Jensen Ackles answers the biggest question “Supernatural” Season 11 team ever had; Is John Winchester returning in the newest season of CW series? Read on for more details.
The 37-year-old actor had been cornered by the press. They gave him no choice but to respond to the question whether Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s character, John, has a possibility to have a comeback in the eleventh season of “Supernatural.”
A month ago, Morgan admitted in his interview with TVLine that he definitely loves to reprise his role in the original series of CW. His character plays as Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean’s (Ackles) father. It’s not really a big role, but it is an important character in the show. It was why maybe a comeback would not harm the series.
Rumors about John’s comeback started when the series is prepping up for the new season, but it seems like it will stay as one of the biggest questions in “Supernatural.” On the other hand, Morgan reveals that there is no official talk yet.
The 49-year-old actor also added that even though he is not in the series anymore, he did not lose contact with his two on-screen sons, Padalecki and Ackles. It was because they are very good friends.
On the other hand, when Ackles was asked whether the “Supernatural” family already talked about John’s comeback. The actor calmly responded that Morgan’s availability must work organically with the show’s writers and they can find a way to bring his character back in the series when it makes sense. He also added that he’s sure Morgan and the writers themselves would love to do that.
However, in his Pop Sugar interview at the 2015 San Diego Comic-Con, Ackles did not give any assurance that there will be “John” anytime in the near future.
Meanwhile, Ackles also talked about his directing experience in the series. He has once again given an opportunity to direct an episode assigned to him. He proudly stated that having a with the show’s fans inspires him to carry out certain things with characters or story lines. He described that the “Supernatural” fans are an amazing resource to have around.
The series actor and director further teased the fans, by saying that the premiere episode of “Supernatural” Season 11 will be straightforward and expositional. He added that there will be a lot of progress when it comes to the show’s new mythology called “The Darkness.” There will be more information on the new big bad villain and how him and his brother. Meanwhile, Sam are going to deal with the situation after the Darkness got released at the end of season 10.
