A pilot for a Supernatural prequel series has been ordered, which is set to tell the story of Dean and Sam’s parents Mary and John Winchester.
The show, entitled The Winchesters, will be coming to US network The CW should it be greenlit for series production. It will feature original series star Jensen Ackles reprising his role as Dean Winchester to act as its narrator. So far, he’s the only original cast member slated to return.
