TNT Conjures Up Pre-Season Supernatural Marathon for Sept. 23-24

TNT will air a 20-hour marathon of favorite Supernatural episodes to get fans ready for the latest season of the hit series. The haunting drama will take over TNT's lineup Thursday, Sept. 23, at midnight (ET/PT) through Friday, Sept. 24, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT) to build excitement for the series' sixth season premiere on The CW (Friday, Sept. 24, at 9 p.m.). The marathon will include several episodes from Supernatural's fifth season, including the season premiere and season finale.

Supernatural follows Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles), two brothers bound by tragedy and blood to their dangerous, other-worldly mission. Together, they face supernatural evil using the skills they learned from their father. During the show's fifth season, Dean and Sam faced their toughest foe yet: the Devil himself. As the Apocalypse raged on around them, the brothers, aided only by a dwindling band of fellow hunters and rebel angel Castiel (Misha Collins), sought a way to stop Lucifer and save the planet. Supernatural is produced by Warner Bros. Television in association with Wonderland Sound and Vision, with executive producers McG (Charlie's Angels, The O.C.), Eric Kripke (Boogeyman), Robert Singer (Midnight Caller), Sera Gamble, Ben Edlund and Phil Sgriccia.

TNT's marathon will kick off Thursday, Sept. 23, at midnight (ET/PT) with the fourth-season finale, "Lucifer Rising," followed by the fifth-season premiere, "Sympathy for the Devil." The schedule for Friday, Sept. 24, will include 10 additional episodes from the fifth season, including the dramatic season finale at 7 p.m. (ET/PT). TNT will follow its Supernatural marathon with a special presentation of the 2007 sci-fi blockbuster I Am Legend, starring Will Smith.
