‘Supernatural’ Sets Premiere Date for Final 7 Episodes

For many Supernatural fans, 2019 was a year of preparation for the series’ final season.

When the pandemic started spreading back in March, so did Hollywood shutdowns. The CW was one of many networks that had to adjust its 2020 broadcast and production schedules. In May, it issued a revised schedule.

Now that filming is set to resume, Supernatural lovers are looking forward to the show’s return in the fall. The beloved Winchester brothers, Castiel, and Jack are due back for the slay of their lifetime (and timeline).

The road so far on ‘Supernatural’ season 15

A quick recap of the last few episodes reminds us that Jack is somehow the key to Chuck’s downfall. Recruited by Billie from the Empty to intervene in the final apocalypse, he’s trying to regain his position back into the Winchester brotherhood while fulfilling his role as a hero.

The last episode that aired before the COVID-19 lockdowns introduced trust fund Winchesters from an alternate world and took the OG brothers, Cass, and Jack down to Hell. Jack retrieved the Occultum from the Garden of Eden, swallowed it, and felt guilty about Mary’s death.

In one scene, Castiel was tortured by the Shadow while talking to Ruby in the Empty and we wonder if that will come into play later. The Winchester doubles were sent off to Brazil, but the fab four were back together to save the world once more.

‘Supernatural’ Season 15 to air in October

At the end of March, The CW decided to move Supernatural’s last seven episodes to its fall schedule. The series still had two episodes left to film and rather than leaves fans hanging, the network decided to air the last group of episodes together.

On Aug. 17, The CW announced that Supernatural will premiere on Thursday, Oct. 8 at 8 p.m. EST. The series finale will air on November 19 at 9 p.m., but it will be preceded by a special tribute show called Supernatural: The Long Way Home, per a press release.

Fans will be treated to a celebratory television event that night at 8 p.m. that reviews all the precious years of monsters, demons, gods, family, and heroics. Are you ready?

New shows are coming to The CW too

If you’re wondering what show will fill Supernatural’s time slot once the series ends, that information isn’t clear yet. But season 3 of The Outpost will follow the series at 9 p.m.

In September, The CW will debut World’s Funniest Animals on Fridays at 9 p.m. Beginning Oct. 6, Swamp Thing will make its broadcast premiere after streaming season 1 on the network’s digital platform. Look out for it on Tuesdays at 8 p.m.

Patrick Dempsey stars in the new series Devils, which is about a global financial conspiracy. The new show will start airing on Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. followed by season 2 of Coroner.

Cast your Supernatural theories out into the ether until it’s time to meet back up with the Winchesters and the rest of the crew in October. Mark your calendars for the last stretch of this ride.
