Hollywood actor Tom Welling has boarded the cast of Supernatural spin-off The Winchesters.
The prequel series will focus on Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester’s parents, John and Mary, according to Deadline.
Told from the perspective of narrator Dean (voiced by Ackles), The Winchesters is described as an “epic, untold love story of how John met Mary and how they put it all on the line to not only save their love but the entire world”.
Welling will recur as family patriarch Samuel Campbell (originally played by Mitch Pileggi in Supernatural), Mary Campbell’s father, and Dean and Sam’s maternal grandfather.
Supernaturals, which ended in 2020, followed the story of Sam and Dean who hunt demons, ghosts, monsters, and other supernatural beings.
The Winchesters comes from Robbie Thompson, Jensen Ackles and Danneel Ackles, Warner Bros. Television and CBS Studios. The series will premiere on the CW on Tuesday in the US.
