Supernatural Season 13th Synopsis:

The exciting journey of the Winchester brothers continues as SUPERNATURAL enters its thirteenth season. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have encountered every kind of supernatural threat, facing down monsters, demons, and gods. Saving people, hunting things, and keeping the world safe. In the show’s twelfth season, the Winchesters were reunited with their long-dead mother and joined forces with the British arm of the Men of Letters. But things turned from bad to worse, with the return of Lucifer and the surprising revelation that the Devil is expecting a child. Now, Sam and Dean find themselves facing a creature of almost unimaginable power… one that could save the world… or destroy it. SUPERNATURAL is from Warner Bros. Television in association with Wonderland Sound and Vision, with executive producers Robert Singer (“Midnight Caller”), Andrew Dabb, and Phil Sgriccia.

Invader Zim to return in TV movie!

Invader Zim, one of Nickelodeon’s weirdest ever cartoon series is going to return to television in the form of a new TV movie!

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Nickelodeon is moving ahead with the project, putting the series in the same category as Hey Arnold! and Rocko’s Modern Life, which are also getting TV movies from the network.

Apparently, it’s all a part of the network’s devotion to celebrating 25 years of Nicktoons and providing new content for fans of the original series who are now a lot older. Not just the fact that they have not come up with any decent since then!

Stephen Hillenburg diagnosed with ALS

It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to report that Stephen Hillenburg (creator of SpongeBob Squarepants) has been diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

In a statement the 55-year-old said that he would continue to work on the animated series “for a long as I am able.”

“I wanted people to hear directly from me that I have been diagnosed with ALS,” Hillenburg said. “Anyone who knows me knows that I will continue to work on ‘SpongeBob SquarePants’ and my other passions for as long as I am able. My family and I are grateful for the outpouring of love and support. We ask that our sincere request for privacy be honored during this time.”

ALS causes the death of neurons that control voluntary muscles. There is no known cure for the disease.
