The Winchesters has ranked the most-watched television drama series debut so far this season on CW.
Reports revealed that Tuesday’s series premiere of The Winchesters was the US-based CW’s most-watched debut with an average of 757,000 viewers of the first episode.
It was the network’s most-watched series debut since Naomi on January 2022, and it is just behind Walker as the CW’s second most-watched premiere this season.
The Winchesters is a prequel to the CW’s long-running Supernatural, centred on Dean and Sam Winchester’s parents – John and Mary. The story was told from the perspective of narrator Dean Winchester (voiced by Jensen Ackles), of how John met Mary and then went on to save the world.
Over the weekend at New York Comic Con, it was announced that Tom Welling would join the series this season.
He will recur as Samuel Campbell, originally played by Mitch Pileggi in Supernatural. Samuel is the dad of Mary (Meg Donnelly) and the patriarch of the Campbell Hunting family.
