After a car accident, the star is "on the mend" and is hoping to return to filming on The CW's western series this week.
After his co-star admitted at a fan event in New Jersey, Padalecki was involved in a car accident on Tuesday.
"Hey, you deserve to thank everyone for their outpouring of love," Padalecki said. "I'm definitely on the mend, but I'm hoping to resume filming later this week. I'm so fortunate to have received the best treatment and be surrounded by people who love me. So grateful for everyone's #SPNFamily #WalkerFamily #akf."
After 'a very bad automobile accident,' Ackles explained that Padalecki was "lucky to be alive."
"I don't know if you guys know what's going on," Ackles told the crowd of his onscreen brother. "He was in a very nasty car accident. He wasn't driving, he was in the passenger seat, and he's fortunate to be alive."
"And not only that, but he's at home recovering which the fact that he's not in a hospital right now is blowing my mind because I saw the car." The actor added that the "airbag packs a punch" and shared that Padalecki had admitted that the accident had "gone 12 rounds with [Mike] Tyson."
In The CW's Supernatural, which premiered in 2005 and ran for 15 seasons on the network before coming to an end in 2020, Ackles and Padalecki played Dean and Sam Winchester.
