The CW Orders Pilot for Jensen Ackles’ SUPERNATURAL Prequel

Death in Supernatural was a fluid occurrence. In a series where angels, demons, and ghosts frequently appeared, no one was ever really gone. And that also applies to the series itself. Back in June 2021, Deadline reported a Supernatural prequel series called The Winchesters was in development with a script commitment at The CW. Fast-forward to February 2022 and The CW has formally ordered a pilot. Jensen Ackles and Danneel Ackles are aboard as executive producers (through their company Chaos Machine Productions) along with Robbie Thompson. Ackles will reprise his role of Dean Winchester… just in narrator form.

The Winchesters will focus on Dean and Sam’s parents, John and Mary. As Supernatural revealed, Mary Winchester (maiden name Mary Campbell) came from a family of hunters. Mary’s parents brought her into the lifestyle—a life from which Mary tried to escape to have a normal life with John. She retired from hunting, married John, and had Sam and Dean. Her apple pie life didn’t last; the demon Azazel killed her, sparking John’s entry into hunting and raising Sam and Dean in the life Mary never wanted.

Dean Winchester will narrate The Winchesters and tell the story of how John and Mary met and risked it all to save the world. Aww. Ackles told Deadline, “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.”

Given that Supernatural ran for 15 seasons on The CW, it’s no surprise that the network is game for more Winchester material. They tried out backdoor pilots for spinoffs at a couple of points, but the ideas didn’t work out. Here, though, they have tried and true material with the Winchesters. We’ve even seen young John and Mary Winchester (played by Matt Cohen and Amy Gumenick, respectively) in Supernatural. Whatever weirdness Sam and Dean dealt with in the drama, it always came back to family. This is a fitting subject for a prequel.

But if you’re wondering: where does Sam Winchester fit into this? Well, he apparently doesn’t. After news about the Supernatural prequel broke on Thursday evening, Jared Padalecki shared his shocked reaction on Twitter. He apparently didn’t know anything about the show and also apparently lost Jensen Ackles’ phone number?

Padalecki tweeted that he felt gutted. And hey, after working so closely with Ackles on the show for over 15 years, we get it. Let’s hope they make up, just like Sam and Dean always did in the series.

In a further update on Friday, it seems the duo talked are back on positive terms again.

But while Padalecki isn’t part of the Supernatural spinoff, he is busy at work with a spinoff of his own. The Walker star is executive producing Walker: Independence, a prequel for The CW set in the 1800s following Abby Walker, Bostonian who winds up in Texas as her journey out West hits a few tragic snags.

Should The CW like The Winchesters pilot, it’ll be the first Supernatural spinoff to make it to air.

Been watching some old SPN and realised Jared has indeed had a hair transplant of some kind. Likely a fue procedure. His fringe line has been altered and filled in. It's very apparent when you look at pics of him now and before.

He should of had the procedure and followed what is or was his natural front peak and filled it in. They're changed it and made it more obvious by creating a new one which was not natural to him.

I doubt it's a wig s he has the money to do it properly-although not here..

by Anonymousreply 84October 14, 2022 7:30 AM

I just caught the premiere.

As a hard core Supernatural fan, I'm sad to say that I HATED it.

First off, they changed John and Mary's history. Right off the bat.

In the original series, when Dean is sent back in time for the first time, John is an innocent young man back from the war. He has no clue that Mary is a hunter from a hunter family. And this is AFTER they had been dating for a while.

In fact, John is about to propose to Mary, and he STILL doesn't know she's a hunter.

So why are they starting off this series with them just meeting, and Mary telling John that she's a hunter?

Anyone who watches Supernatural, knows that's not the correct timeline!!!

Second, I don't like the actress who plays Mary. AT ALL.

She's not right for the part. They are trying to make her some badass hunter like Sam and Dean, but that's not who she is. In the time two times that we've seen Mary (in the 1970's), the actress who played Mary (Amy Gumenick) is very soft and sweet. Endearingly sweet, in fact.

This young actress they have in the Winchester series is cold and not very charismatic. And she has no chemistry with the guy who plays John Winchester.

I hate that young females nowdays always have to be like men. They always have to be "kickass" and hard, to give the impression of strength.

I feel that there's a strength in softness. You can be passive and sweet, yet still be strong. Many women are like that. Female characters don't always have to be a "badass bitch" to be "strong."

I think that both Amy Gumenick and Samantha Smith (original Mary Winchester) are both soft spoken, yet strong. They both portrayed a softer side of Mary Winchester, yet both had strength when it was called for. But not in the way that this new actress is portraying it. This actress is just too fucking bossy. And that's NOT the Mary Winchester I know from the 15 seasons of Supernatural.

The guy who plays John just seems like a sidekick to Mary, which just adds to the frustration of this first episode.

Sam and Dean were partners. "The Winchesters" Mary and John are not partners. They made her the boss, and that too is not the way they were portrayed in Supernatural. In the original show, they were an old-fashioned husband and wife couple from the 1970's, trying to raise a family.

This new John and Mary are too 2022. Not 1972. And I hate that.

I'm shocked that the people involved in this show have strayed so much from the lore and the original characters.

You have McG as producer, Robbie Thompson as EP and writer, and Jensen and Danneel as EP's.

