It has been years since the Supernatural family reunited with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, but fans shouldnt write the actor off from the series entirely. As it turns out, the only thing standing between Morgan and a Supernatural cameo is the right story.
Over on Twitter, the actor got fans buzzing when he teased his Supernatural interests with fans during a Q&A. After Morgan was asked if hed consider playing John Winchester again, the actor had this to say:
Supernatural fans have been treated to several heroic returns from dead characters over the course of The CW dramas 14 seasons, but theres one that has remained forever elusive: Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sams (Jared Padalecki) father, John Winchester (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).
In the Season 2 finale, we saw the ghost of Papa Winchester escape from hell to help kill the demon Azazel, whom hed spent his whole life hunting down to avenge his wifes death. After that, it seemed like his spirit was finally at peace. Although weve gotten callbacks to him in the years since and even seen younger versions of him, weve never seen Jeffrey Dean Morgan as John Winchester in the flesh (so to speak). Its not exactly a surprise considering Morgan has had a successful career post-Supernatural, so nailing him down for a cameo would have been a pretty tall order.
During a Q&A on Twitter on Monday, Morgan was asked whether hed consider playing Papa Winchester again if the opportunity arose, to which the actor replied, “Sure. If story was right.”
Sure. If story was right. Alright folks… Im out! Be well.. and treat eachother how youd like to be treated. ❤️
Its not a exactly an enthusiastic call to action for the minds behind Supernatural to pick up the phone and call him, but its not a no! Considering Supernatural is gearing up for its 300th episode (side note: holy cow), the right story might be just around the corner!
