Early this year, creators and showrunners have started the production of Supernatural Season 12. With the new key art for Season 12, showrunner Andrew Dabb recently dropped quite a big bombshell, confirming that the upcoming chapter of the series will highlight a major part of Castiel’s life (at a personal level). He also hinted towards a Castiel Connection with Mary in Season 12.  How will things turn out between these two?

Misha Collins’ Castiel aka Cas has been a key character in the show. He is a powerful angel of the Lord responsible for bringing Dean Winchester back from Hell. Castiel frequently helps him and his brother Sam in their combats with different demons and angels along the way. During his travels with the Winchesters, Castiel has also developed friendships with both men. As an angel, he is blessed with some supernatural abilities, including the ability to kill demons. On the other hand, Mary Winchester (Samantha Smith/Amy Gumenick) is a retired hunter. She is also the daughter of Samuel and Deanna Campbell, the wife of John Winchester and the mother of Dean and Sam Winchester. Mary was killed by the demon Azazel exactly six months after Sam was born.

Talking to TV Line, Andrew Dabb revealed Supernatural Season 12 will dig deeper into Castiel’s past, and Mary will be a part of it.  How will this connection come into existence?  The connection will be established through Sam and Dean. However, the connection won’t be a romantic one. According to Dabb, “They have a lot in common. They’re both strangers in a strange land, in a way.” Furthermore, the plot of Supernatural Season 12 will show Cas holding himself responsible for Lucifer getting out of the cage.

The fantasy horror television series is going to step into its 12th season soon. After the thumping success of Supernatural Season 11, the channel (The CW) picked up the show for a new season renewal on March 11, 2016. On September 13, a new poster for the approaching season of the supernatural series has been revealed by The CW.

Created by Erik Kripke, Supernatural follows the story of two brothers who succeed their father as Hunter. These hunters fight different kinds of evil supernatural beings  including monsters, demons and Gods.
