When producers Eric Kripke and Sera Gamble revealed at San Diego Comic Con that there would be a bunch of new and interesting characters in the next season of "Supernatural", they didn't say it would be Paris Hilton. The socialite, in her own words, has confirmed her cameo, writing on Twitter, "love the show Supernatural. It rocks! So excited! :)"
The casting news was first reported by E! Online that revealed Paris will appear in the fifth episode. The new season premieres on September 10 at 9/8c. Therefore, the episode with Paris in it can be expected to air around the second week of October.
While the casting of Paris is mind-boggling, Kripke reportedly has prepared a very fitting storyline. E! which claimed to have heard about it, described it as "awesome". A source told the site, "The fans should trust Eric Kripke."
During the show's panel at Comic Con last month, the producers said that many mythological creatures from the bible including God himself will appear at some point of the show. They are also going to have celebrity ghosts such as Abraham Lincoln.
*Update: Chicago Tribune acquired more detail about her role from Sera Gamble. "She plays the role of a demonic creature that takes the form of... Paris Hilton," Gamble said.
