News of the potential “Supernatural” spin-off apparently came as news to Padalecki, who tweeted that he was “gutted” to hear of it via social media. But the response to his tweet prompted Padalecki – now starring on “Walker” – to ask fans to “resist the temptation to lash out” on his behalf, later writing, “The show is early in the process with miles to go. We’ve travelled a lot of roads together, and sometimes those damn roads have bumps. Bumps don’t stop us. Once brothers, always brothers.”
