DAYS Alum Jensen Ackles on ‘The Winchesters’ Inability to Find New Home is a Case of ‘Unfortunate Timing’

Former Supernatural, Big Sky, and Days of our Lives star, Jensen Ackles (ex-Dean, ex-Beau, ex-Eric) took to social media on Saturday when the news broke that his series, The Winchesters, in which he executive produced, has run out of options to find a new home.

The show which aired for one season on the CW was a prequel to Supernatural.   In an update, The Winchesters producing studio, Warner Bros, attempted to find another network or streaming partner to move forward with the series after its cancellation.

Now comes word that all avenues have been exhausted.  All this, even though a #SavetheWinchesters campaign led by Ackles, himself, was attempted to bring some attention and heat on the show.

Jensen expressed his ‘thanks’ to the viewers and cited the current WGA writer’s strike as one of the main contributing factors to making the search for a new home for the series extremely daunting.

Ackles shared: “To all of you who watched, followed, and supported this story, THANK YOU. And to all those who brought this show to life…I couldn’t be more proud of what we all did together. But as they say…timing is everything. With a massive Network shift coupled with an industry strike…welp…that’s some unfortunate timing. Sleep well dear  @WinchestersOnCW…until we meet again. Somewhere down the road.”

Sure hope The Winchesters can make a return to TV. It was getting started.

Jensen is so cute

I love both series & would appreciate it if they would be shown!!!

I really, really, really hope it comes back. My mom got me into watching Supernatural, and when it was over it broke her heart. And when she passed it broke my heart. Then you gave me the Winchester’s and had to watch, cause I know she would want me too. It’s like watching Supernatural all over again with her in spirit. We loved you guys

I’m really disappointed that The Winchesters was cancelled. I really hope it makes it back on Netflix. Maybe

Have been a fan from the begin I can’t believe that some other network willnot pick up the new show

Jensen Ackles displayed grace and class with his statement. Hopefully we will get to see him in The Boys. I have been a long time fan and think he is a wonderful actor. I loved the way he and Bobby got together on The Winchester’s. It was also a great prequel to Supernatural. Timing is everything in this life so I guess it just wasn’t meant to be.

The way these networks are cancelling good shows, makes it seem like they’re trying to force us to pay for all of these streaming services, just to watch anything decent.

Me and my husband watch Supernatural. We start at the beginning and watch until season 11 or 12 then start from the beginning again. We have not finished the series yet and don’t know when we will. I’m pretty sure it because it’s so good and we don’t want it to end. We don’t worry too much because we bought the series so we will have it forever. I know we will be watching it when we are 80 or 90. I want to watch the Winchesters when we finally do finish Supernatural so I hope the show keeps going. This are the best series we’ve ever watched. So I know The Winchesters won’t disappoint.

I liked the Winchester prequel.
I hope it can find a home in the future

I loved The Winchester’s. I thought the characters were awesome and the cast did such an amazing job.

The show was really interesting, you just really get into a show and then they cancel them. They need to take a pole with the people. Not the network decide who to cancel. I’m not happy that they took this off the air, I hope it comes back. Jansen is a great actor. They have cancelled so many of my programs now here goes another one.

I recorded and watched every episode of the Winchesters and hated to see the show end. Hopefully in the future Jensen will be able to bring the show back

May they comeback the cast, the writer, the producer, and it needs to go longer for us to know the crew! Hopefully, when these strikes are over and the writers and everyone else on set has comfortably livable pay can it return.

If it returns, it needs a complete overhaul. Stick to cannon and find actors who actually have some chemistry because, as a fan of Supernatural from the beginning, The Winchesters was bad. I mean, really bad. It would also benefit from better writers. The whole thing came across as a rushed mess, which is sad.

Writers Strike Comes to an End; Leadership Votes To Conclude Work Stoppage

It’s over! After 148 days, the 2023 Writers strike will go down as the second longest in WGA union history, only a labor stoppage in 1988 was longer.

The strike will officially come to end on Wednesday at 12:01am PT.  This was due to a vote from the guild’s leadership that now has authorized its over 11,500 members to return to work.

That means: pitching and selling scripts, taking meetings, responding to notes, writers’ rooms opening up again, and more, can now restart.

The WGA committee shared that the vote, “Allows writers to return to work during the ratification process, but does not affect the membership’s right to make a final determination on contract approval.” However, WGA East and West voted unanimously to lift the “restraining order” on Tuesday.

As the negotiators shared, the end of the strike doesn’t mean that the tentative agreement that the union reached with producers on Sunday night is a surefire thing: Union members still need to vote to ratify the contract. Union leadership announced on Tuesday that will take place between October 2nd and October 9th.

However, SAG-AFTRA still remains on strike. So, even with the writers returning to work, many productions can’t move forward without their principal actors and performers.

So soap fans, how do you feel about this news for your favorite shows? Glad that the head writers and their writing teams will be back at work as soon as this week from Days of our Lives, General Hospital, and The Bold and the Beautiful? Y&R’s Josh Griffith, who previously had gone Fi-Core during the 2008 strike, remained at the top rated show during the last several months.
