Final Episode Of ‘Supernatural’ To Air Next Week
On November 19, the hit fantasy-drama show Supernatural will air its series finale on The CW. The finale will be directed by showrunner Robert Singer and written by the co-showrunner Andrew Dabb. It will be titled “Carry On,” which is obviously a reference to the now iconic theme song of the show “Carry On My Wayward Son” by the band Kansas. Supernatural became the longest-running fantasy show to ever air on television after its eleventh season premiere. The series finale will also conclude the show’s fifteenth season.
Supernatural was created by Eric Kripke and originally premiered on September 13, 2005. The show focuses on the brothers Sam and Dean Winchester (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) who travel throughout the country and take down mythical creatures such as ghosts, vampires and especially demons. They are normally accompanied by the angel Castiel (Misha Collins), who is one of the few angels to fully be on their side. The two also attempt to find their father (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and take down the evil demon Azazel (Fredric Lehne) who is responsible for killing their mother. The series was originally supposed to have three seasons, but was expanded to five at the request of Kripke. The fifth and original final season had the brothers search for the four rings belonging to the horsemen of apocalypse in order to defeat Lucifer (Mark Pellegrino), the literal devil himself. After the series was renewed for yet another season, Kripke departed as showrunner, having told his original story. Over the last nine seasons, the Winchester brothers went up against several antagonists, including the angel Michael (Matt Cohen), the morally ambiguous king of hell Crowley (Mark Sheppard) and even Castiel himself at one point. However, the story of the entire show came to a head when it was revealed that the one responsible for Sam and Dean’s suffering was none other than God himself (Rob Benedict). The final season focuses on the brothers finding a way to kill God before he can manipulate their story again to his advantage.
Fans can see the Winchester brothers in their final adventure on Thursday, November 19 on The CW.
