'Supernatural' Season 8 Spoilers: Jensen to Direct Season Premiere

Jensen Ackles will be putting on his director's cap again. Jensen told Us Weekly at the CW upfront this week that he will be directing the Supernatural Season 8 premiere:

"We don't get a very long break -- it's about two and a half months. I actually have to go back early because I'm going to direct the first episode [of Supernatural]. My break is even a little shorter, but we try to make the most of it. It's not optimal, but as I always say, it's a good problem to have!"

The Season 7 finale of Supernatural airs tonight at 9 pm.
