The latest teaser for “Supernatural” season 8 is hardly a teaser at all; but at the same time, you have to admit that it is definitely entertaining to watch.
In the video below, you can see series stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles send out a massive “thank-you” to their fans on Facebook, who recently got them to the 10 million follower plateau. When you consider that this is more that five times the show’s average total viewership, it is surprising. However, you have to remember everything from DVR numbers to the show’s massive international fan base when you consider how this show has made it to such a benchmark. There are so many reasons why The CW is thrilled with this, and why it has made it eight seasons in an era when most drama series are lucky to even make it to six.
Of course, we would be remiss to not mention the random cameo in here from DJ Qualls, who is going to be returning to the show this season after making a stint in season 7. There are going to be plenty of other returning characters this time around (including Kevin and Misha Collins’ Castiel), but we do not see them as a part of this video. Thankfully, seeing them multiple times moving forward should more than make up for it. Given that they are the only two actors two appear in every episode of this show, it only seems appropriate to have Ackles and Padalecki be the two stars front and center here.
Oh, and we should also mention someone getting punched in the face.
