He said, "I want it to end in a way that does justice to the 14 1/2 years we spent on this show. You're not going to please everybody. You can't."
As the calendar has turned its page to August, the final season of Supernatural is around the corner. It was previously announced that it will be a 20-episode season, and it also marks the end of the show's momentous run on The CW. Though fans can't wait to see what's in store in this final batch of episodes, Supernatural star Jensen Ackles says they won't be able to please everyone with the finale the show has planned.
Jensen Ackles on the #Supernatural finale: "I want it to end in a way that does justice to the 14 1/2 years we spent on this show. You're not going to please everybody; you can't." But for the fans, "it should feel right." It's unbelievable that this show has lasted 15 years!— Gary Levin (@GaryMLevin) 4 August 2019
Speaking during The CW's summer TCA Press Tour stop, Jensen mentioned that he wants the show to end in a way that is going to be satisfying for the audience after having spent nearly a decade and a half on the show. But, he thinks that not everyone will be happy with the way it will end. He said, "I want it to end in a way that does justice to the 14 1/2 years we spent on this show. You're not going to please everybody. You can't."

There are only a handful of shows that have eclipsed Supernatural by its run, and both Jensen and series co-star Jared Padalecki admitted they wanted to go out on their own terms and wrap the show up as well they could. Padelecki told the audience, "This was a community decision. The network and the studio did not say, ‘hey, guys, get out of here, you’re done."

Ackles added, "It wasn't an easy decision. It was months and months, if not years, of discussion between he and I, between the rest of the cast, between the crew, between our writers, between our producers, between the studio, between the network. Nobody wanted to see this show fizzle out. I think that it was everyone wanting to do the biggest service to the show that we could by going out strong. It just seemed like the writing was kind of on the wall as to when that was happening. Everybody kind of felt that it was coming soon, and so it was just taking that leap of faith of going like, 'Well guys, let's get out the paint and paint that finish line because what we've accomplished is unlike any other.'"
