Despite a powerful boost in ratings this season, Supernatural has not been picked up for a fifth season by the CW. While chatting with the show's very own Jared Padalecki, who plays demon hunting brother Sam Winchester, it became clear that he was uncertain about the series' future. No one is positive that Supernatural will be returning next year, and when asked about season four's finale, he said that it just might be the last we see of Sam and Dean.
Everyone on set is hopeful that the popular horror drama, which revolves around two spook-snaring brothers, will continue to thrive. But Padalecki, doing the press rounds for his upcoming horror remake Friday the 13th, said that creator Eric Kripke was indeed preparing a series ending climax that would wrap everything up. Kripke is planning to end it all this spring, but if there is a last minute pick-up, he does have a cliffhanger waiting in the wings that will be added at the last second.
Jared says that if the series continues into a fifth season, it will revolve around Dean's revelation as an angel. And that season five would for sure be the show's last.

Friday the 13th opens in theaters nationwide on Friday, February 13th, 2009.
