JENSEN Ackles and his wife Danneel are launching the Supernatural prequel spinoff series, The Winchesters.
Since Supernatural first launched in 2005, Ackles and Jared Padalecki starred as brothers Dean and Sam Winchester, but Padalecki learned via Twitter he wasn't tapped for the spinoff series.
Who is Jensen Ackles' wife Danneel?
Danneel Ackles is an American actress and model.
She's famously known for playing the role of Shannon McBain on the daytime soap opera One Life to Live.
The 42-year-old also starred as Rachel Gatina on the CW television series One Tree Hill.
The couple engaged in November 2009 and married less than a year later in Dallas, Texas.
In May 2013, the couple welcomed their first child together, their daughter Justice.
Three years later, Danneel gave birth to a set of twins, Arrow and Zeppelin, who were born in December 2016.
What is the Supernatural prequel spinoff series?
On June 24, Deadline reported that the CW network is working on a Supernatural prequel spinoff series, The Winchesters.
Ackles and Danneel will be executive producing The Winchesters.
Dean Winchester – who's played Ackles in Supernatural – will narrator the series, which will tell the untold love story of the brothers' parents, John and Mary Winchester.
The prequel will also show how John and Mary launched a mission to save the world from demons and ghouls.
Ackles told Deadline: “When Danneel and I formed Chaos Machine Productions, we knew the first story we wanted to tell was the story of John and Mary Winchester, or rather the ‘Supernatural’ origin story.
“I always felt like my character, Dean, would have wanted to know more about his parents’ relationship and how it came to be. So I love the thought of having him take us on this journey.”
What did Ackles' co-star Jared Padalecki say about the upcoming prequel?
Like all Supernatural fans, Padalecki learned online that he was was left out of the upcoming project and took to Twitter to address the news.
“Dude. Happy for you. Wish I heard about this some way other than Twitter,” Padalecki wrote in a retweet of Deadline’s story.
“I’m excited to watch, but bummed that Sam Winchester had no involvement whatsoever.”
When asked by one of his followers on Twitter if his tweet was a joke, Padalecki responded: “No. It’s not. This is the first I’ve heard about it. I’m gutted.”
There's no word on when the prequel series will premiere or who will star as John and Mary Winchester.
