He'll be back. The show wouldn't be the same without both brothers. Dean is my personal favorite, but the show needs both for balance. I think Dean will be different because of what happened to him. They'll have to explain how he comes back in the same body though.
Thank God! I have never hated a character (with the exception of Dawn from BTVS) as much as Bella and think the end wrote for her was deserved. \(^_^)/ I am also a Dean fan, if he hadn't returned to the show neither would I.
I think Dean adds character to the show. Sam does too but I think Dean does more. Really it's a toss up between the two. The show would suck if it hadn't been for both Sam and Dean. I think Dean will be back although they'll have to find a way for him to come back after going to hell. He's died before but never went to hell. I'm definitely hooked! Come on Season 4!
I don't think Dean really went to hell. If you remember in the end of the last show, he was suspended from what looked like wires. I read it to mean he was in some sort of limbo instead of being in hell. I think Sam will use his powers to bring Dean back before his body decays and that's how they will explain it. I do think he will be different when he returns and Sam, I think, will be much darker in Season 4. CAN'T WAIT until it starts!!
If you remember, they made a reference to Hellraiser and there were a lot of chains in that movie, so yeah, he probably is in hell. However, don't forget that Sam has demon blood in him. I wouldn't be surprised if he finds his way down there and drags his brother out. I'm guessing he's gonna pay a visit to the hellgate
According to an article on tvguide.com, the new season will begin four months after the third ends. Dean will be alive, but won't remember what he had been through. They will explain what Sam and Dean were each going through for those months through a series of flashbacks during the season.
Yes, they are bringing Dean back. They know they can't have Supernatural without Dean. I think they also know that if they don't bring him back, they'll have a lot of enraged fans (and fangirls...) on their hands causing riots. So yes, I am very confident Dean will make a return.
I wish I didn't know this! I am ready to start season #2, and #3 is on preorder! That sounds like a major cliffhanger, as to Dean's predicament, so my money is on that he will return. Dean can not be replaced, or written off this series. It wouldn't even be the same!!! Besides, I think that they are both cute in their own way. They play off of each other well, and their personalities come together naturally.
I can't imagine Supernatural without Dean. He's so good looking!! I probably wouldn't watch it without him. I like Dean's rugged sort of personality and look. He already has a certain attitude about him....I can't wait to see how he acts after being to hell. The flashback idea sounds really good.
Supernatural had a booth at comic con this year where they showed the first 5 minutes of the first episode of season 4. You can probably find it on youtube. But yeah, it focusses on Dean so he's definately not leaving the show.
Ruby is supposed to come back I thought. I was on cone of Kate Cassidy's fan pages and it said she was confirmed to come back. And Jensen Ackles has to stay through the 5th season, it's in his contract. But after that he is hoping to get away from SPN and start his career in movies.
