“Good television means good conflict”

The CW has managed to catch lightning in a bottle again! Nearly two decades after the Winchesters first cruised across town in this iconic 1967 Chevrolet Impala with the first season of Supernatural, the franchise is back with a new iteration that captures the heart and spirit of the original series in the most ambitious and exciting new series this fall.

Going through The Winchesters, we are back in the world of Supernatural in the first offshoot of the series – an offshoot that quickly proved to be worth the wait.

The new series travels back in time to take viewers back to the early days of John and Mary Winchester, allowing viewers to revisit the beginnings of the two iconic characters with a look at the adventures that shaped them into the characters we know and love. .

Like with Supernatural, the heart of the show is his relationships but through The Winchesters fans can see a very different relationship from the one we’ve seen play out over the 15 seasons of Supernatural. Whereas Supernatural was all about the relationship between brothers Sam and Dean Winchester and the lengths the couple would go to protect each other, The Winchesters delves into the romance of John and Mary to explore the couple’s love story in ways the original series was never able to fully explore.

The Winchesters Beautifully tells the love story of John and Mary Winchester, something stars Meg Donnelly and Drake Rodger promise won’t come without conflict.

Right off the bat, the writers do a masterful job of starting what we know to be an iconic romance between these two characters, and the chemistry between Donnelly and Rodger is unmatched. The characters spark an instant connection in the first episode and quickly develop an ‘us versus the world’ type dynamic, but just because the couple’s love story kicks off with little conflict doesn’t mean all will go well. .

“I really think it’s a beautiful love story, especially the iteration we’re doing,” Rodger warned of John and Mary’s relationship. “It’s like two people against all odds. The thing I’m going to tease is that good TV means good conflict. I think we’re going to have a lot of those duds.

As is the case in all relationships, communication will be a key factor for the pair and it’s definitely something the pair will struggle with throughout the season. It’s also something that will allow audiences to really see how the two characters feel and has allowed the show to tell the story of their relationship in a truly amazing way.

“I think even with the 70s and time, I feel like communication was definitely harder back then. So I feel like that’s really cool because you see exactly how both characters feel each other, but it’s so real. I think that’s an amazing way to say [their story]added Donnelly.
