The Door Is Open For A The Boys Cameo From Your Other Favorite Supernatural Star

If saving people and hunting things is still the family business, then there's no reason that Sam and Dean Winchester wouldn't make perfect additions to the superhero-killing squad over on "The Boys." Homelander may not suck blood, but his milk addiction is much more bone-chilling. Plus, he definitely has a body count to rival the toughest demons on "Supernatural." That seems like more than enough to inspire the wrath of a Winchester! This is all just wishful thinking, though — just because "The Boys" showrunner Eric Kripke, is also the creator of The CW's "Supernatural," doesn't mean he can summon his old stars at will and give them starring roles in his subversive superhero series... JK, of course, he can! He already has!

Winchester reunion, when?

The third season of "The Boys" features none other than Dean Winchester himself, Jensen Ackles. But instead of playing an unlikely hero in flannel, Ackles is suiting up as Solider Boy, a dark twist on Captain America who has arrived to take on Homelander, but mostly to take revenge on the heroes who wronged him. The vicious and politically incorrect "hero" is a real heel turn for Ackles, who spent 15 years saving people from monsters on the CW. With Ackles having made his big debut on "The Boys" during last week's three-episode premiere, it was only a matter of time before people started asking the obvious question: is there another Winchester cameo around the corner?

Ackles and Padalecki shared the screen for an incredibly long stretch of 15 seasons, but fans are still anxious to see them reunite. Sure, there was a little little bit of drama (*cough* that was proclaimed via Twitter for the whole world to see *cough*) after the whole "Supernatural" prequel debacle, but that's ancient history now! Once an onscreen brother, always an onscreen brother! Ackles is game for a reunion but knows that Padalecki hasn't slowed down since their days in the Impala. When asked about a possible Padalecki appearance, he told Variety,

"As I think we all know, Jared's pretty busy starring in his own show, producing a spinoff of that show. He's certainly got his hands full."

The growing franchise Ackles refers to is Padalecki's "Walker: Texas Ranger" reboot, which is currently thriving over on The CW, with a third season on the way and a spinoff in the works: "Walker: Independence." As an executive producer on both series, Padalecki is reasonably busy, but that's no reason not to make time for killing supes. So what did Kripke have to say on the matter? "I would love a Jared cameo!"

Saving people, hunting things AND killing Homelander

The Padalecki cameo is looking like a real possibility! But only is the ranger can clear his schedule. Kripke told Variety,

"He's always welcome on the show. Up to now, the guy is on a network show that has however many episodes — like, a lot more than eight. So he's working all year and now he's producing his spinoff and he's got a whole empire going on over there. He's been a busy man. And it's been hard to even figure out any time that he's free. But if he was free and found himself currently unemployed, I would put him on 'The Boys' in a heartbeat."

I think I speak for us all when I advise Padalecki to fake a cough Karen Smith-style so he can use up those sick days to hang out with The Boys! Why, you ask? Because the people of the world want what the CW failed to provide: Sam Winchester cursing! And although there's a very alarming possibility that the depraved minds behind "The Boys" might have Ackles and Padalecki share a scene so disturbing that viewers will never see the Winchester brothers the same ever again ... it would still be pretty fun to see Padalecki take a dip in the supe pool. Take a moment to consider just how long those two spent over on The CW. In all its 15 years, "Supernatural" got pretty creative about finding ways to alter Sam and Dean's storylines, personalities, and even the souls inhabiting their bodies, but even with occasional variety to keep things interesting, the actors were still playing the same characters for over a decade. Any opportunity to see them try something new is well worth the time. Doing that while also reuniting them? It's too good to turn down. And as long as folks from the CW are looking for a place at Vought, why not check in with their old pal, Misha Collins? It never hurts to have an angel on standby.
