Supernatural's Season 8 Promo Reunites Sam and Dean (VIDEO)

Prepare to lose your poop, guys, because the first real promo for Supernatural's eighth season just hit the internet! When we last saw Sam and Dean Winchester, Sam was alone with a bunch of dead Leviathans and Dean and Castiel were shipped off to Purgatory where the doggies don't play nice.

But as we learned at Comic-Con, the bros won't be apart for too long, and their year apart will unfold in a series of flashbacks. Let's get right to the man-hugging and see what the hunky hunters will be up against in Season 8.

I think I speak for us all when I say the biggest revelation in this trailer is... KEVIN GOT A HAIRCUT! OH MAN! But also that thing about maybe being able to close the gates of Hell forever sounds pretty important, too.

Don't forget, Season 8 is getting revitalized with the promotion of former Supernatural writer Jeremy Carver to showrunner, so hopefully that means we'll be far away from another "Season 7, Time For a Wedding!" and moving more toward episodes like "Changing Channels," which Carver wrote. I know I've gotten excited for every season of Supernatural since Season 5 (creator Eric Kripke's last) and have been pretty disappointed, but this time it's going to be different, right? RIGHT? Please, someone tell me I'm right.

Sam's hair seriously needs a haircut. I swear everytime I watch an ep in S5-S7, his hair and his sideburns are really distracting.

Yes, he does. He looks ridiculous like that. :X

Even though it's probably not relevant to the current storyline but they seriously need to get Adam out of the cage. This has been nagging at me ever since Appointment in Samarra.

Season 7 was sooooooo bad. I still haven't decided if I'll give season 8 a shot.

Well, ive seen S07. And without the story arc, it was sort of great. Sam and his meltdown was wonderfully done, it was great to see Castiel again (and it was hilarious to see him crazy with his bees, boardgames, organic sandwich making ... ).



Bobby and his "death": well, thats something different. It was interesting to see the world from beyond the veil for a while and "Bobby in the coma" episode was great, but as it happens, this storyline has the same problem as SPN: Bobby should have died, his character from S01-05 would have chosen to die and he would not posses someone to... you know, kill someone else.



Felicia Day really needs to come back next season, her episode was funny, her character hilarious and those references... oh those references. More please... Geek queen at her best imho.



Ill definitely watch S08 and beyond (its not likely that they would piss me that much next year and I really dont expect anything like Andromeda to happen). And maybe, well get something grand as the story arc... or not. Just our characters killing monsters and living in the screwed up world. That would be enough for me. With Cas if possible.

Really looking forward to the next season. Season 7 was not as good as the show is able and has been able to achieve but I still enjoyed it. I'm interested in what Jeremy Carver has planned for the series; from what I've heard story-wise so far it's very promising, and this promo has just put my excitement up to 11 xD



I'm hoping there'll be more Cas in the season(s) to come. Glad that Crowley will now be more in the forefront as he's another amazing character.

I'm guessing that the "closing of Hell's doors forever" conclusion will be saved for the last [10th? maybe] season but in the meantime I think they've got lots of good plot/storyline available.



Supernatural is and has been my favourite show on TV. Counting down to October 3!

Hey, as long as we're finally rid of Leviathans for good, I'm happy! Besides, I can't imagine my TV without my Winchester boys. I will be loyal, no matter what! But I'm loving the concept for this season!

Well, thats probably not going to happen. They are probably not going to eat us all, but they didnt all disappear in the finale, did they? So, I have the feeling that its gonna be with cleaner from now on.

Dammit... I told myself after season seven that I wasn't going to be tuning in for season eight. I mean, shitty Big Bads, horribly written episodes and Cas. It all culminated in the worst season since six. Not that I hate Sera Gamble, not at all. She was left with making something better than the previous five seasons and had to choose between capitulating to the fangirls or holding to artistic integrity. I certainly wouldn't have wanted to be in her shoes. But fuck... That trailer actually makes the new season look like it'd be worth watching. It just makes me wonder if the third season of Being Human will be any good, now that Carver left it to pick up the pieces of SPN. Now I don't know what to do. Stay firm in giving up on the show or give season eight a chance.

for me as a fan..I have some troubles watching seasons 1-3 because imo seasons 4-5 were when the show hit it's peek. I was excited for season 6 because I was dissapointed with Swan Song. I looked forward to Season 7 because I loved the ending of Season 6. I'm watching Season 8 because Jeremy Carver's back and in charge, and ready for a huge rise in quality over Season 7...

Pfft. I got over Supernatural after Season 3. Continued to watch through Season 5 and though I was disappointed in Seasons 4 and 5 as a whole, it had a good ending. Watched the first few episodes of Season 6 but for me, the show finished long, long ago.

to each is own...but i must disagree. Season 4 has been my favorite overall season. It began and ended perfectly.

I loved season 4, but 5 is my favorite. Then the show went downhill fast.

Season 5 is my favorite season too! *High-five*

You probably didnt see Andromeda and its downhill slide after show runner change. Compare to that, SPN is still the greatest show out there.

