"Hey y'all! I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of love," Padalecki wrote on social media accompanied by a photo of himself with his daughter.

"I'm definitely on the mend and hoping to return to filming later this week. I'm so lucky to have had the best care and be surrounded by people who love me. So grateful for everyone."

Padalecki currently stars in the lead role of The CW's Walker, which is currently in the middle of airing its second season. The CW has listed May 5 as the airdate for the show's Season 2 finale. The network has already announced Walker will return for a third season.

"I miss my buddy," Ackles told the audience at the Supernatural fan event.

"He sends his love. I spoke with him yesterday. He's sad he can't be here. I don't know if you guys know what's going on. He was in a very bad car accident. He wasn't driving, he was in the passenger seat, and he's lucky 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."
