'Supernatural' season 14: Showrunner Andrew Dabb reveals that bigger threats await Dean on his return
Fans can expect Dean to be rescued at some point or the other during season 14. Apart from that, he will also have to face his possession's long-term effects.
So far what we know about the upcoming premiere of 'Supernatural' is that Dean is possessed by the Archangel Michael and that Sam and the rest of the team are doing all they can to try and find out Michael's whereabouts in order to save Dean.
It has now been revealed that fans can expect Dean to be rescued at some point or the other during season 14. Apart from that, it has also been revealed that this possession of him will have long-term effects on him. In an interview with TVLine, showrunner Andrew Dabb revealed that the upcoming episodes indicate that there are way bigger threats that Dean will have to face than while he is being possessed by Michael. They are not physical effects but more like just an after-effect.
"The dangers for him are more when Dean comes out of this, or when he's rescued from this," he said. "What is going to be the after-effect of it? For our characters, especially our main characters, everything they go through, from stubbing their toe to dying for the 34th time, it's less about the event [and] more about how it affects them moving forward."
"That's something Dean's going to be struggling with as our season progresses." He even added that Sam and Castiel are trying to cope in their own ways as they try their hardest to rescue Dean from the archangel who is from an alternate reality.
"For Sam, obviously, he's extremely driven to find Dean," he said. "He's mobilized everyone he can think of, including the Apocalypse World hunters, to do this. Cas is very much the same way. Cas is very much like, 'We have to find him'. He's going to certain people, possibly with black eyes, who he would not normally contact, but he's looking for their help to find Dean."
Apart from Dean's situation, he even spoke about the situation in Heaven and Hell with Lucifer dead now. "Heaven is running on fumes, basically. There are a handful of angels up there, just trying to hold everything together. Hell is a different story. We’re going to get a really good preview of what’s going on in Hell, actually, in the first episode."
'Supernatural' season 14 returns this Thursday at 8 pm ET on The CW.
