Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2005.
For many people out there, it’s just another day. For fans of the little series that could a.k.a. Supernatural, this day isÂ everything.
Back then, the Eric Kripke-creationÂ debuted on the WB after Gilmore Girls. The one thing those two showsÂ had in common was actor Jared Padalecki, who jumped from playing Dean Forester (yes, his character’s name was Dean) to Sam Winchester, the youngest son of John Winchester. Sam rebelled against the dangerous family business in favor of a normal Stanford-educated existence. He was the black sheep simply because he didn’t want to hunt things that go bump in the night. He wanted to study law, fall in love with a girl, and live a white picket fence life. Of course, that was never going to happen. He was about to learn he couldn’t shake the supernatural. It had a firm hold on him.
Enter his older brother, Jensen Ackles’ Dean Winchester. He wasÂ the bad boy hunter, who loved cars, women, and couldn’t utter a sentence without saying something appropriately inappropriate or sarcastic. He committed credit card fraud, hustled for money, and worshiped his father, classic rock, and his black ’67 Chevy Impala, not necessarily in that order.Â One night he showed up at Stanford looking for his little brother. Needed him to go on a mission. Their father was missing. Dean didn’t want to go after him on his own. Sure, Dean may have started out the badass hard ass hunter. There was so much more to himÂ than he let on.
Millions of viewers fell in love with the Winchester boys and their story. Who would have known thatÂ this was going to be one of those shows that tends to take over one’s life. It’s more than an amazing series. It’s grown into a family. Sometimes dysfunctional, but always a family.
Yes, Sept. 13, 2005 introduced the world to a couple of hot demon-and-monster-hunting siblings. ElevenÂ years later, the saga continues to grow, inspire and impress. So it’s only natural to honor the day it all began.
From here on out, Sept. 13 is Supernatural Day, a day that serves to celebrate the fans, the show and the cast and crew, who are all absolute rock stars in every way.
What it’s all about
Hunters, demons, angels, vampires, ghosts, and all other supernatural creatures will unite with millions of fans onÂ September 13Â to celebrate 12 years of the Winchester Brothersâ€™ journey onÂ Supernatural.Â Â September 13Â is already celebrated by fans as it is the official dateÂ SupernaturalÂ aired over a decade ago. The day will honor the Winchester brothers and their motto: Saving people, hunting things – the family business.Â SupernaturalÂ would not be the phenomenon it is today without its biggest supporters: the fans. Fans will have the opportunity to show their ultimateÂ SupernaturalÂ pride.
What the celebration looks like
- The official Twitter handle for Supernatural has already been busy drumming up the hype with a favorite moments countdown.
- It’s time for fans to counter with their own favorite moments. Spread the love for the show via social media.
- Just how devoted a fan are you? Well, it’s time to for show and tell. Do you cosplay Supernatural? Have you created any videos? How about any other fan art? Once again, spread the love. Show the world what you got.
- Share images of “Possessed and Obsessed” tattoos on arms
- And in turn, the CW will be showing their appreciation with retweets, reposts and Instagram pics featuring “Possessed and Obsessed” tattoos
- And because this is a pretty interactive community, don’t be surprised if some of the cast and crew get in on the social media action. They’ll be following the hashtag — #SupernaturalDay.
- Word in the hunters’ network is that there might be a special message that materializes from the show today
- Hot Topic is the headquarters for Supernatural fans. In fact, it’s the only place fans can acquire a Supernatural Day limited edition t-shirt.
It’s good to be a Supernatural fan so it’s time to celebrate the show that begat the Winchesters, their angel friend, Cas, the King of Hell known as a Crowley, and a ton of characters that we’ve loved (and most probably lost) over the years.
Supernatural has transcended the small screen and developed into a phenomenon that thrives in its countless conventions and, more importantly, it inspires its fans, cast and crew to be creative, charitable and to spread the love for the show.
Misha Collins recently said in EW’s cover shoot video, he wasn’t totally surprised they won the magazine’s very first Cover Battle. “The Supernatural fandom is so amazing, we seem to win things that we have no business winning.”
Happy Supernatural Day! And don’t forget. Season 12 roars back onto Thursdays starting Oct. 13 at 9/8c on the CW. The hellatus ends in one month, people!
