The CW isn’t where you’d expect to find a show with quality tone, characterization and mytharc to match that of The X-Files; and yet, Supernatural is proof that it’s possible.

Supernatural follows the path of two brothers, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles). The Winchesters were an ordinary young family from Kansas before their mother was killed horrifically - burning up, pinned to the ceiling of Sam’s nursery by a supernatural force - when Sam was just a baby. From then, their lives changed.

Their father John Winchester (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), driven by vengeance, made it his mission to hunt down the demon that killed his wife, in the process raising his sons “like warriors”, to hunt down and destroy supernatural evil.

2005 is where the story picks up again, with the quest of the past 20 years coming to a head when Sam starts manifesting psychic abilities.

Episode by episode, we witness Sam and Dean traveling the backroads of America in their 1967 black Chevy Impala, each week investigating and hunting down every demon, monster, ghost, and urban legend they can find, to a soundtrack of classic rock.

The creators of Supernatural take their inspiration from the horror film genre, and each episode harks back to horror favorites with tangible delight on the creators’ (and horror fan’s) part, as well as creating an atmosphere of genuine terror.

Supernatural’s wry quirkiness, true horror, dynamic buddy duo (with the added bonus of family drama) and riveting mytharc gained it an instant cult following within months of its pilot episode. It takes the supernatural TV genre popularized by Buffy to the next level, and leaves shows like Ghost Whisperer and Medium in its dust.

Its quality is no surprise with the production team behind it including people from TV, film and comics; the team includes Kim Manners, David Nutter & John Shiban (The X-Files); Ben Edlund (Angel, Firefly); McG (Charlie’s Angels); Peter Johnson (Marvel Comics) and Daniel Knauf (Carnivale) to name only a few.

Official comic books have been released; Supernatural fan conventions are being held; and the fandom is thriving with its own wiki, podcasts, and much more.
