The Controversy
Jared Padalecki
And Jensen
Ackles Explained
After the end of “Supernatural” in 2020, details began to emerge about a prequel called “The Winchesters” that would focus on the parents of Sam and Dean. While the news caused much excitement among fans, it also sparked some conflict between the brothers’ actors, Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles.
"The Winchesters" will not only have Ackles reprise his role as Dean, but it will also be executive produced by Chaos Machine Productions, a company Ackles owns with his wife. However, nobody approached Padalecki about this project, leading to his understandable sense of disappointment.
Fortunately, Ackles and Padalecki quickly had a good talk about the matter, putting their brotherly relationship back on track. While it remains to be seen if Padalecki will appear on “The Winchesters,” fans will be content to know that harmony has been restored between their favorite onscreen siblings.
