A new actor is rumored to be joining the fifth and final season of Amazon Prime Video's dark superhero show, "The Boys"- and he's my other favorite Winchester!

San Antonio native Jared Padalecki, who starred in shows like "Gilmore Girls" and most famously played Sam Winchester on "Supernatural" is going to have some free time now that "Walker: Texas Ranger" is ending- and Eric Kripke, showrunner to both "Supernatural" and "The Boys",  thinks that Padalecki would make a great addition to the final season of "The Boys".

In an interview with Variety last month, Kripke said:

I feel like I have to complete my game of ‘Supernatural’ Pokémon and I have my one big one — very big one — left to catch.

Referring to Padalecki as a Pokemon sounds pretty cute; but also very accurate. Kripke has been adding some familiar faces from "Supernatural" onto "The Boys" as seaons have gone by; Jensen Ackles- who plays Padalecki's brother in "Supernatural"- made his "The Boys" debut last season as Soldier Boy. This season, Jeffrey Dean Morgan- the actor who played Sam and Dean's father John Winchester — who plays CIA case officer Joe Kessler in this season.

And not to be forgotten, Jim Beaver, who portrays Bobby Singer "Supernatural" is in "The Boys" as U.S. Secretary of Defense and presidential candidate Robert A. Singer- surely a reference to Beaver's longtime character.

Would Padalecki event want to be in "The Boys"? Of course he does! In an interview Padalecki said:

I don’t think [Season 5] films until next year, but I will be ready when he makes the phone call. I’ll just say ‘Okay, when am I flying out?'

So far, all signs are pointing to this actually happening. It's the "Supernatural" reunion we've been waiting for!
