The same day the Winchesters were announced, Jensen Ackles took to Twitter to spread the word. Apparently, it didn’t take long for his Supernatural co-star Misha Collins to find out about the prequel series, which prompted him to open up about his involvement on social media. “Looks like this show would benefit from a time-traveling caped angel. Collins tweeted, trying to sell the Winchesters’ minds to Castiel joining the cast. Judging by the responses, a large number of Supernatural fans would not object to such an addition to the series.
On the other hand, a lot of the responses weren’t too keen on Misha Collins bringing Cass back for the Winchesters. This is largely due to the fact that most of the fans are not interested in the prequel at all. AT Reddit thread by u/Jolly_Comfortable_14, Fans of “Supernatural” joined the idea with their complaints. Some feel that The Winchesters is a disappointing choice for a prequel when so many other characters could have spin-offs of their own, while others fear it would break established Supernatural canon for the sake of entertainment.
The Winchesters arrive October 11, 2022, and for the sake of Misha Collins and those hoping to see more of Castiel, fingers crossed, he appears in a divisive prequel series.
