Jared Padalecki Is 'Gutted' About 'Supernatural' Spinoff: 'I'm Gutted,' He Says.

Jared Padalecki appears to be upset about a "Supernatural"-related project that he was apparently not informed about, but fans believe it's a joke or that he's been hacked.

The actor, who played Sam, one of the show's two main characters, sparked outrage on Thursday when he responded to a tweet from co-star Jensen Ackles, who played Padalecki's brother, Dean.

Ackles' tweet was a link to a Deadline report about a "Supernatural" spinoff in development at The CW, titled "The Winchesters," which is apparently a prequel focused on Dean and Sam Winchester's parents. Ackles is reportedly signed on to executive produce and narrate the new show.

Padalecki stated in a tweet that he only learned about the news through Twitter and that he is disappointed that his character had "no involvement whatsoever."

Dude, I'm happy for you. I wish I had heard about this somewhere other than Twitter; I'm excited to watch, but disappointed that Sam Winchester isn't involved in any way. https://t.co/bAcEvFKM7p — Jared Padalecki (@jarpad) June 25, 2021

Padalecki doubled down after fans questioned whether the remark was a bad joke, indicating that he wasn't joking and saying he's "gutted."

No, it isn't; this is the first I've heard of it, and I'm devastated. https://t.co/1i8eC8YAdV — Jared Padalecki (@jarpad) June 25, 2021

Despite Padalecki's assurances, many fans questioned his sincerity, with one tweeting that the fandom is aware of "how close our boys are. You can't fool us." Another speculated that he was "hacked."

Padalecki and Ackles, who are good friends, frequently joke with each other — and fans were skeptical of Padalecki's alleged lack of knowledge due to comments the two made earlier this year during a virtual convention panel discussion.

In that conversation (which begins around the 24:00 mark below), Ackles discussed new projects he was working on with his production company related to "Supernatural," to which Padalecki added that his character from the show will "absolutely" be a part.

Ackles later elaborated on the new show, telling Deadline, "After 'Supernatural' wrapped its 15th season, we knew it wasn't over, because, as we say on the show, 'nothing ever really ends, does it?"

He and his co-producer “knew the first story we wanted to tell was the story of John and Mary Winchester, or rather the ‘Supernatural’ origin story. I always felt like my character, Dean, would have wanted to know more about his parents’ relationship and how it came to be, so I love the idea of having him take us on this journey.”

Stardia's request for comment was met with silence from Padalecki and Ackles.
