It’s official: Supernatural will end after season 15.
The longest-running series on The CW is coming to an end with a 20-episode 15th season. The show was renewed for a 15th season back in January.
The announcement was made by series’ stars Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, and Misha Collins. The video was posted on Instagram Friday.
“We’re very excited to be moving into our 15th season, it will be our last,” Ackles said. “15 years of a show that has certainly changed my life, I know it’s changed these two guys’ lives, and we just wanted you to here from us that though we’re excited about next year, it will be the finale.”
“We’ve cried some tears and we’ll cry some more, but we’re grateful and we’re going to work all that emotion into next season,” added Padalecki.
“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,” exec producers Robert Singer and Andrew Dabb said in a joint statement.
The show hit its 300th episode milestone last month, and at the time of its series finale, the series will have aired over 320 episodes. According to Deadline, the show continued to be a fan favorite ranking as the CW second most watched and highest rated among adults 18-49.
