Supernatural Gets Renewed – Will Season 13 Be Unlucky For the Boys?

On January 8, EW announced that the CW’s Supernatural will be renewed for a 2017-2018 season. As the longest running fantasy show still going, this will be the show’s 13th year on the air. The announcement came during the Television Critics Association Press Tour by network president Mark Pedowitz. How do these guys keep doing it? 

According to the Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Mark Sheppard and Misha Collins (if you don’t know who they are, you probably have no business reading an article about Supernatural), they’re all thrilled with the news of a 13th season, despite rumors to the contrary. The show’s fate rested in limbo after Ackles and his wife, Danneel Harris, welcomed twin Zeppelin (a boy) and Arrow (a girl) this past December and Padalecki and his wife, Genevieve, have a baby girl due in March. Many thought season 12 would be the show’s farewell to fans due to J² being so busy. But au contraire! Here’s what they had to say about this newest announcement…

But will this be an unlucky season for the Winchester brothers and their entourage? Over the years, they’ve battled monsters, ghosts, the apocalypse, demons, angels and even God’s sister. Where else can they possibly go from here?

If you go by the show’s popularity, it would seem as though Dean, Sam, Castiel and Crowley could go on having crazy and hilarious adventures indefinitely and fans would be just thrilled with that. Maybe now that they’ve run the gamut between Rhode Island, California, Maine and Texas, the future could possibly hold some trips oversees to fight a battle or two. Hey, they’ve got to go somewhere. Let’s just hope it isn’t downhill or over a shark.

Finish up season 12 when Supernatural returns from its mid-season finale on January 26th.
