When it became known that the long series of demons, angels and monsters, Supernatural, would have a smaller number of episodes with 15 Years Of Supernatural Thank You Memories Shirt for its fourteenth delivery, many thought the end was near. Although the cut corresponds to only four chapters, the red light was lit on the heads of the faithful fanatic who keeps alive the now cult series. However, that is not the case, at least not on this occasion, in the words of its own protagonists, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, who have grown up playing the brothers Dean and Sam Winchester, hunters of a whole spectrum of sinister creatures and also have the help of angel Castiel (Misha Collins).

“I do not know for how long we will continue, but certainly do not see a close end,” says Ackles to be consulted on the subject. “One of the reasons we still do Supernatural is because we still love to do it, we enjoy playing these characters, we love the stories, and the writers keep it fresh and interesting. And judging by the first reactions to the new season Warner Channel is releasing tonight, that’s precisely what’s at stake. The story comes months after the most powerful archangel, Michael, has taken possession of Dean’s body to exterminate humanity, allowing Ackles to turn his interpretation around. “It was difficult, because I had to become someone else in the same physical environment that I’ve been Dean for 13 years. But I’m glad I accepted the challenge and told myself I was going to work hard and get ahead. He even had to speak Arabic for a scene, “it was very demanding, it’s a verse taken from the Koran and you don’t want to spoil it, so they hired an Arabic coach,” continues the 40-year-old actor. “I felt very nervous at first, I hope I made it.
“Michael travels everywhere, analyzing this world, its people and the things in it. At the same time Sam and a group of hunters are pulling their hairs thinking about where Dean might be, how they can bring him back and how to beat Michael without killing him. Obviously everything is going to come to an end, I would say sooner rather than later, but that doesn’t mean that Michael is going to disappear,” he explains in his particular low tone.
As the brothers are separated, the lesser Winchester, takes a position of command. “He is like the de facto leader, I suppose now everything falls to him, but what can he do, he is worried about his brother, and he is with people from another world who want to destroy Michael, without caring about Dean. Sam needs to calm the waters, and he is very good at it,” says Padalecki on his side about his character in the first episodes.
“I enjoy playing Sam’s parts where he knows what he’s supposed to do, but I think I’m enjoying it even more when he commands behind the scenes, he knows his power lies in his brain. I like the thoughtful part, the research-oriented part, more than the physical part, where he wants his muscles to see him, which is also cool, but I like control better,” he laughs.
“I’ve learned a lot from Jared playing Sam. I have a good time with all the people I work with, and that’s no secret, I met the mother of my children on set. We genuinely love each other,” maintains the 36-year-old histrion. “It gives me pleasure to tell stories, and I can’t think of any other movie or TV show I’d rather be in. As an actor I have the possibility to do everything, I can do comedy, play different characters, I can die and resurrect, I can be in Scooby Doo! (last season they were included 15 Years Of Supernatural Shirt in an animated episode of the popular canine). There’s so much I can do in Supernatural that I envy myself, I’m happy to do it. That’s why neither of us foresee what could happen when the story ends. “Every year I try to think ‘wow, this is the last season, how are we going to finish it?’, and that never happens, so I’ve given up predicting how it’s all going to end,” Ackles maintains.
“Sometimes I think it’s a good way to say goodbye to shot dead brothers, but I’d also like to leave history open for some sort of future. There are many programs that are being resumed these days, in fact there are many that started, were remade, and cancelled again during all the time that ours has been on the air. I would love to leave it open, so there can be a future.
“It’s rare to talk about the end of Supernatural, believe me he has thought about it, we have thought about it,” says Padalecki. “As a fan of storytelling I love to read, trilogies are my favorites, and I love to finish the book, because I can always come back and read it again, relive it. That’s why I think brothers have to die, because as a follower of this story that I’m helping to tell, if the kids are still alive, they would still hunt and if they continue hunting I want to see them. So it would be difficult, I think one or both of them have to leave, but if that’s the way it’s going to end, I don’t know, I’m not a writer, but if they keep it open, I guess I would agree,” he concludes.

