This week saw the return of Supernatural day, which celebrates the anniversary of the show’s first episode. Eleven years later Supernatural is heading into season 12, and The CW just released a fiery new poster.
The poster gives us our first look at a possible setting for Supernatural season 12. The tagline “Meet Them On The Dark Side” as well as a flaming gateway seems to suggest that the Winchester’s will explore a new realm in season 12. Could we perhaps see the return of Purgatory? I guess we’ll have to wait until October to find out.
The twelfth season of Supernatural is set to explore a whole new side to the show. Not only is Mary Winchester back in the land of the living, but Castiel will have a more central and personal role in the upcoming episodes. While talking to TV Line showrunner Andrew Dabb revealed that season 12 will tell a more personal story about Castiel and his relationships with the Winchester brothers and their recently resurrected mother.
“He and Mary have a connection. It’s not a romantic one, but they have a lot in common. They’re both strangers in a strange land, in a way. We wanted to focus Cas down a bit more. He feels responsible for Lucifer getting out of the cage, although as we’ll learn, pretty much everyone else on our show feels responsible for that, too. Obviously, as threats to Sam and Dean come up, he will be there to stand by our boys’ side.”
