Why does Supernatural need to end? Recently, CW boss Mark Pedowitz explained why the TV show is ending after 15 seasons, EW reports.
The long-running drama series centers on the paranormal adventures of the Winchester brothers, Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki). The cast also includes Misha Collins and Alexander Calvert.
During this year’s summer TCA press conference, Pedowitz explained why Supernatural is ending this season. Pedowitz said that he had a “very, very long, sad, heartbreaking discussion” with the show’s stars, as well as Warner Bros. Television president Peter Roth.
“We all came to understand what the guys wanted to do,” Pedowitz said, explaining that Ackles and Padalecki wanted to go out while the show was “still relevant.” Additionally, Pedowitz cited spending time with their families and seeing “what else was out in the world” as the guys’ reasons for ending the show.
However, there may be a chance for a future revival. Star Jensen Ackles recently teased a possible reunion in the future, TVLine reports:
It’s a long journey that I don’t think is ever going to be over. I think we’re just going to go away for a while. For how long, I don’t know.”
