It is time for “Supernatural” and its fans to say farewell.
The beloved dark fantasy series will officially wrap with the conclusion of season 15. Stars Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins made the announcement on Friday in a video. “Well, it’s official. One more round for the Winchester brothers,” Ackles wrote in the caption on social media. “Though nothing ever really ends in ‘Supernatural’… does it?”
Executive producers Robert Singer and Andrew Dabb also addressed the end of “Supernatural” in a joint statement published by The Hollywood Reporter. “Firstly, we would like to thank all the people who have been involved with the show both in front of and behind the camera,” they wrote. “For us it has been an experience of a lifetime.”
“The support we have had from both Warner Bros Television and The CW has been incredible,” Singer and Dabb continued. “We’d like to give special thanks to Jensen, Jared and Misha for making this journey so special. It is now most important to us to give these characters that we love the sendoff they deserve.”
“Supernatural” is currently the longest-running sci-fi/genre series in the history of American broadcast television. It first aired in 2005 on The WB and will likely conclude in 2020 with season 15. Season 14 of “Supernatural” will release four episodes between now and April 25 before the final season premieres later in 2019.
Members of the cast and crew, including “Supernatural” creator Eric Kripke, took to Twitter to express their thoughts.
Fans were understandably gutted over the news and shared their emotions on Twitter.
