Calm down, Supernatural fans. Brothers disagree, brothers fight, and yes, brothers may even have different demon-hunting goals in life.
But those bumps in their relationship are a necessary part of Supernatural, insists the series' stars. "Conflict brings the story," Jensen Ackles told TVGuide.com during a recent set visit. "I think if everything was all happy-go-lucky in Supernatural-land, it wouldn't be as interesting."

Changes are afoot in Supernatural's eighth season. Led by new showrunner Jeremy Carver and airing on a new night, this season has also ushered in a new era of The CW series — one in which vampires can be trusted and demons could potentially be wiped out for good. But let's not kid ourselves — what we care about the most is how these changes affect the Winchester brothers.
Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean's (Jensen Ackles) relationship has always comprised the real heart of Supernatural, even spawning a rabid subset of fandom known as Wincest (a combination of "Winchester" and "incest"). But the new season finds the boys' polarized from one another, and while this isn't the first time the Winchesters have had to rebuild their relationship, have they changed too much to make the repairs?

"Sorry, Sam, you are well and truly alone."
That taunt at the end of last year's Supernatural finale sets up the psychological drama for Season 8, which kicks off Wednesday (9/8c, The CW). Sam and Dean Winchester (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) reunite in the premiere, but all is not as it once was. It's been a year since they've fought evil together, and each of the brothers have spent that time in very different, life-altering ways.

After seven seasons of literally going to hell and back, Supernatural star Jensen Ackles isn't too phased by his alter ego's trip to the world between the living and the dead in the Season 7 finale.
"I mean come on, it's like diet Hell," Ackles told the Comic-Con crowd on Sunday. "Much like the Hell situation, obviously Dean can't stick down there forever. He gets out. How he gets out...
Watch out, Supernatural fans! Someone new is about to steal Sam Winchester's heart.
The CW drama has cast Liane Balaban to recur as a new love interest for Sam (Jared Padalecki), TVLine reports.

Supernatural, Felicia Day and Jared Padalecki
It took eight seasons, but finally Felicia Day has come to Supernatural.
"It has always been one of those shows that I've wanted to be on," Day tells TVGuide.com.

It's such a cool thing that they just called me up and thought I was perfect for the part."

Could Castiel have survived Leviathans' mass exodus of his body, leaving only a soggy trenchcoat behind? On Friday's episode of Supernatural (9/8c, The CW), Castiel has returned... but if he's intact remains to be seen.
"He plays a substantial role in the episode," series executive producer Sera Gamble tells TVGuide.com, "but when he comes back, it's not in exactly the same state or state of mind when we last left him."
