It's been a long summer waiting to find out what will happen to our favorite demon hunters Dean and Sam Winchester on "Supernatural," and The CW has finally, finally, finally released our first look at Season 9 with a promo video.

After failing to complete the third trial to close the gates of hell, Sam is in pretty bad shape ... he's laying in a hospital bed, unconscious, with Dean at his side. Though the doctor tries to offer comforting words to Dean about Sam's condition -- "You're telling me that my brother's life is in God's hands?!" -- he obviously doesn't know about Dean's issues with the big man himself ... issues that will only grow when Death comes for Sam. What will Dean do to save his brother?

The new footage also gives us a brief glimpse at newly-human Castiel on the run (from other fallen angels?), our first look at injured warrior angel Ezekiel (played by Tahmoh Penikett), Abadon raging about how the angels will bow to her or burn, and a still-imprisoned (and almost human?) Crowley.

Watch the new promo below:

"Supernatural" Season 9 premieres on Tuesday, Oct. 8 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
