Supernatural’s Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki and More Deliver Emotional Goodbyes on the Last Day of Filming

Supernatural's Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki and More Deliver Emotional Goodbyes on the Last Day of Filming

It’s been one hell of a journey over 15 years, but we’ve reached the end of filming on Supernatural. On Thursday, Sept. 10, which marked the show’s final day of shooting, the cast and crew flooded social media with memories and special tributes to honor their time with the series. If you thought you’d finally come to grips with saying goodbye, these sentimental messages might be the thing to undo all of that. 

Jared Padalecki, who plays Sam Winchester, delivered a heartfelt post that may or may not have sent us into an emotional spiral. “I write this as I head to my last day of #Supernatural… My last day with #SamWinchester,” he wrote, noting he’d have more to say later. “Obviously, my head is spinning and my emotions are stratospheric, but there’s still a bit of time left on the clock. Thank y’all SO MUCH for the incredible amount of love and support that’s been headed our way, in these final hours. It’s definitely been felt.”

Jensen Ackles, aka Dean Winchester, also opened up about the end of filming. “Woke up at 6am this morning. That alarm went off with a heavy tone. Today is the final day of a 15 year journey. One that has changed my life forever,” he wrote. “To those I have worked with on this journey and to those who have watched and supported…you will never understand my great appreciation for you. ‘Thank you’ doesn’t cover it. There just aren’t words. I’m so grateful for these memories that I will carry with me forever. What a ride it has been. And what a run. #spnfamilyforever here are a few shots from our final days…including today. I’ll try and send more later, but in true SPN form…we are in the middle of ‘nowhere’ and have zero service. Go figure. Stay tuned.”

On Wednesday, Ackles posted a short video via Instagram Stories bidding farewell to the Men of Letters Bunker, which had been the Winchesters’ home for the last few years.

Creator Eric Kripke reminisced on the first scene shot for Supernatural. Both he and Jim Beaver, who plays Bobby Singer, honored late producer and director Kim Manners in their posts. 

This was the first #Supernatural scene we shot. Today will be the last. I’m grateful & love you all beyond words. But it’s only over when you say it is, #SPNFamily. In the words of Kim Manners (RIP): Kick It In The Ass. #SPN @jarpad @JensenAckles @mishacollins pic.twitter.com/GXLqBkanPu

Supernatural Season 15: Premiere Date, Series Finale Date, Spoilers, and Everything Else We Know

After going in hiatus amid COVID-19, production on the show’s remaining two episodes resumed on Tuesday, Aug 18. According to Ackles, those final episodes will give fans different kinds of closure. 

“Episode 19 feels kind of like the season finale and Episode 20 feels like the series finale. It’s kind of a double whammy,” Ackles previously said. “There have been some adjustments made from the scripts that we were going to shoot in March to the scripts that we’re going to shoot now. We’ve had to accommodate a pandemic.” 

The remaining episodes will find a reinvigorated Team Free Will working to stop Chuck (Rob Benedict) from delivering his diabolical ending, in which at least one Winchester dies. Expect plenty of familiar faces to drop by, including Charlie (Felicia Day) and Adam (Jake Abel), as we approach the end. 

Supernatural returns Thursday, Oct. 8 at 8/7c on the CW. The series finale is set to air on Thursday, Nov. 19 at 9/8.
