Meet the young versions of Mary and John Winchester.
Meg Donnelly, of ABC’s “American Housewife”, has joined the “Supernatural” prequel series “The Winchesters” on The CW as Mary Campbell, who will later become Mary Winchester, the mother of Sam and Dean.
Meanwhile, most recently in the Paramount+ film “The In Between,” Drake Rodger stars as John Winchester, the hunter father of the “Supernatural” brothers, a character played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan in the Mothership series.
Here is a character description of 19-year-old Mary: “Campbell has been fighting the forces of darkness since childhood. After losing someone close to her, the hardened fighter considers quitting the family business — until her father’s disappearance and the arrival of newcomer John Winchester force her to lead a new team.”
And here is the description of the young John Winchester character: “Recently returning from Vietnam, the selfless and down-to-earth John Winchester finds a new mission at home, where traces of his father’s past lead him to a secret organization and an all-new war as a fighter .”
“Winchester” is described as “before Sam and Dean, there was John and Mary. Told from the perspective of narrator Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles), “The Winchesters” is the epic, untold love story of how John met Mary and how she turned everything upside down. stake to save not just their love, but the whole world.”
As previously reported by TheWrap, Ackles and his wife and fellow SPN alumnus Daneel Ackles are executive producers through Chaos Machine and their overall deal with WBTV. Robbie Thompson is also an executive producer. Glen Winter directs the pilot and is an EP of that episode. The show is produced by Chaos Machine Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Studios.
Donnelly is represented by ICM Partners, Silver Lining Entertainment and attorney Chad Christopher.
Rodger is represented by Clear Talent Group, 22Talent and Impact Artists Group.
Last month, The CW announced that it had ordered a pilot for “The Winchesters.” Two other pilots were also ordered – “Gotham Knights” and “Walker: Independence”, the latter from “SPN” alum Jared Padalecki.
