The return of fan-favorite characters could mean younger versions of beloved “Supernatural” characters popping up midway (or familiar faces, like that of Sam, could appear for an episode or two), or the appearance of ageless beings, such as the angel Castiel. Castiel has been an integral part of “Supernatural” ever since his arrival in season 4, and divine intervention has been an important plot point in terms of John and Mary‘s union. This naturally begs the question as to whether Castiel or any other angel — such as Michael, Raphael, or Metatron — could be making a comeback in the prequel series.
When TVLine asked Ackles whether angels will play a role in the prequel, the actor neither confirmed nor denied the assumption: “Ooh, that is a really good question, and TBD,” the actor said. Well, that means anything could happen!
Here’s the official synopsis for “The Winchesters:”
“Mary is 19 years old and has been fighting the forces of darkness since she was a child. After losing someone close to her, the hardened hunter considers quitting the family business — until her father’s disappearance and the arrival of newcomer John forces her to lead a new team. John has recently returned from Vietnam. Selfless and clear-headed, he finds a new mission back home, where traces of his father’s past lead him to a secret organization and a whole new war as a hunter.”
“The Winchesters” is expected to premiere on The CW later in 2022.
