Have you heard of Supernatural? It is almost as popular as Grey’s Anatomy, if not more. These are some of the longest-running shows. It’s amazing just how long Supernatural has managed to wow its audience.
The latest season, that is, season 15 is on hiatus. And fans are now wondering if there will be the 16th season. The CW’s dark show is one of those that people just can’t seem to get enough of—as evidenced by the number of seasons. It seems that they will never get tired of watching this series.
What is Supernatural about?
Supernatural stars Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, and Alexander Calvert. It follows the lives of Winchester brothers—Sam and Dean—as they begin their journey by traveling the country in their 1967 Chevy Impala.
They are accompanied by their angel friend Castiel (Collins) and they hunt down the Supernatural forces that are terrorizing the residents. In the process, they find themselves in a lot of trouble.
However, they managed to get away with it most of the time. The only exception is in season 15, where they are up against God Himself.
It is also in season 15 that there have been multiple character deaths, and also multiple character resurrections. However, you still have to wait a bit for the final episodes to air so that you can watch them.
Supernatural – Renewal status
The creators announced that there would be no season 16, which is disappointing to a lot of folks. However, there is good news also, let’s not forget that. The CW never canceled the series, so we cannot say for sure that the show has been canceled.
The cast and the crew have also stated that the show would not be over soon. Jensen Ackles said, “It’s a long run that I don’t think is ever going to be completed. I think we’re just going to be absent for a while. For how long, I don’t know.I’m not even able to close doors or burn bridges. I think that isn’t very smart. Am I assuming there’s something in the commitment? No. Am I open to having a talk in the future? What’s the harm in that?”
On another occasion, he also said, “I do feel like this isn’t the long goodbye right now,” he continued. “I feel like this is, ‘Let’s hang this in the closet for now, and we’ll dust her off down the road a bit.’”
So the cast and the crew are very much open to making another season. They are willing to work together, so there might be a chance you will see it on the screen. Who is to say that will not happen?
Why is it likely
The coronavirus started, and it shook the world. We all saw how bad it was. Some of the shows had to stop filming, and one of them is Supernatural.
The show was originally supposed to end in May 2020 and there were only seven more episodes to go. But the entire production had to halt with stay at home orders.
However, some believe that this is actually a blessing in disguise because the viewers believe that they would get another season in the form of an installment. So let’s hope it is true folks.
Think about it this way. The creators and the producers of the series have had enough time to think about what is going to happen next.
They can now improvise the script and leave some loose ends, which can be properly tied up in the next season. Also, the longer time they invest in the next season, the better the finale will be. Plus, the fans want another season, so it is likely that CW will give them one.
After all, it is all about what the fans want. If they want another season, and the cast and the crew are willing to give them one, who can really stop it from happening? Keep up the hope, people.
Supernatural Season 16 – When Will it Air?
We have no idea when that will happen. Plus, season 16 hasn’t even been confirmed yet. So we can’t say when it will air.
The creators have to focus on winding up the 15th season with the last 7 episodes. Probably, the episodes will air in 2021 sometime. It is only after that will we know when there will be a season 7. In all likelihood, it will air in 2023.
Supernatural Season 15 Ratings
The first half of season 15 averaged a 0.29 rating in the 18-49 demographic and had almost 1.11 million viewers. That is a downward trend if you compare it to season 14.
The second half of season 15 had an average of 0.3 rating in the 18-49 group and 1 million viewers. Once again, when you compare it to season 15 that is quite a drop.
The Baby Impala
As soon as the show wraps up, Ackles confirmed that he will be taking home the “hero” Baby Impala in which he and his co-star drove around.
“I’m gonna clean her up, but not change anything,” Ackles shared. “I’m gonna need to add an air conditioning unit because we live in Texas. I’m probably gonna get some new speakers, a radio system in there that actually works. But everything else, I’m gonna leave the creak in the doors, the splits in the seats.”
That’s the adventure the car and Ackles will be going on. Looks like they have a pretty fun life planned together. While you watch the remaining episodes of Supernatural, make sure that you catch every detail. Savor every moment.
After all, you never actually know if this will be the last time you ever watch a new episode about Sam and Dean on their adventures to save the world. However, what you can do is to binge-watch the whole series. There are 15 seasons, we are sure you will be busy for quite a while.
