Basic info and cast
Created by Eric Kripke and produced by Warner Bros. Television, Supernatural is an American science-fiction television series that follows the lives of two brothers, Sam and Dean Winchester, as they hunt demons, ghosts and monsters. America’s longest-running science fiction series, Supernatural was renewed for eleventh season in January of 2015. Season 11 of the series premiered on The CW on October 7, 2015.
After their mother burns down in a suspicious house fire and their father disappears on a demon hunting trip, Dean, who is the older brother, pulls Sam out of Stanford University and the two begin living a life on the road, hunting supernatural beings and collecting information about their father’s whereabouts. Eventually, they do find their father, who ends up trading his life so Dean can live after a car crash.
In season 11, the brothers continue living out of their Chevy Impala, and hunt rabid people and The Darkness, the main antagonist since the tenth season. Because The Darkness has existed before the world was ever created, she is possibly the most powerful supernatural creature that has ever come on the path of the Winchester brothers.
Although there has not been any official news on the fate of the series, rumor has it that The CW president, Mark Pedowitz, stated that he has no intention of the current season being the last. Thus, we are sure to see Supernatural Season 12 some time in the near future.
