Fans of the CW's "Supernatural" show may be a bit disappointed to find out that the anime adaptation of the series will not be aired on television. The series will only be available, in July, on Blu-ray and DVD.

"Supernatural:The Anime" will consist of 22 episodes focusing on the first and second seasons of the series. Jared Padelecki and Jensen Ackles both will be lending their voice to the project, but Ackles will only be featured on select episodes. Whether or not there will be a different actor portraying him is not yet known.

The press release states:

"Supernatural: The Anime Series revisits the Winchester brothers' journey down the backroads of America as they search for clues to their father's disappearance, hunt down the supernatural in all its unearthly forms, and enter into the unexpected mystery of their destinies.

The Supernatural anime episodes mirror the story arc of the series' first two seasons, providing supplemental stories ranging from prequels and spin-offs to untold tales that fit within the Supernatural mythology."


Both the DVD and the Blu-ray will be available for purchase on July 26.
