‘Supernatural’ Season 10, 11 (& More) Will Happen if Ratings Hold

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

    • I agree i dont want it to end , This is the best show i like to watch , Dean & Sam are Terrific , Yes i also miss John & Bobby , Wouuld be great if they could fix it where they would , But these to Dean & Sam are super no one could ever fill there shoes , It wouldnt be the same , I say lets keep it going and Sam & Dean keep up the great work , Youre Super , 1# Fan

  3. dont ever stop supernatural take it to 20 to 30 seasons then also no one will stop watching it this show is great

    • I am behind u on this , The show is great , When it comes Tuesday i am ready to watch

  4. I love this show I have watch all the season over and over plez plez don’t stop take it to season 30 lol plez let us know when will season 10 be aired

    • season 10 after mid season finale will be aired jan 20 i belive

  5. jenson should stay on supernatural. i really couldnt picture him as a superhero on marvels or dc. he is a hero in supernatural yes but the way he carries himself is awsome. hes definetly the whole show. im not saying that jared or misha isnt good actors they are really good actors. it like having a baby if its just the women its impossible but if her partner is thier then boom it works…..

    • I think so also , They are just like real brothers and that makes it that much better , They could never find anyone to replace them , With out them it wouldnt be Supernatural ,

  6. Man, oh man I don’t ever want this show to stop because I just got finished and I want to see what happens to Dean and Sam with the whole demon situation plus I really really do like this show and I would like to see it go to season 50 and so on and still be able to watch it when I’m on my death bed or something or at least until I’m like 60.
    I don’t want my favorite show of all time to end not like this anyway and I would really be able to picture Jensen Ackles being Hawkeye or a marvel or dc because he is a hero to me and besides he only needs to keep doing what he’s doing now and keep being a hero to his fans and not anyone else.

    • I so Agree With This

    Keep Supernatural Going I Love This Show Its On The Top Of My List I’d Be DevIstated IF It Ended And Do Not Take Dean Out Of It It’ll Ruin It!

  8. Supernatural is by far the best show I have ever seen in my entire life. I started watching it from when it first aired and not once have I been disappointed. What I say may be a little obsured but I wish Supernatural could go on forever. I have soooo much of their merchandise (even cardboard cut outs) and I do not wish to see them leave. So, Mr. Padeleki or Mr. Ackles , if you are reading this then I hope you guys know you are doing amazing jobs. KEEP IT UP !!!!!!

  9. I have never got to see this show because we don’t get the station CW on our Dish network. I have been watching the reruns on TNT. I absolutely love this show. Working all day and the shows come on in the morning I never got to see it from the beginning until I finally learned how to record on the set. I have recorded ever show and finally got to see from the beginning. Fantastic series. It is serious, funny at times and realistic and very enjoyable. Please stay on a little longer. I really think you have the fan base for this series. Most shows that are fantastic always want to end to soon. Sam and Dean are believable as brothers. Fantastic script writing. Cudos to the whole cast!

  10. I started not too long ago , but i finish off a whole season in about two days. Watching the show ’till 6am . It is probably the best show that has ever been put on the internet / TV. I never get bored of it , the characters are great , the Sam-Dean relationship feels like they would really be brothers. I would be utterly pissed if te show was shut down. My wishes – make it go a long road , may season 10 be just the beginning.

  11. I love Supernatural , i want that SPN never end

  12. i’m a huge fan of supernatural i hope it never ends!

    i just watched all the seasons on netflix and last episode of season 9 was left hanging with dean with black demon eyes ‘ dont let it end there plz

  13. I love this show. Even though i am busy when it airs I always on demand it. Great show. Bring on many more seasons!

  14. Do 15

  15. I’m a huge fan, of the show and the brothers. But I wish they just finish it while it still on top.
    Because in the end, the show is all about the bond of the brothers right?
    And if Dean’s gone and the show still going on, I can’t bear to watch.
    Also Jensen should just take that hawkeye role.
    Because I wish to see both of them growing, you know.
    Be on something new, both tv and cinema.
    That’s what actors should do I think, they should take chances and challenges.

  16. I pray Jensen will never leave Supernatural, Sam and Dean are supernatural together, not just one or the other. I think the show would fail if Jensen were to leave. I love Jared but Sam without Dean is like night without day. I pray it lasts as long as possible, for the last nine years, I have not missed an episode, and look forward to it every week. It’s my favorite show ever, and for me, there will never be one that I love more. I know it will end sooner or later, but I would like that be much later please. I love them not just because they are great actors, funny, exciting, and more than great to look at, but because they are so down to earth, good people, great husbands, fathers and just plain wonderful men.