For now, the pair is preparing to reach another record, this time that of episode number 300, an achievement that producers usually celebrate with something special for fans. Ackles isn’t sure what the story is about, but what he’d like to see. “It’s time to go back and revisit all the memories that have been recorded over the past 13 years, I think it would be very emotional, fun and very effective, I don’t know if that’s what we should do for episode 300, but I think it’s something we’re all waiting to see. What has been made known is that the particular chapter will take place in the town where the Winchesters come from called Lebanon, in the state of Kansas, and how is life in that small place, something that until now had never been highlighted.
Sam, Dean and, of course, Impala have accompanied fans for 14 years on “Supernatural”, a series broadcast on Warner Channel. On the eve of presenting his 300th chapter, El Espectador traveled to the studios to learn about the history behind the scenes. Wineries? It is the first thought that crosses the mind of those who are not aware of the magic of television, the greatness of imagination and human recursion. Yes, they were wineries, about ten, located within a filming complex in Vancouver (Canada). Inside they hid a supernatural magic.
Dean and Sam’s first approach to the world takes place at the entrance to the two-story Warner Brothers studio building in Vancouver. A room at the end of the corridor shelters the first portal in history, which began in 2005 and has been reserving with suspicion the accessories of the series for 14 years. The weapons of the Winchester brothers, the potions of the witch Rowena and the sword of the angel Castiel are actually made of gelatin, fruit, rubber and wood. All objects are meticulously arranged in drawers, tables and shelves up to the ceiling. “The hardest part of the job is bringing the ideas of the production team into reality. Sometimes we have four days to prepare them, eight or fifteen days; that varies according to the time of filming. The best thing about this job is that we remain in a state of constant creativity,” said Karolina Grant, accessory teacher, while showing some of the tools made by her team.
On the other side, in the back of the building, there is a sewing machine, a table full of fabrics and an abundance of coat racks. In the first cellar, wardrobe designer Kerry Weinrauch weaves the magic behind Supernatural. “We work together with the art department to determine the costumes each character will wear. We discuss colors and garments according to the scene,” she says. In her den Weinrauch designs the wardrobe, which is named after the characters: Jack, Mary, Donna, Bobby and Castel, some of the names that can be identified.
So Weinrauch led me to the door that opened the beginning of a journey that would stun whoever followed the series. A place more than twenty meters high and a giant space, more than fifty coat racks, from floor to ceiling, each classified by character. Jack, Mary, Donna, Bobby, Castiel were some of the names that were seen.
“All garments must be graded, because in our series one day a character can die and in two chapters come back to life. So we have to be careful and have everything in order,” Weinrauch said. Passing through the locker room, we left the building through the back door and walked around the parking lot until we reached some camperos buses (two to be exact); there it would be at the entrance to begin to believe in the supernatural. Inside, dark, silent and hot, the vehicles are the refuge of the nine artists who are in charge of making the supernatural a reality.
“There are about 1,200 to 1,700 shots per season, that’s pretty much considering the 14 years of filming,” says Mark Meloche, visual effects supervisor. Then there would be the entrance to another of the wineries. Immensity, wood, cold, incandescent lights were the characteristics of this place. A dark place that housed the dream of every amateur: the bunker of the Winchester brothers.
So close and so far from reality, each element arranged in the bunker is made with precision to simulate real environments. Removable columns made of drywall, ichopor books and cardboard shelves are made like the best version of reality to make sure no one suspects about the implausibility of the Winchesters’ home. The bunker was built based on Eric Kripke’s writing.
According to Jerry Wanick, production designer, once the writer entered the site he asked: “Is this what you imagined when you wrote? Kripke replied, “That’s exactly what I thought!
In one of the offices in the first building we toured, we waited for the stars of the show. Dean and Sam, or better, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, would arrive first. During the conversation with the actors, the obligatory question was asked: how has the series been sustained after so much time? Let’s buy 15 Years Of Supernatural Thank You Memories Shirt Ackles was the first to take the floor and said that it was all about building a family, where more than a team is built an environment in which is the support of the other. For his part Padalecki mentioned that during the seasons have had to surpass deaths, births and deal with different circumstances that make Supernatural a family in which no one is obliged to be one way or another, but every day is valid to surprise.
