It seems like forever that Supernatural has been on the air. The series made its premiere on The CW way back in 2005. Over the years, the brother duo of Sam and Dean Winchester has earned popularity all over the world. With them returning every season with new mysteries and lots of new supernatural beings.
The show is one of the longest-running series ever. That is sufficient to prove the show’s quality, with each season earning consistent viewing numbers to support the claim. However, midway through the 15th season, the show experienced a major obstacle. That has made fans concerned about the schedule of the ongoing season.
Why is Supernatural Delayed?
The premiere of the show was well on time. The 15th season was going to be 20 episodes long. With the final episode being two hours long. However, the show’s production brought to a close midway through the season because of COVID-19.
Andrew Debb twitted, “We have filmed through episode 18; however, our visual effects and sound departments have closed because of the outbreak. So, right now, the episodes can’t be finished.” The producers were determined to complete the season by splitting it into two parts. The first 13 episodes aired by March 2020, with the rest announced to release later.
When will the Final Episode of Supernatural Release on Netflix?
There seems to be good news as the final seven episodes of the series are going to return this Fall. The production briefly disrupted by the measures enforced due to the pandemic. However, filming resumed in Vancouver this August, and the show was back on track.
The show returns in early October on The CW. But subscribers of Netflix will have to wait till November 19. The rest of the episodes will be landing thick and fast. And the final episode will premiere on November 27, 2020. It is going to be two hours long special. The first hour dedicated to looking back at the show’s past. It will title it Supernatural: The Long Road Home.
What’s Next for Supernatural?
For the longest-running show on The CW, this does not seem to be the end. The producers have expressed multiple times their desire to continue the journey. Jensen Ackles revealed earlier, “I’ve always thought that there was a possibility of five years down the road, getting the call and saying, ‘Hey, let’s do a little short-order action for a streaming network and bring it back for six episodes.'”
It is clear that the show’s run on The CW is over. In case this wish of Ackles fulfilled, a likely destination for the series might be HBO Max. The show is a property of Warner Brothers. Therefore HBO Max seems to be a more plausible option over CBS All Access.
The show has had a long and fruitful spell on television. It has earned fans everywhere and will look to sign off with a blast. Fans will be waiting in anticipation for how the season wraps up. And will be equally hopeful about the show returning once again. While Season 15 is the end of the Supernatural path, you never know what might happen next.
