SEASON 12 US BROADCAST The CW from 13 October UK BROADCAST E4, TBC
returning SHOW! After a remarkable
11 seasons of monster hunting, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) suddenly have to figure out how the resurrection of their long-dead mother, Mary Winchester (Samantha Smith) will impact... well, everything.
Andrew Dabb, the long-time staff writer-turned-newest showrunner, says the return of their late parent after 30 years won’t be an easy adjustment for the Winchester boys. “it’s not a reality where either of them is sad she’s back in any way, shape or form,” Dabb tells SFX. “it’s more a matter that this is a real person we have to deal with on a day-to-day basis now. We don’t want to drive an unnecessary wedge between Sam and Dean, and i don’t believe Mary will do that, but there will be differences of opinion and there will be things raised that not everybody is on board with. the show revolves around Sam and Dean, and how they react to her is really the core of the season.”
And then there’s the resolution of Sam getting shot in last season’s finale. Dabb teases, “initially Sam is in trouble and Dean is extremely driven to save his brother. As this thing becomes more personal, and we come to understand the British Men of Letters and their point of view, our guys will have different reactions. i believe when the cards are down, Sam and Dean are on the same page all the time, which is to do the right thing. But what is the right thing for either one of them is not always agreed upon.”
Shooting skywards? Watch out, God!
