After 15 seasons, ‘Supernatural’ will be signing off, but there is one last batch of episodes, and now you can find out when they begin. The final road trip kicks off on Thursday, October 10 at 8 pm EST. (‘Legacies’ follows at 9 pm.) The news that The CW’s flagship series would end came in March, when the series’ stars Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, and Misha Collins posted a heartfelt goodbye message to fans.
Here is the synopsis for the final season:
The epic journey of the Winchester brothers come to a close as Supernatural enters its final season. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have battled demons and angels, mythical creatures and monsters, in a seemingly unending quest to save the world. But in the final battle of the show’s 14th season, they face off against God Himself (Rob Benedict), refusing to kill their surrogate Nephilim son Jack (Alexander Calvert), and thus bringing about God’s decision to end this reality once and for all… Supernatural is from Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Robert Singer (Midnight Caller), Andrew Dabb, Robert Berens (The Ringer) and Eugenie Ross-Leming & Brad Buckner (Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman).
Ackles discussed the final season, saying:
“The conversation’s been going on about when, when is the time? I think he and I always wanted to never see the show fizzle, never run out of gas. We wanted to go out strong, we wanted to go out while we were still able to give the quality of product that we’ve been giving for the last 15 years.
“I think whatever it is, it’s got to be the brothers together. That’s been the core of this show since the beginning. I think it’s really what the fans want to see. I think regardless of who comes knockin’, I think whatever is done it’s about these two brothers and their journey. I think that’s really where the heart of the show should reside.”
Unlike a lot of shows, ‘Supernatural’ hasn’t really wained in the ratings. It’s still one of The CW’s top-rated shows, but after 15 years, the stars are ready to take some time off to be with their families.
The final season will consist of 20 episodes. Are you sad to see the Winchesters go?
