Yesterday, The CW announced the glorious news that “Supernatural” will be coming back for its 12th season this fall. What may be even more glorious news is learning that the groundwork is already in place for there to be a thirteenth.
According to Deadline, show stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles already had contracts in place for the two of them to continue doing the show for two more years provided that the network wants them. There is no guarantee of a season 13 just yet, but given current ratings and fan response we’d be shocked to see it end before then.
Is it possible that the series could even go into a season 14 or 15? In theory, it’s certainly possible. What we know at the moment is that network programming head Mark Pedowitz is a noted fan of the show, and if it continues to make money he’s thrilled to keep it around. Everyone involved also still seems to enjoy making it, even if it does at times require strange hours and working extremely long days. The benefits ultimately outweigh any of the negatives that come as a result.
Now that we’ve said all of this, let’s just hope that there are some fun storylines to come. The show has already made some bold moves this season courtesy of Castiel / Lucifer and also the whole overarcing story with Amara, so it will be rather interesting to see how they opt to tie some of these up. Of course, we’ll have some more insight into all of that and then some when it is made clear to us.