All of these people are very familiar with all 15 seasons of the original Supernatural, so it just bums me out that this new show doesn't have any of the feel of the old Supernatural.

I'm not loving it so far.

Amy is/was beautiful. But wasn’t young enough anymore for this role.

John and Mary are not a couple yet, so they can act however they want.

It will NEVER have the feel of the original show considering, NONE of the original actors have any part of it.

[quote] The Winchesters: 12 Supernatural Characters Who Should Visit Spinoff

The Winchesters already features three characters familiar to Supernatural fans — Mary, John and Dean — so what’s 12 more?

On the heels of the news that Gil McKinney will reprise his role as Henry Winchester on The CW’s prequel spinoff (airing Tuesdays at 8/7c), we here at TVLine put on our thinking caps and came up with some other characters from the mothership series that we’d love to see on the offshoot.

Many a supernatural and celestial being has close ties to the story of John and Mary Winchester’s past, and thanks to the magic of time travel and the fact that several of these characters are ageless wonders (or evils), it’s not out of the realm of possibility that folks like Dean and Sam’s angel pal Castiel or the demon Azazel could visit the show. We even came up with a couple of Supernatural vets who could possibly be responsible for The Winchesters‘ different recollection of how John and Mary met, and how he learned about the world of demons and hunting.

Plus, there’s a few fan-favorite human hunters who were around in 1972, when the spinoff is set, and thus could appear in young incarnations.

Note: Since it’s already been announced that Henry Winchester and Samuel Campbell (played by Tom Welling) are set to appear, we didn’t include other obvious immediate family members like Deanna Campbell among our selections.

It was not shown tonight on FIOS because of dispute between the CW’s owner and Verizon. I will watch it tomorrow on CW’s App.

How was episode two?

R102 It was an OK monster of the week episode and had some decent character development but still not as good as the main show

Kripke must have input on this show.

It's his sense of humor, snarkiness, quirkiness, and pop culture knowledge that made Supernatural so unique.

Jensen has none of that. All he has is drive and ambition to become more famous.

That usually doesn't equate to a good show.

TVLine did mention that Verizon and MediaStar, or whoever they are, were bickering and many major cities had lost the CW channel altogether.

So the ratings are going to reflect that.

Sorry to say I fell asleep during EP 2. ☺️

I was watching the opening credits (before I fell asleep) and there are many many exec producers. Some of them were also exec producers on the mothership. Robbie Thompson, even McG is back too. It should be a better show than this. Hopefully the storyline picks up because right now it’s not very exciting. They need more Carlos.

The Indian lady actually looked like some sort of south American native with her “hippie” outfit 😛

Is anyone watching this show?

by Anonymousreply 108November 2, 2022 3:07 AM

Some people are.

It should be better than it is. I guess because maybe I feel that we’ve seen all this before but it isn’t as exciting this go-round.

I do love the Carlos character.

For some reason John is looking a lot more like Supernaturals John Winchester, aka Jeff Dean Morgan. In certain poses or with certain expressions he looks so much like him.

I’ll stick around to see Grandpa Campbell, (the hottie Tom Welling) then I’ll figure out if I’ll keep watching.

Will now only be 13 episodes for the season. No back order for a full 22 ep one.

Seems new owners of CW are not committed to any of the shows currently running.

Could end up dying in a ditch after just one short season unless they find a new buyer.

New CW is committed to cheap reality type shows. They seem to want to junk all expensive scripted shows.

Wow, that's bad news R110.

But honestly, I'm not really liking this new show.

It has none of the feel of the original Supernatural that I love.

Drake had a nice shirtless scene at the start.

Was early Supernatural so cheap with the special effects?

by Anonymousreply 113November 2, 2022 5:53 AM

I didn't think so, R113.

I actually think the Supernatural FX were pretty good, especially for 2005.

R112 He also had a scene at the end with a wet shirt sitting in the tub

I just started watching the show and I'm on episode two. Can't say I'm enjoying it too much. Guy playing John is spot on (and obviously super hot, Jensen probably picked him) and the girl playing Mary is ok enough. I watched Supernatural on-off over the years but don't remember too much about what was told about the parents which is why I don't mind little retconning.

However I do have a problem with the writing. They formed the team with the three others way too quickly. It would've been better if they'd just had John and Mary alone for some time before bringing in others this majorly.

[quote] I do love the Carlos character.

My main problem with the show is Carlos. It's like the producers learned from all the Supernatural gay shipping and created this creature that's bi/gay/queer/trans/lesbian/black/latin/clown. It doesn't help that the actor seems to think he's in a sitcom, although obviously he can only do that much with the material he's given. That said all other actors can sell their lines, however silly they might be, but not him. It's drag queen level overacting he's giving, and it's quite embarrassing.

Another main issue is the show's poor quality. Terrible writing, poorly written characters and a CW teen show feel drag the show down which is a shame since otherwise production values are mainly high enough.

Supernatural always drew a fine line between comedic moments and dead-serious story lines.

He’s there for comic relief, which is fine. He looks fabulous and has a fantastic attitude towards that horrifying world they live in.

R117, yes, Carlos is there for comedy but it's all done so terribly badly that it doesn't work. I don't hate the actor, he's ok at times but he's just not skilled enough to pull off all the things thrown at him.

Has "The Winchesters" been cancelled yet?

I heard that the show was "on the bubble" with the CW execs.
