From hunting demons to exploring urban legends, viewers have gotten their fantasy fix while watching the characters of Supernatural for 14 seasons. From the first season in 2005 to the fourteenth season, premiering in 2018, the cast aged right along with the brothers Winchester and company.

How old is the cast of Supernatural? Jared Padalecki has portrayed Sam Winchester in all 14 seasons of Supernatural from the ages of 23 to 36. Much like his character, he has grown quite a bit since the series premiere in 2005. Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester) was only 27 when the pilot aired and as of the season 14 premiere, he had celebrated his 40th birthday.

Jim Beaver has appeared as Bobby Singer in every season of Supernatural since he was 55 years old. Other Supernatural actors include Mark Pellegrino, who has played Lucifer/Nick since season five, and Alexander Calvert who joined the cast as Jack when he was 26.
