A note about the Supernatural Fan Wiki
This wiki was started by DeansGirl666 many years ago. It has always been a free and fan-run site. This site has had a long line of involved fan administrators doing everything from writing detailed episode recaps to starting new discussion threads to contributing to the Metalliblog to posting fan fiction and staffing the roadhouse back when the site's role playing game was operational.
This site was originally hosted by Wetpaint. The site thrived under Wetpaint. Wetpaint was then acquired by WikiFoundry. The age of the site's platform started to become an issue. Admins periodically could not add photos or create or edit pages. At one point the site appeared to be gone for months.
The owner of WikiFoundry generously agreed to a request to help save the site by transferring ownership to the current admins.
In October of 2020, after months of essential help from Alice Jester, a GENIUS of a fan at the Winchester Family Business fan site, this site was updated to a WordPress platform and hosting was shifted to the folks who also host the Winchester Family Business, so that it, and all the work done on it by fans over the years, can live on after the show ends.
This means that not everything survived the migration, but we took as much as we could. The site has a new look and everyone will have to re-register. Your old profile pages HAVE been saved, but must be retrieved by admin and linked to your new registration. Instructions on how to reach admin for that to follow soon!
We hope you've stayed with us through the changeover to a site where all the navigation actually works again. Pages from the old site will be moved to the new format over the course of 2020 and 2021. To start, links will send you to a mix of old-format and new format.
We were determined not to lose this site that has fostered many great discussions and lifelong real-life friendships.
What Jared is Doing Now:
The new CW series "Walker" debuted on Thursday, January 21, 2021 in Supernatural's old day and time slot. Shot in Jared's hometown of Austin, TX, it's a true family drama with a very strong ensemble cast. It had the highest ratings of any CW debut and Jared is not only starring, but also executive producing. Walker started filming in October of 2020, several weeks after Supernatural wrapped. Gen Padalecki stars as Walker's late wife Emily in flashbacks.
The photo below of Jared in the Impala he got to keep after Supernatural ended was shot before Walker aired for an article in Cowboys and Indians magazine. It felt like a nice bridge between Supernatural and his next venture.
The show is definitely family-oriented with PLENTY of family angst.
Jared in a single-layer of clothing is definitely a revelation.
Jared has stated that he's giving Walker and the entire project his whole heart. He's also said in interviews that he knows he'll be saying goodbye to Sam Winchester for a very very long time and does hope that the last day of filming Supernatural is not the last time he'll get to play Sam.
Season two (!!!!) of Walker started airing on the CW the week of October 28, 2021. Richard Speight Jr. is back to direct an episode and Jensen will be directing episode 7.
What Jensen is Doing Now:
Jensen is currently taking on the role of Soldier Boy in season 3 of Eric Kripke's Amazon Prime series "The Boys". Fans of the comic book say that this character is an old-fashioned WWII veteran and the first celebrity superhero in this universe, but he is more like a cowardly take on Captain America.
Many have looked forward to the day Jensen can be in something where he can swear, and this is definitely that (Eric Kripke said it wil be R-rated and there will be "so much swearing") but, ironically, fans of the comic have pointed out that the character he will be playing is something of a throw-back who does not swear because he's from a different era. The character he'll be playing is also bisexual in the comics, or at least up for some attempted career advancement via same-sex relations. And he wears shorts as part of his superhero costume. It should be VERY interesting.
The Boys films in Toronto and season 3 started filming in early February 2021 and filmed through August. Thanks to covid cross-border restrictions, Jensen was been stuck in Canada while filming; having to miss his daugther JJ's birthday for the first time ever.
He has definitely packed on the muscle for this role. His character's body does not look much like Dean's.
At the first Creation con to start up post-pandemic in Denver in October 2021, Jensen revealed that his Soldier Boy character will be introduced naked, being un-frozed from a cryogenic state of suspended animation. He revealed that the audience will see some strategically-placed smoke, but the crew did not! What a first day on the job.
Can't wait to see what Jensen does with this role.
