Next month, The CW will welcome back Supernatural for Season 12, and the network is already teasing fans with updates on the return. A handful of first-look photos of the season's second episode were just released, and the promos hint at an action-packed storyline.
"Mamma Mia" will see Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) and his mother Mary (Samantha Smith) staging a rescue mission to retrieve Sam (Jared Padalecki). The youngest Winchester is being held captive by a secretive society known only as the Men of Letters.
If you want to check out the episode's official synopsis, you can read it below:
"Dean, Castiel and Mary have a lead on Sam and set out to rescue him. Dean is uncomfortable with putting Mary in danger but she insists on going along. Meanwhile, Crowley is tipped off that Lucifer has taken over the body of rock star Vince Vicente."
Brad Buckner & Eugenie Ross-Leming scripted the episode while Thomas J. Wright directed.
The new slew of photos also feature one of Supernatural's guest stars this season. Rick Springfield signed onto the show to play an aging rock star named Vince Vicente, the new vessel for Lucifer. Of course, the actor is just one of many who've been the demonic surrogate for Lucifer's nefarious deeds.
Andrew Dabb, executive producer, says that Lucifer uses his most recent vessel to be worshipped. With God out of the picture in Supernatural, Lucifer grows bored and wishes to be worshipped. However, the name 'Lucifer' does come with some backlash, so the fallen angel possess Vicente.
"Worship is fun. Having people worship you, it's a good time. Unfortunately, there's a lot of baggage with the name Lucifer, let's put it that way," Dabb said. "So for him, popping into someone like the rock star Vince Vincente, it allows him experience that almost God-like worship."