I'm a big fan of Supernatural but let's face it season 6 wasn't that great and 7 had the worst story arc with the Leviathans. I'm going to give season 8 a shot mostly because of Jeremy Carver being the showrunner, hopefully I won't be bored.

Did you like this trailer.I personally loved season 6 and 7:))

Supernatural ended with 5x22. S06 and 07 are not the same show. It tries to be, the universe is the same, but it feels like the spin-off. And as the spin-offs go, its not that bad. Im watching season 07 just now and well, I miss good old days with demons and stuff. And Leviathans seem ... crappy. Like Eve last year.

This season looks brilliant dont you agree. Its more like the next chapter rather than a spin off!!
Reply

Next chapter of the spin off maybe.... but, what do we know. 7x01 airs in october, well see how it the season plays out... but the story arc ended in 5x22. That wont change in 7x01. Of course, they can alway resurrect Lucifer and restart the whole Apocalypse thing :)



But I have to say, that some standalone episodes are bloody brilliant (The French Mistake for example). So its still fun. I just miss Castiel and better story arc.

Everything since the season 5 finale sucked. I dropped it after watching a few season 7 episodes (and skipped half of season 6) and I wish I could get those hours of my life back. So I'm here to ask: is the ending of season 7 worth watching? 'Cause it's the Winchester brothers after all and the trailer made me completely nostalgic - is someone here who is not an undemanding fangirl/fanboy and can answer my question?

In season 7 their are some really good episodes like, Deaths Door, Repo Man, Reading is Fundamental etc. There are some good episodes in season 6 too if you want me to tell you. Im curious you didnt like Season 7 premiere. If you liked this trailer and you want to watch season 8 den yes i recommend dat u watch d finale not cause its d best episode but so u will understand. I personally loved season 6 and 7. I hope this is not a fanboy answer.

The last two or three episodes of Season 7 have their moments, but I'm afraid it's just that - moments. The finale itself isn't anything to write home about (although it does end with Dean and Cas in a curious situation), and the resolution of Leviathan's plot isn't that much better than the whole sloppy arc regarding them.



Seeing as you skipped half of season 6, I find it difficult to believe that you wouldn't find the remainder of season 7 even worse. You may want to see the final minutes of the last episode to have a rough idea for the beginning of Season 8.

oK, thanks you guys. No fanboy answers at all! :D

I think everyone should not jump the gun on that. They've shown you the main arc of this season, but whose to say they'd actually devote time to it. As far as I've heard they said they're going back to their one episdoers with just monsters. So hold your breath, don't hold your breath! And lastly what the hell is up with Sam's hair? Seriously if Dean's character can manage to get a freaking haircut in purgatory, Sam remaining on earth and even Kevin getting one, he should've had the time for it. I mean it looks great at comic cons where he's blowing his hair for us fans but in the show - not!

In Comic Con -Jeremy Carver Stated that he has a plot that suppose to reach to Season 10 - So unless the rating becomes really low or the main actors dont wont to do this anymore I don't think season 8 is the final Season

It gave us seven amazzing seasons and it looks like they will give us an 8th. Why stop on of the best shows ever. The second it startts getting poor stop it until den continue.:))

Oh please don't let this be the final season, I love Supernatural I have every season on disc can't wait for season 7 to come out on disc. On Wikipedia it said that they have good story ideas to last up to the season 10 finale.

Wouldn't the new season now be set in the year 2014? After all Sam was in Hell for a year before he reunited with Dean. Now Dean's been in Purgatory for a year as well. About the only sensible thing would be Kevin's new haircut. Maybe they let him go for the more mature look since actor Osric Chau is really 26 years old. It was either that or make his hair much longer with a scraggly goatee after being imprisoned by the demons for so long.

The less Leviathan mentions, the better. Hopefully there won't be too many callbacks to the previous season. I'm not overly happy to see the whole prophet and the God's tablets arc being continued, but maybe Carver can handle things in a better way. He never really disappointed as a writer.



Also, Tim, I can't fully agree with you. Some Supernatural fans just tend to look down at everything that had happened ever since Kripke left the helm (the fact that topping Season 5 might be nigh impossible doesn't help things). While I do consider Season 7 a disaster with a few saving graces, Season 6 had its fair share of ups along with the downs.

7 seasons of brilliance thats my opinion.

Sounds like they are gearing up for this to be the end, Closing the gates of hell forever and banishing demons. Of course that would still leave every other creature and spirit but it sounds like they are planning for a series end. It is an interesting storyline though, I wonder what Meg will do since she is not on Crowely's side but sure does not want to be locked in hell.

yeah i doubt it. jeremy Carver revealed at comic con his plan for a story arc that would last until the end of Season 10. The two leads also extended their contracts for another two seasons.



& with the move to Wednesday nights from Fridays, it may be fair to assume The CW wants to give Supernatural the Smallville treatment.



When SPN ends, there will be no more scripted shows on The CW that started on The WB

I rather enjoyed the premise of the Leviathan story, but it could have been better written perhaps. I certainly look forward to the new season, it looks like it just might be AWESOME!

Aaaand this kinda sounds like a retread of Season 4/Season 6's "how did you get out of hell?". I hope I'm wrong 'cause the rest of the promo doesn't look too bad.
