The thrilling and terrifying journey of the Winchester Brothers continues with the
sixth season of “Supernatural” on The CW.
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 every kind of supernatural threat. And over the years, after
dozens of bloody adventures, they finally closed in on their dark destiny. Sam and Dean
learned they were to be important and prophesied participants in the Apocalypse. Yes,
that Apocalypse; the Biblical Apocalypse—Angels, Demons, the whole nine. Dean was
meant to be the human vessel for the Archangel Michael; Sam was meant to be the vessel
for Lucifer himself. And they were to meet on the final battlefield. Brother versus
brother, winner take all. And so Sam and Dean spent most of last year battling Heaven
and Hell, all to avoid that awful fate. And together with the help of their friends—fatherfigure
Bobby (Jim Beaver) and fallen Angel Castiel (Misha Collins)—they managed to
defeat Michael and Lucifer; managed to defeat Destiny itself. But at a terrible cost. For
Sam sacrificed himself…he was imprisoned in the same fiery pit that caged Michael and
Lucifer. And Dean, heartbroken and alone, was forced to pick up the pieces of his life.
He settled down, unsettled, with a woman – his old flame Lisa () and tried to carry on
without Sam, who was long gone—or was he?
And now, it’s a year later. And while time can’t actually heal all wounds, it can
sometimes dull the pain. Dean finds himself in one of the strangest situations he’s ever
seen (and he’s seen strange): suburbia. Wearing very different hats: a civilian; a
construction worker; a good boyfriend to Lisa; a surrogate father to her son Ben (). That
is, until his past inevitably catches up to him—in the form of Sam, mysteriously freed
from his cage in hell. And Sam needs his brother to rejoin the fight, because a new threat
is rising in the dark corners and backwoods of America. Not demons or angels this time,
but creatures. Vampires. Werewolves. Djinn. And a thousand other freaks. They’re
growing in numbers. Breaking old patterns. And leaving a very thick and bloody trail in
And Sam isn’t alone. He introduces Dean to a world—a family—he never even
knew existed: the Campbells, his mother’s family, lead by none other than their
Grandfather Samuel (Mitch Pileggi). They’re a line of hunters that stretches back to the
country’s gory start-- they were hacking heads off vampires on the Mayflower. And they
want Sam and Dean to carry on the family tradition.
Though torn between his obligation to his blood and to his surrogate family, Dean
is still a gunfighter at heart; and so of course he again picks up his guns. Hitting the road
with Sam. No more Bibles, no more prophecies; just a lot of hunting and killing. That is,
until the brothers realize that nothing is what it seems—not with the rising tide of
carnivorous creatures, and certainly not with each other…
