It seems like it was just yesterday that season 5 of the hit CW Network/Warner Bros series, Supernatural was about to premiere and Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki) Winchester along with rogue angel Castiel (Misha Collins) and good friend Bobby Singer (Jim Beaver) were headed for the dangerous and daunting task of stopping the apocalypse from happening. Now, this coming Friday the 24th of September, brings the premiere of season 6, which takes the Winchester brothers on a whole new adventure ride for their lives. Eclipse Magazine will be sharing a lot of coverage taken at the 2010 San Diego Comic Con with readers as a lead into the Supernatural 6th season premiere on Friday, September 24th at 9 PM EST.
With this premiere of Supernatural season 6 just days away, now is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of the release of Supernatural: The Complete Season 5 on DVD and catch up on or relive the events of season 5 as the two brothers and one rogue angel face off against all the might of Lucifer and his army. As the Apocalypse grows closer, threatening to turn Earth into a battlefield soaked with human blood, Sam, Dean and Castiel struggle against daunting odds while searching for the one ally that might be strong enough to defeat Lucifer: God. Throughout season 5 of Supernatural, new foes arise, including the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Old friends depart, consumed by the fearsome wrath of Hell. Through it all, demons and angels alike, who warn that each brother has a special and terrible role to play in the coming devastation, target the Winchesters. Season five follows Sam and Dean on their most terrifying journey yet, as they race against time to find a way to stop the apocalypse without having their bond as brothers used as weapon of mass destruction on all mankind.
