‘Supernatural’ fans rejoice! A prequel to the popular CW series is in the works. Earlier this year The CW ordered a pilot episode of ‘The Winchesters’ to get the ball rolling on this project. There is not a lot of detail out there just yet, but sources say “The Winchesters will tell the epic story of how Sam and Dean’s parents, John and Mary, met and how they put it all on the line to not only save their love, but the entire world.”

Here’s a bit more of the synopsis: “Mary (Meg Donnelly) is 19 years old and has been fighting the forces of darkness since she was a child. After losing someone close to her, the hardened hunter considers quitting the family business — until her father’s disappearance and the arrival of newcomer John (Drake Rodger) forces her to lead a new team. John has recently returned from Vietnam. Selfless and clear headed, he finds a new mission back home, where traces of his father’s past lead him to a secret organization and a whole new war as a hunter.”

While fans will mostly have a new cast to get to know Jensen Ackles will return to narrate the series as Dean Winchester. Ackles will also be executive producing the project along with writer Robbie Thompson.
