The CW Shares Revised Schedule for 2020-2021 and ‘Supernatural’ Finale
Television and film productions postponed due to COVID-19 are slowly being rescheduled with firm restart or release dates.
In late March, The CW shuffled its roster around, giving some shows such as Riverdale early finales and others like DC’s Stargirl a jump ahead. Supernatural’s final season was also affected, but the network just shared its revised premiere schedule for its current crop of shows.
Most will hit your screen in January 2021, but a few will arrive this fall. Here’s a look at which series are returning and which will make their debut.
‘Supernatural’ will return in the fall

In a move that made fans happy, it was decided to drop the last seven episodes together to complete the story of the Winchesters. It’s welcome news for the Supernatural family.
The series will return this fall in its Thursday night timeslot at 8 p.m. EST. Stay tuned for the date.
