On March 23, 1972, John Winchester returns home to Lawrence, Kansas from the Vietnam War where he meets Mary Campbell whose father, Samuel, has recently disappeared. Receiving a letter from his long-missing father, Henry, John is drawn to a Men of Letters clubhouse where Mary saves him from a demon. Introduced to the world of the supernatural, John learns that his father was a Man of Letters and joins Mary's search for Samuel who was looking for a magical box that can trap and destroy monsters. With the help of Mary's friends Latika and Carlos, they track the box to a New Orleans cemetery where they face both a loup-garou watchdog and a demon possessing Ada Monroe. While John kills the monster, the others are able to use the box to exorcise and destroy the demon. In the aftermath, Ada explains that the box is the only thing that can kill the Akrida, monsters from another world that seek to invade Earth. With the Men of Letters gone and unable to stop them, Samuel was seeking the box to stop a coming invasion. Deciding to become a hunter, John joins the others in traveling to Savannah, Georgia in pursuit of another lead. Narrating these events, Dean Winchester reveals that, unbeknownst to the group, the Akrida are a threat to all of existence and he intends to continue searching for more information on this lost chapter of his parents' lives.

In Savannah, the group finds the files on the Akrida gone, but signs of Samuel having been present, including a newspaper clipping directing them to a case in Topeka, Kansas. Upon returning home, John clashes with his mother over his hunting and storms off. In Topeka, kids have begun vanishing from a hippie commune, taken by a shapeshifting monster. Mary's desperation to solve the case and resume the search for Samuel leads her to clash with the others, putting John in danger when the monster assumes the form of Millie and kidnaps him. The group identifies it as La Tunda, an abusive mother who was transformed into a monster and which consumes disobedient children. Locating La Tunda's lair, they rescue her victims and kill La Tunda with a piece of her own wooden leg. John reconciles with his mother while Ada uses a potion and automatic writing to access the echoes of the demon that had possessed her, searching for information on the other demon that the group had fought in the hopes that it will have information on the Akrida and the box. At the same time, the Akrida leader enters La Tunda's lair, absorbs a piece of her essence into a vial and is followed by several Akrida as it leaves.

Mary's neighbor Carrie is abducted, leading Mary, John and Lata on a search for her while Ada and Carlos hunt for Slick, the partner of the demon that had possessed Ada. Slick reveals that he and his partner, convinced that the Akrida can't be stopped even with the box, had made a deal to trade the box for their lives. However, he doesn't know anything about how the box itself works or about the Akrida aside from the fact that the Akrida leader has taken a human vessel. Rather than exorcise the demon, Ada magically traps him in a bonsai tree. After Carrie's brother Ford is also abducted, it's discovered that the culprit is Bori Baba, an Indian boogeyman who lures children in using items that they are seeking. Mary enters Bori Baba's bag to rescue the children while Lata learns from an estranged relative that the victims must destroy the items that they are seeking in order to be free. John is able to communicate this to Mary using a CB radio, forcing her to face her fears of life after hunting. When the monster follows them out, John is able to kill it and Carrie and Ford are reunited with their mom. During this time, John is reunited and makes amends with his ex-fiancé Betty while Mary enjoys a date at the movies. The appearance of La Tunda and Bori Baba, two rare monsters from other cultures, worries the group about the implications while an Akrida brings Bori Baba's bag to its leader who absorbs a piece of the monster's essence as she did with La Tunda. The Akrida leader is revealed to be possessing Rockin' Roxy, a local DJ.

The case forces John and Carlos to confront their trauma from the Vietnam War while Mary and Lata confront their grief over the loss of Mary's cousin Maggie. It's discovered that the culprit is Mars Neto, a Celtiberian deity who posed as one of the group members. Mars reveals that a war is coming with the Akrida and that he believes that John, as both a hunter and a soldier, could be sharpened into a powerful weapon to defeat them. As John fights Mars, Mary, Lata and Millie find and destroy Mars' amphora, rendering him vulnerable and allowing John to kill him. However, the dying Mars tells John that he is now ready for the war with the Akrida.

