Supernatural Stars Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles On Show's Legacy

While the Supernatural family waits patiently for the series' final run of episodes to see where Sam (Jared Padalecki), Dean (Jensen Ackles), Castiel (Misha Collins), and Jack (Alexander Calvert) end up after their universe-destroying faceoff with God (Rob Benedict), editor Lynn Zubernis and Smart Pop are looking ahead to the series end to celebrate the impact the show's had on its fanbase and pop culture. Set to drop on Tuesday, May 5, In There'll Be Peace When You Are Done: Actors and Fans Celebrate the Legacy of Supernatural looks at the long-running series lasting legacy through photos, fan illustrations, and essays from the cast as well as fans. With a special message from Collins, the book includes writings from Padalecki, Ackles, Richard Speight, Jr. (Gabriel), Andrea Drepaul (Melanie), Carrie Genzel (Linda Bloome/Linda Berman), Julie McNiven (Anna Milton), Tahmoh Penikett (Gadreel), Shoshannah Stern (Eileen Leahy), Brendan Taylor (Doug Stover), Lauren Tom (Linda Tran), and many more.

Ackles: "I'm very proud of what we've done and of the story that we got to tell. Sam Winchester has inspired me, just like he's inspired many fans. Sam is a character who thinks about things differently. From the start, Dean was written as the let's-go-in-guns-blazing one, and Sam was the let's-think-about-this character, carrying a lot of the weight of the moral and ethical burden of decision making. Do you drink demon blood and hulk out so you can save people? Is it worth letting one person die if it's going to save twenty people?" (full exclusive EW excerpt here).
