Alice Jester immediately reported the great news on The WFB, describing the premise of each series and the producers responsible for bringing these ideas to pilot. The news was quickly spread throughout social media by major media outlets, including Variety, Entertainment Weekly and Deadline.
We couldn’t be happier that Robbie Thompson scripted The Winchesters pilot, and joins Jensen and Danneel as Executive Producers. Reflecting on his time with Supernatural, The WFB published an exclusive 4-part interview with Robbie about his episodes, writing style and love of Supernatural. Earlier in his time with the show, we profiled Robbie’s work in television and his first few years as a Supernatural writer.
