What is the Winchesters release date? If you’re a fan of Supernatural and you’re gutted that the sci-fi series has ended, fear not! You can get your fix of otherworldly beasts and fantastical fiends when The Winchesters hits the small screen, a prequel series which will explore the origins of Sam and Dean’s parents, John and Mary.

The original Supernatural series is considered one of the best TV series of all time and starred Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki as Dean and Sam Winchester, respectively. That show ran from 2005 to 2020, but now, we get to dive into the family history of this magical family once more, as Ackles narrates the story of his mother and father.

We can’t wait to see more mythological monsters and how John and Mary Winchester handle all of this. But first, you probably need to know what The Winchesters release date is, right? And, who will be starring in the prequel series to bring the Winchester family tree to life? We can’t say we’re magic, but we do have all the answers you seek.

The CW, the network that will air The Winchesters, recently announced its fall 2022 slate. The pilot episode will air on Tuesday, October 11, 2022, with each episode airing at the same time every Tuesday hereafter. It is unclear how many episodes there will be of The Winchesters.

The Winchesters plot speculation

While we don’t know too many specific details about what The Winchesters plot will entail, we know for certain that this is a prequel to the original Supernatural story, and will focus on Dean and Sam’s parents, John and Mary.

The series will show us how the two met, fell in love, and how the Winchester family came to be. We can also expect to see them battle a variety of mystical demons and fantastical creatures along the way.

By the sounds of it, both John and Mary’s parents were hunters of mythological beasts too, and the Winchester family clearly has a long history of being mixed up in magic, mystery, and evil spirits.
