If you were a fan of Supernatural, you are going to be excited to learn that The CW has ordered the new series ‘The Winchesters‘ to pilot! The Winchesters is a prequel to the original show, it will follow the life and adventures of John and Mary Winchester and will be produced by Supernatural alum Jensen Ackles and his wife Danneel Ackles. The show will be narrated by ‘Dean Winchester’ himself!
It now appears the project is closer to becoming a reality as The Wrap reports that The CW has ordered a pilot for The Winchesters. The series is produced by Ackles and his wife Danneel Ackles, with the character of Dean Winchester serving as the series’ narrator. Currently, no casting announcements have been made, but with the pilot order, it is likely to begin soon.
While the series pilot has been ordered, that is not official confirmation that the series will happen. This is the second major attempt for The CW to spin-off Supernatural. Both Supernatural: Bloodlines and Wayward Sisters were ordered as backdoor pilots in the original Supernatural run, but neither spin-off materialized. The CW also recently had a high-profile pilot, Powerpuff, that was put on hold and reworked after poor reaction to the script leak, and currently, no word has been made on the status of the pilot.
