Last summer we set out to start our 15th and final season of #Supernatural. The kind folks over at @entertainmentweekly thought they’d take a few pics as we set out on our final journey. Even though we haven’t completed the journey just yet...you can Check out all the pics and the article at https://ew.com/tv/supernatural-stars-cover-ew-to-reflect-on-the-shows-undying-legacy/. Thanks to EW and especially @samhighfill for making us laugh. It was a good day.

Thank you for sharing the road with us @EW, and for always telling the story so beautifully @samhighfill. We are grateful to have had you riding (and writing) shotgun.https://t.co/FoaGSUxoGc
We now know this shoot was the source of the emotional tribute from Jared to Jensen for his birthday:
Of course, it didn't take long for #SPNFamily to add to the fun!

It's Day 3 of this unbelievable stream of heart stopping photos from Entertainment Weekly, Samantha Highfill and Peggy Sirota!

How did the #SPNFamily get so lucky?!
Thanks to WFB's Elle, The WFB was quickly able to confirm that Canadian fans ARE able to order these covers directly from Meredith Corp (parent of EW) after May 1st despite what the website says! Samantha tweeted the details a little later:
