Jensen Ackles Gets Started On "The Winchesters Finale

The Winchesters" finale gave "Supernatural" viewers a major twist

A lot of fans were initially unsure about the concept of a prequel to the series.

The conclusion, however, showed that it was not actually a prequel at all.

The story instead takes place in a different timeframe.

Jensen Ackles, who plays Dean Winchester, says it "furthers the mythology."

"It would have been a fool's endeavor to try to create a box with the show's creations on Supernatural," he explained.

He explained that they had to write the story "completely distinct, separate thing."

"The Winchesters" has yet to be renewed for a second season.
