Veteran “Supernatural,” The CW’s longest running series historically and the sixth longest scripted hour-long drama historically (behind “Law & Order,” “Gunsmoke” and “Law & Order: SVU,” “NCIS” and “Grey’s Anatomy”) will conclude in 2019-20 after 15 seasons. Debuting on former network The WB on Sept. 13, 2005, “Supernatural” focuses on brothers Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester as they follow their father’s footsteps in the “family business” — hunting down supernatural monsters.
“Supernatural” joins another veteran drama heading into season 15 that will also be concluding, “Criminal Minds” on CBS; and The CW’s “Arrow,” will will have an abbreviated 10-episode eighth — and final — season.
Padalecki, Ackles, and co-star Misha Collins (who plays the angel Castiel) announced that the series would come to an end with its forthcoming season, and thanked the fans who have watched over the years. “We wanted you to hear from us that although we’re excited about next year,” Padalecki said, “it will be the finale.”
