Hosted by Richard Speight, Jr. and Rob Benedict (who played the angel Gabriel and God in the series), “Supernatural Then and Now” will feature behind-the-scenes stories with cast, crew and producers of “Supernatural” — from favorite memories on set to conversations about mythology in the writers’ room.

“We are incredibly grateful for the support the fans of ‘Supernatural’ have given us over the years. We’re excited to be a part of this special gift to the fans that will arrive just in time for [one of the series’ protagonists] Dean Winchester’s birthday on January 24th,” said Speight, who also served as a director for the series. “Supernatural” ran for 15 seasons between 2005 and 2020, first on The WB, and then on The CW. “With 327 episodes, there’s a lot to untangle and so many stories to tell.”

The first two episodes of “Supernatural Then and Now,” which both debut Jan. 24, will feature series leads Jensen Ackles (Dean) and Jared Padalecki (Sam). Following episodes will be released weekly on Mondays.

The podcast will be written by Jessica Mason, author of “The Binge Watcher’s Guide to Supernatural: An Unofficial Companion,” and is produced from Story Mill Media.
