“I’m going to play in Kripke’s newest playground”

Last month, Eric Kripke said he wants a reunion with Jared Padalecki in Season 5, and that’s exactly what’s happening. Jared Padalecki told Variety:

Well, I will say this: Kripke and I texted today. It hasn’t been written yet, but I think he said (the final season) won’t be filmed until 2025. So yeah, I’m going to play in Kripke’s newest playground. I had a great time the first time, so I’m sure I’ll have a great time here again. I like the show. I find it hilarious and exciting. But you asked what my plans were for the future – and I love Jensen and Eric Kripke. Obviously, I will be indebted to (Kripke) and forever associated with him. Thanks to him I met my wife. Thanks to him, I was Sam Winchester. “Supernatural” happened because of him. So when I’m working with him on a show that I enjoy, I’m like, “Yeah, when do I fly out?” But I don’t think we would film in January anyway.

Why was Hiker cancelled?

About what happened to HikerIt’s no surprise that the series was canceled after The CW, which wants to be cheap with its content, was acquired by Nexstar:

I feel like The CW that I was a part of last year is not the CW that I was a part of under (former Chairman and CEO) Mark Pedowitz for that entire stretch of almost 20 years. They’re just changing the network, where it’s not so much a TV network as it is, ‘Here’s something fun for an hour that you’ll never see again, but hopefully you’ll watch it. And it’s cheap!’ And I hate to say that, but I’m just being honest. I mean, fuck it. They can’t fire me again. I’m just being brutally honest. I think to me it felt like they were looking for really easy, cheap content that they could fill their time with.

New episodes of The boys airs every Thursday on Amazon Prime Video.
