Supernatural, which was premiered in 2005, tells the story of Sam and Dean Winchester, two brothers who lost their mother when they were young and whose father raised them to go into the family business. That business? Saving people and hunting things. For years, Supernatural fans have watched Sam and Dean battle everything to set out to eliminate monsters, demons and all other supernatural entities that exist on Earth.
Along the way, the series gained a loyal following that helped it to become the longest-running sci-fiction series in the history of American broadcast television.
The series, which first aired in 2005, was created by Eric Kripke and is executive produced by Robert Singer, Andrew Dabb, Phil Sgriccia, Jeremy Carver, Eugenie Ross-Leming, and Brad Buckner.
