The Winchester brothers just won another war! Supernatural came out victorious in Entertainment Weekly‘s Fall TV cover battle, beating 63 other new and returning fall shows including The Big Bang Theory, Gilmore Girls and Arrow. The cover features lead stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, who play Sam and Dean respectively, as well as Baby, the 1967 Chevy Impala the brothers have been driving since the beginning. The best thing about it, though, is that the space between the e’s in the magazine’s name have been replaced with a moose and a squirrel — symbols that only true Supernatural fans can understand.

A Squirrel and a Moose in the name…clever EW. Clever.
Subscribers to the magazine will receive the Supernatural edition of the Fall TV Preview cover, which includes updates from the set of The CW’s longest-running series and information on 136 other TV shows. The special collectors’ edition will be sold exclusively at Barnes & Noble nationwide, beginning Sept. 9.
Meanwhile, Supernatural will be bringing back a familiar face for its 12th season. According to TV Line, Veronica Mars vet Adam Rose is set to reprise his role of Aaron Bass as Sam and Dean prepare to fight Hitler. Aaron, who appeared in the season 8 episode “Everybody Hates Hitler” as the grandson of a member of the Judah Initiative, will be resurfacing in the fifth episode, which also marks the return of the Thule Society.
“[They] want to enact their master plan and bring back Hitler,” showrunner Andrew Dabb previously teased to TVLine. “Sam and Dean are going to fight Hitler, and that’s opening up some interesting doors for us in terms of just doing some more crazy stuff.”
Supernatural season 12 premieres Thursday, October 13 at 9/8c on The CW.
