Is it really true? Is the WB ‘Supernatural’ returning with the Winchester brothers once again for a new season?
Originally airing on the WB network, ‘Supernatural’ is an American TV series about the Winchester brothers – Sam and Dean, who hunt down monsters, demons, and other evil supernatural forces. This was one of the many shows affected by the coronavirus pandemic. It was supposed to conclude in the spring of 2020. Generally, each season consisted of 20 episodes but season 15 abruptly ended with only 13 episodes, as the government had put a halt on show business. Nonetheless, coronavirus has proved to be a blessing in disguise for the future of ‘Supernatural’.
Though all the 20 episodes of season 15 are now available to watch on various platforms, there have been talks around the rebooting of the show for a bonus season. What might it be like? Let’s find out!
- The Winchester brothers are returning for ‘Supernatural’ bonus season
- Season 16 to come back with a ‘Legacies’ crossover?
- When will season 16 go on air?
The Winchester brothers are returning for the WB ‘Supernatural’ bonus season
Due to the coronavirus pandemic shutdown, the series had to go on a hiatus. And while the abrupt ending of season 15 was surely disappointing, the delay did have a brighter side.
Often, the episode scripts are finished in a single week, but due to the shutdown, the writers and producers got multiple months to tweak and improve the script for the remaining 7 episodes.
They even got the time to incorporate fans’ feedback which is almost impossible in the fast-paced schedule of TV seasons.
Not only did they do justice with the last 7 episodes of season 15, the network and showrunners have also planned to bring the Winchester brothers back with a bonus season of the WB ‘Supernatural’.
Seems like the era of Sam and Dean won’t end so quickly! This time gap might also have made possible the most anticipated crossover with ‘Legacies’. Read on to know more!
Season 16 to come back with a ‘Legacies’ crossover?
Julie Plec, the ‘Legacies’ producer, was having two minds about the crossover of ‘Supernatural’ and her show. She feared that the crossover would make her show ‘Legacies’ darker.
But, the shutdown gave her enough time to think of a better plot for the crossover. Apparently, Julie has said yes to the dream crossover. And if there is even a bit of truth in these rumours, then the future is bright for the series fans.
Here is a fan tweet hoping for a crossover:
Will the fans of both the shows finally have the chance to watch and enjoy the crossover? For now, nothing is certain but who knows? Maybe the Winchester brothers stop by ‘Legacies’ after the WB ‘Supernatural’ is done with!
When will season 16 go on air?
For now, the creators of ‘Supernatural’ have kept mum on season 16. No date has been officially announced by the network about the new season. Also, there is no official news from Julie Plec and the team of ‘Legacies’ regarding the crossover.
But it is expected that the crossover will be served as a package in ‘Supernatural’ Season 16. We’ll keep you updated with the latest information on this. Until then, you can enjoy a rerun of the whole series on Amazon Prime.
