“Supernatural” reaches a new milestone on Tuesday night as it airs its 200th episode.
Jensen Ackles, who plays Dean Winchester on The CW show, told Access Hollywood he never could have predicted they would make it to this point.
“I didn’t think we’d make it to Season 2. There’s such a high failure rate with television these days and it was just the same back when we started in 2005. Just getting on air was like an 87 percent failure rate,” Jensen told Access in Vancouver last month on the red carpet at the “Supernatural” 200th episode party.
“The odds were stacked against us, so just to make it through Season 1 and get a pick up to Season 2 was a huge sigh. The fact that we’re now talking about 200 episodes? I don’t think we really understand it and I don’t think I will understand it until the show is over and I stand back and I’m able to actually look back and reflect upon what it actually was ’cause I’m still in it right [now] and we’re still in the trenches and we’re still fighting the war and it ain’t over,” he added.
