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!

Mark Sheppard’s Crow­ley is set to have a big­ger role this sea­son.

Misha Collins says Castiel has “got his mojo back”.
