Supernatural is finally ending after an amazing 15 season-run, and we can't wait to see how the story of Sam and Dean Winchester is concluded. However, co-showrunner Andrew Dabbs has revealed that, thanks to COVID-19, they had to make some major changes to the ending.

Speaking to EW, he explained: "We did a rewrite once we knew what our COVID rules were going to be for episodes 19 and 20, and it changed some things, it did. Particularly in episode 20, there were things planned that just aren't feasible anymore."

"What it did not change was the story or the emotions, or anything else. It changed some of the set dressing, it changed some of the circumstances, but it didn't change where we were going or, honestly, in a large way, how we got there. So, in that way, I feel very lucky."

Jensen Ackles, who plays Dean, added that "we still get to the same place" despite having to make some changes. He said: "I read through the original draft [of the finale] when it first came out just as a fan, because I was like, 'How did they put it together?' I knew the end result but I didn't know how exactly they were going to get there, so I quickly read through the script.

"That was back in early March. And then I put it down. Then COVID hit and we all went on break and I was like, 'Okay well I assume it's going to change so I'll just wait until the new draft comes out. To be honest, it didn't really change. How we got there involved a little bit of changing but we still get to the same place." 

Supernatural follows Sam and Dean, two brothers who are trained up as hunters of supernatural beings by their father from a young age following the death of their mother at the hands of a demon.
