The end is near for Supernatural. We’ve known this for a while, but this time it’s for real. The CW announced the return date for the Winchesters’ swan song coming Thursdays in October. With seven episodes left, that means we will see the end of Supernatural before Thanksgiving.

The coronavirus impacted a lot of shows in North America. Supernatural had two more episodes to film, along with a lot of special effects to add to the remaining episodes before production was shut down in March. According to Deadline, production on those final two episodes is set to resume on Tuesday, August 18, but that remains fluid. Whatever that means. 

This won’t be the last we see of Sam, a.k.a. Jared Padalecki, and Dean, aka Jensen Ackles. Padalecki will star in the CW drama/reboot of Walker Texas Ranger. And, announced today, Ackles joins the cast of The Boys for season three. It would be so cool to see them cross over on their new shows, but I doubt that would happen.

Supernatural ended on a pretty good note last spring. Billie (Lisa Berry), a.k.a. Death, brought Jack (Alexander Calvert) back to life to battle it out with his grandfather, God, a.k.a. Chuck (Rob Benedict). There’s some kind of loophole that Chuck created so he wouldn’t abuse his power… which he did. Jack didn’t have a soul when he returned, but with some help from Castiel (Misha Collins), a demon and a couple of doppelgängers, he got it back. So what does this mean for the Winchesters? What does it mean for God? We’ll just have to wait to find out how it all ends.

Supernatural, the final episodes, return on Thursday, October 8 on The CW. The series finale will air after an hour-long finale special, Supernatural: The Long Road Home, on Thursday, November 19.
