Supernatural stars address if God will be evil in final season
Note: There are spoilers for Supernatural season 14 and 15 in the article below.
The Winchester boys have definitely battled some nasty foes on Supernatural — Leviathans, all manner of demons and even Lucifer! Next up on the list: God!
We're talking actual God, or Chuck as he prefers to be called. NCIS: New Orleans star Rob Benedict turned up in the season 14 finale as the creator of the universe to reveal he'd been guiding every decision in Sam and Dean's lives.
But once they veered from his guidance, Chuck opened the Gates of Hell, setting up a final season where the Winchesters will have to once again face some of the most feared nemeses from the past.
In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jensen Ackles confirmed that the season 15 premiere picks up immediately after the jaw-dropping finale left off last year.
"We start right back up in season 15, and it is a bit of a triage situation,” Ackles teased. "They gotta get out of there, they gotta find some shelter, and they gotta figure out what to do."
His co-star Misha Collins and Jared Padalecki mentioned that the major conflict of the season will be the Winchesters questioning whether God is actually evil.
"This is, as far as we know, the most powerful being in the universe, and he’s against us,” Collins explained.
Padalecki added: “But we're also struggling with: Is Chuck evil, or is he just trying to objectively write a story that’s exciting which controls our lives?"
This struggle will leave a large body count, with co-showrunner Andrew Dabb already confirming that the Winchesters will "lose people" along the way.
Supernatural airs on The CW in the US and on E4 in the UK.
