In addition to Richard Speight, Jr. directing The CW’s Kung Fu this year, we’ve also confirmed that Richard will also be directing an episode of Walker, as well as an episode of the Supernatural prequel, The Winchesters!

No specific episode information has been released yet, but it’s so exciting to see him return to Walker, as well as jump into The Winchesters!

Speight, Jr. is no stranger to directing projects for The CW, directing multiple episodes of Supernatural, Walker, and Kung Fu. Both Walker and Kung Fu also have ties to Supernatural, with Walker starring Jared Padalecki and Kung Fu being co-created by former Supernatural writer Robert Berens.

For Walker, Speight has previously directed “Dig” (Season 1, Episode 17) and “The One Who Got Away” (Season 2, Episode 2). Walker stars Jared Padalecki, Ashley Reyes, Keegan Allen, Mitch Pileggi, Molly Hagan, Odette Annable, Coby Bell, and Jeff Pierre. Walker‘s third season returns on Thursday, October 6 at 8 p.m. on The CW.

The Winchesters stars Meg Donnelly and Drake Rodger as pre-series Mary Campbell and John Winchester and will explore their origin story through the eyes of their son, Dean (Jensen Ackles), who will narrate the series. It will also star JoJo Fleites, Nida Khurshid, Bianca Kajlich, and Demetria McKinney. The series will premiere on October 8 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
