SUPERNATURAL Prequel THE WINCHESTERS Will Air Tuesday Nights on The CW This Fall
Supernatural prequel The Winchesters, about Sam & Dean’s parents John & Mary, will air Tuesday nights at 8 on The CW this Fall.
Jensen Ackles’s Dean Winchester narrates their story.
Dean, Baby and a long stretch of road.
Jensen and his wife Danneel Ackles developed and will produce the series starring Drake Rodger and Meg Donnelly.
The Winchesters is the epic, untold love story of how John Winchester (Drake Rodger) met Mary Campbell (Meg Donnelly) and put it all on the line to not only save their love, but the entire world. When John returns home from fighting in Vietnam, a mysterious encounter sparks a new mission to trace his father’s past. In his journey, he crosses paths with 19-year-old demon hunter Mary, who is also searching for answers after the disappearance of her own father.
Together, the two join forces with young hunter-in-training Latika (Nida Khurshid) and easygoing hunter Carlos (Jonathan “Jojo” Fleites) to uncover the hidden truths about both their families. Their investigation leads them to a rare book emporium, whose owner Ada (Demetria McKinney) takes an interest to the occult and could provide the missing pieces to their puzzle. But secrets run deep for both the Winchesters and Campbells, and despite the best efforts of John’s mother Millie (Bianca Kajlich) to protect her son from pursuing a dangerous life of demon hunting, John and Mary are both determined to work together to uphold their families’ legacies while beginning to form a family of their own.
