and I can’t wait to see what she has to offer in the future.
      Jenniffer is a long time Internet friend of mine, someone that I actually met in my years with the House fandom. She is the new site administrator, helping me with all the duties required to keep up with this fast growing site on a daily basis. From a year ago, we get about seven times the traffic now and each month grows more. The ideas me and others have for this site are flying and thanks to her help, I can get back to programming all the wonderful new features I envision for your enjoyment (check out our new Photo Gallery). I can start writing again too. 
So join me in welcoming Elena M and Jenniffer. I’m sure their contributions will be more than valuable. 
In addition to the synposis, the cast list was released too.  Yes, Misha Collins is still a series regular.  And Eric Kripke is still Executive Producer.
Um, beware!  You think we're going mad now, September just got farther away.  Here is the season six synposis for Supernatural via the CW.
