‘Supernatural’ season 8 photos: Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki back in action

There’s the car, and there is Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki. All is right in the world of “Supernatural.” There is something comforting in the familiar, and we are thrilled that new showrunner is incorporating a little bit of that into the show’s eighth season, but at the same time he is putting Sam and Dean through something that is completely foreign and rather exciting.

Unfortunately, the newly-released images from the October 3 premiere do not really show off too much of Dean in purgatory, and nor do they tell us the tale of just what is going to happen with the two back in the present day working with Kevin (who is also pictured here). The structure of this season will be interesting, with Carver bringing us back and forth between the past and the present to show us better what the two Winchester brothers learned during their time apart.

Even though there are no photos here showing off any additional guest stars, we know that Misha Collins is contracted to be a part of at least eight installments this year; meanwhile, there will be some other returning faces including DJ Qualls, the aforementioned Kevin, and a few that will remain a mystery for the time being. There are also going to be all sorts of new faces turning up whether it be a vampire, a potential love interest, and some potential villains.

What do you think about some of these photos, and are you just glad to see Sam and Dean back soon doing what they do best? If you want to find out some more information on the mysterious new character known as Naomi, you can do so by heading on over to the link here.
