First off, the big news is that the show is back in production up in Vancouver!
Last week Jensen tweeted that he was heading back to Vancouver to start off on season 11. Jensen is directing the first shooting episode again, which will be airing third. So don't get confused when it's called 11x01 - that is in shooting order, in transmission order it's 11x03!
Jensen was then seen around town over the weekend sporting his epic hiatus beard!
And some mighty good pins I might add...
But come Monday it was time for the Tech Survey and production kicked off proper!
Of course that meant lunch prank time, and it was Clif who was the target!
Big guy's gunna starve!
And here's the team heading out on their crew bus! Spot the Jensen!
Principal shooting for Supernatural season 11 kicks off July 7, and the show comes back to us on October 7.... GAH!
MEANWHILE IN TEXAS....
The other half of the Winchester duo is still on hiatus and having a lovely time apparently!
We all know that Jared was in need of some R&R after a heavy shooting and convention schedule, so it's so wonderful to see our favourite Moose looking so happy and relaxed.
Then the Padalecki, Ackles/Graul families got together to watch a bit of Women's football!
Gorgeous huh? This photo is just full of happy!

“You know it goes back to what we’ve done in the past and it’s like well we fight for each other and then we turn and we face whatever it is that we unleashed, unlocked or created or unveiled, whatever it is, we’ll fix ourselves and we’ll turn and we’ll face it together and hope for the best. I really think that the moral of the story is keep fighting, support one another, fight for one another and never give up. I think by saying, you know we do more harm than good, I think would be them giving up and I don’t think that’s in their blood.”
— Jensen Ackles from The Winchester Mythology: Battling the Mark and the Blade
I'm lucky enough to have watched them all and they are all amazing. But I have to say, the Fans documentary is something very special.
I was so excited to see my friend Sandra and her wonderful chess set featured!
We're so lucky to have this cast and crew. So lucky.
And for those waiting for the Season 10 DVD to watch the extras, it will be released on September 8.

And if you've made a bestie through Supernatural, here's a cool project!
@amanda_elyse88 is putting together a book of photos of Supernatural BFFs to give to Jensen and Jared at NJCon. As someone who has met many, many friends through Supernatural and my best mate at my first Supernatural convention, I think this is a particularly cool project! Especially as the two guys that inspire so many friendships are BFFs themselves!
And just to finish off...
We got our very first spoiler via TV|LINE ! Weeeee! So if you don't want to read it, you can check out now! Thanks for reading, and I'll see you soon!
Question: Any Supernatural spoilers? —Erica
Ausiello: The Jensen Ackles-helmed Season 11 premiere* is titled “The Bad Seed” and now I know why: It marks the introduction of Amara, a femme fatale in her late 20s who possesses an acid tongue and a seductive beauty. The fearmonger is new to Earth and is so not impressed with the place. That doesn’t stop her from sticking around; she’s set to recur throughout the season. Not-So-Crazy-Theory: When The Darkness was released in the finale, this badass came with it.
(*Even though the installment is numbered 1101, Supernatural episodes regularly air out of order — meaning, it could be the second or third ep of the season.)
Of course, we know Jensen's episode is going be be 11x03 in running order.
And that's it for this round of SUPERNATURAL HEADLINE NEWS!
