SUPERNATURAL Star Jared Padalecki Says He's "Gutted" About Sam Not Being Included In THE WINCHESTERS

Last night, the news broke that Jensen Ackles is developing a Supernatural prequel which will see him return as Dean Winchester. Well, no one told Jared Padalecki, and it sounds like he's pretty upset...

The CW has given a script commitment to The Winchesters, a Supernatural prequel series focusing on John and Mary Winchester. Jensen Ackles is returning as Dean Winchester to narrate the events of the show, while the actor - who will next be seen as Soldier Boy in The Boys - is also set to produce. 

Unfortunately, no one told Jared Padalecki. The actor played Sam Winchester in The CW series, and after congratulating his old co-star, he revealed that he first heard the news on Twitter and admitted to being "bummed that Sam Winchester had no involvement whatsoever."

Padalecki, who now stars in and produces Walker, later said he was "gutted" by the news. 

This is definitely a surprising reaction, though he likely feels just as much ownership over Supernatural as Ackles. Seeing as Dean will narrate the story of his parents from his perspective, it's not as if Sam is necessary to The Winchesters, but there might have been a better way to let Padalecki know. As of right now, Ackles has yet to respond publicly to his former co-star's comments.

The news of a prequel series has been met with a lot of different responses, especially as much of John and Mary's story has already been told via flashbacks in the main series.
