@CW_Network  When last we saw the brothers Winchester, angel-turned-adversary Castiel (Misha Collins) announced that he is now God. Season seven of Supernatural then picks up directly after said proclaimation as fans will finally learn if Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) bow to their Lord, what kind of God is Castiel going to be and of course, what happened to their beloved Impala. To help tease those answers and more, executive producers Robert Singer and Sera Gamble took questions from the press following a screening of the season premiere and yours truly was there.

First things first, will the Impala live to drive the Winchester boys from one Supernatural adventure to the next or is it off to the scrap heap? The answer, of course, is yes. Gamble explained that the repairing of the vehicle serves an important purpose in tonight’s premiere. “We figured it was a good way to show the passage of time, actually,” she said, “because you’re watching Castiel do all this amazing stuff and we didn’t want it to feel like he did all that stuff around the world in one day so watching the Impala slowly be restored is a good way of letting you know that some time has passed.” Singer also added with a grin, “Like the show, it’s the car that won’t die.”

While it might be too spoilery to talk about exactly what Castiel does in the season opener, the EPs could talk about the always-enjoyable demon, Crowley (Mark Sheppard), and what the new season holds for him. “You’ll see more of Crowley,” Gamble teased. “Crowley is sort of the ultimate self-interested character. He always finds a way to bend whatever is happening to his own best uses and as the weather kind of changes he figures out how to insert himself in the situation. There’s a reason he’s lived this long and there’s a reason he always finds the parachute under his seat. As things evolve this season we’ll see him try to adapt.”

Of course, with so much going on with the Impala, Castiel and Crowley, that doesn’t mean in the least that there’s not some major story stirring for the Winchester brothers. In fact, Singer revealed, Dean is in for some new twists and turns that we’ve never seen him immersed in on the show. “Dean will have lots of issues this year that’s he’s going to have to deal with. I think in the first 13 episodes he probably will carry a rockier….CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE
