What are the Supernatural actors doing now?
After Supernatural ended, the main stars of the show didn’t wait that long to land new acting roles. Read on to find out what projects have kept the Supernatural alums busy after the inevitable conclusion of the CW series.
Just two months after Supernatural concluded, Padalecki returned to The CW to star in Walker, a straight reboot of the CBS series Walker, Texas Ranger that aired on CBS from 1993 to 2001. In the reboot, Padalecki plays Cordell Walker – the role portrayed by Chuck Norris in the original.
Walker is now in its third season. The show airs every Thursday at 8 p.m. ET on The CW. There’s no word yet whether the series will come back for a season 4.
Padalecki also serves as an executive producer on the Walker prequel series Walker: Independence, which is currently airing its first season on The CW every Thursday at 9 p.m. ET. Like its parent series, Walker: Independence is yet to be renewed for another season.
Introduced as the main antagonist in the third season of The Boys, Soldier Boy was America’s first and greatest superhero before Homelander (Antony Starr) and the former leader of the superhero team Payback. He helped good triumph over evil in World War II, but it’s not clear how much of that is true, as rumor has it that his participation in the war was Vought propaganda. He was said to have fought for liberty and justice for all until his disappearance during a botched military operation in Nicaragua.
His disappearance was covered up with a story claiming that he heroically sacrificed his own life to save America from a nuclear power plant meltdown in 1984. But in season 3, fast-forward to the present time, the Boys discovered that Soldier Boy is still alive after they broke into a military facility in Russia. It’s not clear whether Ackles’s Soldier Boy will be back for season 4.
Also in 2022, Ackles guest-starred as Beau Arlen in the second season finale of ABC’s Big Sky. He then returned as a main cast member in the third season of the crime drama, which just concluded in January 2023. The series has yet to be renewed for a season 4.
Ackles has also returned to the Supernatural universe as narrator in The Winchesters, a spin-off series from and prequel to Supernatural. The first season of The Winchesters is currently airing on The CW every Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET. There’s no word yet whether there will be season 2.
On the movie front, Ackles has voiced Bruce Wayne, a.k.a. Batman, in the two-part 2021 film Batman: The Long Halloween and in the 2023 flick Legion of Super-Heroes. He will also star in the upcoming western movie Rust, along with his co-stars Travis Fimmel and Frances Fisher, among many others.
After playing Castiel in Supernatural, Collins appeared as Dylan in the 2021 sci-fi thriller Encounter. In the same year, the actor hosted the PBS docuseries Roadfood, which aims to re-discover America’s regional culture through its iconic dishes.
Collins is set to return to The CW next year for Gotham Knights. Cast as a series regular, Collins will play the role of Harvey Dent in the superhero show. Scheduled to premiere on March 14th, 2023, Gotham Knights opens in the wake of Bruce Wayne’s death with his adopted son Turner Hayes (Oscar Morgan) forging an unlikely alliance with the children of Batman’s enemies when they are all framed for the murder and attempt to clear their name.
Alexander Calvert, who played the dual roles of Jack Kline and Belphegor in the 15th and final season of Supernatural, will next star in Amazon Prime Video’s Gen V. A spin-off of The Boys, Gen V centers on young adult Supes who are tested in The Hunger Games-style challenges at the Godolkin University School of Crimefighting, run by Vought International.
Details about Calvert’s role in the series are being kept under wraps, but it is confirmed that he will be portraying a recurring role. Gen V is expected to premiere in 2023.

Is there a Supernatural spin-off?
Supernatural may have already ended, but the story of the Winchesters is far from over. As mentioned above, a Supernatural spin-off, titled The Winchesters, is currently airing on The CW.
Before Sam and Dean, there were their parents, John and Mary. Told from the perspective of narrator Dean (Ackles), The Winchesters is the epic, untold love story of John Winchester (Drake Rodger) and Mary Winchester, née Campbell, (Meg Donnelly), and how they put it all on the line to not only save their love but the entire world.
When John returns home from fighting in Vietnam, a mysterious encounter sparks a new mission to trace his father’s past. In his journey, he crosses paths with demon hunter Mary, who is also searching for answers after the disappearance of her own father. Together, the two join forces with young hunter-in-training Latika (Nida Khurshid) and easygoing hunter Carlos (Jonathan “Jojo” Fleites) to uncover the hidden truths about both their families.
Their investigation leads them to a rare book emporium, whose owner Ada (Demetria McKinney) takes an interest in the occult and could provide the missing pieces to their puzzle. But secrets run deep for both the Winchesters and Campbells. And despite the best efforts of John’s mother Millie (Bianca Kajlich) to protect her son from pursuing a dangerous life of demon hunting, John and Mary are both determined to work together to uphold their families’ legacies while beginning to form a family of their own.
The freshman run of The Winchesters airs every Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on The CW. The network has yet to order a second season of the series.
