“The CW unveiled the backdoor pilot for its Supernatural spin-off on Wednesday night. The result? Ratings were up — a little. Bloodlines posted 2.1 million viewers and a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49, up a tenth of a point from last week. Just as notably, the episode was up 25 percent from its Originals lead-in. EW readers were pretty down on the pilot, with only 30 percent wanting to see more in our poll.
“After months of waiting, Supernatural is finally giving fans their first taste of the CW’s planned spinoff Supernatural: Bloodlines, which focused on the various mafia-esque monster families that run the underbelly of Chicago.”
Tune in to Winchester Radio this Friday, May 2, 2014 at 8:00 PM Eastern Time (USA). We will be discussing the Supernatural episode, ‘Bloodlines.’
“For nine seasons, the CW series has followed brothers Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) on the road, fending off angels, demons, hell and the Apocalypse. But the show’s mythology expands with the introduction of new characters, a Chicago setting and an organized-crime angle tonight (9 ET/PT) in an episode that serves as a pilot for a possible spinoff tentatively called Supernatural: Bloodlines.”
“Ever since the words Supernatural Spinoff were uttered a few months ago, the fandom for The CW smash has been buzzing for any kind of scoop, news or information about the episode that will serve as a backdoor pilot for the intriguing new series.”
“Supernatural scribe Andrew Dabb penned the Bloodlines episode and talked with TV Fanatic about what we can expect ; why Chicago was the perfect setting; how much we might see Sam and Dean moving forward; and this being The CW, just how sexy the spinoff will be.”
