Returning cast members also include Misha Collins as Castiel, Mark Sheppard as Crowley, and Ruth Connell as Rowena MacLeod. The new season will also introduce musician/actor Rick Springfield as Lucifer.

In addition to the strange Winchester family reunion that will be taking place in season 12, fans of the popular series can expect to see the Winchesters battling Hitler and more on Castiel’s past. And with the addition of Springfield as Lucifer inhabiting the body of a musician, there will be an episode that delves into the world of rock stars.

The ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ Plot: MAMA WINCHESTER IS BACK — Dean (Ackles) is overwhelmed as he comes face to face with his mom, Mary Winchester (Smith). Meanwhile, Sam (Padalecki) is fighting for his life after Toni, from the Woman of Letters, shot him. Phil Sgriccia directed the episode written by Andrew Dabb.
