We here at Screen Rant report on The CW’s DC properties quite a bit these days, but let’s never forget Supernatural, which has become one of the network’s longest running shows of all time. Over the course of the show’s eleven seasons, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester have seen and done it all, contending with ghosts, demons, and various other paranormal monsters.
A new report from TVLine suggests that Supernatural may soon make room for Arrow star Stephen Amell to appear. An upcoming episode of the paranormal series will center upon some freaky supernatural occurences taking place in the world of professional wresting. One of the wrestlers affected by these happenings will be a character named Shawn Harley — a character described as an “ambitious rookie” in the wrestling world.
Despite lack of confirmation, these rumors indicate that Amell will be the one to step into this upcoming role as Harley. This doesn’t seem outside the realm of possibility, as the actor already has crossed over to various properties within the Arrowverse (see: The Flash, and the upcoming Legends of Tomorrow) and had brief stint on The Vampire Diaries prior to his casting as billionaire Oliver Queen.
As many fans already know, this type of role seems tailor-made for Amell who appeared at WWE SummerSlam this past August to settle his dispute with professional wrestler Stardust. Amell actually won a Slammy Award for Best Celebrity Moment of the Year for his brief stint at the event — an award that was subsequently stolen by Stardust. While that dispute has yet to be fully resolved, it’s clear that Amell has a deep passion for the world of wrestling and shows no sign of turning down opportunities of this nature any time soon.
Adding further fuel to the rumor, Amell himself recently posted a picture to his Twitter profile indicating an interest and excitement towards his fellow CW program. Check it out below:
This could be nothing, or it could be an indication that Amell will indeed be appearing on Supernatural. The Arrow star has had numerous interactions and engagements with Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki before, but way this posting coincides with the rumor seems too perfect to not have some level of significance. Only time will tell if these rumors turn out to be factual, but if they are indeed true, one should expect Stephen Amell’s upcoming appearance on Supernatural to be a defining moment of the show’s near future.
Supernatural will return to The CW on Wednesday January 20th, 2016. The Flash will return on Tuesday, January 19th, 2016, while Arrow will return on Wednesday, January 20th, 2016 and Legends of Tomorrow will see its series premiere on Thursday, January 21st, 2016.
