Way back in 2005 when I first hopped into the Impala with two brothers to go looking for their missing dad, I had no idea that nearly 12 years later, I would still be happily sitting in that back seat.

Sometimes when a show reaches double-digit seasons, it is hard to admit that it may be time for it to end. That is definitely not the case when it comes to the CW's Supernatural series.

While gearing up for Season 12, fans of Dean and Sam Winchester showed their undying love for the brothers and their cohorts by winning them the coveted #EWCoverBattle. They may not have gotten a trophy, but what they did win was even better: their very first #EWCoverBattle for Entertainment Weekly's Fall TV Preview! (Notice they even added a little moose and squirrel? Now, that's taking fandom to a whole new level!)

Not only do Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles look fantastic on the cover, but there will be lots of insight on the new season, which premiers on the CW on October 13th. To make it even better, there was a behind-the-scenes video featured on EW's Facebook page. If you have never seen the Supernatural boys in action off camera, you don't want to skip watching this!

So, from the entire SPNFamily, congratulations to all those who've worked tirelessly over almost 12 seasons to bring us a show that reminded us that you should always keep fighting no matter the odds and to ALWAYS be afraid of the thing hiding in your closet (but have the salt ready, just in case).

Thank you for bonding us as family, and giving us many years of love, tears, laughter and sorrow. Here's to many more!

If you are a subscriber to EW, you will get this awesome cover as part of your subscription, otherwise it is being offered exclusively at Barnes & Noble starting Friday, September 9.
