'Supernatural' Season 15: Release date, plot, cast, trailer, news and everything else about long-running CW show
For 14 seasons, the Winchester brothers have hunted demons, genes, vampires, werewolves, and even angels. Even though the fans have made it clear that they would love and encourage the wayward boys and their friends for as long as they are around, the stars and showrunners of The CW's 'Supernatural' have decided that the upcoming season 15 would be the final one.
We have seen many permutations and combinations within Team Winchester, whether it is Sam becoming a demon, Dean getting possessed by Archangel Michael, Castiel losing his marbles, Satan’s son Jack losing all his powers, and so on. From heaven, hell and purgatory to a whole other alternate universe, our boys have been everywhere, and have even battled and won against death.
So why end now, after all these years? During the Television Critics Association press tour, Jared Padalecki revealed that everyone on the show wanted to bow out on a high. "So the show is going so strong right now. It's going so well right now that the story is strong, the actors are talented, the directors, writers. We're such a well-oiled machine," he said, adding, "We thought it would be almost poetic to end what Supernatural is all about, to almost have to say goodbye too soon."
'Supernatural' will return to The CW for its final season on Thursday, October 10.
‘Supernatural’ is primarily the story of two hunter brothers – Dean and Sam Winchester – who continue their father’s legacy of killing things that should be dead and keeping humans safe. However, over the years, it went from good vs. bad to the evil we can stand vs. unforgivable evil. The Winchester brothers, whose lesson number one was to kill demons, befriended one and even went on to become the foster parents to Satan’s son.
In the penultimate season finale, we saw Sam and Dean at yet another crossroads, where they had to choose between what is good for the world, and what they want to do. As usual, they made the more chaotic choice, leaving earth in, well, chaos.
In the final seasons, we will see the Winchester brothers grappling with the aftereffects of that choice, especially since this time around it was god himself that they managed to piss off. At the end of Season 14, we saw that god has brought back all the supernatural beings that the brothers have killed over the years. They will now have to kill them all once again. And, who knows, because god is having fun with it, they may do it all over again a few more times after that.
Jensen Ackles as Dean Winchester and Jared Padelecki as Sam Winchester gave life to this supernatural drama, inspiring millions worldwide to fall in love with 'Supernatural.'
The actors have made the fans feel so much life family that the 'Supernatural' fandom is as invested in their personal lives as they are in the show. They have also made it extremely clear that they care about their characters as much as the fans do. In the final season, there is quite a bit of input that they have given to ensure an ending that does justice to the beloved brothers and their story.
Misha Collins as Castiel and Alexander Calvert as Jack Kline will also be returning to the show as main characters. These are both characters and actors that the SPN family - including the fans - welcomed to the fold with open arms. As much as the actors are victims to the incessant pranking of Ackles and Padalecki, they are also phenomenal actors who brought their unique charisma to the mix and made 'Supernatural' what it is today.
Jake Abel is expected to take on a guest role and return as Adam Milligan, who we last saw getting captured and thrown in a cage with Lucifer and Michael in the final season. Ruth Connell is also expected to reprise her role as Rowena MacLeod in the final season.
Beyond this, we are promised a reunion with many monsters and other supernatural beings Sam and Dean have encountered in the past.
Writer, director, and producer Eric Kripke is the brains behind ‘Supernatural.’ Prior to the success of the CW show, he had co-written the screenplay for the film Boogeyman, which was released in early 2005.
After stepping down as the primary showrunner for ‘Supernatural’, he took on the title of part-time executive consultant and went on to develop the NBC series ‘Revolution’ for the 2012-2013 season. The show as canceled after two seasons.
In 2015, he wrote a comic book series called ‘Vertigo’ and is currently working on its TV adaptation. The most recent work is Seth Rogen’s ‘The Boys,’ which he developed for Amazon.
The series' co-showrunner Andrew Dabb teased during an interview with TV Line that Sam and Dean are "going to start to lose people who, in past seasons, we would’ve never lost — and lose them in a very real way. Our guys are going to realize there’s a certain finality, and some of the things they’ve relied on to get through the day — people, talents, things like that — they are no longer going to be able to roll out. And that’s going to throw them for a loop."
