Supernatural Season 12 Trailer

The first substantive teaser clip for Supernatural Season 12 has hit, showcasing an intriguing new dynamic.

Revoking the (kind of) cliffhanger status from one of Season 11’s closing moments, we are treated to a bit of good news, since we see that Sam is still alive! – Albeit tortured, gagged and tied up in the back of a trunk. We also get to see the freshly-resurrected Mary Winchester in action, quickly picking up her Hunter legacy and kicking ass. However, the clear prime cut of this clip is the first offered glimpse of Rick Springfield’s version of Lucifer, who clearly isn’t letting go of his habit of tormenting poor Crowley! – At least he’s not making him lick the floors… yet.

Supernatural Season 12 Cast & Characters

We’ve got some fresh insight into the dangerous Mr. Ketch from the man behind the character himself David Hadyn-Jones. The actor gave some insight into his actor, saying:

He’sa true believer that monsters need to be eradicated from the planet. Even though we’re talking about evil and otherworldly beings, what I like about the show is it gets into this murky territory. At what cost do you get to be an eradicator or an assassin. Even James Bond has that murky dark side. What is it like to kill for a living?

As for what will be next for Mr. Ketch and his interactions with the Winchester brothers? Hadyn-Jones teased his character will be “pivotal” in the Winchester bros’ future, which doesn’t sound good, adding:

I have this lovely chess match with Dean, just me and him, mano y mano across the table. It was just as pure acting as acting gets, two men having this psychological chess match but also a sort of seduction of danger and wits at the same time.

Alicia: Variety reports that Kara Royster of Freeform’s murderously lascivious, long-running teen drama Pretty Little Liars has signed up for a Season 12 guest role as “Alicia.” While the character was raised by a witch, it seems that she has made the ultimate act of rebellion by becoming a full-blown monster-slaying Hunter along with her brother Max.

Aaron Bass: It’s been a few years, but Adam Rose will reprise his role as Aaron Bass. Fans may remember Aaron from back in the Season 8 episode “Everybody Hates Hitler” as the legacy to the Jewish paranormal-occult studying society the Judah Initiative. He was embroiled in a fight with a monstrous occult Neo-Nazi group the Thule Society; an ordeal for which he received help from the powerful Golem protector he inherited from his murdered grandfather. However, a Season 12 episode will reportedly up the ante in that long-dormant battle, this time thwarting the Thules’ plot to resurrect Hitler.

Lucifer: It appears that Season 12 will be giving us a version of the Devil himself who famously longed for “Jessie’s Girl,” when not playing a doctor on TV. Indeed, it was revealed at Comic-Con that the one and only Rick Springfield will play the latest meat suit iteration of Lucifer! While fans got attached to Mark Pellegrino’s version of the fallen angel Light Bringer himself, that was only just a meat suit of a desperate willing human. Season 11 saw the ultimate enemy temporarily make a home in the body of angel Castiel and now an 80’s rock legend nabs the role!

Mary Winchester: Thanks to a bizarre gesture from Amara, Season 12 will finally see Samantha Smith get a proper Supernatural run as the resurrected Mary Winchester. The character had numerous cameos over the course of the show’s 11 seasons as visions, shapeshifted impersonations, with even a younger version played by Amy Gumenick in time-travel episodes. However, the 1983-set memory from the show’s 2005 pilot episode showing Smith’s version of the Winchesters’ beloved matriarch raised to a bedroom ceiling and burned to death remains the brothers’ primary motivation for hunting. Now, we get to see the show’s traditional Mary as the formidable Hunter legacy that we’d later learn about over the years.

Russell Lemmons: Kadeem Hardison has been cast in Supernatural Season 12 as Russell Lemmons (via TVLine) “a man from Crowley’s past who has put a lot of thought into Lucifer’s future.” Lemmons is a music bigwig who has big plans for the latest Lucifer incarnation: rocker Vince Vincente (played by Rick Springfield). Do with this information what you will. Hardison is a veteran TV actor who has previously appeared in A Different World, Girlfriends, and House. He currently plays Craig, the secret agent dad, on Disney Channel’s K.C. Undercover.

Supernatural Season 12 Showrunner

Supernatural Season 12 will be happening on CW, but with a new showrunner. TV Line reports that current showrunner Jeremy Carver is stepping down to focus on Frequency (which was just given a series order). He’ll be replaced by the team of Robert Singer and Andrew Dabb.

Back in March, CW handed out renewal slips to Jane the Virgin (Season 3), Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (Season 2), The Flash (Season 3), iZombie (Season 3), Arrow (Season 5), DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (Season 2), The 100 (Season 4), The Vampire Diaries (Season 8), The Originals (Season 4), Reign (Season 4) and, of course, The CW’s longest running scripted show, Supernatural, which will spook audiences into Season 12.

Supernatural was created by Eric Kripke. It premiered on The WB network on September 13, 2005. The show stars Jared Padalecki as Sam Winchester and Jensen Ackles as Dean Winchester, two brothers who barely get to eat a home cooked meal because they are usually on the road chasing all manner of demons, ghosts and monsters.

CW head Mark Pedowitz must really love Supernatural. Normal people, they see a monster, and they run. He has reportedly said on many occasions that the show will continue as long as Ackles and Padalecki want to do it and they don’t look they’ll be stopping any time soon.

“Both Jared and Jensen are having a blast, and as long as they have a blast, it’s a great thing,” Pedowitz told reporters at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in January (via Variety).

“If they can keep delivering stories, and the numbers keep holding, and the guys want to do it, we’re going to try to keep going,” Pedowitz said at the TCA press tour. “I can’t tell you if there will be a season 12 yet. I can’t tell you if there will be a season 15 yet. I can’t tell you if it won’t outlast my tenure at the CW. My guess is it will outlast me.”
