Season 6 on Sky Living
Watch this trailer for a compelling look at what's in store.
Is it cold in here, or are we just shivering at the thought of Supernatural?
WHAT IS IT?
Brothers Sam and Dean Winchester are bound by a mission to find their missing father, fighting evil forces along the way. Their other-worldly battle began when they were just little boys - their father was consumed with finding the spirits that murdered his wife. His two young sons were trained to help him on his quest and grew up as hunters of dangerous forces; forces mainly believed to be superstition. But as the boys travel across the country and encounter these alleged folkores, they discover that vampires and demons are very real.
TELL ME MORE!
This season promises to be full of mystery and shadow. At the end of season five, Dean and Sam faced their biggest foe of all time: the Devil. The brothers, along with rebel angel, Castiel, stopped Lucifer and saved the world. They found a way to get Satan back into hell, but it cost them dear. The price? Sam's life. Heaven and Hell has been turned upside down after the apocalyptic events of the last series. The world is bleak and lawless; angels, monsters and demons roam in disarray. Dean had retired from hunting and swore he would never go back to that life. But Sam has managed to escape from Hell. Will they be the same people they once were? In a world so scarred, will anything be what it seems?
WHO'S IN IT?
The story focuses on hot-but-very-capable brothers, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) - who make the show worth watching even with the sound turned down. Who needs plot and dialogue? Although Supernatural has both in spades, we hasten to add. The boys' faithful ally, Bobby (Jim Beaver), is still kicking about, as is Castiel the angel. Hurrah!
