As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Jared Padalecki, along with his co-stars, Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins, broke the hearts of Supernatural fans everywhere by announcing The CW series was finally coming to an end.
After being in production since September of 2005, the three actors announced Season 15 would be the final season of the series during a very emotional video clip they posted on several different social media platforms.
Padalecki, known for his role as Sam Winchester in the series, went with something a little more personal on his Instagram profile. It was eight hours ago that the 36-year-old Supernatural actor shared a throwback photo from Season 1 featuring himself and his co-star, Jensen.
“I am so incredibly grateful for the family that we’ve all built together. I love y’all and am more appreciative of y’all than my meager vocabulary could hope to describe,” Jared penned after announcing that Season 15 will be the final season of the series. Padalecki also put emphasis on the fact that the photo was a throwback to the very first season of the series when it all began.
“I’m also typing through tears. So, please forgive me. ‘Til next time. #WinchestersNeverDie,” the actor added at the end of the emotional post.
With just shy of 5 million followers on Instagram, Padalecki’s fans wasted no time showering the tear jerking Instagram post with 1 million likes and over 50,000 comments.
Unsurprisingly, the comments section of the post was filled with Instagram users posting several sad and crying emoticons as they discussed how heartbroken they felt about the announcement.
Using the hash tag “spnfamily,” many fans begged Jared not to cry, as the Supernatural family would continue to live on and they would continue to support the actor on his future endeavors.
Jim Beaver, known for his role in Supernatural as Bobby Singer, took a less emotional and more humorous approach to the announcement.

The 68-year-old actor teased his 971,000 Twitter followers that the announcement of The CW series ending broke the same day that the Muller report was handed over to the attorney general, and that it was the better of the two stories.
A few hours later, the actor took to Twitter again to remind Supernatural fans that “Family don’t end.”
Two hours later, he posted the same quote, which was a famous line of his character in the series, once more.
Family don’t end.

Despite having a significantly smaller following than his co-stars, Beaver’s tweets still managed to accumulate several thousands of likes and hundreds of comments.
In the comments, many fans criticized the actor for “making them cry again” after they’d just managed to dry up their tears following the news that the series was coming to an end.
