‘Supernatural’: Jensen Ackles Teases That This Might Not Be the End of the Series

As most Winchester brothers’ fanatics already know, this upcoming season of Supernatural will be its last. Fans have high expectations for season 15 and don’t want to say goodbye to their favorite monster and demon killing family. Although the show is coming to an end, it might not be forever, according to Jensen Ackles, who plays Dean Winchester. Dean and Sam could possibly return for a reunion at some point.

At the Television Critics Association summer press tour, Jensen Ackles hinted that the show may not be gone forever, to the delight of fans. “It’s a long journey that I don’t think is ever going to be over,” Ackles said. “I think we’re just going to go away for a while. For how long, I don’t know.”

Ackles definitely sounds like he’s leaving the door open for a revival later on down the road. “I’m not ever ready to close doors or burn bridges,” he continued. “I think that’s foolish. Am I saying there’s something in the works? No. Am I open to having a conversation in the future? What’s the harm in that?”

Fans will be pleased with the final season of ‘Supernatural’

Ackles also spoke about what this last season will be like, and how it will be a testament to what fans love about the show. The majority of fans will be pleased, according to Ackles.

“I want it to do justice to what we’ve built for the past 14 and a half years, and right now I think the game plan we have is going to do just that,” Ackles said. “You’re not going to please everybody — you just can’t — but for the majority of the fans that have been with us on this journey, it’s going to feel right and it’s going to feel good. I know that’s how I feel and I’m still excited to tell that story.”

Jared Padalecki, who plays Sam Winchester, is also happy the show has lasted as long as it did. In the early years, it wasn’t certain the show would survive from season to season. That eventually changed, and the show became the huge hit it is today. “One of the blessings, I feel, has been that we’ve known that we’re carrying on so we don’t have to create a false ending every season,” Padalecki said.

What can fans expect from season 15 of ‘Supernatural?’

At the same summer press tour, the cast and producers talked about what fans can expect from season 15 of Supernatural. This season will pick up exactly where the last season left off, “with our guys surrounded by a bunch of zombies,” said co-showrunner Andrew Dabb. He also hinted that the final season will include “a lot of people from the past.”

Dabb also spoke about Sam and Dean facing death, again. “We’re looking at this as a true ending. People can’t keep coming back over and over again,” said Dabb. “This time it’s for real.”

Fans are worried that the main characters, Sam and Dean Winchester will be killed off in the final season. Hopefully not, with the hint of a possible reunion in the future. Misha Collins, who plays the angel Castiel, said, “It feels different going into this season because it is the end. Knowing that every day, we have a lot of lasts in front of us and it feels poignant and it feels meaningful.”

Fans can expect to catch up with the Winchester brothers on October 10. Hopefully it won’t be the last time we see the duo saving the world from certain destruction.
