SUPERNATURAL Prequel Series THE WINCHESTERS In The Works With Jensen Ackles Set To Produce And Narrate

Are you ready for another ride in the Impala? It's been revealed today that Jensen Ackles, his wife Danneel, and Supernatural co-executive producer Robbie Thompson are developing a prequel spinoff series!

Deadline reveals that Supernatural is already making a comeback on The CW with a prequel series titled The Winchesters officially in the works. The plan is to put the spotlight on Sam and Dean's parents, John and Mary, but Jensen Ackles will return to his most iconic role to narrate the show (he'll also produce alongside his wife and Supernatural recurring guest star Danneel).

"Before Sam and Dean, there was John and Mary," reads a longline. "Told from the perspective of narrator Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles), The Winchesters is the epic, untold love story of how John met Mary and how they put it all on the line to not only save their love, but the entire world."

Jeffrey Dean Morgan played John and Samantha Smith starred as Mary in Supernatural, but it's clear that both characters will be recast for this exploration of their relationship in its earliest days.

"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?'" Ackles said in a statement shared today. "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."

The series has a script commitment at The CW, so it's too soon to say whether the network will move forward with the project. Supernatural was a big draw on the network, though, and we'd be willing to be cameras actually roll on this spinoff (unlike the last couple of attempts). 

We'll be sure to keep you updated as we learn more about plans for The Winchesters
