  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Supernatural is an incredibly Angst-heavy show based around a Monster of the Week structure topped off with an over-reaching arc, while simultaneously retaining humor through various means of Leaning on the Fourth Wall. It features Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki), two brothers who hunt creatures based on Urban Legends, Classical Mythology and Judeo-Christian theology. The first season featured the brothers searching for their missing father, but, for the most part, the series features them Walking the Earth as they travel from town to town in search of supernatural problems to solve. It uses a diverse score of classic rock songs that feature heavily throughout, to encapsulate the gritty rock-and-roll life they lead, and features Dean's 1967 Chevy Impala as almost a third character.

It originally aired on The WB, but moved to The CW after the The WB folded.

Famous for three main things:

  1. The ridiculously attractive cast.
  2. The sheer amount of Mood Whiplash it has.
  3. How it raised torturing its two leads (emotionally and physically) to a fetishistic art-form.

A Spin-Off Web Original named Ghostfacers, centered around a pair of minor recurring characters from the series, was launched during Season Five, in conjunction with the show's 100th episode. Madhouse has recently begun making an anime adaptation of this show. You can look at the animation in action in this trailer. The American release of the first season of the anime came out on July 26, 2011.

The show itself is currently[when?] preparing to air its eighth of the originally planned five seasons, with former writer of the show Jeremy Carver taking over as showrunner from executive producer Sera Gamble, who has been running the show since creator Eric Kripke stepped down as showrunner at the end of Season 5.

There is an in-progress Recap page here.

Not to be confused with the 1977 BBC series of the same name.
