Supernatural may have an open pass to the CW’s renewal Inn, but the series end date might not be too far away, according to EP Bob Singer and stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki.
Speaking to EW, Ackles suggests the show could end after 14 seasons and 300 episodes in 2019:
“In a marathon, I keep my sights on that next mile, wherever that might be. And 300’s a good number to work for.
With Supernatural heading into Season 12, Singer supports the notion that the series could end after Season 14:
“We talked about wanting to be able to know when our end was, and if it was to be, let’s say, 300 episodes, we could tell a 13-episode story. I think it would be bad for this show to just ride off in the sunset without a finale. I think we’ve earned that. I don’t know what that finale is, but we’d certainly like to do one.”
Padalecki openly admits that “it might be time to say bye” as SPN nears its endgame:
“If we don’t make it to 300, I think Ackles and I will both be truly bummed. When we get to 300, I think Ackles and I will think it might be time to say bye. There’s a chance that changes, but we certainly do not take it for granted that we’re going to make it to 300.”
With a rough end date now set, will Supernatural make it to its 14th and potentially last season, or will the cancellation reaper scupper those plans? Additionally, might the series still live beyond Season 14 or spinoff? Stay tuned…
