The Winchesters is hosting a reunion of sorts with his latest casting news: Tom Welling is joining supernatural The spin-off was announced during a panel at New York Comic Con on Sunday.
Welling is set to play Samuel Campbell, Mary Campbell’s father, and Dean and Sam’s maternal grandfather. Welling, of course, played Clark Kent on The WB/CW’s Kleinvillea series in which executive producer/supernatural Co-leader Jensen Ackles starred in 22 episodes.
The prequel, which premieres Tuesday at 8:7c on The CW, follows the parents of Dean and Sam Winchester (played by The in-between‘s Drake Rodger and American housewife‘s Meg Donnelly) as they fall in love and hunt monsters together in the 1970s. The series is described as “the epic, untold love story of how John met Mary and how they risked everything to save not just their love but the entire world.” It is told from the perspective of their eldest son, Dean, where Ackles takes over the narration.
During a recent virtual panel for the spin-off, writer/showrunner Robbie Thompson hinted as much supernatural Fans could expect to see “some very familiar faces… in an episode we’re filming in a few days.”
“And then some more that I can’t even reveal. Hopefully there is someone who is also on the zoom at some point. I’m looking at you Ackles,” the EP added with a laugh. “And we also have plans to not only bring back some of our familiar faces, but also younger versions of the characters that we may not have seen before.”
