Supernatural star Jensen Ackles thinks that the coronavirus delay will improve the final episodes of the long-running show.
Supernatural is, of course, the CW’s longest-running series and it seemed as if it was finally coming to an end. Unfortunately, the series encountered one last obstacle that will extend the show’s life in the form of the coronavirus. Last month it was announced that the final episodes of Supernatural were going to be delayed because of ongoing concerns over the epidemic. While the majority of the episodes had been filmed, the various visual effects departments had been shut down due to the pandemic. However, star Jensen Ackles thinks that the delay will help improve upon the show’s final episodes.
In Supernatural, Jensen Ackles plays Dean Winchester, the younger of the two Winchester brothers and has been the character’s primary actor since the show began back in 2005. While speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Jensen Ackles commented on the ongoing situation with the coronavirus. However, he also seemed to think that it would allow everyone involved with the series to properly take their time with the final episodes of the long-running series:
Obviously, it’s a horribly unfortunate situation we’re in, but the silver lining is that it gives us an opportunity to recharge. We had just finished episode 18, we shot one day of episode 19, and I was reading these two monster scripts thinking, ‘It’s like we’re at the end of a marathon and they want us to sprint for the last two miles.’ I feel like this almost gives us an opportunity to refocus and go into the last two episodes and hit them with everything we got. I think having this break might service the last few episodes better.
What do you all think of Jensen Ackles’ words? Do you think the coronavirus delay will allow Supernatural to end on a better note? What have you thought of the final season so far? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
