Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Alexander Calvert, Thunderbird Dinwiddie, Katherine Evans, Lisa Berry, Panta Mosleh Writer: Steve Yockey, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Amanda Tapping Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: January 17, 2019 To paraphrase Oscar Wilde, to have Dean (Jensen Ackles) possessed once by the archangel Michael may be regarded as a misfortune; to have him possessed twice within the span of eight episodes looks like carelessness.
