I don't know where to start either.  

Jensen Ackles posted a statement on Instagram today that I feel is imperative to mention.  Halyna Hutchins, the director of photography killed on the set of Rust, a western that co-stars Jensen, left behind a husband and 9 year old son.  Jensen and Danneel have donated to an AFI scholarship fund in her name and this post shares more information about that and how we all can donate.  




On Friday, July 23, Comic-Con@Home treated fans to a conversation with the writer and cast from the movie, Batman: The Long Halloween Part 2! Of course this was a huge thrill for Batman fans, but Supernatural fans were overjoyed to hear Jensen Ackles gush about his ultimate dream of playing The Bat! Voicing the part of Batman and Bruce Wayne, Jensen revealed that he recorded his parts in 2018 and has had to wait 3 years for fans to see the finished product!

San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC was conducted virtually over 5-days due to the on-going pandemic) is noted for sharing exclusive releases, sneak-peek trailers and surprise announcements from the most popular pop culture offerings. The Long Halloween, Part 2 panel was timed to build excitement for the animated movie's July 27 release. 
Friday, July 23 marks the beginning of Comic-Con@Home, San Diego Comic-Con's (SDCC) 5-day virtual event that brings pop culture's largest convention into fans' homes!

When it was airing in prime-time, Supernatural had a huge presence at SDCC. Each year, from the moment they stepped foot near San Diego's convention center, Jared, Jensen and Misha were paraded through high profile guest appearances at all the right party boats to non-stop interviews for major media outlets! Autograph lines and the main stage Supernatural Hall H panel (plus the "behind the curtain" press rooms), were so popular with fans, Sunday was nicknamed "Supernatural Sunday" in honor of the massive throng of people who waited overnight for a coveted chance to hear the show's producers and actors talk about upcoming seasons.  The WFB brought these events to you for many years, including the emotional 2019 farewell Supernatural panel. This year, we're all watching our favorite panels on our tiny computer screens instead of the jumbo, surround-sound, AV systems at the convention center, but the show must go on, so I've scoured the massive 5 day schedule to find the line-up of past Supernatural producers and cast members plus Supernatural-adjacent panels at SDCC 2021!
Well, well, some former "Supernatural" producers and staff have certainly gotten somebody's attention today!  The nominees for the 73rd annual Emmy Awards were announced today and Eric Kripke and company found themselves on one very prestigious list for their work on season two of "The Boys," Outstanding Drama Series!  The show received five nominations in total.  Other nominations included Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series ("What I Know" by Rebecca Sonnenshine), Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics ("Never Truly Vanish" co-written by former SPN music director Christopher Lennertz), Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Comedy or Drama Series, and Outstanding Special Visual Effects In A Season or Movie. 
Pinch me...I'm dreaming!!  Seriously, did I read this exclusive from Deadline correctly?  Be still my beating heart. 

Per super TV sleuth Nellie Andreeva, Chaos Machine Productions, the company launched shortly before the end of "Supernatural" by Jensen and Danneel Ackles, has sparked the interest of The CW on a little pet project of Jensen's, the story of John and Mary Winchester.  They have snared an all-star as Executive Producer/Writer to pen the series too, our WFB pal Robbie Thompson!  
We've been waiting for this for a while, actually ever since Jensen Ackles was cast in season three of "The Boys" last year.  Finally, here is our first look at "Soldier Boy":

Soldier Boy
Enjoying the mini hiatus?  Photos are now available for episode 1.08, titled "Fine is a Four Letter Word" (so true!), which will air on April 8th.  It seems like the right time to get up a preview!

Walker in on a bit of a hiatus until March 11th.  Until then, we have a synopsis and preview clip!  I'll tell ya, the synopsis and the preview clip do not seem to be talking about the same episode.  I think the clip is a bit more revealing.  

We'll have the episode photos here as soon as they are available.  

ETA:  The episode photos are here!  See below.

Here is the official synopsis per The CW:


MICKI’S MOTHER DROPS IN FOR A VISIT – When Geri (guest star Odette Annable) decides to sell the bar, it throws Walker (Jared Padalecki) for a loop. With so many memories attached to the bar, he asks Geri to reconsider and reminds her of all the good times they’ve had there with Emily (guest star Genevieve Padalecki) and Hoyt (guest star Matt Barr). Meanwhile, Micki (Lindsey Morgan) is shocked when her mother (guest star Alex Meneses) drops in unexpectedly. The episode was written by Casey Fisher & Paula Sabbaga and directed by Amyn Kaderali (#106). Original airdate 3/11/2021. Every episode of WALKER will be available to stream on The CW App and CWTV.com the day after broadcast for free and without a subscription, log-in or authentication required.
