Warner Bros. Home Video will release Supernatural Season 9 on Tuesday, September 9th. This release will be available on Bluray, DVD and Digital HD.
How do you deal with a fallout of heavenly proportions? With the angelic Host’s descent to Earth, Sam and Dean are now facing a world inhabited by thousands of powerful beings, who soon form their own chaotic agendas. Before tackling the threat of the “loose nukes” roaming the globe, however, the Winchesters engage in their most personal conflict yet. Meanwhile, Castiel finds he’s more vulnerable – and yet capable of more humanity – than ever. As the threat escalates, a way must be found to reopen the gates of Heaven and head off a demon insurrection in Hell. The whole time, darkness leaves its mark on Dean, but has he finally crossed the line to protect his family? The excitement of this 23-episode ninth season is positively epic.
It wasn’t that long ago that there was hardly any shows dealing with supernatural forces. You could easily count them on one hand. Now it seems they are everywhere and they cater to just about everyone’s taste. A lot of the credit for helping build this genre goes to the extremely talented cast and crew of Supernatural. It’s hard to believe that viewers have been keeping up with the Winchesters for 9 seasons. Angels are at war and hell is a mess with humanity stuck in the middle.
One of the highlights of this release is more screen time for Crowley (Mark Sheppard). One of the highlights from this season was watching Castiel (Misha Collins) deal with being human while being hunted by his former kind. This season had a lot of fun elements and there is something for everyone. The introduction of the first blade made for a great story arc and it was great seeing Timothy Omundson’s portrayal of Cain. The great thing about Supernatural is their amazing writers. By the ninth season some shows show their age and run out of story ideas, these writers seem to raise the bar each season. Supernatural has a passionate fan base which plays into them being around for nine seasons and growing each year.
