Caution! SPOILERS for The Winchesters the final!
while Supernatural spin off The Winchesters only ran for one season, cameos from the original show made Season 2 better. While the rise of streaming platforms has made series more accessible, one of the unfortunate things about them is that they have contributed. shorter and fewer TV seasons. This means that older series, e.g Supernaturalhad time to find its rhythm and become truly great, a lot of series these days get fired before they get a chance. The Winchesters is an example of this because it had so many opportunities before it was canceled.
The Winchesters Season 1 told the story of how Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam’s (Jared Padalecki) parents met, fell and fell in love, and how Mary worked together to find her father and fight demons and monsters. So they are John Winchester (Drake Rodger), Mary Campbell (Meg Donnelly) and the rest The Winchesters casting learn that their world is under threat from demons called Acrida, and they must be confronted to save the planet. Throughout the series, Dean narrates this story before becoming more involved in the finale, along with several other cameo appearances. Supernatural characters.
The Winchesters Season 2 could tell better stories
But on a larger scale than telling the love story of John and Mary, The Winchesters Season 1 had a lot of exposition to do beyond just introducing John and Mary and the stakes surrounding them, including the series’ place in the franchise. As a result, the main focus of viewers on the series was the mystery or chronology of the universe in which the show took place, especially with series. Relinking canon installed from Supernatural. But in the Season 1 finale, with cameos from Dean, Bobby (Jim Beaver) and Jack (Alexander Calvert), The Winchesters finally established the boundaries of his story.
Because The Winchesters Season 1 ended with the show clarifying its broader niche Supernatural universe, which would have set up Season 2 much more strongly. In addition, since the series clearly defines where the events are taking place, and all the expositional information is taken care of, The Winchesters would finally have had time to focus on developing more story elements. It would also have allowed the series to move forward with more independence Supernatural and truly sets itself apart on its own terms.
The Winchester Season 2 may bring back more supernatural characters
While establishing unique narratives for himself, if The Winchesters Could have been a season 2, it could have had more fun, occasional guest appearances Supernatural characters. Among them are cameos from Sam and Castiel (Misha Collins). The latter would be fascinating to meet outside of their connection to the Winchester brothers, and it would certainly be amazing to see Dean and Sam reunited in the afterlife. At the same time, it would be great to see Jack continue in his new role as God and further develop how he handles his new abilities and responsibilities.
Finally, though Supernatural already depicted the end of John and Mary’s story with the demon Azazel (Fredrik Lehn), The Winchesters it would have been able to develop the story further. With Dean’s journal forewarning of the demon’s plans, it could have been fun watching them try to outwit the demon in a cat and mouse story over the years. Especially since the prequel retconned elements of the story anyway, it could have even surpassed that. Supernatural made for two ravenous hunters and a yellow-eyed demon, and even with the knowledge that Mary must die at the hands of the demon, it creates a very satisfying tragedy.
Supernatural proves the Winchesters need more time
However, this is also with all the potential The Winchestersunfortunately, the series will not get a 2nd season. Good stories often take time, especially prequel series where audiences have to maneuver around established canon while avoiding repeating stories they’re already familiar with. Supernatural It also needed breathing room, because he didn’t really get into his story until a few seasons later, and that frustrated him. The Winchesters did not receive the same grace.
