As I'm sure just about everyone has seen from Michael Ausiello at EW.com, he had a nice conversation with Dawn Ostroff (president of The CW) yesterday at the CW TCA press event.  The TCA (Television Critics Association) Winter Tour is a wonderful annual event for the members of that exclusive club to generate some spring buzz for TV shows as they come back from winter break. 

Anyway, as Michael has been able to scoop, season six of Supernatural is looking more and more official.  The article is certainly exciting news for a Supernatural fan, but hardly surprising.  I've been reporting for some time that season six was almost a certainty.  However, the issue has never been if season six was happening.  The issue has been if Kripke was going to be part of season six.  Judging by Ms. Ostroff's comments yesterday, it sounds like he's coming on board.  Here are my favorite quotes from Ms. Ostroff about our beloved show:

“I had lunch with Eric the other day and he’s really excited about the show right now. I think he feels this season has been really satisfying for him. He’s certainly not running out of ideas by any stretch of the imagination.”

“The ratings are up,” she says. “We have more young women coming to the show than ever before. There aren’t a lot of shows that you can say are doing better in their fifth year.”

One note about the ratings, please keep in mind she's talking about women 18-34.  Overall ratings are down, but then again, overall ratings for everything except The Big Bang Theory are down.  It's down less than all the other CW shows.  So everyone, enjoy the love, and it's time to wildly speculate about season six.
