Supernatural, which began airing in 2005 on The WB, then moved to The CW, drew in a fierce fan base over 15 seasons. With Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles as the iconic Winchester brothers, Sam and Dean, battling all sorts of supernatural foes. After wrapping in 2020, talk of a revival stirred up, with Padalecki mulling over the chance to step back into Sam’s shoes.

In a conversation with Collider, Jared Padalecki delved into the potential for a reunion while discussing the latest season of Walker, his series following Supernatural. Stirring speculation at a late 2023 convention, Padalecki and Ackles left fans pondering their next project. After 15 years of saving people and hunting things, the journeys of Sam and Dean Winchester concluded, albeit not in the way fans had envisioned. Even the most devoted fans found the finale wanting, igniting enthusiasm for the possibility of a reboot.

Padalecki responded to inquiries about a potential supernatural reunion by emphasizing that it’s not a matter of lack of serious consideration but rather a question of timing and availability. He explained that both he and Jensen feel deeply about the show they worked on together for 15 years, and they don’t want to undertake a reunion simply for the sake of it. They’re not interested in hastily producing content by cramming in shoots during brief windows of availability.

Padalecki elaborated further, stating that if and when Supernatural returns, it will be a project driven by passion, with every effort made to stay true to the series’ canon, fandom, story, and characters. He emphasized that it is a resounding yes. However, the uncertainty lies in their availability—he doesn’t know when he or Jensen Ackles will be free. Nonetheless, his commitment to the possibility remains unwavering.

In discussing the potential return of Supernatural, Padalecki also considered the format it might take, whether as a show, limited series, or movie. He expressed that he had yet to dwell much on the medium, focusing instead on the story’s essence. Padalecki clarified that if he and Jensen discuss the direction for Sam and Dean’s continuation and agree on a compelling narrative and resolution, they are open to any format—be it a movie, limited series, or even a flip book available on Amazon. However, he stressed his protective stance regarding the Supernatural franchise, prioritizing the story’s integrity above all other considerations.

When contemplating a Supernatural reunion, its 15-season legacy casts a long shadow. Throughout its run, fans frequently departed, mainly as it was initially intended to conclude with Season 5’s “Swan Song.” Despite occasional deviations, the show ultimately rediscovered its momentum, delivering standout performances even after the 5th season.

Hence, for any Supernatural reboot to succeed, it must bring innovation and novelty. Given the Winchesters’ extensive experience combating diverse monsters, a captivating storyline is indispensable for its resurrection, as Padalecki shrewdly emphasized during his interview. This necessity is amplified by the tepid reception to its inaugural spinoff, The Winchesters prequel, which failed to strike a chord with viewers and met its demise after a single season.
