it seems that Jenson Ackles can not let go of SUPERNATURAL as it’s been confirmed that the actor who played Dean Winchester for an amazing 15 seasons is now working on a TV Show prequel.
Simply called “The Winchesters“, the show will tell the story of how Sam and Dean’s parents, John and Mary met, fell in love, while fighting evil of course.
Fans will find this odd as the story was told in either flashbacks or in a time travelling way during the original series, but with Ackles himself involved and he will narrate the story, this is a serious attempt of a Supernatural continuation.
Ackles had this to say:
After Supernatural wrapped its 15th season, we knew it wasn’t over. Because like we say in the show, ‘nothing ever really ends, does it?’.
When Danneel and I formed Chaos Machine Productions, we knew the first story we wanted to tell was the story of John and Mary Winchester, or rather the Supernatural origin story. I always felt like my character, Dean, would have wanted to know more about his parents’ relationship and how it came to be. So I love the thought of having him take us on this journey.”
IJohn and Mary were played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Samantha Smith in the original run with Matt Cohen and Amy Gumenick playing the younger versions of the characters. No news yet of who will play the new versions.
The Winchesters has a script commitment from The CW.
