In just a few short weeks, The CW's long-running series Supernatural will return to kick off the back half of Season 11 with the winter premiere The Devil in the Details, airing Wednesday, January 20 at 9 PM ET. While no plot details have been released for that episode, TV Line has new information about another Season 11 episode, that will pit Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) against a group of professional wrestlers. If you have been waiting for these monster hunters to invade the world of pro wrestling, this as of yet untitled episode should be just up your alley.
The episode, which will be the 15th of Supernatural Season 11, centers on a wrestling tour that has been "rocked with some serious mayhem." Some of the wrestlers featured in this episode will be "Gunnar Lawless," a wrestling legend who is struggling with a lifetime full of regrets, "Shawn Harley," an ambitious rookie with a hot temper, and "Rio," a female wrestling manager who is saddened by so many of her wrestlers passing away from untimely deaths. Production on the episode begins in early January.
It isn't known if this episode will feature the Winchester brothers actually getting into the ring, or if any of the aforementioned wrestling characters have been cast yet. If there are no breaks between the January 20 midseason premiere and this untitled 15th episode, it should air on The CW Wednesday, February 24, but that air date has not yet been confirmed. It isn't known if other supporting characters such as Crowley (Mark Sheppard), Lucifer (Mark Pellegrino), Rowena (Ruth Connell) or Amara (Emily Swallow) will be featured in this episode.
Sam and Dean have spent their lives on the road, battling every kind of supernatural threat. Over the years, after countless bloody adventures, they have faced everything from the yellow-eyed demon that killed their mother to vampires, ghosts, shapeshifters, angels and fallen gods. With the help of allies - both human and supernatural - they've discovered that every victory comes with a price.
Supernatural is produced by Wonderland Sound and Vision in association with Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Jeremy Carver, Robert Singer and Philip Sgriccia. Eric Kripke created the series and serves as executive consultant, along with McG.
