The CW’s long-standing hit series, Supernatural, is airing its last episode tonight (March 23rd), before going on hiatus. The fifteenth and final season will be deviating from its originally-planned schedule after production was forced to shut down. The announcement comes as no surprise as the global fight against the coronavirus pandemic continues its plight for a healthy resolution.
Production was shut down indefinitely, despite only having a few final episodes to film. So, what does that mean for the series? Showrunner, Andrew Dabb, shed some insight on the matter, tweeting, “Due to the shutdown, this will be our last episode for a while.”
He continued on to say:
“We have filmed through episode 18, however our visual effects and sound departments have closed because of the outbreak. So, right now, the episodes can’t be finished. However, [we] have some special treats coming along the way– to help us all get through this. And yes, we, the CW, and Warner Bros fully intend to return and finish the series. It’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when.”
For fans of the series, you can catch episode thirteen, titled “Destiny’s Child,” tonight on the CW. Supernatural’s final season is slated to air twenty episodes in total. Although there’s no word on when production will resume, we should commend the studio’s decision to keep its actors, production staff, and all involved in the series as safe as possible during these trying times.
