It was announced in March on Instagram that season 15 would be the last for Supernatural. Stars Misha Collins, Jensen Ackles, and Jared Padalecki himself made the announcement.

Padalecki and his wife, Genevieve Cortese share three kids, Thomas, 7, Austin, 5, and Odette, 2. The couple spoke in May about the show ending, as Padalecki has been a star in it since 2005. When it began, Genevieve had been a co-star on the show as well.

“I feel like I’ll never really say goodbye to him,” he said of his character, Sam. He admitted that the ending would be “bittersweet.”

“We really have become a family,” he said. “Over 15 years, we’ve cut the fat. We didn’t fire anybody but if they didn’t like being there, they move on. So the people that are there want to be there.”

“We’ve known them for 15 years; we’ve seen births and deaths and divorces and marriages,” he continued. “I mean, I met my wife in season 4 and we have three kids! So much has happened. I feel such a deep connection with everybody. It’s gonna be rough.”
