Jeffrey Dean Morgan returning to Supernatural for 300th episode
Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Walking Dead) will be reprising his role as Sam and Dean Winchester’s father John Winchester in the upcoming 300th episode of Supernatural, IGN has confirmed. The milestone episode will air on The CW on Thursday, February 7, 2019!
“We’re incredibly excited to have Jeffrey back for this milestone episode, and think fans will love what we have planned for his character… and a few other surprise guest stars,” said executive producer Andrew Dabb.
Morgan was last seen on the series in the Season 2 finale. The actor has long said he would love to return to the show, but fitting in a return has proved challenging with his busy schedule. Morgan currently stars as Negan on AMC’s The Walking Dead and has recently worked on movie projects like Rampage and the upcoming drama Walkaway Joe.
Dabb has said that the milestone episode will be a love letter to the show and to the Winchesters. He explained during the Supernatural pressroom at SDCC that we’ve never seen what the citizens of Lebanon, Kansas — where Sam and Dean live — think about these two guys who “come to the bar” and who go “to the laundromat but their shirts are covered in blood.” Basically, the episode will be about Sam and Dean told through the eyes of outsiders.
Supernatural follows brothers Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester. The thrilling and terrifying journey of the Winchester brothers continues in Supernatural‘s 13th season. Sam and Dean have spent their lives on the road, battling supernatural threats that include everything from the demon that killed their mother to the usual vampires, ghosts, shape-shifters, angels and fallen gods rampaging over the land. They’ve come out on top with the help of allies, both human and supernatural, but every victory comes at a price.
Created by Eric Kripke (The Boys, Timeless, The House with a Clock in Its Walls), Supernatural heads into its 14th season, which will consist of 20 episodes, its 300th episode, and airs every Thursday night on The CW at 8:00 p.m. ET. Andrew Dabb and Robert Singer serve as co-showrunners and executive producers.
