The Supernatural panel is always a highlight of San Diego Comic-Con and 2018 was no different. While this year didn’t feature a live performance by Kansas, the cast and creators, including Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Mischa Collins definitely were on hand to pull out all of the stops!

Things kicked off with a highlight reel of the show’s impressive thirteenth season, which featured a Scooby Doo episode, a Wayward Sisters backdoor pilot episode, and a finale that found Michael taking over Dean’s body.  Thanks to EW, you can check that out below!

Despite the fact that the series only started shooting last week, the crew came with an exclusive look at Jensen Ackles’ highly anticipated performance as Michael. To say that fans were impressed would be a huge understatement. They were raving about his performance and ability to embody this new challenging character.

Ackles also noted that season 14 is going to be all about Michael, with Dean on the sidelines.

Of course, with Dean gone, Sam will be able to step up his leadership skills, according to Jared Padalecki.

At one point during the panel, Mischa Collins got up and handed out voter registration cards to those in the crowd over 18.

He also teased fans that there will be more Jack and Castiel in season 14.

The upcoming season will also feature a milestone episode for the series – #300. Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles have their own idea for how they want to celebrate.

The cast also touched on just how the show has become a family and how meaningful it is when people tell them that they grew up with the show.

Padalecki reflected on what he’s learned about himself the past 13 years.

Ackles talked about the one thing that he’s going to steal from the set and it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone.

Supernatural returns for season 14 on The CW Thursday, October 11!
