Season Four of Supernatural consists of twenty-two episodes that originally aired between September 18, 2008 and May 14, 2009 in the United States. The season focuses on Dean's return from Hell and the introduction of angels to the show, and through this, the season's story arc focuses on Sam's use of his demonic side with Ruby and on the efforts to stop Lilith's demons from starting the Apocalypse.


Four months after his death in Season 3, Dean is resurrected from Hell by the angel Castiel to help the angels on Earth. Sam and Dean learn and attempt to help the angels stop Lilith and her demons from breaking the 66 seals that keep Lucifer imprisoned in Hell. Meanwhile, Sam is secretly embracing and attempting to use his demonic nature with Ruby and is carelessly developing an addiction to demon blood through it, and Sam's actions and how he begins to choose Ruby and the path she's giving him over Dean begins to cause a growing rift between the brothers. At the same time, Dean doesn't want to talk with anyone about his time in Hell, as he is haunted by what he did in Hell and what happened to him there. Dean and Castiel also attempt during the efforts to stop the 66 seals being broken to learn what Azazel's true endgame plan for Sam beneath the demon army plan really is.

Ultimately, after 65 of Lucifer's seals are broken, Dean discovers that the higher-up angels want Lucifer to be freed so that what remains of the Earth will become Paradise in the aftermath of the Apocalypse, but Castiel betrays the Host of Heaven and joins Dean in stopping the Apocalypse. Meanwhile, Sam and Ruby track Lilith down and Sam kills her, but then discovers that Lilith's death breaks the last seal on Lucifer's cage and that Ruby and Azazel were always manipulating Sam into doing this, and Lucifer is subsequently released from Hell and the Apocalypse begins.
