“Firstly, we would like to thank all the people who have been involved with the show both in front of and behind the camera. 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. 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 send off they deserve.”
Padalecki added on Instagram: “Dear #spnfamily, Season 1 @jensenackles and I want you to know that next season, SEASON 15, will be the last season of #supernatural. I am so incredibly grateful for the family that we’ve all built together. I love y’all and am more appreciative of y’all than my meager vocabulary could hope to describe. I’m also typing through tears. So, please forgive me. ‘Til next time.”
Jensen Ackles added his own message on Instagram, saying, “Well, it’s official. One more round for the Winchester brothers. Though nothing ever really ends in Supernatural…does it?” Perhaps this is a ray of hope that a Supernatural movie could happen, or even something else.
