The Winchesters (Season 1)
In October 2020, it was announced that Jensen and Danneel had formed a new production company called Chaos Machine and signed a multi-year deal with Warner Bros. Television. Chaos Machine is now on Instagram and Jensen confirmed they would announce their first project soon.
On 24 June 2021, Supernatural prequel - The Winchesters - is in development Jensen and Danneel's production company Chaos Machine Productions. The CW has given a script commitment for the project which will centre on the early life of John and Mary Winchester. Jensen will Executive Produce alongside former co-executive producer and writer for Supernatural Robbie Thompson. The series will be narrated by Dean Winchester (voiced by Jensen). Jensen said of the project:
- “After Supernatural wrapped its 15th season, we knew it wasn’t over. Because like we say in the show, ‘nothing ever really ends, does it? When Danneel and I formed Chaos Machine Productions, we knew the first story we wanted to tell was the story of John and Mary Winchester, or rather the Supernatural origin story. I always felt like my character, Dean, would have wanted to know more about his parents’ relationship and how it came to be. So I love the thought of having him take us on this journey.”
On his Instagram post, Jensen said "Can't wait to share... it's the story I've always wanted to know. We will hit the waypoints that have been set and fill in the rest in a way you never expected. "we got work to do."
