Supernatural might be over at the moment, but its fandom is continuing to live on, thanks to a forthcoming prequel.

And now, a prequel that lends its focus on Mary and John Winchester has been finally greenlit and The Winchesters has found its lead actors.

As per a new report by The Hollywood Reporter, Meg Donnelly has been cast as young Mary Winchester whereas actor Drake Rodger will be playing the role of John. These actors will be seen joining Jensen Ackles in the series – who played Dean Winchester in the original series as he is narrating the prequel in The Winchesters.
