What is the show all about?
The show which was first premiered in 2005, is currently on its 15th season. CW’s Supernatural has Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki and Misha Collins as leads. The actors have been working together for over 15 years and have definitely gotten very close.
The series revolves around two brothers Dean and Sam Winchester, played by Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki respectively, who hunt ghosts, demons, monsters and other supernatural powers.
How did the show come about?
The idea of the show came into existence much before it was introduced to the actors and producers. According to a source, the creator of the show Erik Kripke had been developing the series for nearly ten years.
Supernaturals was originally a web series that was available for online streaming through Yahoo! Following which it was added to Apple’s itunes store in a pay per view exchange. Over time, the series was made available on the CW website eventually being picked up by TV networks like AXN.
Season 16 confirmation
Since fans and cast of the series are not yet ready to let go of the show, there are speculations that there could be a new season on its way. In conversation with CBR, Mark Pedowitz- president of The CW network, he states that he’s not yet ready to part ways with the handsome brothers. “If you can convince them to come back… I’m open” he said.
After the 15th season picked up right where season 14 ended, season 16 could be the ultimate end of the magical series.
What will season 16 be about?
With the onset of a pandemic so dangerous that it has killed over 15,300 people around the world, Coronavirus could be the next dangerous virus that the brothers team up to kill off. Season 16 could have Sam and Dean bringing their best powers to try to save people from catching the virus, and help create a cure to treat the people dying from the deadly virus.
If all works out for the actors and creators of the show, fans could be in for a fantastic treat with the duo bringing protecting the world, working their magic and making the best of the worst.
Perhaps, if that happened in the real world, that would be amazing. We definitely need a Sam and Dean IRL.
When will the new season be released?
While there is no direct confirmation about season 16 from the network or writers, the series is recently on it’s 13th episode from season 15.
Since Warner Bros. Television has shut down production due to COVID-19, there are no updates on when the next episode will be released.
For the time being, fans can hope producers and writers of the show take up the Coronavirus plot and give us more of Dean and Sam’s ghost hunting, vampire and monster killing charms on screen.
