Jensen Ackles first took the helm as director back in Season 6, when he made his directoral debut in the forth episode “Weekend at Bobby’s”. Since then he has went on to direct a further five episodes in seasons 7 – 11 before deciding to solely focus on acting after his life got a little bit busier with the birth of his twins in 2016. But, with the announcement of the final season he decided it was time to get behind the camera again, one last time. I have added some HQ photos of Jensen behind the scenes directing.
Jensen spoke with several media outlets and this episode is going to be special for a number of reasons. Firstly, there is a fight sequence which Jensen helped flesh out more than it was originally intended and has shot in a way which is brand new for the show. He also talks, without giving too much away, that a character is returning to the show in the guise of an actor Jensen is very excited about having on the show.
One of the most exciting things for Jensen fans is that one of Jensen’s very own songs (recorded under the duo of Jensen and Steve Carlson known together as Radio Company) will be featured in the episode! Sounds of Someday (which you can listen to immediately if you pre-order the album on iTunes) will play over a montage in the episode. The full album, Volume 1, is released on Friday 8 November on iTunes and Spotify.
