Though the cast isn't filming a movie, the ATX Television Festival Panel hosted by Entertainment Weekly – and viewable in full above – did stir up some hilarious and even heartbreaking revelations.
Here are five things we learned from the panel Saturday night:

If you're still reeling from Wednesday's finale of Supernatural, levity has arrived in the form of a mashup that combines the Winchester brothers with Taylor Swift.
The "Shake It Off" parody stars Hilly and Hannah Hindi of The Hillywood Show, who are delightful as Dean and Castiel, respectively, and SPN alum Osric Chau (R.I.P. Kevin Tran) stars as Sam, wearing a truly spectacular wig.
The video is pretty perfect – a favorite moment is when Dean shakes and shimmies in between two dead bodies while brandishing the First Blade – but the real treat for SPN fans comes at the end of the video, when several of the show's biggest stars make cameos.

Jensen Ackles Teams Up with Supernatural Costar Jared Padalecki to Raise Mental Health Awareness (Plus, What's in Store for the Finale)

With his charity campaign "Always Keep Fighting," Supernatural star Jared Padalecki raised ample funds for To Write Love on Her Arms, a non-profit organization that helps those struggling with depression, addiction and suicidal ideation. However, he was most keenly interested in destigmatizing mental illness following the suicide of a close friend.
Thanks to the help of the Supernatural fandom, which continues to thrive even as the show gears up for its 10th season finale, the T-shirt campaign was a rousing success.
Now, Padalecki and costar Jensen Ackles have joined forces. The two have set up a joint, donor-advised fund – "a junior version of a foundation," Ackles tells PEOPLE – to support a variety of like causes that, chiefly, work to help those suffering from mental illness and mood disorders, among other causes. In the future, the pair may even decide to partner up with costar Misha Collins' foundation, Random Acts, but Ackles tells PEOPLE that they're just getting their feet wet with their "junior foundation" for now.
In a chat with PEOPLE, Ackles, 37, reveals his personal reasons for joining the charitable fray and how he helped Padalecki when he "went down a dark road" while filming the third season of Supernatural. Ackles also shares that he, too, has dealt with these issues and says it's not only important to have somebody in your life to listen to you when things get dark, but also to have the courage to reach out and ask for help.
These issues are also germane to Ackles' current plotline on Supernatural as his character, Dean, fights against the Mark of Cain which, without a cure, may overtake him completely. (Yes, don't worry – we also chatted about what's next for the Winchester brothers.)
