The pandemic halted the end of the iconic CW series’, but Supernatural season 16 is a possibility now!
Supernatural is perhaps the CW network’s most iconic television series of all time. The show starred Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles as Sam and Dean Winchester, brothers who fight against the eerie supernatural.

The Winchester brothers travel across the country on the hunt for supernatural creatures like vampires, ghosts and demons. Their father too was a demon-hunter, and hunting was the family business the brothers would have to take on eventually.
Through 14 seasons, Sam and Dean have done it all. They’ve traveled to alternate dimensions, prevented several apocalypses, been tortured in Hell, battled Lucifer…they’ve experienced the worst. After defeating every last powerful being in their world, they’ve taken a step further and waged a war against God.
That doesn’t necessarily sound like a happy ending is in order. The final season’s production is currently at halt due to the pandemic, so does that give Supernatural season 16 a chance? That’ll give the series time to tie up loose ends and give the Winchester brothers the happy ending they deserve.
The filming-break could lead to season 16
Who wouldn’t want Supernatural season 16 to be a reality? Unfortunately for fans, season 15 itself is a distant dream right now. What was supposed to be the final season of the saga, aired in October 2019. The highly-anticipated series finale would conclude the story of the Winchester brothers on May 18, 2020.
Fans were excited, but dreaded the end of the series which still had so many mysteries to solve. The coronavirus pandemic halted production houses all across the world, with many shows stuck in pre-production limbo. Supernatural is one of them, but for hardcore Winchester fans, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
Fans who were apprehensive about the final season will say goodbye to the series much later than planned. The break also gives the show’s producers and writers time to revise the script and maybe add an additional season? Surely, the final season has been a long time coming, but there are seven more episodes yet to be filmed.
Supernatural is on a hiatus right now, but we’re certain the show-runners are writing up a storm for season 15. The series finale not being filmed yet is a good sign for both fans and Sam and Dean’s story. Whether it leads to Supernatural season 16, we’ll have to wait and find out!
What fans can expect from the final season
It seems like Sam and Dean will face life and death one last time in the final season of Supernatural. At the 2019 Television Critics Association press tour, the cast and show-runners of the series had some spoilers for fans.
The final season picked up where they left off in season 14, as fans saw in the first few episodes. Co-show-runner Andrew Dabb shared that the season would begin “with our guys surrounded by a bunch of zombies”. He also added that the final season would include “a lot of people from the past.”
Dabb was also asked to comment on the number of times Sam and Dean have died and resurrected. To which he said, “We’re looking at this as a true ending. People can’t keep coming back over and over again. This time it’s for real.”
Fans are worried that the Winchester brothers will be killed off at the end of the series. It would be quite heart-breaking to see the two main characters die after enduring so much. But there’s a silver lining too, with Jensen Ackles hinting at a possible future Supernatural reunion!
Dean Winchester teases a future reunion
It doesn’t seem like the demon-hunting brothers’ story is ending anytime soon. Dean Winchester aka Jensen Ackles says it himself! TVLine reported that Ackles isn’t ready to step out of Dean’s boots and stop driving his 1967 Chevy Impala yet.
“It’s a long journey that I don’t think is ever going to be over,” Ackles said of the series’ 15-year run. “I think we’re just going to go away for a while. For how long, I don’t know.”
He clarified further, “I’m not ever ready to close doors or burn bridges. I think that’s foolish. Am I saying there’s something in the works? No. Am I open to having a conversation in the future? What’s the harm in that?”
There’s certainly no harm and fans are encouraging the series’ cast and creators to take as long as they like. All they want is Sam and Dean to have a happily ever after.
