The long-awaited crossover between Supernatural and Scooby-Doo and Mystery, Inc is finally premiering on The CW on Thursday, March 29th. But EW has reported that the crossover will be premiered a week early at PaleyFest on March 20th.
Supernatural star Jared Padalecki has this to say to reporters during a recent set visit,“I’m really excited for Scooby-Doo to be part of the Supernatural lore, but I’m more excited for the Supernatural lore to be a part of the Scooby-Doo canon.” He went on to say,“That’s cool for me, you know what I mean? That now there’s a footnote about Supernatural when people are talking about Scooby-Doo. I hope we can do more of it. The meta episodes are great.”
The episode is entitled “Scoobynatural”, and is the first animated episode in the history of Supernatural. Now, it has been teased that a race between the Winchester brothers’ Impala and the Mystery Machine could be happening in the episode.
This episode will be serving as a break for the intense 13th season of Supernatural that is currently happening. Not only that, this season is setting up a lot, including the Winchesters taking care of a child of Lucifer. And it’s simultaneously setting up the Wayward Sisters pilot with a number of reoccurring female guest stars from the show’s history.
Padalecki explained,“I grew up watching Scooby-Doo and I remember when the Scooby-Doo movies came out, and they wanted me to try out for Shaggy.” He went on and mentioned,“I was young, and Lillard’s great — I fought not to do it. I’m a big James Bond fan. Not that I could ever be James Bond, [but if] someone’s like ‘would you try out?’ No, I wouldn’t, cause I wanna watch that as something I enjoy.”
As for Wayward Sisters, Padalecki had told reporters he would love to have Wayward Sisters and Supernatural crossover if Wayward Sisters goes to series.
“I hope to God to do it. We obviously are buddies with all the crossover gangs here,” the actor said. “It’s fun to hear them talk about dad’s on a hunting trip — it gives me chills to hear. I was like I remember reading that in the pilot. And I, Jared, didn’t know anything about Sam or hunting or whatever, but they wanted Sam to know so they had to correct me a few times and be like ‘hey, this isn’t a big surprise to you. You know your dad hunts. It’s not like, he did what? Remember, this your life too’. I was like ‘OK, cool’. Now that it’s flushed out I kind of become a fan of Supernatural and as a fan of Supernatural I would love to help it keep going with the Wayward Sisters and vice versa and have them come back to our show.”
So Supernatural returns on March 29th with the Scooby-Doo crossover, but if you’re going to PaleyFest in March, then you’ll be seeing a week early on March 20th.
