Series creator, Eric Kripke, is now weighing in after Jared Padalecki revealed his shock at not knowing about the series.
Initially, Kripke tweeted his excitement about the new series, writing:
"When @JensenAckles first told me this story, I loved it."
"He @DanneelHarris & @rthompson1138 are the perfect people to make it. (The other perfect person is too busy Texas Rangering.)."
"Thanks for carrying the torch, guys, go kick it in the ass. Proud of you."
Kripke has since followed up on the matter, revealing that he thought Padalecki knew.
"Guy. When I wrote this, I assumed Jared knew. I was wrong. I already apologized to him & @jarpad & @JensenAckles worked it out," he wrote.
"I love them both like brothers, both equally contributed to #Spn. Families have bumps, they overcome them, that's why they're family.
