• The co-showrunners of “Supernatural” said filming the finale had been a “bittersweet” experience
  • However, Robert Singer and Andrew Dabb do not regret their decision to end the show after 15 seasons
  • “Supernatural” will air its finale episode on Nov. 19

“Supernatural” returned to television on Thursday after a six-month hiatus with a holiday-themed episode that kick-started Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean’s (Jensen Ackles) plan to kill God (Rob Benedict).

“Supernatural” Season 15, episode 14, titled “Last Holiday,” was one of the last episodes the cast and crew had shot before the coronavirus pandemic forced production to shut down. In August, co-showrunners Robert Singer and Andrew Dabb resumed production for the finale, which they tease will be an emotional one.

In a new interview with Deadline, both Singer and Dabb said filming the finale was a bittersweet experience. The latter admitted that he’s still in denial that “Supernatural” has come to an end.

“Bob and I still have a lot to do in post, and sound, and visual effects, and all that kind of stuff, so it’s still going on for me,” he said. “It’s not over yet, but probably like middle of November, I’ll just collapse in a corner somewhere.”

Singer added that although saying goodbye to “Supernatural” was hard, they do not regret their decision to end the show.

“I would just add to that, that it was bittersweet, and there was a certain amount of sadness, but I don’t think any of us were looking back and thinking we made the wrong decision,” Singer said.

“Supernatural” will air its finale on Nov. 19, but one person who is not ready to bid farewell for good is Ackles.

Speaking with Michael Rosenbaum on his “Inside of You” podcast last month, the actor said that he wants to play Dean Winchester once more after “Supernatural” Season 15 wraps, maybe five years down the line.

“I’ve always thought that there was a possibility of five years down the road, getting the call and saying, 'Hey, let’s do a little short-order action for a streaming network and bring it back for six episodes,’” Ackles told Rosenbaum.

“I do feel like this isn’t the long goodbye right now,” he continued. “I feel like this is, ‘Let’s hang this in the closet for now, and we’ll dust her off down the road a bit.’”

Ackles had expressed similar sentiments in August last year during the Television Critics Association press tour where he said that Sam and Dean were going away only for a while, TV Line reported.

“I think we’re just going to go away for a while. For how long, I don’t know,” he said at the time.
