Entertainment Weekly magazine does a four page spread on Supernatural in on the eve of 4.18 The Monster at the End of This Book.
The article talks about the rising popularity of the Show, and Kripke's intention to only do 5 seasons, and the boys' agreement with that. Jensen says:
"We don't live at home. We don't sleep in our own beds. Our families aren't here. Our friends aren't here. Out girlfriends aren't here," Jensen Ackles says of the Vancouver-shot series. "To do it for another five years ... I don't know if I could handle it."
Wincest is mentioned as a "unique and very creepy subset of romantic fanfiction"
In the digital version of the article, Kripke talks about the introduction of the angels, and his 5 year story arc. Jensen mentions to nod to fans in and, in relation to the "they sure do complain a lot line" says "I'm a fan of the show, and I get gripey," the actor says later in his trailer. "Where is [Kripke] going with this? What is happening? Angels and demons? Come on, man!... Then I'll read the next script and it's like, 'Oh, I kinda like that'."
In this article, and a couple of other interviews around the end of the season Kripke emphasised that his story arc only went for 5 seasons, and both Jensen and Jared were less than positive about the idea of continuing after 5 years:
"We don't live at home. We don't sleep in our own beds. Our families aren't here. Our friends aren't here. Our girlfriends aren't here," says Ackles. "To do it for another five years, or whatever, I don't know if I could handle it." Padalecki concurs: "I enjoy working, but what's the point? Do I want to just keep on doing photo shoots and work so I can get more famous so I can do even more photo shoots and work and fly to more places to do more press?... I get sick of talking about myself."
