There Was Supposed To Be A ‘Supernatural’ Crossover With ‘Smallville’ That Never Happened

These days The CW is all about the mighty crossover, but one show that has existed in its own bubble since 2005 and will probably continue to do so for the indefinite future is the cult darling Supernatural, now in its 12th season. But apparently that wasn’t always the case! Jackson Stewart, a former Supernatural production assistant (who co-wrote the season six episode “Frontierland”) appeared on EW Radio’s SiriusXM show “Entertainment Weirdly” airing Monday, where he revealed that one idea they could never make happen was a crossover with the teen Superman drama, Smallville, which ran on the CW from 2001 to 2011.

The concept actually sounds pretty amazing for one of the series’ classic jokey episodes, but alas, it was never meant to be.

“There was a lot of really cool ideas that some of the writers had,” Stewart said. “They had an episode where they really wanted to do a Superman curse that was about every actor who plays Superman ends up getting killed. So they find out that Tom Welling from Smallville is next and have to save him. I thought that was one of the funniest ideas that I’d heard.”

Prior to being cast on Supernatural, series lead Jensen Ackles had a 22 episode stint on Smallville as assistant football coach Jason Teague, which also may have made things a bit awkward. That’s probably why we also never heard of any Supernatual crossovers with Gilmore Girls (which also aired on The CW and featured Jared Padalecki), but how cool would it have been for the boys to track like, a werewolf to Stars Hollow? Talk about a missed opportunity.
