#SDCC17: Supernatural Invades Hall H with Kansas in Tow; Brings a Sizzle Reel and More Info on Wayward Sisters Spin-off

Published

on

Hall H was filled with a lot of “rock star” type celebrities during this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, but “Supernatural” brought some actual rock stars along for their SDCC panel today… The band Kansas surprised those in attendance with a performance of the show’s unofficial theme song, “Carry on Wayward Son,” and you can check out the video below.

Things kicked off with a clip of stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles heading down to San Diego for Comic-Con. They cracked jokes and drove off, but as the screen went black, Kansas started playing the song on the Hall H stage. The crowd went nuts as the screens became a virtual scrapbook of the previous 12 seasons of the series.

Deadline also provided a few details of what transpired during the panel, which was moderated by “Supernatural” alumni Rob Benedict (Chuck/God) and Richard Speight, Jr. (The Trickster/Gabriel). They were joined by executive producers Bob Singer and Andrew Dabb plus Padalecki and Ackles. Shortly after, Misha Collins (Castiel) crashed the panel.

When asked what the brothers are going to do with Jack, the son of Lucifer (Mark Pellegrino) and Kelly Kline (Courtney Ford), Padalecki pointed out that he may be half Lucifer, but he is also half Kelly — which means he might not be all bad.

“Sam, ever the optimist, is trying to figure out the best thing to do,” said Padalecki, “while Dean is more of a shoot now, ask questions later guy.”

“It’s our version of hell’s My Two Dads,” Dabb explained.

And what about Mary, who went into the alternate dimension at the end of Season 12? Singer said, “Sam wants to find mom because he thinks she is still alive while Dean wants to move on. Spoiler alert: Mom is not dead.”

When asked who could come back to the series, given that there’s now a rift between worlds, Singer and Dabb stayed typically mum but did reveal that “the rift could open up the world to old characters coming back,” according to Dabb.  “Some people who are long dead in our world are not dead in apocalypse world.”

Now, as for the highly anticipated spin-off, “Wayward Sisters,” a few more details were revealed. Deadline learned that Briana Buckmaster, Kathryn Newton, and Katherine Ramdeen from the original series have closed deals to join the proposed spin-off, which is headed up by long-running fan favorite Kim Rhodes. Also cast in the project, which is being developed as a planted spin-off and will have a backdoor pilot airing as an episode of the series’ upcoming 13th season, is young actress Clark Backo (“Designated Survivor”), who would play a newly created character.

“Wayward Sisters” (named in part after the title of the Kansas song that opens every “Supernatural” finale, “Carry On Wayward Son”) will tell the story of Sheriff Jody Mills (Rhodes) and a group of troubled young women — all orphaned by supernatural tragedy. Under Mills’ training and protection, these “wayward sisters” emerge as a formidable force against the supernatural. Lending Jody a hand will be Sheriff Donna Hanscum (Buckmaster), a relative novice to the hunter’s life, but a close friend in whom Jody can confide.

Newton will reprise her role as orphan Claire Novak, who was introduced to the supernatural world when her father became the vessel for Castiel. Now a gifted hunter in her own right, she lives with Jody but rebels against her rules. Ramdeen is runaway Alex Jones, who was put in Jody’s care after she was rescued by the Winchesters from a family of vampires who used her as a lure for unsuspecting humans. Traumatized by the violence, she has resolved not to hunt… until a threat emerges in Sioux Falls that threatens her new family.

Newcomer Backo will play Patience Turner. A high school over-achiever, Patience’s life is turned upside down when she discovers she’s a powerful psychic, a gift she inherited from her estranged grandmother Missouri Moseley. Hunted by dark forces for her power, Patience finds refuge with Jody and her wayward family.

In addition, Loretta Devine, who played Moseley in a memorable appearance as a Winchester family friend and Kansas psychic in the Season 1 episode “Home,” will return to “Supernatural” for an episode in the upcoming season.

As reported previously, the spin-off hails from a quartet of “Supernatural” writers-producers: showrunners Andrew Dabb and Robert Singer as well as Phil Sgriccia and Robert Berens, all of whom will serve as exec producers.

“Supernatural” Season 13 premieres Thursday, October 12th, at 8/7c on The CW. Look for lots more soon!

The Strangers: Prey at Night Set Visit Part 2: Screams and Flames

Published

on

[SPOILERS] As mentioned in our earlier set visit story, The Strangers: Prey at Night maintains the same feeling of isolation as the original. Even though a full-fledged production was going on in Gatlin Lake Getaway, it is hard to shake that feeling of being totally alone once wandering away from the set lighting. The dark surround woods start to close in and threaten to swallow any who stray too close to the tree line. Then the silence is broken as a beat-up 1972 Ford Ranger’s engine revs and a scream slices through the night.

Back on the lit street, the familiar looking truck has collided head-on with the side Wagner County Sheriff’s SUV. At the driver’s seat of the Ford is a man sporting a white cloth bag as a mask. The Bagman has returned. His appearance has not changed. The empty sockets of the mask still glare ominously and the painted smile poorly hides the stranger’s murderous intent.

An air of frustration surrounds the Bagman as he attempts to free the truck from the SUV. In vain, the Ford revs and struggles to no avail. Bad news for him, but good news for whomever the Bagman was pursuing. The law enforcement vehicle, with its lights flashing, had been driven by a young woman decked out in a black Ramones t-shirt and blood-splattered jeans. Her hair is jet black. The woman’s skin is streaked with dark blood and open slash wounds. The dark punk eye makeup is running, but the wearer is not.

It is obvious that this woman has been through a lot as she limps from the wreck. The context of her current state is not clear, but the shrieking that emanates from her as she produces a lighter and throws it to the ground under the collided vehicles speaks volumes. It can only be assumed that she has been chased, slashed, and emotionally beaten for hours. The scream is packed with emotions from fear to outright spite and rage. It is so powerful, in fact, that the crew members uttered stunned laudations.

As the gasoline ignites, the flames climb and spread of the mangled metal of the two collided vehicles. The Ford’s engine still violently revs as the Bagman emotionlessly tries to break free. The young woman is slowly backing away, unaware of the chain reaction occurring. The darkness of 1 AM is broken by two giant fireballs that erupt, engulfing the metal mayhem in the middle of the street. The surroundings fall silent, cut is called and the crew erupts in exclamations at the awesome spectacle.

This powerful moment was brought to us by Bailee Madison (Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark).

The Strangers: Prey at Night was now on its twenty-second day of shooting and only eight more days remained. The cast and crew are well accustomed to their routines and the late night shoots have become second nature. When asked if the constant schedule of night shoots had been difficult, Madison elicited some of the virtues that the darkness has to offer, “There’s something very vulnerable about night shoots. You are emotionally in a different place when you’re awake and rested in the daytime. I think for something traumatic like this, you need to be able to access different emotions; at night you’re a lot more capable.”

At this point in production, Bailee’s character has seen a lot of action. A heavy amount of blood adorns the actor’s arms and a thick clotting mass of the red stuff covers most of her forehead. Keeping track of that damage for continuity from day to day looks like a grueling task, and makeup department head Jodi Byrne dropped some details about the process, “We have continuity photos and we take pictures of Bailee constantly throughout the day … We have to determine which takes are actually going to be used in the film and we move from that point.”

Synopsis:
A family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive..
