The CW has released the synopsis for “ScoobyNatural”, the upcoming sixteenth episode of Supernatural‘s thirteenth season.
Now, as the title suggests, this episode is the long-awaited crossover with Scooby-Doo. And this is something the fans have been waiting for about a year now. While this synopsis doesn’t reveal much about the episode’s plot, it does hint the Winchester brothers (and Castiel) will join the Mystery Machine Gang to solve a “ghostly mystery.”
After a quite a lot of updated were released, a clip for the episode was released. And according to really plot details, the crossover will be brought on by Sam and Dean being gifted a magical television, which ends up sucking them inside a Scooby-Doo cartoon.
“Once they get over their amazement at being in the cartoon, two things happen,” co-showrunner Robert Singer said in a recent interview. “They say, ’We’ve been in a situation like this before with the Trickster and I think we’re supposed to play this out.’ And then they realize they’re in a Scooby-Doo cartoon, which makes Dean incredibly excited because Scooby-Doo was his favorite cartoon growing up.”
While the episode sounds weird on paper, the fans have grown to pretty excited for it, and to see how these two franchises blend together.
“It’s going to be an episode of Supernatural with Scooby-Doo in it,” co-showrunner Andrew Dabb teased late last year. “It’s not going to be an episode of Scooby-Doo with the guys in it.”
