‘Supernatural's’ final season set to end in late 2020

The long-running series Supernatural starring Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki was in production on the final episodes of season 15, its final season, when production was shut down due to the spread of the coronavirus. The show will return with proper series finale in the fourth quarter of 2020. The show has five episodes already shot and waiting on post-production and will resume production on the final episodes when the studio and producers decide it's safe to return to work. On announcing the new schedule, Pedowitz said everyone involved with the show is committed to making the final two episodes of the series. The hope is production will begin in late summer and early fall. "[We] want to end 15 years the right way, so it is important that these two episodes that they are shooting be done the way they hoped to do," he said. Supernatural is the anchor of what is the start of the fall TV season. Instead of beginning in the fall, The CW is holding the premiere of its new and returning shows until January 2021.
