Just as Arrow suits up for its final episodes of Season 5, the end is already here. The end for all CW shows, that is, as everyone from Supergirl to Jane The Virgin and those sexy murder-teens at Riverdale set season (or series) finale dates from May through June.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s long list of genre credits let the boys of Supernatural have a bit of fun with their dad busting skulls on The Walking Dead, but the two crossing paths onscreen is another matter. A familiar foe popped up on last night’s Supernatural, connecting universes with logic more twisted than barbed wire.
Lest you think the reign of the Super-s at The CW was anywhere close to ending, the network passed out a generous round of renewals on Sunday, Not only is the DC foursome of Arrow, Flash, Supergirl and Legends renewed for new seasons, but so too will Supernatural return, among others.
Supernatural has run long enough to share The CW with both Smallville and the current generation of Arrow, Flash, Supergirl and Legends, as well as their many crossovers. We’d never expect Sam and Dean to drive the Impala through Central City, but it seems the Winchesters very nearly took a trip to the Smallville set.
Talk of Supernatural’s inevitable end seemed loudest around a tenth or eleventh season, or at least development of a spinoff. We’re a few deep into Season 12 now, with no immediate signs of stopping, but despite recent chatter of ending the series around 300 episodes, star Jensen Ackles isn’t willing to put a number on Supernatural’s ending just yet.
Jeffrey Dead Morgan is something of a TV vagabond, to the point that few expected to see him in another horror-tinged genre series while Supernatural was still airing. Now that the erstwhile papa Winchester has found a home cracking skulls on The Walking Dead, however, Supernatural star Jensen Ackles is having a bit of fun over Twitter.
Eleven seasons of The CW’s Supernatural have defied expectations already, raising the eternal question of when Sam and Dean might finally park the Impala for good. Heading into Season 12, however, both stars and producers are aiming for 300 episodes, which could mean a series finale in a shortened fourteenth season.
Welp, if ever you wanted to overload on TV superheros, have we got a Comic-Con for you! Warner Bros. TV has officially loaded up on 21 series headed to San Diego this year, from Flash to Supergirl to Powerless, Justice League Action, and a few non-superhero series like The Big Bang Theory, The 100, and Animaniacs. You may have heard of them.
The CW looks more and more like DC’s go-to network than ever, and the full fall 2016 premiere roster will stand as proof. Not only do we know when The Flash Season 3 will kick off The CW’s fall 2016 slate, so too do we know when to expect its Supergirl debut, Legends of Tomorrow, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and all the rest.
Soon to count itself at twelve seasons, Supernatural has been through plenty of turnover across the years, with no signs of stopping. Showrunners from Eric Kripke to Sera Gamble have led to Jeremy Carver, who himself is now confirmed to leave the longrunning CW drama for its upcoming Frequency reboot.
