New The Winchesters Trailer Teases a Supernatural Connection

After being a mainstay of The CW for over a decade, the world of supernatural going back to television next month with The Winchesters. The prequel series delves into the origin story of John Winchester (Drake Rodger) and Mary Campbell (Meg Donnelly), the parents of supernatural‘s beloved monster-hunting brothers. A new trailer released for The Winchesters leans in to that connection in a fun way, while also showing a look at the return of Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles), who will narrate the series. Set in the 1970s, The Winchesters tells how John and Mary met, fell in love, and fought monsters together while searching for their missing fathers. The series also stars Bianca Kajlich as Millie Winchester, Demetria McKinney as Ada Monroe, Nida Khurshid as Latika Desai and Jojo Fleites as Carlos Cervantez.

Ackles, who is also an executive producer on the series, recently talked to TVLine about what fans can expectespecially after John and Mary’s story was first explored in a Season 4 episode of Supernatural. As Ackles put it, the series will allow connections to established supernatural lore in “much crazier ways”.

“To be honest, I was like, ‘I don’t know if we can do this,'” Ackles revealed, “and then it took [writer] Robbie [Thompson] and I sat down and thought, ‘Well, we know we have to do this, and we know we have to do that, but if we just connect those dots in a straight line, it’s no fun. That is boring. That’s a simple story. If we connect those dots in a much crazier, wilder way supernatural away, then we’ll have a show.’ So that’s what we did.”

According to Ackles, the canon already established with John and Mary – specifically their lineage as members of the Men of Letters and a family of monster hunters – will be navigated to a unique capability in The Winchesters.

“That’s kind of the exciting thing in my opinion, that the waypoints or the tent poles established on the mothership, as we fondly call it, will be touched,” Ackles added. “But we’re going to get to those waypoints in a way that we probably didn’t expect. And that’s what we’re really having fun with is the story coming together. It’s not the washed version. It’s not the sugar-coated version of how mom and dad met. This is just what really happened.”

“But we do tap into the moments that were discussed and talked about,” Ackles continues, “perhaps in a slightly varied way that’s like, ‘Wow, wait, we knew that was happening, but I didn’t know it was. was. why it happened or that’s how it happened.'”
