The Supernatural team are back with a crazy new promo for the first few episodes after their mid-season break! The teaser trailer shows clips from several episodes, including a short snippet featuring Danneel Ackles so we know that the teaser includes clips up to and including episode 13 of this season as that is the episode which Danneel will make her first appearance as Sister Jo.
Supernatural returns from its Winter hiatus next week with a brand new episode, “Wayward Sisters” on Thursday 18 January.
Today the photographer who took the photos from the Supernatural Entertainment Weekly cover and feature in October last year has shared outtakes from the photo session with fans – and 16 outtakes feature Jensen!
Exciting news! It was just announced this week that Supernatural will be featured at PaleyFest this year; at the moment the news states that cast and creatives will be in attendance for the panel so there is no official word if Jensen will be attending but we certainly hope so! The pane will take place 20 March in LA.
This will be the third time that Supernatural has attended the Paley Center, their previous appearances were in 2006 and 2011; you can check out photos in our gallery!
Over the weekend Jensen, alongside wife Danneel took part in interviews and press held at their brewery The Family Business, which will be officially opening to the public this Wednesday. Press who got to visit and carry out interviews have been sharing articles and photos of their time; I have uploaded some new photos to the gallery and you can watch an interview which Jensen and Danneel did for Fox7Austin’s Good News segment.
The above video interview was shared by Fox7Austin.
Another great interview was carried out by KXAN where they talked with all members of the brewery (Jensen, Danneel Ackles, Gino Graul and Nate Seales) as well as sharing great photos of the inside of the brewery which you can view by visiting their full article.
When Ackles started homebrewing with his brother-in-law Gino Graul in Los Angeles, it was just a hobby.
“We would go in the backyard and tried to brew our own beer. It was horrible,” says Ackles with a chuckle. “Our friends were very kind and said that it wasn’t.”
Fast forward several years and the idea of starting a craft brewery became a reality when Ackles and his wife decided to move back to Texas after having their first child. Ackles, who is originally from North Texas, and Danneel Ackles, who is from Louisiana, always enjoyed visiting friends in Austin.
The first few days of the new year have been very exciting for the Ackles! This week several press and magazines etc. got the opportunity to visit The Family Business Brewery in Austin to hear more about the venture. Several press outlets shared photos and sneak-peaks from their visit with articles etc. promised to be shared soon – here are some excerpts from an article shared by Austin360 who were at the event;
He and Danneel, also an important figure at the brewery, moved to Austin from Los Angeles because they wanted to be closer to family — the Graul parents live nearby. And from the start, the brewery has been a family affair. That’s where the name came from, though it had originally been a placeholder for something else, Ackles said.
“We racked our brains for close to two years because everyone emphasizes how important the name is to the success of the brewery,” he said. “Andwe just kept calling it the family business because family was pretty much all that was involved with it. But at one point, we said, ‘What if we just call it that?’
“We want people to appreciate the quality, appreciate the experience,” he said. Danneel “and I have always loved entertaining people at our home, and this is kind of an extension of that. This gives an opportunity to do something we’re passionate about and be part of an industry we are really proud of.”
Today Jensen and Danneel took part in a Facebook Live with Fox7Austin which you can view here. They shared that the brewery will be officially opening on Wednesday 10th of January 2018 (due to work commitments Jensen will not be in attendance).
Several photos from the day have now been added to the gallery as well as a photo from last night when a preview opening for family and friends was also held.
Firstly I want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year! I hope 2018 brings great things for everyone, obviously including Mr Jensen Ackles! For the site we have some exciting things happening, starting with a brand new name! We are no longer Simply Jensen Daily but are now Jensen Ackles Source –with a new name comes a new domain, so please be sure to bookmark JENSEN-ACKLES.NET so that you can come visit the site and check out updates (the old domain will work for a while yet but soon it will just be the new one).
