Season 13 might be one of the luckier ones for the Winchester brothers of TV's Supernatural on The CW.
That's right - Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, aka Dean and Sam Winchester, are heading to pay everyone's favorite canine hero Scooby-Doo a visit. While there is no clear explanation - yet - as to why the Supernatural crimefighters are joining forces with Scooby-Doo, the fan base for both Supernatural and Scooby-Doo is already excited to see these crime fighters join forces.
According to The CW, the Winchester brothers are set to go head to head with a force so powerful that the world could very well be destroyed - or saved. Such dire straits are to be expected in the world of Supernatural, though with Scooby-Doo, the stakes have been considerably lower, as instead of real demons, Scooby-Doo confronts bitter, twisted individuals bent on revenge against their former bosses, friends and colleagues that are merely wearing masks and costumes. It's possible that the Winchesters may find Scooby's world far tamer than the usual world they face on a day to day basis - or in the case of episodic television, week to week - so Dean and Sam Winchester might find the experience of being in Scooby's relatively sedate world something of a vacation from chasing the demons they usually chase.
This will not have been the first time that the popular CW series strayed into the world of animation, either; their Season 8 episode "Hunteri Heroici" first saw Supernatural taking a look at going into animation, and there is also an anime version of the show which premiered January 2011.
According to IGN, "Following the events of Season 12, the thirteenth season follows Sam (Padalecki) and Dean (Ackles) going up against a powerful creature that can either save or destroy the world."
Certainly, that offers fans of both Supernatural and Scooby-Doo the opportunity to see just where the Winchesters will go in the animated world and just which enemies they might run into while in Scooby's world. It also remains to be seen whether or not Fred, Velma, Daphne and of course Shaggy might join in on the shenanigans.
Regardless, with the Winchester brothers making the big crossover into Scooby's world, it's clear that Dean and Sam might find themselves knee deep in physically improbable situations, as often occurs with cartoons, and no one could feasibly predict what Dean and Sam could run into along the way. Could it have something to do with this "powerful creature" that Dean and Sam are apparently going up against? Could it represent some sort of sanctuary that the boys need while trying to amass resources?
We have to wait til Season 13 to find out.
