After returning as John Winchester for Supernatural’s 300th episode, Jeffrey Dean Morgan is saying his goodbyes again.
Over the weekend, Supernatural stars Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, and Misha Collins announced that the popular series would be coming to an end with season 15. As many cast and crew took to social media to share their reactions, Morgan also had a message for fans and for his on-screen sons.
“One more twit for the day, it’s late. I just want to say to all of @cw_spn family… that was one hell of a run. I hope this last year is enough time to wrap up a story that deserves only the best. My love to cast, crew and fans. @JensenAckles and @jarpad ya done us proud Xojd,” the actor shared.
Although he didn’t know at the time that season 15 would be its last, when Morgan returned as John Winchester for episode 300, he opened up about wanting to return in the show’s final season. “My dream would be to come back and do something in the last year, the last episode, the last couple episodes, whatever, and do a proper little arc,” he said. “It’d be fun to have some time and really dig in,” he says, adding, “Maybe [episode 300] won’t be the end of John. Like I always say to everybody: ‘It’s Supernatural, anything can happen.’”
Executive producers Robert Singer and Andrew Dabb released the following statement about the show ending: “Firstly, we would like to thank all the people who have been involved with the show both in front of and behind the camera. For us it has been an experience of a lifetime. The support we have had from both Warner Bros Television and The CW has been incredible. We’d like to give special thanks to Jensen, Jared and Misha for making this journey so special. It is now most important to us to give these characters that we love the send off they deserve.”
