Filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, she was in development for almost ten years, until Kripke was able to throw it on the small screen. The pilot episode was followed by almost 5.7 million people, and the ratings of the first four episodes prompted the network to broadcast an entire first season, consisting of 22 episodes. The series is produced by Warner Bros. Television in association with Wonderland Sound and Vision.
The team includes executive producers Eric Kripke, McG, and Robert Singer; former executive producer Kim Manners died of lung cancer during production of the fourth season. Supernatural debuted 13 September 2005 on the network The WB, and then move on, from the second season onwards, in the schedule of the newly formed The CW. In the US in fact began on February 13 2007 , when the US was aired instead the second half of the second season.
Originally, Kripke planned the series for three seasons, which later became five; the fifth concludes in fact the main plot of the show as well as the imagined Kripke.

Like the Colt is surely one of the most powerful weapons appeared in the series, apparently seems capable of killing anything, including angels, demons and reapers, also it is the only weapon capable of killing the demons of the circle of the Knights of Hell. The first owner of the weapon was Cain, who carved the blade from the bone of the jaw of an animal, used the weapon to kill his brother Abel. Cain used the weapon to kill the other Knights of Hell, except for Abaddon, who managed to escape.
The blade actually in itself has no power, the source of its energy is the mark of Cain, which contains the essence enclosed in primordial darkness, and to give it power to the blade, the blade and in fact the brand they act as if they were one. Dean Cain goes to the brand, so the hunter gets the power to use the first blade, Dean uses it to kill Abaddon, and also the same Cain. In the final of the tenth season the blade loses all his power, by virtue of the fact that Castiel, Crowley and his mother Rowena destroy the brand with a spell, then removing the weapon the source of his power.
Are the tablets of stone written by the angel Metatron request of God, the tables are three in all and serve to confine the creatures in their dimensional planes, like leviathans in Purgatory, the angels in heaven and the demons in Hell. The tables contain the statements to run to constrain the creatures in various sizes, they can be read only by Metatron or a prophet of God, also if the table breaks the prophet can reassemble.
Four rings belonging to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, each ring is worn by a knight. The fifth season is focused on the research of the rings, for if together they create a seal very powerful, thanks to seal the Winchester brothers trap in the Underworld angels Michael and Lucifer. The seal is very powerful, enough to hold the two most powerful angels, it seems that in addition to the riders (as did Death taking Sam's soul from the cage) nobody else can break the seal, although Castiel, after God has brought back to life by increasing its powers, he has proved capable of breaking it freeing Sam.
On one occasion, Sam faces a leprechaun who said that, while not as powerful as the angels, it would be perfectly capable of stemming the seal rings with his magic. It seems that the knights derive their just power from the rings, in fact Sam, Dean and Castiel defeated War and Pestilence cutting their fingers when the rings were squeezed, but the power of the Knight of Death did not seem necessarily bound to the ring, as Dean sold the object to be without problems. In the sixth season Dean wears the ring being made a knight of Death, only to lose his powers after asserselo marched.
It appears for the first time in the third season, Ruby delivers it to Winchester, his blade has the ability to kill a demon, in fact, is one of the few weapons in the world, in addition to Colt, who has this power. Dean and Sam make more use in their struggles against the demons, even the same Ruby's over with perish at the hands of Dean because of the knife, also Bobby, in the first episode of the fifth season was successful and free from the control of a demon hurting the leg with the knife. The dagger still does not produce any effect against the demons belonging to the caste of the Knights of Hell , as Abaddon, which precisely are immune.
The Colt , and thirteen original bullets, were created by Samuel Colt for a paranormal hunter in 1835. According to legend, it can kill anything, including creatures normally immune to any kind of weapon. Also, it can open one of the gates of Hell. 6 of the bullets had been used before the Colt fall into the hands of a hunter named Daniel Elkins. Investigating his death, the Winchesters meet a clan of vampires who have come into possession of the weapon. Vampires mistake it for one of their classmates taken hostage by John, who eventually handed over to Azazel in exchange for the life of his son Dean, almost died in the car accident that ended the first season.
At the end of the second season, the last bullet is used to kill Azazel after opening the Gates of Hell located in Wyoming . Anyway, Ruby succeed later to help Bobby to build projectiles adaptable to the gun. Towards the end of the third season, Bela steals the gun to the brothers and delivery to the demon Lilith to cancel the deal she had made a decade earlier.
