Supernatural will soon be reaching the season 10 goal set by showrunner Jeremy Carver, but now it looks as if the series could surpass even that. While at the Television Critics Association press tour this week, CW President Mark Pedowitz revealed that the show’s future is up to the people who make the show and the fans who watch it.

Here’s what Pedowitz had to say about the possibility of Supernatural season 10, 11 and beyond:

“As a fan of the show, who’s seen every episode, as long as I’m here and those numbers hold, God bless them. They can go as long as they want.”

Pedowitz has been a longtime fan of the Winchesters – and fans know it – so it’s no surprise to hear that, as long as the ratings hold, Supernatural will continue to receive season orders network. Though even if the ratings should fall, it’s highly likely that the show will still be able to reach season 10; Pedowitz will just have to flex his power as president more. Anything beyond season 10 would likely be out of his control, however, as it would be dangerous for him if ratings then worsened, as there are many people who would like to become the president of a network.

Of course, if the ratings do hold, there are still (at least) two people who have something to say about it: Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles. Both of the Winchesters have already said that they’re signed on for season 9 and 10 and, as long as the network orders them, they’re ready to continue the journey. When it comes to season 11 and beyond, things begin to get a bit complicated – especially with Ackles.

Ackles is rumored to have given up the role of Hawkeye in The Avengers, and Marvel Studios continues to remind him of its interest in bringing him in to its ever-growing Cinematic Universe. On top of that, Ackles’ current relationship with Warner Bros. (through Warner Bros. television) is likely to have DC interested as well, as they know exactly how strong – not to mention valuable – he his as an actor.

Ten years is old for a television series, and both actors watched as Tom Welling made the transition from Smallville, so it’s likely that, when it comes to the Supernatural beyond season 10, we’ll see both actors make a decision that’s best for them and their future, even if it means one staying and one going. After all, Carver has said before that it’s his job to make sure the series can continue on.

Perhaps a Sam and Castiel (Misha Collins) series isn’t what you want from Supernatural, but this week’s mid-season premiere proved that the cast is more than strong enough to pick up the weight that Dean typically carries. Still, there’s always the Supernatural spin-off coming up, and that could always be used to help buffer the loss of Ackles – if the show’s still around, that is.

Let’s just keep it at this: Supernatural – or something based on Supernatural – will be on the CW for quite some time – as long as the ratings hold, of course.

Of course.


Supernatural airs Tuesdays @9pm on CW.

  1. Little late coming in on all of the commentary but… I honestly would hate to see the show go. Makes my stomach hurt at the thought! I adore both Jared and Jensen (because gosh I love their characters) as well as Misha, Mark, etc. They’re all wonderful human beings all around and if I could vote or make a wish, the show would go on without going downhill forever.

    But I get what a lot of you are saying: let the show end while it’s on top. Unlike many other series nowadays. I would love to see any of these actors in other big screen or TV pictures–hopefully working together, of course. But then I also am fearful of what some of the others are saying up here: that some of these actors may never get picked up again and we won’t see their faces on any other screen. Ever.

    I apologize for being so wishy-washy….I came in late to this fandom but I adore and obsess over it with all my heart! All of the characters–ahem, Dean!–are near and dear to me. All of the actors and actresses act seamlessly, flawlessly, so believably it’s crazy! So much talent in one show! At least give us another year or so of great storyline, Supernatural peeps. Best TV show on air that’s been on there in ages!

  2. I’m addicted to Supernatural. Sam and Dean have a real brother relationship going on and I am partial to the monster and vampire stories. Please tell me the actors’ name who played John Winchester and Bobby Singer both very much missed. Thank you for another season and many more. Vicky Adams
