It seems that Supernatural Season 12 is heading to a family reunion. Rumors of dealing with mother issues plague the series when it hits back on the small screen on Oct. 13 over at The CW.
With the season finale of Supernatural Season 11, more questions were revealed rather than explanations. This came about when a woman who identifies herself as Lady Antonia Bevell of the London chapter of the Men of Letters tells Sam Winchester that the Men of Letters have sent her to bring him in for punishment for his actions and fires her gun, apparently at Sam, as he tries to talk her down. While all of these were taking place, Sam’s brother, Dean, is seen making his way through the woods, where he finds his resurrected mother.
Two cliffhangers that needed answers: Will Sam survive? Will Dean be able to get his questions answered now that mother is back?
CW president Mark Pedowitz stated that he has no intention of the current season being the last. Thus, Supernatural Season 12 will surely be another run to answer these questions as it has been confirmed that the show has been renewed for another run.
It would seem that the show will be in for a major throwback as the Winchester brothers get tangled on different situations. Dean will seem to make up for lost time with his mother in order to make amends with his father. While Sam will have to make his way out of the Men of Letters in order to get back with his brother on the road again.
For Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester), he would want the show to go back to its original format of him together with Jared Padalecki (San Winchester) hunting the demons of the week. He suggests that going back to how the series started would be fun, but leaves the decision for CW to make it happen.
“Purgatory, I thought, was a really, really cool part of the story. That might be cool to maybe go revisit. I’d also like to see more of a hunter network. I’m a big fan of the original format of the show, the monster-of-the-week kind of thing. [But] I don’t know how we necessarily get back to that with everything that’s happened,” Ackles said.
However, he explains that he also likes the format of the story in Season 11. Having his encounter with his mother in the season finale will add fumes of excitement to its loyal followers. Being reunited with his mother will have more revelations in Supernatural Season 12, which is set to start filming Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Jared Padalecki explained that having that mother angle for next season would be a great storyline to explore as well. He added that having the Winchester’s mother back is a big mystery since they were both young when she passed away. Padalecki noted that Supernatural Season 12 will have some good answers of how the brothers started their journey down the road fighting demons.
“Not as much as Dean does, because Sam was so young [when she died],” Padalecki tells TVLine. “Sam would like to get some answers he only knows a little bit. I think a part of Sam is very curious. He’s a thinker, he’s an intellect. Part of him wants to have some sort of closure with his father, with his mother. Sam is one of these interesting people who feels the void, even if he didn’t ever know it. They say, ‘If you don’t know something, you don’t know what you’re going to miss.’ But I think Sam knows what he’s missing.”
Supernatural will hit the small screen on Oct. 13 at 9/8c on The CW.
