Supernatural is coming to an end after 15 seasons. What will Jensen Ackles do with his extra time? He’s looking forward to the quiet life.

While many Supernatural fans share their dreams for the final season, the actors are looking ahead at what they’ll do with their time. Jensen Ackles is one who is just looking forward to the quiet life.

During an interview with Us Weekly, he shared that he’s looking forward to being a present dad. He and his wife, Danneel Ackles, often joke that she’s a “single mom with three kids with a sugar daddy in another country.” And while it’s a joke, sometimes it will definitely feel that way.

In a way, I can relate. Right now, we’re in the middle of a movie. My husband is away in another part of the country while I look after our two girls while they finish out school for the year. It was a choice we made but always had a six-week end-date. I couldn’t even imagine doing this for the long-term with no end in sight for a long time. I’m sure Danneel is looking forward to having her husband back once filming as finished.

The decision to live in two different countries is a big one — and I don’t blame them for it. I know some fans wonder why Ackles’ and Jared Padalecki’s families don’t live in Vancouver with them, but that would mean family visas. And why should they move house when, at one point, the stars didn’t even know if their show would be renewed each year? The children would need some sort of stability and that’s what Danneel and Genevieve have offered by living in Austin, Texas while J2 work in Vancouver, Canada.

And while they don’t regret their decisions, it’s clear that they’re all looking forward to the men being more present. This was the reason the show season was cut to 20 episodes for Season 14, as a way to see if it was possible to keep the show going for longer. Jared and Jensen want to be present in their families’ lives.

Jensen Ackles is clearly looking forward to it. You can see in the video interview that he’s happy to talk about what’s to come. He doesn’t know what that is but he’s excited for it. More importantly, he’s clearly happy about being able to spend more time with his wife and three children. And we couldn’t be happier for him.
