EW added to the campaign, reporting that "Winchesters showrunner Robbie Thompson has a five-season plan for the story."
Deadline also helped spread the word that a grassroots show of support might make a difference to the future of the series.
Three days later, Jensen's pumped up the enthusiasm for the #SaveTheWinchesters campaign by releasing a 2.30 minute trailer of the series. The newly released promotional video is an exhilarating recap of climactic moments and quotes from the show. One might even speculate that the clip is a open invitation and introduction of the show to any and all networks that might want to pick up a plug-and-play show with a young, responsive audience.
To all those helping us find this show a home…🙏🏼. The response has been amazing. Let’s keep it up!!!#SaveTheWinchesters pic.twitter.com/NZlas7J2yQ— Jensen Ackles (@JensenAckles) May 15, 2023
Noting the social media trending hashtag, TimeWarnerEnt.com delved into the spirit and fandom behind the #SavetheWinchesters campaign. Their research highlights SPNFamily artists who offered to reward hashtag tweets with #Supernatural gifts! (thanks @waywrdaughter67 for the tip!) A Change.org petition was also started to demonstrate support for the show.
The Winchester Family Business has covered The Winchesters series since it was first announced almost exactly one year to the day of its cancellation.
