Following the adventures of two brothers who investigate deeply strange and paranormal mysteries in their never- ending road trip, the TV show Supernatural has many fans eager to better understand the psychology behind the series' themes and characters. Through 20 essays, this collection examines such issues as; the role grief and trauma play in the protagonists' lives, the various archangels and archetypes depicted, how people can cope with tragedy, loss, addiction, and fear to become heroes who do the right thing and the dynamics of fandom: how fans relate to the narrative, characters, and actors, and continue to engage with series through fanfic, social media, and other practices.
