Tomorrow 10/10/2019 will be the start of Supernatural season 15 which is the last season of the series.Season 15 poster
The main cast Jensen, Jared and Misha has made a video back then (yeah, I follow them on facebook) announcing to the fans that season 15 is going to be the last season and it was by their own choice. They wanted the series to finish off strong not sizzle away.
I spend better part of my life with this series, the only TV series that I stick around with and that is saying something considering I'm not into series much less long running series. I have very very mixed feeling about the whole thing, I wanted it to end because admittedly the story kinda going everwhere now but at the same time I just cannot let go of the Winchester brothers.
In one article I read about Supernatural the long lasting of this show is made possible by the excellent casting and I am absolutely agree. I love the chemistry between Jared and Jensen and they are the reason I stick around because even when the plot is not to my liking I love their interaction and they can truly pass as real brothers (although they don't look alike). I remember telling myself back in the day if one of them gone (leave the show for whatever reason) I'm not gonna continue watching it anymore and guessed what both of them stick around and so do I. Also, Jensen and Jared was given the honour to decide to keep the show going basically Supernatural has come to a point where it has strong enough base that if they want to keep on going they can.Season 1 Winchester bros, so young.
Another thing about the show I like it it playfullness, I mean have you watched the Scooby Doo episode? What about the Western episode or the breaking meta episode or the thousand time Dean died. In the later seasons the past 5 or 6 I have enjoyed the one off non-core-plot heavy episode. Like I said the plot has been everywhere but these one off episode really made my day. It has been truly enjoyable ride despite the ups and down. The favourite season would still be the ones during Kripke as showrunner.
From various sources it seems like they preparring a lot for this final season including the come back of the lost long half Winchester bro whom had fallen off the map in Supernatural world since his death. The season also fairly short with only 20 episode just like the previous (the shortest season was during the writer strike back in 2008) when usually it 22 to 23 episodes. I don't think there will be any others series for me like Supernatural in my life time anymore.Another main character in Supernatural Baby. Wonderful muscle car.
I thank my sister who introduced me to Supernatural, I was not into supernatural story (ghost stuff) still don't now but Supernatural is the exception. I also kinda love and hate her for this, look what she made me become, a sappy Supernatural fan. I followed this series since the first season that was 14 years ago and known only one other person in RL that like it as much as I do and managed to convert one other person into a fan. Supernatural has fantastic fan community I enjoy all the meme and fan stuff/share especially videos of Supernatural panels in cons (there won't be Supernatural panel at SDCC anymore next year). The cast and staff made the show great and the fan made it welcoming. I'm happy I was apart of the ride.
I think I'm going to cry emotinal tears everytime I listen to Carry On Wayward Son by Kansas. (Gosh, I'm gonna miss them so much.)
p/s: Complete DVD boxset I'm ready! Should I go for Bluray though but that gonna be pricey. Dunno we'll see when it's out.
