Originally it was intended to conclude its 15th and final season earlier in March of 2020 but had to stop production mid-season due to Covid-19.

However, the 15th season is back and plans to conclude its wild journey in November of 2020!

Spoilers ahead:

Before it had to halt production, “Supernatural” surprised its viewers by revealing that God has been the “Big Bad” of the show the entire time. Through all the fights with ghosts, vampires, werewolves, demons, and other creatures, the Winchesters have met their match in the final season that will decide the story’s course.

The season 15 episodes that have already aired so far said goodbye to beloved characters and given its final farewell to others and fans can only expect more of it when the season concludes.

To date, “Supernatural” has been one of the most successful shows to ever air on the CW network. Bringing in more adult viewers than any other show. So, some have wondered why the show is even ending if the ratings are so good.

There are a few reasons, but essentially it was just time. At VegasCon 2019 the shows main characters Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester) and Jared Padalecki (Sam Winchester) explained why:

“This was a community decision,” Padalecki promised. “The network and studio did not say like, hey guys, get outta here.”

“It wasn’t an easy decision,” Ackles said “It was months and months if not years of discussion between he and I, between the rest of the cast, between crew, between our writers, between our producers, between the studio, between the network. Nobody wanted to see this show fizzle out.”

“It was everyone wanting to do the biggest service to this show that we could by going out strong,” he explained. “It just seemed like the writing was kind of on the wall as to when that was happening. I think everybody kind of felt that it was coming soon, and so it was just taking that leap of faith and going like, well guys, let’s get out the paint and paint that finish line, and hold our heads high, because what we’ve accomplished is unlike any other.”

Both fans and cast alike will miss the hit show “Supernatural,” and the joy it has brought them all for over a decade. Many castmates have made posts on social media saying goodbye to the show, thanks for being apart of it, messages to their castmates or videos/ pics of the sets filming for the last time.

The series will air its last episode on November 19, 2020, on the CW Network, but for those who would prefer to wait and binge the final batch of new episodes on Netflix, they should be on Netflix by the end of November.
