‘Supernatural’ is officially ending after season 15
Sad news for Winchester fans. “Supernatural” is officially ending. The CW has confirmed that season 15 of the show will be its last.
In a heartfelt video message, “Supernatural” stars Jared Padalecki, Misha Collins and Jensen Ackles spoke directly to fans and explained that the show about brothers who fight supernatural villains was reaching its conclusion.
“We just told the crew that though we’re very, very excited about moving into our 15th season, it will be our last,” Ackles says in the video. “We wanted you to hear from us that though we’re excited about next year, it will be the finale, the big grand finale of an institution.”
That sound you just heard is the hearts of millions of “Supernatural” fans breaking.
Since 2005, “Supernatural” has held a special place in the hearts of its viewers. The program is the perfect mixture of dark fantasy and humor, which is why the program has won several awards over the years, including People’s Choice Awards for “Favorite Network Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Show” and “Favorite Bromance.” Notably, the show was also nominated for three GLAAD media awards for their representation of LGBT characters.
Throughout the years the show has grown from a popular television program on The WB into a cult-favorite.
“To say that the series’s young fan base is active is grossly to understate the matter,” explains Ginia Bellafante in a New York Times piece about the series. “Like ‘Star Trek,’ “Supernatural” inspires conventions around the world where even actors who have made minor guest appearances on the series can make a good deal of money showing up and signing autographs.”
Not bad for a show that was only meant to last 5 seasons! However, all good things must come to end, so it is time for us to prepare to say farewell to the Winchester brothers.
In the video message to fans, Ackles shared these beautiful thoughts from creator Eric Kripke regarding the show’s conclusion.
“In a show about family, it is amazing and it is the pride of his life that it became family, so thank you guys.”
