Jared Padalecki & Jensen Ackles Talk the End of 'Supernatural'
Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles are all smiles while sitting on a panel for their long-running series Supernatural during The CW’s portion of the 2014 TCA Summer Press Tour on Friday (July 18) at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.
The guys, joined by producer Jeremy Carver, both revealed their thoughts on when the series should end.
Jared: “If the show quality diminishes, which I have no doubt that it will not in [Carver's] capable hands, but if the show ever reaches a spot where we get a phone call, ‘You know what guys, we feel what needs to be said has been said’ [then I'd stop] … I truly do deeply care about the show and about Sam Winchester. I’m 32 years old tomorrow and I spent 9 years of my life with him, and so I don’t want him to be broken down and beaten down into something that I end up not respecting. I respect this character and this show and the writers and my fellow actors and actresses. I think we know the show enough, our characters enough, that if there’s an end coming I think we’ll all see it and we don’t have to push it to the ‘I Love LA’ levels. I’ve got some kids now and a wife. I love my personal life very, very much and when it’s time to hang up the Sam Winchester hat, I’ll welcome that chapter.”
Jensen: “I think we’re all on the same page. We still get excited by it and I think that that hasn’t tarnished in 10 years. And I remember getting the last script of season 9, the season finale, and I got all giddy about it. I was excited to see what happens in season 10. I think as long as there’s that fulfillment, that enjoyment, that excitement, then, yeah, we will keep going, as long as people are hanging in with us and are still entertained. We love these stories.”
