It’s the longest running show on the CW and, after it was recently announced there will be a twelfth season, it appears Supernatural isn’t preparing for the end anytime soon. But the possibilities of a finale for the Winchester brothers is just too tempting a topic for stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, as we recently learned from a new interview with the stars for Entertainment Weekly.
“It’s changed a lot over time. Part of me, loving Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, always thought it’d be great to see the boys against insurmountable odds and to freeze-frame on them and just hear stuff in the background,” said Padalecki. “You don’t know if they die, you don’t know if they live, but you know that they’re going to go out in a blaze of glory.”
Ackles says it’s all a manner of perspective.Particularly where in the show they’re at, at any given time.
“If you’d asked me season one, I would’ve thought that it would’ve been the apocalypse. But then again, you can’t end the TV show with the worst thing happening,” said Ackles. “As we’ve evolved, I think that there’s different roads that the show could certainly go down that would be interesting. I think we’ve taken some really good turns.”
For Padalecki, a mix of his Butch Cassidy and end of the world might work.
“I think that’d be a nice way to go out if we had to — watching the end of the world. Or looking up at us from the trunk and throwing the weapons in and saying we’ve got work to do, Padalecki said. “All of those kind of leave room for opinion and room for interpretation. I don’t think we should see the boys die or live, we should wonder.”
We’ll have plenty of time to wonder as Supernatural continues Wednesday’s at 9pm EST on The CW.
