Throughout production there was some worry about living up to the fan’s expectations. One of the film’s stars spoke to PEOPLE saying, “We want to make sure that the fans are so happy with the product. We care so much about what the fans want because we know it means so much to them.”

Balls! Other than Dean, we are currently not seeing any more of the original cast in The Winchesters. However, all the producers are definitely up to having them join Supernatural’s spinoff. Ackles told Entertainment Weekly during an interview, “We have names that are on the table of like, ‘How can we get to this [person in a way] that makes sense.”
