Fifteen years. Two brothers. Angels and demons. A story like no other. And one of the most passionate fan bases of all time. That’s Supernatural.
There’ll Be Peace When You Are Done: Actors and Fans Celebrate the Legacy of Supernatural is an emotional look back at the beloved television show Supernatural as it wraps up its final season after fifteen unprecedented years on air.
With heartfelt chapters written by both the series’ actors and its fans—plus full-color photos and fan illustrations—There’ll Be Peace When You Are Done traces Supernatural’s evolution, the memorable characters created by its writers and brought to life by its talented actors, and the many ways in which the show has inspired and changed the lives of both its viewers and cast.
Both a celebration of Supernatural and a way of remembering what made it so special, this book is a permanent reminder of the legacy the show leaves behind and a reminder to the SPN Family to, like the series’ unofficial theme song says, “carry on.”
Featuring chapters from Jared Padalecki (“Sam Winchester”) and Jensen Ackles (“Dean Winchester”), which include some of the most heartfelt and emotional things they’ve previously said about Supernatural that they want fans to remember—plus new reflections about Sam and Dean’s legacy, There’ll Be Peace When You Are Done also includes original contributions from:
- Richard Speight, Jr. (“Gabriel”)
- Chad Lindberg (“Ash”)
- Julie McNiven (“Anna Milton”)
- Tahmoh Penikett (“Gadreel”)
- Shoshannah Stern (“Eileen Leahy”)
- Rick Worthy (“Alpha Vamp”)
- David Haydn-Jones (“Arthur Ketch”)
- Lauren Tom (“Linda Tran”)
- And many more, including a special message from Misha Collins (“Castiel”)
