Stars say ‘talks are happening’ in relation to bringing Supernatural back

January 29th, 2024 by Marc Comments

So, many of us thought that with the cancellation of The Winchesters show, the world of Supernatural was dead and gone but, well, it seems like that’s not necessarily the case.

The series, which ran for 16 seasons on The CW and had an anime series, spinoff (with others planned but never made) and let’s not forget the Ghostfacers Youtube series, has a heck of a legacy but it seems that Sam and Dean Winchester might still have some gas in the tank, so to speak.

At the Creation Honolulu convention stars Jared Padelecki (Sam) and Jensen Ackles (Dean) said that there are plans afoot.

“I have some ideas, and I hope that now that the writers are back, and the actors are back, that we all get together,” Padalecki said, with Ackles adding: “Stay tuned on that. There are some conversations regarding that conversation that are being had.”

The show ended in 2020 after kicking off in 2005 and, I’ll be honest, I’ve recently started watching it with the family (we’re on season 6) and we’re all having a blast with it.

Ackles has previously said of the series that it was temporarily halted rather than wrapped: “It was more of like, 15 years, we need to just press pause. It’s a long time, and come up for air and see what that looks like, and this is what it looks like. But what the future holds. Yeah, I definitely think he and I would be up for talking about [coming back].”

“Jensen [Ackles] and I asked for 13-episode seasons of Supernatural, many, many, many times,” Padalecki says of the show’s long-running tenure, “As a matter of fact, I feel like if we had done 13-episode seasons of Supernatural, we’d probably still be doing Supernatural right now. Because it’s hard to do a long network season while also trying to be a husband and a father and friend.”

It seems that the main duo aren’t the only ones hopeful for a return, with co-star Misha Collins, who played the angel Castiel on the show, long-time companion for the Winchester brothers in their battle against evil, has also hopes that the series will return: “I still hold on to some shred of hope that, at some point, we can do some resurrection of the show. Some movie or limited-run series… find some way to say hello and goodbye to the characters one more time.”

Having stars who want to come back to a project is far, as we all know, from enough to make a comeback happen, but Supernatural, and the Winchesters in particular, have a big fan following and it seems that, if there’s the drive behind making it happen, a Supernatural return would be welcomed with open arms.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
