Supernatural Season 11 Trailer: Sam Faces Bloody, Unspeakable Torture

Is Supernatural heading into its darkest season yet?

That’s what the first official promo — released Wednesday by The CW — would have us believe, as the minute-long video begins with Sam begging for God’s help in battling The Darkness. (Extra points to Crowley for addressing its “terrible name,” by the way.)

What follows is a hectic first look at what Season 11 — premiering Wednesday, Oct. 8 — has in store for fans of the long-running drama, including a tortured Sam, a crazy-eyed Castiel and (I’m pretty sure) a supernatural threesome.

To its credit, there is one superbly light moment at the very end of the trailer, and as you might have guessed, the snarky comment comes courtesy of Dean.
