Supernatural star Misha Collins has penned an emotional letter to fans following the news that the show will come to an end with season 15.

The actor, who plays Castiel in the series, promised them a final "season you deserve" as he spoke about the impact the show has had on him.

"In 2008, my life changed forever," he began the letter, referencing the year that he joined the cult series.

"What was supposed to be a small part lasting a couple of episodes on a genre TV show turned into over a decade of my career.

"I had no idea that when I stepped onto that set for what I thought was a simple acting gig, I was actually being welcomed into a family – not just a cast-and-crew family (though certainly that – I've found some of my closest friends in Jared, Jensen, & so many others in our cast and crew), but in all of you... our SPNFamily."

Collins admitted that there had "been a lot to mourn and a lot to celebrate" over the years, before speaking about the break after finishing filming the 14th season.

"It's the first days of my last-ever Supernatural hiatus," he continued. "When we go back after the break, we'll do everything in our power to give you an incredible season you deserve, one more time.

"We're at the threshold of an ending – but remember, all 'endings' are really just a beginning in disguise. We may have been brought together by this show, but we're all family now – and that's not going anywhere. We've already impacted the world for the better... and we're just getting started.

"From the bottom of my heart, thank you all for adopting me into the #SPNFamily. I'll never stop being grateful, and can't wait to see what's coming next for us... together."

Many cast members have been speaking about the show coming to an end since the news broke, with star Jensen Ackles promising that they will "go big" in the final episodes.

Supernatural airs on Thursday nights on The CW in the US, while E4 airs the show in the UK.