First look at Soldier Boy in his super suit (no shorts after all). Jensen posted that he loves the suit and it has the same boots (different color) he wore as Dean:
On July 2, 2021, Jensen posted these images on Instagram, saying he was up at 3:00 am after a late night of filming, listening to some music from the band Tool, and just "just tryin to cope with shit".
A POSSIBLE FUTURE FOR NEW SUPERNATURAL STORIES ON THE CW:
In June of 2021, Jensen and Danneel Ackles' newly-minted production company, Chaos Machine, announced via an online article that they have a project in the works for a new series produced by them in partnership with the CW currently titled "The Winchesters". The series would be narrated by Jensen as Dean and would explore the backstory of Sam and Dean's parents, John and Mary Winchester.
What thrilled this fan the most was the news that Supernatural writer Robbie Thompson ("Baby", "Don't Call Me Shirley") is on board as writer and producer, something this fan has fervently wished for for years.
Congratulatory posts from other cast members as well as Supernatural creator Eric Kripke followed (since deleted). Kripke tweeted that there were no better hands than Jensen's and Robbie Thompson's to entrust the Supernatural legacy to, except for a third person, who is currently busy "Texas Rangering".
Enthusiasm was dampened almost immediately when said Texas Ranger, Jared, fired off several tweets, including a particularly vehement one to Robbie Thompson that he quickly deleted. Jared asserted that he had been left in the dark on this project and that, while he looked forward to watching the result, he is "bummed" that Sam Winchester has no involvement whatsoever. When asked by a fan online if he was joking, Jared tweeted that no, he wasn't joking, and he was gutted by the news of a Supernatural prequel.
Fan reaction was swift and severe. It is hard to understand how a miscommunication like this could have happened between Jared and Jensen. There was speculation that the announcement was made prematurely in order to get it out ahead of a media leak about the project but that has not been confirmed.
Eric Kripke tweeted an apology (since deleted) saying he thought Jared knew and he had been wrong about that. He also said that Jared and Jensen had talked and worked things out.
Jared tweeted (since deleted) that he and Jensen had a good talk almost immediately after the mishap and that this new project has miles to go before it's a done deal, so it sounds like there is still time for his involvment (direct or supportive) and it may not have been as set in stone as the announcing article made it sound. Jared said that he and Jensen have been down many roads together and sometimes those roads have bumps in them.
Jensen replied to Jared's tweet saying he loved Jared and he was glad they talked. He said that they are both busy, but they are and always will be brothers.
It is this fan's sincere hope that things have, in fact, been worked out. The prospect of a Jensen/Robbie Thompson collaboration with a Supernatural backstory is thrilling. AND "there ain't no me if there ain't no you". Anything Supernatural needs to have the blessing of both brothers. The fans won't be on board if Jared isn't on board as well, even if it's only a supportive role.
This fan is glad (and believes) they are working out any miscommunications and hurt feelings. Supernatural has an incredible history and could have an incredible future in the hands of those who really care about it as all involved here clearly do.
Put friendship and family first. Mistakes happen. Fix them. Keep this great thing and this great Supernatural Family going.
The photo posted by Jared on his birthday in Italy in 2021, thanking fans for all the birthday wishes (and Jensen's reply).
A note about Rust.
In October of 2021, Jensen was incredibly excited to sign on to the Western "Rust". He said he has wanted to be in a Western since he was a kid and signed on to fill in for an unnamed actor who backed out of the project. He filmed for several weeks in New Mexico on this Alec Baldwin helmed project. The plot of the movie was about an accidental shooting and the consequences. Jensen was to play the Marshal. When he talked to audiences at the Denver convention in October of 2021, he was visibly excited to be a part of the project. Just 5 days after he appeared in Denver, cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was fatally shot on set by Alec Baldwin in an accidental shooting while rehearsing a scene. At this time, it appears that the project will not be completed. Jensen posted the incredibly thoughtful post below, putting the focus where it should be. On the woman who tragically lost her life. The photos from the trail ride were taken on the casts' day off just two days before the fatal shooting. She was Jensen's age. Her son is close to JJ's age. I cannot imagine how this affected him. I do hope he'll get another chance at a Western in the future.
