“Supernatural” to Add Third Brother?

Jake Abel to join Supernatural?I’ve never seen a single episode of “Supernatural”, so excuse my ignorance; I do know that it’s about two brothers traversing the country in a cool car, fighting all sorts of evil. TV Guide has now learned that it may soon be three brothers against evil, however.

TV Guide received exclusive word that Jake Able has been cast as the third Winchester brother, Adam, who will make his first appearance in the April 23rd episode, fittingly titled “Jump the Shark”. The existing Winchester brothers will learn that Adam is possibly the offspring of one of their father’s misadventures while hunting demons himself, though neither Adam nor the brothers were aware of the other’s existence.

Remember when they did this on “Diff’rent Strokes”? Or was it “Family Ties”? Adding another sibling is usually a last-ditch effort to keep a show popular, something I’ve heard “Supernatural” has had no problems with on its own. Maybe in this case it’s just a one-off for this episode? I guess viewers will find out in a few months!

    I just hope it’s not because one of the brothers is going to bail on the series. Supernatural is one of the few shows worth watching anymore. Then again I don’t think I’d miss Sam’s constant pissy whining…

    Well, considering the episode is called, as you pointed out, “Jump the Shark”, one might think that they are aware of what they’re doing…

    I have faith in Kripke — I’m sure however it plays out, it’s going to be a fun ride.
