So Supernatural Season Five is starting in the UK on Living Tv in February, and OMG they are actually promoting the Show.

They are running what they are calling an "alternate reality game", which basically sounds like a treasure hunt, where players hunt for "Enochian Sigials" hidden in the real world and online and send pics of. Players can also form teams through Facebook.

You can find out more about it at here the SuperWiki or visit the website at www.luciferiscoming.com

The prize is "a chance to appear in the show" which would be pretty amazing. The contest is open to UK residents only.

For those of us interested in the use of digital and social media for marketing, it will be interesting to see how it goes. And the CW might pick up an idea or two.

For us Aussies: no word on when SPN will return to network ten. However good news is Rob Benedict has been announced as the 4th guest at the ABHL2 Con in May

And finally the Season 4 Official Companion book is out on 27 July, with the Season 5 book announced for 21 September.
