It’s hard to believe we’re less than a week away from the premiere of Supernatural’s 11th season, but judging by some new footage dropped by The CW, the Winchesters haven’t lost a step in their old age.
The network has released a new trailer and clip from the season premiere, “Out of the Darkness, Into the Fire,” which focuses on the immediate aftermath of the evil badness the boys unleashed last season. All of the core cast looks worse for the wear, while Sam and Dean have apparently wandered into something that has killed a whole lot of people. The clip shows off an extended look at that discovery, but it’s the trailer that really steals the show.
Set to the folk tune “O, Death,” the trailer is positively haunting. It does a great job of establishing the tone for the season, and for a show on the back end of its decade-long run, it manages to feel unique. Though Supernatural has been through a few dry spells, they’ve kept the quality fairly high throughout — so here’s hoping Season 11 is a high point in the twilight of the Winchesters’ battle against the forces of evil.
