4. SUPERNATURAL: THE MOVIE?
The show creator Eric Kripke had been working to develop the show for almost 10 years. He originally planned it to be a movie, but later changed it to a TV series before he pitched the idea to WB. The original concept of the show was to be an anthology series. Then it was changed to two tabloid reporters driving in a van across the country and fighting the demon. However, the tabloid reporters idea was disliked by the network so he changed it to the main characters being brothers.
3. BOBBY SINGER WAS SUPPOSED TO LAST ONLY ONE EPISODE
Did you know that the character of Bobby Singer was written on the fly when the actress Loretta Devine wasn’t available to reprise her role of Missouri Mosley, The character of Bobby Singer was supposed to last for only a single episode, but based on the character’s reception, it became a regular.
2. THE DEMON CASTIEL
The actor Misha Collins believed his character Castiel was going to be a demon. The actor originally auditioned for the role of a demon as the creators kept the ‘angels’ thing a secret. They made him believe that he’ll be playing a demon. It was only when he did his first take on the set that the show creator Eric Kripke told him that he’ll be an angel and asked him to switch up a bit. Another interesting fact is that the show was airing on Thursdays and the creators needed a name for the new character. So Eric Kripke randomly googled ‘Angel of Thursday’ and Google returned the name ‘Castiel’.
The brothers drive a 1967 Chevrolet Impala four-door sedan, originally they had decided to use a ’65 Mustang, but Kripke’s neighbor convinced him to use a ’67 Impala. He reasoned that you would want a car ‘where you can put a body in the trunk’ and ‘when people would stop next to it, they would lock their doors’. Eric also believed that ’67 Impala adds authenticity and is a muscular car. The popularity of the show made this particular car model extremely famous to the point that it’s hard to find this model now. Numerous different Impalas have been used on the show and you can find the wrecked Impalas’ parts and pieces lying around in different scenes of the Junkyards. It’s interesting to see how much the baby has survived.
