Supernatural cast and crew members have paid an emotional farewell to the show as they filmed the series finale.
The last episode of the U.S. fantasy drama created by Eric Kripke was shot on Thursday (September 10, 2020) after spending 15 seasons on the air, prompting sentimental goodbyes on set and online.
“This was the first #Supernatural scene we shot,” showrunner Eric wrote on Twitter, attaching a gif.
“Today will be the last. I’m grateful & love you all beyond words. But it’s only over when you say it is, #SPNFamily. In the words of Kim Manners (RIP): Kick It In The A**.”
Other stars also paid tribute to late Supernatural producer and director Kim Manners, who died from lung cancer in 2009, in their farewell messages to the show by repeating his tagline, “kick it in the a**”.
“So it’s here. Last day of principal photography on Supernatural, my home for 15 years,” Jim Beaver, who played mentor character Bobby Singer on the program, wrote on Twitter in a caption attached to a close-up image of his face. “Getting ready to go to work on it for the final time. Deep feelings. Very deep. I love these people. Okay. Let’s go kick it in the a** one last time.”
Supernatural leading man Misha Collins, who depicts angel Castiel on the spooky show, took to social media to honor how many lives the series has transformed since it launched in 2005.
“#ThankYouSupernatural. You’ve changed my life in so many ways and you changed the world for the better. Fight on,” Misha wrote.
The final seven episodes of Supernatural will air in the U.S. from October 8th.
