Supernatural season 13 was announced by The CW back at the beginning of January alongside almost every one of the shows from the network that film in Vancouver. One of the most talked about parts of the season so far is its 16th episode. During The CW’s Upfront presentation this spring, the network announced that Supernatural season 13 will feature an animated Scooby-Doo themed episode. The episode will feature the Great Dane himself, alongside the regular Supernatural cast who will be playing animated versions of themselves.

In a poll we did back when the news was released, it looks like most Supernatural fans are looking forward to the episode.

According to EW, the season will also feature a backdoor pilot for a spin-off series dubbed Wayward Sisters. The story will be centred around Sheriff Jody Mills, who is played by Kim Rhodes. Mills will lead a group of young women who all have one thing in common: they’re all orphans as a result of supernatural tragedy. Together they will become a united front against supernatural beings.

So we know we’ll be seeing Jody return, as well as Sam and Dean, but the season 12 finale left a lot of questions to be answered beyond that. One notable cast departure that was since announced was Mark Sheppard, who plays Crowley. The actor announced via Instagram that he was leaving the show back on May 23rd. On a more positive note, it seems safe to say that Supernatural season 13 will see the return of Castiel, played by Misha Collins. In a video recorded at the Jus In Bello Convention and uploaded to YouTube by Brielle, Jared dropped Misha’s name in reference to some audio recordings they had completed for the animated episode.
