SUPERNATURAL Stars Jensen Ackles And Jared Padalecki Make Peace After Brief Spat Over THE WINCHESTERS SUPERNATURAL Stars Jensen Ackles And Jared Padalecki Make Peace After Brief Spat Over THE WINCHESTERS

It looked like Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki's friendship could be on the rocks after the former announced plans for a Supernatural prequel, but we're pleased to let you know they've made things right.

Late last night, the news broke that Supernatural star Jensen Ackles is producing The Winchesters, a prequel series that will see him reprise the role of Dean to narrate the story of John and Mary Winchester. Jared Padalecki took to Twitter to express his disappointment that he hadn't been told about plans for the series by his former co-star, and clearly would have appreciated being given the opportunity to return as Sam Winchester. 

In a now-deleted Tweet, the Walker star even took aim at Supernatural co-executive producer Robbie Thompson (who will also produce The Winchesters) by saying, "Et tu brute? Wow. What a truly awful thing you’ve done. #Bravo you coward." So, yeah, it was a pretty messy situation which put something of a dampener on the big announcement about the spinoff. 

Well, the on screen brothers have now made things right, with both men sharing Tweets that confirm they've had a conversation and there's no bad blood. Sam and Dean frequently fell out in Supernatural before putting their differences aside, so it feels somewhat appropriate that the same thing has happened in real life. 

It's easy to see this from both sides: Ackles knows Padalecki is busy with Walker and likely saw this as a project he could tackle, expanding a world he loves. However, Jared no doubt feels the same sense of ownership over these characters and surely would have appreciated being told about the announcement beforehand (it does sound like he could be involved in some way now).

Honestly, we're just glad they've made peace!

Supernatural creator Eric Kripke also shared his thoughts on Twitter, saying: "When @JensenAckles first told me this story, I loved it. He & @DanneelHarris & rthompson1138 are the perfect people to make it. (The other perfect person is too busy Texas Rangering.) Thanks for carrying the torch, guys, go kick it in the ass. Proud of you. #SPN #SPNFamily"

We'll keep you guys updated as we learn more about plans for The Winchesters.

Taylor swift - bad blood plays

Look... Supernatural is not a very good show. I'll never forget thinking "ooh this one's gonna have a DRAGON" and it was just some dude mugging in a JC Penney jacket.
The two brothers seem like cool guys though.

@PapaSpank54 - that show was awesome and you're crazy if you didn't think it was any good considering it was on 15 years
PapaSpank54 - 6/26/2021, 3:08 PM
@blitzburgh - just because it was on for 15 years doesn't mean it was good.
jj2112 - 6/26/2021, 3:19 PM
@PapaSpank54 - The first 5 seasons were pretty good with a well-planned arc and a satisfying conclusion, unlike many shows.
blitzburgh - 6/26/2021, 9:03 PM
@PapaSpank54 - actually it does why would they keep renewing it so they must have been making money off of it
PapaSpank54 - 6/27/2021, 4:17 AM
@blitzburgh - just because people watch it or it makes money doesn't make something objectively good. Even you must know that, I'm sure.

Sam and Dead frequently fell out in Supernatural

That's like 75% of the season finales.
rkshuttleworth - 6/25/2021, 6:31 PM
@Reeds2Much - Typical brothers in stressful situations.
Santanaonfire - 6/25/2021, 3:48 PM
“Sam and Dead” 😂😂😂

Too bad Jensen was already on Smallville, would have been a good pick for Batman in the animated smallville sequel
Nightwing1015 - 6/25/2021, 4:05 PM
@dracula - He could probably still voice him and nobody would know. His Batman voice is very different
Himura - 6/25/2021, 3:54 PM
With Jared's past mental health issues I can see why he reacted in this way towards the news
Nightwing1015 - 6/25/2021, 4:04 PM
@Himura - Even without mental health problems I can completely understand it.

Could have saved everyone all the drama by just telling him you’re doing a show lol. Just lame to not even shoot the guy a text ahead of time.
GhostDog - 6/25/2021, 4:11 PM
Jensen could’ve just told him and wouldn’t have had to have everyone endure all this drama
GeekFreak - 6/25/2021, 4:19 PM
As far as I was aware those two were real life BFFs! Always going out together and doing couple shxt with their wives so now I know that’s not the case I’m cool with this info.

I mean it’s not anybodys business but the people involved. Maybe Jensen didn’t get a text straight away from Jared when Jared got cast in Walker. Maybe the studio jumped the gun with updates on social media? I mean whos business is it other than Jensens and CWS, they clearly aren’t BFFs and old colleagues now so I’m sure he would have told him at the appropriate time. Jared seems like a whiny bitch actor posting his crisis on social media like all the other rich cry babies with nothing real to get upset about again…

I don't like prequels. Move the story forward. New generation. New Winchesters.
abd00bie - 6/25/2021, 6:01 PM
@ElricReturns - Rufus and Bobby adventures please
KingLeonidas - 6/25/2021, 5:05 PM
Love has been restored in this world. These two brothers hearts will now be United forever in a bond of brotherly love. #family
MisterDoctor217 - 6/25/2021, 6:13 PM
How do we know this wasn’t a publicity stunt ? I mean they seemed so close and like best friends for life to let this get in the way 🤔
Seems odd Jensen wouldn’t tell Jared.
Idk these Twitter feuds seem vain.
MosquitoFarmer - 6/25/2021, 6:25 PM
Nothing like seeking a little clarification before posting baseless nonsense on social media, only to have to embarrassingly backtrack.
ElricReturns - 6/25/2021, 7:14 PM
@MosquitoFarmer - Jared is known for being sensitive and very emotional. This seems kinda standard for him.

I get why he'd act that way, sure Twitter was probably the wrong platform to go off on but I get it.

As for this prequel.... I loved Supernatural from season 1-3 then it got too religious for me haha, like I liked the creepy Yellow Eyed Demon story that ran through the first few seasons. Loved the whole always one step behind dad and when each episode was something different with a different monster or type of demon.

Then the angels came, came again, and stayed. Every episode was picking up after the last talking about God and so on, I lost track fairly quick and was gutted. Plus don't we know everything we Need to know before episode one starts anyway? I'll give the first episode a watch and hopefully my mind is changed.

I really like how people who have played siblings for so long actually form a bond. Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley have just opened their Whiskey brand called "Brother's Bond".
solskulldeath - 6/26/2021, 3:06 AM
Supernatural was good until season 4. Now they want to do the prequel. The winchesters? Now about what? His father's journey?
xHollywoodx - 6/26/2021, 5:45 PM
Sounds like their PR / management needed a fake fight to drum up attention for the Winchester Prequel that nobody asked for. If they're gonna continue to play in this sandbox they should develop new characters and new stories. Bring something new and different to the Supernatural Universe.
