Supernatural returns to Living for season 5

by Lisa McGarry

The fifth series of hit US drama Supernatural will have it’s UK premiere on Living. Already boasting a loyal UK fan base, the highly anticipated series chronicles the adventures of demon hunters Sam and Dean Winchester as they journey through small town America in a bid to rid the world of demonic forces.

Twenty-six years ago, Sam (Jared Padalecki- Gilmore Girls, Friday the 13th) and Dean (Jensen Ackles – Smallville, My Bloody Valentine 3D) Winchester lost their mother to a mysterious and demonic paranormal force. From then on, their father raised them to be soldiers, teaching them about the numerous forms of evil that exists within the darkest corners and on the back roads of America. Their father also taught them how to kill the unearthly life forms. Now, the Winchester brothers crisscross the lonely and mysterious back roads of the country in their ’67 Chevy Impala hunting down every evil supernatural force they encounter along the way.

The forth season of the paranormal drama ended on a series defining high as Sam unwittingly opened the gates of hell and freed Lucifer (Mark Pellegrino – Lost). Now alongside his older brother Dean, the demon-hunting Winchester boys must face their toughest battle yet, the apocalypse.

Series five kicks off with an explosive double bill, as the brothers prepare for the inevitable; meeting the devil face to face. But at the very moment, Sam and Dean are suddenly transported onto an incredibly turbulent flight. Could this mysterious outcome be the work of angels? Sam and Dean’s devil dodging may have given them more time to continue their ultimate fight, but, in order to send the definitive bad-boy back into the depths of hell, the Winchesters must find the sword of Michelangelo before Lucifer and his cohorts beat them to it.

In the second part of Living’s Supernatural double bill, God has gone missing and with Lucifer lapping up his new found freedom, it’s up to the fallen-angel Castiel (Misha Collins – 24, Nip Tuck) to search for the absent divinity. In a small Colorado town, Sam and Dean witness a chilling reality, the arrival of the first horseman of the Apocalypse.

The new season comes to LIVING with a double bill on Wednesday 10th February 2010 at 9pm (and Wednesdays at 9pm thereafter).
