  • The show was set to air its finale on May 18
  • Jensen Ackles said that the show has a satisfying end

The CW’s hit paranormal series “Supernatural” is inching towards its series finale, and there’s a lot of speculation on the fate of Winchester brothers Sam and Dean.

Actor Jared Padalecki, who plays Sam on the show, has been vocal about his desire to kill off the two main characters. Since the beginning of the show in 2005, Sam and Dean have been fighting paranormal elements. They have died multiple times and have even battled God. It’s time for them to find some version of peace.

“I always said I wanted them both to die,” Padalecki shared at San Diego Comic-Con last year. “I think that was my way of saying I want them to achieve peace,” he explained.

Jensen Ackles, who plays Dean, is also clued in on the happenings of the series finale. He said it was initially difficult for him to digest as he was too emotionally attached to his character. But he noted that it was a “satisfying” end to the story of Sam and Dean.

“I struggled with it for about a week or so, and then I realised I’m too invested, I’m too emotional,” Ackles said. “I’m too close to this character. To see anything with finality on it, it’s just hard to digest. I talked to a few people about it and got some clarity on it and have tried to look at it from a different perspective. I, now, have come around to being like, ‘This is a really good ending. This is satisfying.'”

Eric Kripke, the show’s creator who quit post Season 5, has also given his seal of approval to the finale.

Kripke had wanted the show to end after five seasons. But the CW wanted the show to continue, and this led him to leave the show, handing over the reins to Sera Gamble, who succeeded him as showrunner.

"I really think after five years of all of my crap, to have someone who has a fresh perspective and a fresh energy on these characters and this universe is healthy for the show." Kripke explained to Entertainment Weekly in 2010.

“Supernatural”, which is currently on its 15th season, was set to air its finale on May 18. But production was shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic. Although filming has been completed through episode 18, post-production work is pending. Two more episodes are yet to be filmed.

The series' remaining episodes will air Thursdays during the Fall 2020 season.
