Supernatural’s crossover with Scooby-Doo and Mystery, Inc. is now hitting the TV on March 29, and the audiences at the PaleyFest will get an opportunity to see this a week earlier.
“I’m 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,” star of the series, Jared Padalecki had said.
“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, “Scoobynatural,” will be the first animated installment of this franchise and is set to feature a lot of play including a race between Impala and the Mystery Machine.
The episode will also serve as a break from the 13th season which saw the Winchesters taking care of a child of Lucifer and also setting up the planned Wayward Sisters spinoff which features many recurring female guest stars:
“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,” Padalecki had said.
“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.”
“I hope to God to do it. We obviously are buddies with all the crossover gangs here,” the actor had 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.”
Supernatural will air on Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
