Mary Winchester may not be the only fan-favorite character returning to Supernatural this season!
At Entertainment Weekly‘s PopFest in Los Angeles this past Saturday, a fan asked series stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki if now that Lucifer is back, would Michael be joining him, prompting Ackles to respond:
“I think that one of the great things that the showrunners and the writers have done over the years is that they have brought back some of these fan-favorite characters. And some of our favorite characters. We are the faces of the show, but we’re also fans of the show.”
“When you have a really good character, and not just that but a really good talented person playing that character, getting them to come back is always a treat for us, and I feel like it’s a nice little treat for you guys as well. I will say there are plans this season to bring back a few of those, so stay tuned.”
Speaking of Mary (Samantha Smith), Padalecki and Ackles said that her resurrection has and will affect the brothers’ dynamic. Ackles said, “That’s a unique aspect of this season. There is that X factor of emotional connection,” while Padalecki joked, “Everybody he gets attached to leaves. Every time he gets too attached to something, it ends up going away.”
