, currently on its second season, earned quite a number of positive reviews since it premiered in September 2005. But despite the substantial devoted fan base, the renewal of the series for a third season was perceived by many to be doubtful. In line with this, Jared Padalecki
, one of the lead stars on Supernatural
, encouraged fans to promote the paranormal thriller.
In an interview with TV Guide, Padalecki spoke about his insights on the show, as well as what the viewers can do to help lure in another season. He said, “I'm so removed from the real world that sometimes I lose track of the fact that people are enjoying our show and what we do. We're in our own reality up here, which isn't really reality… We are all worried…we're doing the only thing we can do, which is work on the quality of the show. It is just one of those unfortunate things, since we're in this ridiculous hour on this ridiculous night of television."
Jared talked about being up against the two Thursday night powerhouses ABC's Grey's Anatomy
and CBS' CSI
, saying, "I don't remember ever in my life the No. 1 and 2 [scripted] shows being on in the same hour. We're, like, a welterweight in the ring with Mohammed Ali and George Foreman. We're going to sneak in some punches, but it is a little like we were thrown to the wolves. From what I know, the powers-that-be are happy with what's going on, but unfortunately I think coming back has to do with how many people are watching."
He encouraged viewers to spread the word about the show. "Tell your friends and everybody you can about the show! We love hearing online and in other venues that people are enjoying it. If you know anybody who might be interested in the show but hasn't watched it yet, try to convince them to sit down with you.”
As for the rest of season two, Padalecki affirmed that there‘s still a lot to look forward to, especially the season finale. He added, “I think our final run is fantastic. The episode after Tricia's, which was one of my favorites, is the one where Sam gets some "special lovin'," so to speak. Then we have a great time when Sam and Dean go to Los Angeles to visit a haunted movie set. It gets better from there. Even though we haven't finished filming our final episodes, I think in four months I can see being more proud of Season 2 than of any of the other work I've done.”
To savor the remaining episodes of Supernatural
Season 2, stay glued every Thursday 9/8C on CW.
