'Supernatural' Creator Talks About the Ending He Would Have Given the Show

Eric Kripke, the creator of the beloved The CW series Supernatural, is opening up about the show’s series finale.

If you didn’t know, Kripke originally developed the series for just three seasons and then expanded it to five seasons following the success of the show. He departed as showrunner after season five and the series continued for a whopping ten more seasons.

Eric told Entertainment Weekly that he had a long talk with series star Jensen Ackles and co-showrunners Andrew Dabb and Bob Singer about the ending.

“It was interesting, they pitched it to me and I went off to think about it for a couple days, and admittedly, me being me, I spent some time thinking, ‘Okay, is there any other ending I would pitch back that I think is better?’” Eric said. “And I spent a couple days trying to chase down a couple avenues and couldn’t come up with anything better. So I went back and I was like, ‘Guys I think it’s the right one.’ There’s some substance to it but there’s something emotional, I think there’s a positive energy around it.”

Eric was asked about how he would’ve ended things and he doesn’t think fans would’ve been happy.

“But I can assure the fans that my ending was so much darker than the ending they’re going with, so anyone who’s like, ‘Kripke should’ve ended it,’ I’m like, ‘You would’ve hated my ending!,’” he said. “Because it was a horror movie and it was going to have a horror movie ending, so I can promise you the ending [they went with] you’ll love much more than if you had let me end the show.”

Fans were not happy about a moment that was left out of the series finale, which they were hoping to see.
