But where's Castiel?

Believe it or not, when Supernatural returns, Sam and Dean will have more to worry about than just the apocalypse world.

In the first trailer for season 13, the guys are seen dealing with the “new sheriff in town,” who appears to be that “new player” that showrunner Andrew Dabb previously mentioned. In other words, he’s the guy who wants control of Hell now that Crowley’s gone. But does his all-white attire mean he’s an angel? We’ll have to wait and see.

Also in the trailer, we get a first glimpse at some of Jack’s powers, and we hear Dean praying, so fingers crossed for a God appearance. The one thing not in this trailer? Castiel, who died in the season 12 finale, but who we know will be back… in some way or another.

Watch the full trailer above. Supernatural season 13 premieres Thursday, Oct. 12 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
