Stars Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, and Misha Collins released this video message to the fans following the big announcement of the show’s final season.
Jake Abel returned as Sam and Dean’s long-forgotten sibling, Adam Milligan (or, if you will, Adam Winchester), in Season 15, as showrunner Andrew Dabb confirmed in a post-Comic-Con panel presser. You can read more about Adam’s return right here.
Matt Cohen will reprise his role as Young John Winchester, as revealed via TV Line, during this past July’s San Diego Comic-Con festivities. No further details were disclosed about the return. Pertinently, news of a flashback episode for the back-half was recently confirmed.
Of course, Jensen Ackles (Dean) and Jared Padalecki (Sam) are back for the final run, as is Misha Collins (Castiel). But what about Jeffrey Dean Morgan, whose long-gone John Winchester returned for the series’ 300th episode?
There’s no word on whether we can count on one more apperance from Papa Winchester, but Morgan had this to say on Twitter about the final season being announced:

Here’s to hoping we get to see him back on the show one more time.
Amongst the notable one-offs this season, Christian Kane fielded a guest role in Supernatural Season 15, Episode 7, “Last Call” as Leo Webb, a former hunter and a friend of Dean Winchester. However, the reunion did not end well. Kane, who’s best known to the Buffy fandom from his recurring role as Lindsey McDonald on 1999-2004 spinoff series Angel, has spent this past decade fielding long-term TV runs with TNT on 2008-2012’s Leverage and 2014-2018’s The Librarians.
