Who would have thought Supernatural could make it this far? Maybe its 2.5 million viewers. The adventures of Kansas “boys” Sam and Dean Winchester and their black 1967 Chevy Impala, 327, 4-barrel, V-8 engine, automatic, 4-door hardtop remains compelling after all these years. The Vancouver, BC-based production can only really be compared to The X-Files, also full of watchable single, monster-of-the-week, episodes (that you can just pop in to watch even if you’re not watching every episode of the series) as well as ongoing story arcs. But The X-Files only made it nine seasons–so far.
Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles begin their next journey in only a few weeks. And fan favorite Mark Sheppard, who has been on some 50 episodes as Crowley, is back as well. And you can always bet on some good guest stars to show up each season.
Check out the Winchester brothers and Crowley in this preview for Season 11’s premier episode, “The Darkness”–
Supernatural returns to the CW Wednesdays beginning October 7, 2015.
