- Stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles are hinting that there may be more Supernatural adventures in store for the Winchester siblings.
- The actors have teased the possibility of revisiting the series and are having discussions about potentially continuing the story.
- Jensen Ackles has expressed his willingness to step back into the role of Dean Winchester and has even proposed a spin-off series concept.
Could more Supernatural be headed our way? Stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles are implying that there may be more stories to tell involving the Winchester clan. Padalecki and Ackles starred in the CW series as Winchester siblings Dean (Ackles) and Sam (Padalecki), who, following in their father’s footsteps, hunted down evil supernatural creatures like monsters, demons, and even fallen gods while trying to save innocent people. The show concluded its 15-season run in 2020, and the finale saw both characters die and reunite in heaven. Despite that, there could be more Sam and Dean adventures left to tell.

Per Collider, the actors teased revisiting the series during an appearance at the Creation Honolulu Convention, something that has been rumored several times in the past. When asked what he thought Sam and Dean would be up to now, Padalecki said:
“I have some ideas, and I hope that now that the writers are back, and the actors are back, that we all get together… “
“Stay tuned on that. There are some conversations regarding that conversation that are being had.”
Whether Supernatural will return for a 16th season or some kind of special remains to be seen, but Ackles seems to have an idea of how the continuation could unfold. Last year, the Gen V actor told Syfy Wire:
“I have this lofty dream of when, after things have settled, we’ll tackle one more case as Sam and Dean. [Maybe] a nice 10-episode short-order for HBO Max – I’m just saying. Like a whole ‘True Detective’ meets ‘Supernatural.’ It’s right there.”
Has Supernatural Just Been on Pause?
Jensen Ackles has never shied away from expressing his willingness to step back into the shoes of Dean Winchester. With over 300 episodes, Supernatural achieved things that most genre shows can only dream of, but Ackles previously suggested that despite the definite end of the Winchesters in the season 15 finale, he did not really see it as the end of the series. While speaking to CinePOP, Ackles said:
“Touching on rebooting ‘Supernatural,’ yeah, I don’t think that was something — I don’t think Jared and I hung up the boots, so to speak, as a permanent move. It was more of like, 15 years, we need to just press pause. It’s a long time, and come up for air and see what that looks like, and this is what it looks like. But what the future holds — yeah, I definitely think he and I would be up for talking about that.”
Post-Supernatural, Ackles reprised the role of Dean for The Winchesters, a prequel spinoff set in the 1970s that centered on the untold love story between Sam and Dean’s parents. Ackles served as the series narrator and executive produced the show, which was canceled after just one season. He has also appeared in The Boys and Gen V (which reunited him with Supernatural creator Eric Kripke), and Big Sky. He has also voiced Bruce Wayne/Batman for several animated DC features.
Padalecki currently stars in another CW series, the neo-Western Walker (a reboot of the 1990s Chuck Norris-led series Walker, Texas Ranger), which was renewed for a fourth season in May. Aside from starring as the titular character, he serves as an executive producer for the series.
Supernatural is streaming on Netflix, while The Winchesters is streaming on Max.
