This television drama is about the two Winchester brothers, Sam and Dean, who were raised by their father, John, to hunt and kill all things that go "bump in the night" after his wife, Mary, was murdered by an evil supernatural being when the boys were young. 22 years later the brothers set out on a journey, fighting evil along the way, to find their recently missing father who, when they finally meet up with, reveals he knows what killed their mother, a demon, and has found a way to track and kill it. Meanwhile, Sam starts to develop frightening abilities that include death visions, visions of people dying before it actually happens. These visions are somehow connected to the demon who murdered his mother and its mysterious plans that seem to be all about Sam. When their father dies striking a deal with the very same devil that had killed his wife, the brothers, now alone and without their mentor, are determined to finish the crusade their father started.

Show Creator Eric Kripke
is a big fan of classic rock, and thus wanted it to be played on the show. He wrote in the pages of the pilot script "CUE MUSIC And you can take your anemic alternative pop and shove it up your ass. Dean plays bass thumping, pile driving (Led Zeppelin
), and he plays it loud." See more
Sam Winchester frequently portrays a phony FBI agent to investigate cases. However, his hair is collar length and he's often shown to be unshaven. Both are unacceptable for FBI agents who are not on undercover assignments and Winchester never presents himself as being undercover. See more
