'Supernatural' Finale: Jensen Ackles On How Season 7 Ends And What's To Come In Season 8

'Supernatural's' Jensen Ackles On The Unprecedented Finale

It's a good week for "Supernatural" fans. Friday is the Season 7 finale (9 p.m. ET), and the CW just announced that next season, the long-standing series will move from its Friday death slot to Wednesdays, behind the network's much-anticipated newcomer, "Arrow."

At The CW upfronts presentation in New York on Thursday, "Supernatural" star Jensen Ackles teased the Season 7 finale, which will see the Winchester brothers (Ackles' Dean and Jared Padalecki's Sam) attempt to take down the Leviathans -- and Dick Roman -- for good.

"We will find Dean in a situation at the end of the season that he's never been in," Ackles told HuffPost TV.

"Two of the fan favorites find themselves in a massive predicament," the actor added. "There's a big attempt to handle the Leviathan situation once and for all. Whether that works or not is yet to be seen. It definitely gives us somewhere to go in Season 8. There's a lot of loose ends that could get tied up."

But, some things will remain untied, which is a difficult balance Ackles said "Supernatural" has mastered. "That's a very delicate process, but I think it's something that we've been able to accomplish in the past and I have no doubt that we'll pull it off this time, as well," the star said about resolving storylines and throwing in some cliffhangers.

As for the series' new timeslot (Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET in the fall), Ackles gave the passionate "Supernatural" audience all the credit, and admitted that he thinks it will do the show good.

"It's a great pat on the back that they moved us out of Friday -- which, you know, we were doing fine, it's just a really tough time slot. And a lot of times, it can be considered the night that shows go to die. So not only did we not die, we survived and we grew and I think that that's a big testament to the fans and how supportive they are and how loud they can be about our show," Ackles said. "So now, we're moved back to mid-week and we're paired with another comic in 'Arrow' -- I think we really found our legs when we were paired with 'Smallville,' and even though 'Supernatural' wasn't originally a comic, we now have a comic ... So the fact that we're going back and getting paired with something of that genre, I think is only going to do good."

The Season 7 finale of "Supernatural" airs Friday, May 18 at 9 p.m. ET. "Supernatural" will return with Season 8 on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET in the fall.
