Look at that! In season eight, Kevin, the Prophet is back – and with a potentially game-changing revelation for the Winchesters (if you call the possibility of leading normal lives game-changing…).

Since the hit CW Network action series, Supernatural has entered it’s seventh season, The Leviathans have given Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester a bigger, even more dangerous enemy to battle than the brothers have faced before. These evil creatures from purgatory make Lucifer look like a choir boy in comparison!
In nerxt week’s new episode of Supernatural, titled ‘Slash Fiction’ (directed by John Showalter and written by Robbie Thompson), two of the Leviathans prove that just because you are a bloodthirsty monster out to destroy the human race doesn’t mean you can’t appreciate wearing the finest in hot looking male fashion. Which is why these two savvy dressers are wearing this season’s coveted ‘Winchester look’ and we aren’t just talking clothes here!
The two Leviathans clone the brothers Winchester; taking on their whole look from sexy head to toe. Unfortunately for the real Sam and Dean, this is more than just a fashion statement for their Leviathan look a likes; it’s a all out fashion war that puts the ‘Winchester Look” on the FBI’s most wanted list because the Leviathans, dressed in this height of hot looking male fashion, have gone on a killing spree. Now, everyone wants the originals because who could believe that ‘knock offs’ could look so perfect. Which means Sam and Dean Winchester have become the subject of a nationwide manhunt and need to drop off the grid and hide out untill they can figure out how to get rid of the Leviathan copycats who are using the ‘Winchester look” for their own nefarious purposes!
Check out the images provided by the CW Network to see more of the Leviathans wearing the hottest look in male fashions and tell us if you think they pull it off as well as the originals do. Oh and the always fashionable Crowley(Mark Sheppard) has his own agenda with the Leviathans, so check him out too.

As Supernatural comes up on its season seven premiere on the CW Network this Friday at 9PM (EST), there is a lot of positive mainstream media buzz surrounding the long running action/thriller series. According to reports, Supernatural, which stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles as the monster hunting/demon fighting brothers Winchester, is receiving more media attention than some series on bigger networks; even more buzz than Glee according to what we’ve been hearing. Supernatural has come a long way to reach that level of success and attention; like the perilous lives of the Winchesters, the road to Supernatural’s success is paved with missteps and with ‘cliffhangers’, as they often waited ‘on the bubble’ for news of renewal.
Six seasons ago, Supernatural premiered on the now defunct WB Network with two relatively unknown actors in the lead roles and having been created by screen writer Eric Kripke; whose major credit up to that point was the horror movie, Boogey Man. This combination however served to create a unique and fascinating series. Sam and Dean Winchester and their black ’67 Chevy Impala ‘muscle car’ loaded with weapons, immediately found a devoted fan following that tuned into the series every week; never losing track of it even through network and airing night changes. Those same fans led an internet campaign to promote the series and rally around it. In those early years, bloggers and online journalists were the biggest form a media promotion for Supernatural as it steadfastly made its way along the path to where it is now; a long running, successful series for Warner Brothers and The CW Network.
Series stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles are now moderately well known outside of the circle of Supernatural fans and viewers; they, along with the series itself, is now capturing the attention of bigger media ‘fish’ in the pond known as entertainment reporting. More than that, Supernatural hit some major marks by scoring a cover on TV Guide by winning the magazine’s first ever ‘Fan Favorite Poll’ last year. Now, Sam & Dean Winchester and Castiel have joined the hallowed ranks of Captain Kirk, Indiana Jones and Doctor Who; all three Supernatural characters were honored in SFX Magazine as part of the ‘Top 100 Icons of Scif-Fi & Fantasy of the 21st Century’ reader’s poll making it a trifecta inclusion for the series.

I guess it’s no big surprise to know that your roving Eclipsemagazine reporter was in the Warner Brother’s Supernatural press room to get all the scoop on Supernatural season 7.
Of course the actors and producers weren’t giving out too many scoops, but what tidbits we did get are more than enough to whet the appetite for Supernatural viewers and fans alike.
We didn’t have time to get Jared to the round table I was seated at, but we did get Jensen Ackles, Sera Gamble and Ben Edlund. So sit back and listen to what this dynamic Supernatural trio had to say about Season Seven!
This Friday May 6th, the hit action series Supernatural comes one episode closer to the rocking finale of Season 6. According to the CW, all hell is going to break loose (yet again) in S6.20 The Man Who Would Be King. In the episode directed by Ben Edlund, who also co-wrote it with Eric Kripke, Castiel (Misha Collins) tells Sam (Jared Padalecki), Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Bobby (Jim Beaver) about the war in Heaven and how he and Raphael ( Demore Barnes) became enemies.
In the last few episodes of the action packed 6th season of Supernatural, viewers and fans of the long running series have seen the Angel Castiel becoming not so angelic as his battle with Raphael reaches the level of desperate measures. In The Man Who Would Be King, Bobby believes Castiel is hiding something, but Dean refuses to believe it. The Winchesters are also dealing with the returned threat of the Demon Crowley ( Mark A. Sheppard) whom it seems Castiel is in league with behind their backs.
The Man Who Would Be King airs on the CW Network this Friday at 9 PM EST right after the last episode of Smallville before it reaches its two-hour series finale next week.
The CW Network made an early announcement of the renewal of five of their top series. Returning for the 2011 Fall television season on the CW will be The Vampire Diaries, 90210, Gossip Girl, America’s Next Top Model and the Friday night action series Supernatural.
In moving to Fridays last September, Supernatural, which stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, immediately helped make The CW more competitive on the night and dramatically contributed to year-to-year gains on Friday of 66% in adults 18-34 and 60% in viewers. Supernatural, which is currently in it’s sixth season, also made it onto not one, but two TV Guide Fan Favorite covers this season. The series, about two monster hunting, demon fighting brothers, continues to gain popularity, new fans and viewers.