The Monster Club investigate a series of strange deaths that they believe to be the work of a djinn. At an abandoned warehouse, the hunters encounter Tony, a half-djinn who is Ada's estranged son from her relationship with a djinn named Ali who was killed by hunters. While the rest go off to search for leads, Ada and Carlos stay behind to confront Tony. However, Tony confronts Ada while she's sleeping. Still angry about her lying to him, and hurt that she thinks he is killing people, he informs Ada that he has actually been using his djinn abilities to help people face their fears and heal, while only feeding enough to get by. He reveals that the Akrida are actually responsible, having encountered one during his attempt to help one of the victims and that he was lured to the town by a strange sound that only monsters can hear. The team learns that victims were all injected with a mind control toxin that ultimately proved fatal to them. While protecting the Akrida's next victim, whose name Tony passed along to Ada, Mary is injected with the toxin. Ada convinces Tony to use his dreamwalking powers to help John enter Mary's mind where she faces the trauma of the night that her parents told a five-year old Mary that she would grow up to hunt monsters, allowing her to destroy the Akrida stingers. In the aftermath, Tony reveals that the Akrida are collecting the essence of rare monsters and the group deduces that the victims are all connected to a radio tower project that the Akrida are using to broadcast a signal to draw in rare monsters. Ada, having finally reconciled with Tony, decides to leave with him to make sure he gets to a safe place far away from the Akrida. From records of the project, they identify Rockin' Roxy as the Akrida leader. Another Akrida warns Roxy that Mary has failed to fall under their control, but she is unconcerned, believing that the Akrida will get the hunters the way that they want eventually. Throughout these events, John continues to develop romantic feelings for Mary, but he chooses not to reveal them in favor of encouraging Mary to follow her dream of leaving town to find a new life after she eventually quits hunting.

The Monster Club finds the Akrida's radio tower abandoned and signs that Samuel has been captured and Roxy demands an exchange of the box for Samuel. Ada finds files on the box in another abandoned Men of Letters office in Ann Arbor, Michigan with the notes having been written by Henry Winchester. The notes, deciphered by Millie, reveal that the box is actually the Ostium, a portal that can banish monsters from this plane of existence as well as the fact that the Akrida are all connected to their queen. If the queen is banished back to the Akrida's universe, the others will all die. The group performs a seance to summon Henry's ghost for more information and he reveals how the box can be recharged while getting to say the goodbye to his wife and son that he never had before. Assaulting Roxy's new base, Mary and John succeed in banishing the Akrida leader with the Ostium, but it fails to affect the other Akrida, revealing that Roxy wasn't actually their queen. Cornered, John and Mary kiss before an injured Samuel uses the Ostium to banish the rest of the attacking Akrida. Throughout these events, the Akrida's mind-controlled servants dig for what is revealed to be the Akrida queen. Finding her, the servants bring the queen the monster essences, promising to make the queen strong again so that she can bring the others and the Akrida can make this world their own.

After failing to find any sign of the Akrida queen at the locations that Samuel had previously scouted, Carlos and Lata approach Rockin' Roxy for help, learning that Roxy's life was ruined by her ordeal. Using a form of magical hypnosis taught to her by Tony Monroe, Lata is able to help Roxy recall her possession and the location of the Akrida queen. Although Lata offers to erase Roxy's memories of her possession, Roxy chooses not to, wanting to remember that her ordeal helped to stop the Akrida. At the location indicated by Roxy, Carlos and Lata spot several Akrida puppets and realize that they've found the queen. John and Mary are approached by a man claiming to be retired Man of Letters Porter Hobbes who offers them a way to stop the Akrida, revealing that although the Akrida had previously been repelled in 1957, several remained hidden on Earth, including the queen, and they presumably orchestrated the destruction of the Men of Letters. However, the two eventually discover that he's actually Jack Wilcox who was kicked out of the order for human experimentation after Henry exposed him.

In a flashback, after John returns from Vietnam, he is given Henry's letter by Dean who is hunting the Akrida with Bobby Singer. A hunter named Joan Hopkins reveals herself to be the Akrida Queen who, in the 1600s, was driven insane by hunting and consuming monster essences and, convinced that humanity needed to be destroyed, was banished from the world as she couldn't be killed. After Lata is possessed by an Akrida, Ada sacrifices the magic that Rowena gave to her in order to save her friend's life. As John, Carlos and Samuel attempt to stop Joan from opening her portal, the others use the Ostium to try to bring back Dean who was banished by Joan. They succeed in bringing back the Impala which Mary is able to kill Joan with as the car is not of their world, destroying the Akrida as well. Dean rescues Mary from Joan's portal and reveals that the Monster Club is in an alternate universe. While driving through Heaven after his death, Dean had taken a detour through the multiverse looking for a world where his family got a happy ending, only to find the Akrida who were created by Chuck as a failsafe in case of his defeat. With the Akrida threatening Sam's safety as well, Dean defied Jack's orders about no interference to stop them. Before departing with Jack and Bobby, Dean gives his parents his hunter's journal to help guide them and The Colt in case they ever encounter Azazel. When they ask his name, Dean hesitates before giving them a fake name. He then vanishes with Jack and Bobby to return to Heaven. In the aftermath, John and Mary set off to figure out their future together while their friends continue hunting.
