Will Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki reunite in this TV show?
Grab some salt and the keys to the Impala because the Winchesters have returned as of yesterday! Jensen Ackles is set to direct an episode of the CW’s Walker, where his former co-star Jared Padalecki plays the main character, giving Supernatural fans the reunion we’ve been waiting for!
Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki are a dynamite duo, both when they’re on camera together or when one is behind it (usually Jensen). Therefore, we can’t wait to see what magic is made on the Walker set with Jensen Ackles and Jared Padaleki.
Naturally, the announcement of this reunion of Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki sent Twitter into a happy & chaotic tailspin. We hunted through the threads to find more information and the best reactions to this reunion. Grab your Angel blade as we dive into what we know so far about this reunion between Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki.
Carry on, my wayward son
As many of you know by now, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki were most known for a little show called Supernatural, which released its final season just last year (yes, we’re still crying over it, too). Since then, the two have separated to work on vastly different projects.
Padalecki put the supernatural behind him (though trouble still seems to follow) and put on a real badge this time in the CW’s Walker reboot, staring at the titular character. Meanwhile, Ackles exchanged his Angel blade for a cape, coming into The Boys season 3 as Soldier Boy.
Of course, the two have been hoping for a chance to reconnect now that Ackles has wrapped filming for The Boys in Toronto. Though he won’t be joining his best friend on screen, the reunion is still the breath of fresh air fans of Walker need before the second season gets into full swing.
Ackles is set to be directing episode 7 of the second season, an opportunity Padalecki has been hoping for, as earlier Padalecki voiced his hopes that Ackles would join the Walker family in some capacity.
He’s going to need that brotherly love, because Walker plans to get into the thick of it in its second season. With the Del Rio crime syndicate still at large, Walker and friends may be a bit in over their heads as they try to take them down once and for all.
Of course, Ackles’s expert directing will make his episode the one to see, though we may see more of him in the near future on the show, as Padalecki dropped that he’s hoping Ackles will appear in a cameo on the show. While one hasn’t been confirmed yet, we have a feeling the Walker writers will take advantage of having such an amazing duo, leading to us seeing these two on screen together once more.
