Sea­son 12 Vuzu AMP (*103) 21:30 Sci-fi

TV Plus (South Africa) - - MOVIE MENU -

De­mon-killing broth­ers Sam and Dean Winch­ester (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ack­les) have lit­er­ally been to hell and back in sci-fi show Su­per­nat­u­ral (2005cur­rent). But in sea­son 12, they’re facing their big­gest chal­lenge yet: their mom Mary (Sa­man­tha Smith), who is back from the dead. “This show has al­ways been about fam­ily,” says pro­ducer An­drew Dabb, “es­pe­cially for Sam and Dean. They haven’t seen their mom in 30 years and with her back, the fam­ily dy­namic is given a shock­ing twist.”

Fans have only seen Mary once or twice, like in the very first episode when she turned into a de­mon and was burnt to death. She was re­turned to the boys in the last few sec­onds of sea­son 11 (2016) when Amara (Emily Swal­low), aka God’s sis­ter The Dark­ness, rec­on­ciled with her brother and re­leased Mary as a thank-you to Sam and Dean. “There are mixed emo­tions when the three rec­on­cile,” says Jared. “For Sam and Dean, Mary’s a stranger and they are strangers to her.” Jared adds, “There is vul­ner­a­bil­ity that comes with her. If some­thing hap­pens to her, the boys will have to look for her and vice versa. They have to bring her up to speed about their job too.”

Be­sides Mary, the broth­ers are also hunt­ing Lu­cifer (Mark Pel­le­grino), who’s hop­ing from body to body – episode 8 (24 Au­gust) sees Lu­cifer pos­sess the US pres­i­dent and he finds a mate to carry the son of Satan. De­mon hunters The Bri­tish Men Of Let­ters are also back af­ter a quick visit in sea­son 11 and the rule-bound hunters “see the broth­ers as loose can­nons and they want to stop Sam and Dean,” says Jensen.
