Three years after the conclusion of Eric Kripke's Supernatural, the beloved cast reunited in support of the ongoing SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes. The fantasy drama, which aired from 2005 to 2020, followed the thrilling adventures of brothers Dean and Sam Winchester, played by Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki. The Winchester brothers traveled across the U.S. in their iconic 1967 Chevrolet Impala, battling spirits, vampires, and demons, all while uncovering the secrets of their father's past.

However, Padalecki showed his support from afar, sharing a picture on Instagram of himself and his wife Genevieve Padalecki, who portrayed Ruby in season 4, holding a SAG-AFTRA sign. He expressed his love and support for the cast, writers, and family members who participated in the strike.
Other cast members, such as Felicia Day, Chad Lindberg, Rob Benedict, and Lauren Tom, also took to social media to share their experiences of the event. Day posted a video highlighting all the cast members who showed up, Lindberg shared a video of the crowded area, Benedict posted a group photo, and Tom shared zoomed-in photos with Misha Collins.
Supernatural's 15-season legacy lives on in the hearts of its devoted fanbase. The show recently had a spin-off called The Winchesters, but unfortunately, it was cancelled after just one season. While Supernatural showcased meticulous plot detail and garnered a dedicated following, some of its signature elements, such as the 1967 Chevrolet Impala, were not initially part of Kripke's vision. The cast's reunion for the strike serves as a reminder of why the actors and writers are fighting for fairer wages, better working conditions, and residuals in the entertainment industry.
