After a 15-season run and two failed spinoffs, a new Supernatural prequel is in the works, and more of the original cast wants in.

News broke yesterday that the show’s latest spinoff series, titled The Winchesters, is in the works and will focus on the story of Sam and Dean Winchester’s parents. The show will be produced by Dean Winchester himself, Jensen Ackles, and his wife Danneel Ackles.

Jared Padalecki Says 'Please Don't Send Any Hate' After 'Supernatural' Spinoff Shocked Him

'Wish I heard about this some way other than Twitter,' Padalecki said after the news first broke.

The man behind everyone’s favorite angel Castiel, Misha Collins, threw his hat in the ring on Twitter, saying, “Seems like this show would benefit from a time-traveling angel-in-a-trenchcoat character. Just saying…”

In a show set in the past, Castiel’s time-traveling abilities would justify his appearance. His tweet comes after fellow Winchester brother, Jared Padalecki, stated that he was never contacted about the prequel series.

He followed up by asking fans not to spread any hate towards the show or those involved.

Along with producing, Ackles will reprise his role as Dean to serve as the show’s narrator. “Before Sam and Dean, there was John and Mary. Told from the perspective of narrator Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles), The Winchesters is the 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,” reads the show’s logline, courtesy of Deadline. If Dean will narrate the series, why not have Sam and Castiel join in?

The show will be produced by Warner Bros. Television with Robbie Thompson, who worked on the original series, serving as a writer and executive producer. The Ackles’ have an overall deal with Warner Bros. Television through their company Choas Machine Productions.
