Before Sam and Dean, there were their parents, John and Mary. Told from the perspective of narrator Dean Winchester , THE WINCHESTERS is the epic, untold love story of how John Winchester (Drake Rodger) met Mary Campbell (Meg Donnelly) and put it all on the line to not only save their love, but the entire world. When John returns home from fighting in Vietnam, a mysterious encounter sparks a new mission to trace his father’s past. In his journey, he crosses paths with 19-year-old demon hunter Mary, who is also searching for answers after the disappearance of her own father. Together, the two join forces with young hunter-in-training Latika (Nida Khurshid) and easygoing hunter Carlos (Jonathan “Jojo” Fleites) to uncover the hidden truths about both of their families. Their investigation leads them to a rare book emporium whose owner Ada (Demetria McKinney) takes an interest in the occult and could provide the missing pieces to their puzzle. But secrets run deep for both the Winchesters and Campbells, and despite the best efforts of John’s mother Millie (Bianca Kajlich) to protect her son from pursuing a dangerous life of demon hunting, John and Mary are both determined to work together to uphold their families’ legacies while beginning to form a family of their own.
- TV Pulse posted about differences between the original pilot they viewed, and a new version which has been sent to reviewers.
- A positive review from "Nerds and Beyond", who said "From the brilliant casting to the gusto with which Thompson dives right into the story, the gamble has completely paid off. The Winchesters is a confident, entertaining prequel with something new to say, a loving tribute to a beloved series that marks its own territory and more than justifies its existence."
- A video review by CW Spiral raved about the show saying "The Winchesters could be the most enjoyable show on tv of the fall season, perhaps even of the whole season." They added that the show is "shaping up to be damn good television, and I don't mean modern damn good television. I mean damn good television from the early 2000s, and that's the best type of damn good television you could hope for" .
- Vought HQ says that "While the pilot feels different to its predecessor, fans will be able to enjoy the expansion on familiar characters" and "the pilot is a good start and it is clear the dynamic of the group will be what propels the show through the mystery and since they have good chemistry with each other, that promises to be a treat to explore."
- In their review TVPulse called the show "something entirely new but with loving callbacks to the original show" and that "Those tuning in for an hour of supernatural mystery solving and demon slaying will no doubt be satisfied by what they see."
- A review by the Cosmic Circus was generally positive although it expressed concerns about the relationship of the show to the canon of Supernatural.
NEWS AND INTERVIEWS
At Salute to Supernatural Orlando 2022 , Jensen commented on the show and Robbie Thompson creating a queer character in Carlos for #TheWinchesters and says he can't wait to see what Jojo Fuentes does with him: "They are very talented". He also said "I'm excited to see what you guys think of the twists...don't think that we're just tossing away 15 years of established story. It's just how we're going to get to it may not be how you expect it." He related that in his Meet and Greet a fan had commented that John had not been aware of hunting, and he had replied "Oh, we're aware."
