Next week's Supernatural episode brings back Castiel, Anna and one very cool angel power: time travel. Unlike season 4's "In the Beginning," this time both Sam and Dean are traveling back in time to protect Mary and John from an assassination plot to prevent the boys from ever being born. After coming back from the long winter break, Supernatural has been stuck in stand alone episodes about a psychiatric hospital and body swapping, so it's good to see the show getting back to the on-going mythology. It also means we'll get to see young John and young Mary again, a few years after the events of "In the Beginning." Check out these two new clips featuring the boys transporting back in time and meeting their young parents. Source & Previews
Fans of "Supernatural" will get to see Sam and Dean's parents again in the next episode. The angels send Anna back in time to kill John and Mary Winchester before they can conceive Sam knowing that if Sam was never born then Lucifer won't be able to use him as his vessel. Castiel sends Sam and Dean back to 1978 so they can stop Anna, and the two brothers are reunited with their parents. Mary recognizes Dean as a hunter since he visited her in the past once before but tries to keep the truth from John. Although the role of John Winchester was portrayed by Jeffrey Dean Morgan in the pilot and few episodes after, he would be filled by Matthew Cohen in this one. Meanwhile, the role of Mary is filled by Amy Gumenick who, like Cohen, is back after playing the character in a 2008 episode "In the Beginning". "Back to the Future II" will air on February 4.

Want more Supernatural comedy? Tonight's episode should do the trick. Colton James, who is known for his appearance in The Lost World: Jurassic Park as well as his role of T-Bone on 7th Heaven, guest stars as a teenage nerd named Gary who performs a body-switching spell and changes bodies with Sam in "Swap Meat." Like movies with similar themes, the 12th episode of Supernatural's fifth season finds Gary taking advantage of his "new look" as he starts to live the life he's always wanted. And like most geeky teenagers would do, the first thing Gary does is get drunk on booze and women. Poor Sam, on the other hand, is trapped in Gary's gawky body struggling to deal with intrusive parents and high school issues. Source Here

It looks like Sam and Dean aren't the only stars of Supernatural. Ed Zeddmore and Harry Spangler, the stars of Ghostfacers, will soon take center stage as they appear in their own show. The spin-off, however, comes in the form of a web series which will initially run as 10 three-minute episodes on The CW website, according to Variety. Supernatural fans have come to know Ed and Harry as the boys from the website Hell Hound's Lair. Both are self proclaimed "professional" paranormal investigators who appear on their so-called reality TV series Ghost Ghostfacers, which was featured in the episodes "Hell House," "Ghostfacers," and "It's A Terrible Life." The Supernatural spin-off will follow the Ghostfacers as they investigate haunted occurences, shot documentary-style. CSI: NY's A.J. Buckley and Travis Wester will reprise their roles as the Ghostfacers, and will also be writing the webisodes. Brittany Ishibashi (E-Ring) and Austin Basis (Life Unexpected) round out the Ghostfacers team. "It felt like the nature and style of what they do with their show-within-a-show would be fun to see in new media," said Wonderland TV topper Peter Johnson. "It's a fun, subversive way to allow these characters to play in the margins." Though production is ongoing in Los Angeles, a premiere date has yet to be announced. According to Variety, the first installment revolves around a theater haunted by the specter of a starlet, played by Nip/Tuck's Kelly Carlson. Eric Kripke will serve as executive producer with Peter Johnson, Jeff Grosvenor and Phil Sgriccia. Source Here
It hasn't exactly been easy for Supernatural fans to mull over the fact that they have to bid farewell to Sam and Dean eventually. As you may have heard, series creator Eric Kripke's contract ends after the fifth season, and has, over the years, planned for the show to wrap up at the end of this season. But it's also no secret that Kripke has recently shown interest in continuing the story of the Winchester brothers and that Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles already have contracts for a sixth season. Though nothing official has been made by The CW, Cinemaspy is reporting that Supernatural has been renewed for another season. While seeing Sam and Dean for another season is good news, some fans feel like the show should go out with a bang as it concludes with Sam and Dean confronting the Devil in a final showdown this season. Meanwhile, Kripke isn't necessarily out of ideas. However, it's a little hard to imagine what season 6 would look like, if and when the network decides to pick up Supernatural for one more year. Will it be an entirely new chapter for the Winchester brothers, as Kripke previously hinted? Or will it be an extension of the apocalypse storyline? Or perhaps the aftermath of Lucifer's defeat? Again, nothing's official yet. Source Here
The guest star bonanza for Supernatural continues with two actors who are very well known to sci-fi fans. One will be a new guest star while the other is a return appearance for a memorable Supernatural character we've already seen. SPOILER WARNING: This article contains info about upcoming episodes of Supernatural. First, Mark Sheppard announced via Twitter that he'll be returning as Crowley, the mysterious Crossroads Demon who wanted to help the Winchesters kill Lucifer. You'll also recognize Sheppard from Battlestar Galactica, Dollhouse, 24 and upcoming episodes of Leverage and Chuck. In other words, as I said the first time he was on Supernatural, getting Mark Sheppard is like cementing your place in the land of TV awesomeness. In other Supernatural casting news, TV Guide Magazine reports that Stargate actor Michael Shanks will soon show up on Supernatural for his own guest role. Shanks will play Rico, a man in a local militia dedicated to a cause. Hopefully that cause is stopping the Apocalypse. Shanks is another big guest star in the world of sci-fi and he'll soon be seen as Hawkman on Smallville. With these two on board for the second half of season 5, Supernatural is certainly upping its pedigree of sci-fi guest stars. Source Here
Supernatural has done a Halloween episode and a Christmas episode, but now, in its fifth season, it's going to do a Valentine's Day episode. On February 11, the holiday single people love to hate is going to get the Supernatural twist. Cupid will be making an appearance and he's going to wreck some havoc. Throw in some angel action (Castiel is in it - yeay!) and you've got all the makings of a lovely Valentine's Day. Oh yeah, and a Horseman is riding into town as well. That's probably going to put a serious damper on the festivities. Check out several promo photos and a synopsis below. To Read More Click Here .
If the first clip from the upcoming Supernatural episode "Swap Meat" that we already posted didn't get you excited, maybe two more clips will. The episode features a nerdy teenage boy swapping bodies with Sam, and in these clips, we get to see the new Sam out and about. In the first clip, fake Sam is in a bar, enjoying an adult beverage with some adult company. Based on this clip, I can imagine Jared Padalecki had more fun with this than with any other Supernatural episode. To Read More Click Here .
