(CW) – The thrilling and terrifying journey of the Winchester Brothers continues with the 12th season of SUPERNATURAL on The CW, premiering Thursday, October 13th.
Twenty-eight years ago, Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) lost their mother to a mysterious and demonic supernatural force. Subsequently, their father John (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) raised them to be soldiers. He taught them about the paranormal evil that lives in the dark corners and on the back roads of America…and he taught them how to kill it.
Sam and Dean have spent the last nine years battling the things that go bump in the night. Over the years, with the help of the fallen angel Castiel (Misha Collins), and the King of Hell, Crowley (Mark A. Sheppard), the Winchesters have straddled the line between good and evil.
In season nine, power struggles in Heaven and Hell would push the boys beyond their limits. Crowley was pitted against the Knight of Hell, Abaddon (Alaina Huffman), in a civil war for the throne of Hell, while the recently fallen angels formed battling factions, with the boys and Castiel caught in the crossfire of both conflicts. Meanwhile, the egomaniacal former scribe of God, Metatron (Curtis Armstrong), vied to replace the Almighty in the hearts and minds of angels and humans alike. However, absolute power corrupted the scribe, and the brothers were forced to confront the would-be deity, a conflict ending with the death of Dean Winchester. In the shocking final moments of the season, he would be resurrected by the power of the First Blade, opening his eyes to reveal he had been transformed into a demon!
In the show’s tenth season, the Winchester brothers faced their most personal threat yet. The all-powerful Mark of Cain threatened to consume Dean, turning him into one of the monsters he has spent his life hunting. Meanwhile, a formidable witch, Rowena (Ruth Connell), rose to power to claim her position at the right hand of the King of Hell, Crowley. Once Rowena revealed herself to be Crowley’s mother, the King was forced to choose between his family and the Winchesters. All while Sam, with the help of Castiel, Crowley, and some unlikely allies, wages a desperate battle to save Dean from the Mark of Cain. Will Sam be able to find a cure for the Mark in time? Will it be enough to save his brother? And a more frightening prospect – does Dean want to be saved?
The thrilling and terrifying journey of the Winchester brothers continues as SUPERNATURAL enters its eleventh season. Sam and Dean have spent their lives on the road, battling every kind of supernatural threat. Over the years, after countless bloody adventures, they have faced everything from the yellow-eyed demon that killed their mother to vampires, ghosts, shapeshifters, angels and fallen gods. With the help of allies — both human and supernatural — they’ve discovered that every victory comes with a price. What’s left for the brothers to do?
SUPERNATURAL is produced by Wonderland Sound and Vision in association with Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Jeremy Carver (“Being Human”), Robert Singer (“Midnight Caller”) and Phil Sgriccia. Eric Kripke created the series and serves as executive consultant, along with McG.
