Who could have ever imagined that SUPERNATURAL would last all of 15 years? The series, starring Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, has turned into the longest-running sci-fi series in the United States over the years. Back at the end of the first season, the show used the Kansas song “Carry On, My Wayward Son” as an introduction to the season finale. Since then, every season finale has used the song to summarize the narrative. The song has become an anthem for the series and several years ago, Kansas performed the song before SUPERNATURAL’s San Diego Comic-Con panel, delighting the audience full of fans.
It seems only fitting then, that SUPERNATURAL’s series finale would be titled “Carry On”. Sam and Dean Winchesters, with the help of Jack, defeated God in their final season, literally going up against the creator of the universe in an attempt to escape the control he has had over them their entire lives. Now the dust has settled and God is a mere mortal, while Jack has taken his spot as a new, more benevolent, universal ruler and Sam and Dean are free to live their lives as they choose. But when the dust settles, will the brothers be able to carry on? And where, most importantly, will they carry on to? Will they live to fight another day? Will they sacrifice their lives like the heroes they are?
We’ll have to wait until the series finale to find out. In the meantime, browse through photos from the SUPERNATURAL series finale above. The episode will air on November 19 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. At 8:00 p.m. ET/PT that same night, the CW will air a retrospective special about the show.
