Supernatural to ‘Spoof’ Twilight
Hold on to your Vervain and copies of Twilight, fangbangers. Supernatural is about to have some fun with your favorite vein-drainers. “We’re doing an episode about how vampires pretending to be Edward Cullen or the Salvatore brothers or Bill Compton are bad for you,” Supernatual showrunner Sera Gamble tells TV Guide Magazine.
At the CW/Showtime/CBS party during the annual Television Critics Association press tour, the creepy drama’s exec producer revealed that one of Season 6’s upcoming episodes (tentatively titled “Live Free or Twi-Hard”) will take fans’ ongoing obsession with undead hotties and hand it to Dean and Sam for a little skewering. “There’s a mythology reason [as to why] we are revisiting a lot of monsters we’ve dealt with before on the show…including vampires,” says Gamble. “And when we were conceptualizing a vampire episode, we thought, ‘Wow there’s never been a better time to be a vampire.’ Chicks are just throwing themselves at them! They think that ‘vampire’ equals ‘I’m not going to try to have sex with you.'” Of course, in a world where vamps actually exist, that kind of thinking can get you killed. Or worse. “They will still take advantage of our children! They will turn you into a vampire or eat you.” Maybe if that original title doesn’t fly, they can go with “There Will Be True Blood.”
I know a lot of Twilight fans are also fans of Supernatural so this is definitely one to look forward to!
