Well, folks, it’s here. The end of an era. After 15 seasons, Supernatural is coming to a close, and fans of the series will no doubt be turning down the lights and turning off their phones tomorrow evening at 8 pm ET when the two-parter begins.
Who could have guessed when we tuned in on September 13, 2005 that the story of Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) better known as the Winchesters would still be running in 2020? For those who have stuck with the show, it’s been an emotional ride, and no few are probably waiting on pins and needles to see just how the Winchester story ends.
Supernatural was meant to conclude back in May, but the production was forced to shut down due to Covid-19 restrictions.
In celebration of the series, Entertainment Weekly has been running articles all week long, leading up to the finale, and co-showrunner Robert Singer spoke to the publication about what fans could expect and what it’s meant to take the series to this point.
“It was a lot of responsibility to make it as good an episode as it could possibly be,” he told them.. “I think [co-showrunner] Andrew [Dabb] had written a really good script. It’s a very emotional episode. It’s a personal story, really, about the boys. The season myth really ends at [episode] 19 and this is a bit of a coda to that. It’s really an actors’ episode. The guys are great in it.”
Singer went on to say that fans shouldn’t expect a lot of action or special effects in the episode. Outside of one stunt shot, Supernatural will end in a story about the Winchesters and where they might go when the final credits roll.
“I hope the fans will respond to it,” he said. “We wanted to give the show a real end, not do something that was enigmatic like The Sopranos, but really bring the show to a conclusion. I think we did that.”
Supernatural‘s final episode will air on Thursday, November 19, 2020 at 8 pm ET. Will you be watching? Let us know in the comments below.
