Supernatural Series Finale Synopsis
The finale episode of Supernatural is called “Carry On.” According to the vague official synopsis: “After 15 seasons, the longest-running sci-fi series in the US is coming to an end. Baby, it’s the final ride for saving people and hunting things.” The episode was written by co-showrunner Andrew Dabb and directed by co-showrunner Bob Singer. Keeping it in the family.
Can we expect the return of some familiar faces—or are Sam and Dean literally the only people left on Earth forever? While it does sound like some familiar faces will make an appearance, COVID filming restrictions made the return of someone like Jeffrey Dean Morgan much more difficult.
“Look, COVID was limiting, especially when it came to the last two [episodes],” Andrew Dabb told TVLine (via Newsweek). “And there were certainly people we would have liked to have brought back like Samantha Smith [who played Mary Winchester], like Jeffrey Dean Morgan. People who have been such core parts of the show for so long. But unfortunately, because of COVID and some other things, doing a big supersized guest cast family reunion was just off the table.”
