Season 7

Twenty-six 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, "Watchmen") 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 battled every kind of supernatural threat. After dozens of bloody adventures, they finally closed in on their dark destiny: with the help of their friends, father-figure Bobby (Jim Beaver, "Deadwood") and fallen angel Castiel (Misha Collins, "24"), they managed to avert the Apocalypse. But the victory came at terrible cost: Sam sacrificed himself, to be imprisoned in Hell alongside Lucifer. Devastated, Dean retired to civilian life—and was shocked when, a year later, a mysteriously resurrected Sam appeared at his door. Back in the hunt, the brothers faced increasingly strange, deadly creatures, ultimately fighting their way to the original monster—the Mother Of All. And Dean discovered the shocking, dangerous truth about Sam: he'd returned from Hell—but without his soul, leaving him calculating and untrustworthy. In a risky move, Dean restored Sam's soul, but at great cost. Sam was flooded with horrific memories of Hell, memories that threatened to overtake him, even kill him. Meanwhile, Civil War in Heaven raged on. Castiel, determined not to lose, made the reckless choice to open a door to Purgatory, repository for all monster souls. His gambit: harness the power of those souls by absorbing them. Ignoring Sam and Dean's warnings, Castiel made a deal with the King of Hell to find that door.

Now, despite Sam and Dean's efforts to stop him, Castiel has succeeded in his plan. His power is God-like, and Sam and Dean have no idea how to stop him. But even Castiel doesn't truly understand the magnitude of what's inside him — or how dangerous he really is.

Season 7 finds Dean and Sam reeling from the loss of their friend. Sam's violent memories of Hell threaten to overtake him, threatening not just his life, but his brother's as well. Meanwhile, Dean struggles under the weight of a secret that threatens to tear them apart. And even as the brothers traverse the backroads of America, hunting things that go bump in the night, something is coming for them. They are about to face an enemy more canny and adaptable than any they've ever fought. As the landscape around them becomes increasingly treacherous, the tools they've come to rely upon will be stripped away. Our heroes, like so many outlaws before them, will find themselves utterly outmatched and outgunned, with no one to rely on but each other.

Season 6

Season 6 continues the thrilling and terrifying journey of the Winchester Brothers.

Twenty-six 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, "Watchmen") 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 spent their lives on the road, cruising America's highways in their 1967 Chevy Impala, battling supernatural threats and searching for the demon that killed their mother. Together with their father, they finally closed in on that demon. Ultimately, they brought the demon down, but they paid dearly for it. Their father lost his life. And then Sam, too, was killed in the fight. Unable to go on without his brother, Dean made the ultimate sacrifice. He summoned a deal-making Crossroads Demon and exchanged his soul for the life of his brother. The deal brought Sam back to life — but left Dean with a single year to live. At the end of that year ... Dean was dragged to Hell.

Last season, Dean made a shocking return from the grave — raised from Hell by the Angel Castiel (Misha Collins, "24"). Sam and Dean discovered that while in Hell, Dean had been tricked into breaking the First of the Sixty-Six Seals of Lucifer; seals that kept the Devil himself locked in his cage in Hell. Now, a fierce army of Angels was scrambling to keep the powerful demon Lilith from breaking the rest and setting Lucifer free. As the year wore on and Seals continued to break, Sam worked with double-agent demon Ruby to become strong enough to kill Lilith — by drinking increasing quantities of her blood. Sam's psychic demon-fighting abilities increased, but he also became addicted to the blood, and his relationship with Dean frayed to the breaking point. Ultimately, Sam severed ties with Dean and went with Ruby to kill Lilith. He succeeded — and only then did he discover that Ruby had been secretly working on the side of the demons all along. Ruby's task: to manipulate Sam into killing Lilith — because Lilith's death was the final Seal. And with her fall, Lucifer's cage opened. Though Sam and Dean reunited and together killed Ruby, they were unable to stop what Sam had set into motion.

Now, Lucifer is free. The Apocalypse is here. Angels with hidden agendas are applying pressure on Dean to take his special place in a spectacular battle to slay Lucifer and bring Paradise in a battle sure to kill millions. Dean refuses to help at the expense of so many human lives. And so, against a landscape of escalating celestial violence, natural disasters foretold in the Book of Revelation, and a rising human death toll, Sam and Dean scramble for a way to do the impossible: Kill the Devil. Their only ally: Castiel, now Fallen and a fugitive from the armies of Heaven. Along the way, they face the type of supernatural threat that has become the show's signature — demons, vampires, the Trickster, cursed objects, wicked gods, disturbed sprits — as well as James Dean's death car, the ghosts of Lincoln, Gandhi and Jerry Garcia, a bloodthirsty creature in the form of Paris Hilton ... and a menacing, unshaven, six-foot-two Tooth Fairy out to take every last one of your teeth. Not to mention the Antichrist.

Prior Seasons

The CW's "Supernatural" takes viewers on a journey into the dark world of the unexplained.

On "Supernatural," Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki, "Gilmore Girls") has done his best to escape his family's eerie history. Unlike his older brother Dean (Jensen Ackles, "Smallville"), Sam rejected their father's obsessive quest to uncover the evil forces that claimed the life of the boys' mother, Mary (guest star Samantha Smith). Putting as much distance as possible between himself and his family, Sam left home right after high school and went away to college. His new life includes a beautiful and loving girlfriend, Jessica (guest star Adrianne Palicki), and plans to enter law school. Dean, however, took a very different path, following their father, John (Jeffrey Dean Morgan, "Weeds"), into the "family business." When Dean arrives on Sam's doorstep with the news that their father has vanished, Sam has no choice but to put his personal plans on hold and join Dean on the road.

After four years apart, the reunited brothers on "Supernatural" are getting to know one another again, and their familiar sibling rivalries are never far from the surface. Despite the strange childhood they shared, these boys turned out to have very different views of the world. Dean still idolizes John and, although he often appears cocky and fearless, in reality he is haunted by memories of his mother's violent death. Sam was too young to remember the awful night that Mary died and has never fully accepted the frightening path his father and brother have followed.

A mysterious phone message from their father leads the Winchester brothers to a California town plagued by a series of unexplained deaths. They soon come face-to-face with the local legend of a Lady in White — a ghostly and beautiful hitchhiker who wanders country roads by night, luring young men to their doom. Though they don't find their father, Dean and Sam discover his journal and try to decipher his writings for clues that will help them destroy the spirit.

Bound by tragedy and blood to their dangerous, other-worldly mission on "Supernatural," the brothers travel from the Colorado wilderness to Nebraska farmlands and on to isolated Wisconsin lakes, encountering creatures that most people believe only exist in folklore, superstition and nightmares — the terrifying Bloody Mary, the brutal Native American beast known as the Wendigo, the man with a hook who haunts Lovers' Lanes and the dark Phantom Travelers who portend a violent plane crash. As they follow the clues in their father's journal, the brothers realize that he has passed on to them all the knowledge he accumulated during the past 20 years. What they can't understand is why he has vanished and left them to carry on without him. Taking up the mantle of their father's crusade, Dean and Sam hunt down the evil that preys upon the innocent in the darkest corners of America.

Crisscrossing the lonely and mysterious back roads of the country in their '67 Chevy Impala on "Supernatural," the Winchester brothers search desperately for their missing father — and hunt down every evil supernatural force they encounter along the way.

"Supernatural" is from Warner Bros. Television Production Inc. in association with Wonderland Sound and Vision, with executive producers McG ("Charlie's Angels," "The O.C."), writer/executive producer Eric Kripke ("Boogeyman") and Robert Singer ("Midnight Caller").
