What is 'The Winchesters' about?
Set in the 1970s, The Winchesters is narrated by Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) and follows the story of his parents' meeting, falling in love, and fighting monsters. As some fans and critics have already pointed out, the love story of John and Mary Winchester has been told multiple times on Supernatural, either through magic, flashbacks, or time travel.
The most important fact to keep in mind is that Mary initially came from a monster-hunting family, while John Winchester was completely unaware of that life until Mary's death at the beginning of Supernatural. The Winchesters alters this canon, but executive producers Jensen Ackles and Daneel Ackles have asked viewers, per Variety, to have an open mind and see what happens.
The Winchesters premieres on Oct. 11, 2022, at 8 p.m. ET. on the CW.
