Jensen and Danneel Ackles are opening up about the diversity in their new show The Winchesters!
The married couple and former Supernatural co-stars are of course executive producers on the new CW series, which is a prequel about Jensen‘s character’s parents.
In a recent interview, the duo opened up about featuring a more diverse cast in the new show, which is set in the 1960s and 70s.

“It felt very natural,” Jensen told Variety. “Also, if you go back to that time period – you go back to the late 60s and early 70s, and that’s when things were really kind of shifting from a social perspective.”
He added, “It just made sense that of course there would be some sort of a Hispanic hippie rolling into town and and doing his thing or there was a book smart British woman of Indian culture.”
“Life has always been that way,” Danneel said. “I know some people don’t want to think that but there have always been non binary people. So for us to include a non binary character, that just makes sense because that is life.”
“We’re in a space now where I feel like it is not only largely accepted, but it’s encouraged and I think that that’s fantastic. So we just took that as fuel and went with it. It was a very natural organic thing,” Jensen concluded.
Tune in to The Winchesters on Tuesday nights at 8pm ET/PT on The CW.
