Unusually, Supernatural changes its opening credits each season. There are often one or two episodes per season that will also have their own unique titles.

Season One

The first season's title card was fairly simple, the word "Supernatural" zoomed in and then out of the screen. It mimics the jerky movements of Supernatural's ghost's flickering. An alternative, but not used title sequence was produced and published on the Season 1 DVD as a special feature. Two different versions of the title sequence can be watched here.

Season Two

This title card features the word "Supernatural" appearing out of bursting flames with the letter "A" in the form of a pentagram.


Season Three

First, the "Key of Solomon" symbol appears followed by "Supernatural" amidst what look like thunderclouds, or possibly the iconic demonic "black clouds".

The title card is preceded by a version of the old CBS Special Presentation Indent. Sleigh bells are heard and the a Christmas ornament explodes on the screen and then the episode's title appears.

Season Four

This season begins with a bunch of wings flapping followed by the sound of someone screaming and then "Supernatural".

4.05 Monster Movie

This episode's title card was designed to fit the look of the old school black and white films from the early to mid-1900s.

4.18 The Monster At The End Of This Book

The title card of 4.18 The Monster At The End Of This Book featured the artwork from the covers of the "Supernatural" books written by Chuck Shurley.


4.22 Lucifer Rising

The end card is a negative of the usual credit card. In other words, the color of the background is white rather than the usual black.

Season Five

As always, "Supernatural" appears on the screen, but this time with a drop of blood dispersing in the background, accompanied by the sound of a heart beat, angels whispering, and a high pitch sound.

5.08 Changing Channels

In 5.08 Changing Channels the Supernatural Sitcom Theme Song plays over opening credits which mimic those of 80s sitcom like Full House.

Season Six

A pane of glass shatters, revealing the title "Supernatural"

6.09 Clap Your Hands If You Believe

In 6.09 Clap Your Hands If You Believe, the opening credits to the episode are an homage to the 1990s series The X-Files, using similar music and images. The final text “The Truth is in There” is a twist on the X-Files catchphrase “The Truth Is Out There”. The sequence bears a few similarities to the unused title sequences found as an Easter egg on the season one DVDs.

6.18 Frontierland

The opening titles are a homage to the 1960s Western series Bonanza. See its opening titles here. The music played during the credits is somewhat similar to Ennio Morricone's "The Ecstasy of Gold," a piece he wrote for the Clint Eastwood movie "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly." Watch the scene here.

Season Seven

Black text on a white background. The word "Supernatural" appears out of thick black explosion of mist and is dripping black fluid like ectoplasm or ink.
