‘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.

  1. Yow na tell no lie am a jamaican and I love movies its what I do and I never forget a movie or a seen from a movie and for years smallville have been number one for years but of late man supernatural is the real s*** teen wolf was making it but there not making teen wolf as supernatural as it should be. Supernatural is a tv show that has every thing and any thing its the in thing love that show I watch its week after week and I have not mist an episode and I saved most of them ill ask who ever is writing the show or producing it to keep up the good work am 22 years and I would like to keep watching for a few more years love the show its the best big up to the makers of the show my email address is lamarharrisingh@gmail.com would love to here what’s up for the show

  2. SUPERNATURAL is the best show EVER! The XFiles was pretty awesome until they canceled it, leaving fans hungering for more. Along came SUPERNATURAL! Please don’t kill off any more regulars and DON’T CANCEL THE SERIES! I want to see more Garth!

  3. PLEASE NEVER END THIS!! I’LL DIE IF YOU DO! IT’S MY WHOLE LIFE DEPENDING ON IT. DON’T YOU DARE STOP MAKING SEASONS!!

  4. i don’t know about everyone else, but if they take out Jensen Ackles, I probably would stop watching this show. don’t get me wrong, jared and misha are good, but Jensen is the best. that girl nerdy lesbian girl they had in couple episodes is good too. they might consider using her more regularly. the other sort of unappealing thing i heard about season 10 is making dean a demon. somehow that just doesn’t work for me. he is the consummate good guy. crass and rough around the edges, but he’s still “the man”. Jensen, if you are reading this, don’t quite the show!!!

  5. Hello Script-Writers good job love the show. 1-I hope there will be a flash-back episode from Dean + Sam in hell example:Dean + Sam are bickering fighting verbally about how hell changed them, Cas steps in puts them in a coma and make them walk a mile in each others shoes..we as audience will see Sam in Deans hell-Experience + Dean in Sam’s. Dean holds on for thirty years then starts cutting into others after being tortured by Alastair + Meg. Sam starts cutting into people sinds day one, but finds himself into trouble when a little girl is put in front of him. After they get out of the coma, Dean asks Sam if he tortured the girl,Sam looks in a Certain way..and there the Eps. ends!…Another eps. The Alternate reality where they were Actors..You should show the other side of that story! How Actor Sam + Dean survived in this reality..room for some hilarious situations…+ You should use Jesse The Anti-Christ-kid..example:Crowley is trying to turn him, while Jesse is growing stronger than Angels + Demons. However you go. love you for entertaining the Mind!.RESPECT!

    • “Sam starts cutting into people sinds day one, but finds himself into trouble when a little girl is put in front of him.”

      Dude.. Sam was in the cage with Lucifer he didn’t cut anyone, and he was only in there for like.. a month or so.

  6. Jensen please stay. The show wouldn’t be the same without you. I love this show and I practically obsess over it. I love me some Sammy but Dean plays a vital roll and I just can’t see it being as good without him. I’m all for Dean becoming a demon because I love to see his strength and watch him overcome, but please do not kill him off. Supernatural is the only show I can watch consecutively and never get bored. Jared and Jensen are a power couple and not in any gay way like how they are mistaken in the show (haha). Although I’d love to see Jensen be a superhero and work with Marvel or DC, I just can’t see myself being more of a fan to that than I am to Supernatural.

  7. I’m not entirely sure that my last comment went through, but just to show my seriousness I’m going to leave another one. I’ve seen every episode and love the story, so if any one has any updates or knows anything about any progress Supernatural May or May not make, feel free to email me at alyssatresatti@gmail.com -thank you! & Keep on “gankin”

  8. I think the show would improve if Dean was completely killed off.

  9. Hey guys ! Supernatural is also famous in India too .me and my brother will never stop watching it.that too we download it and see ,as it is aired too late on Indian television.but Jensen quitting it will make very hard too survive for season 11.please don’t stop ending this show and no other show can replace it.
    Lastly my favorite dialogue from the show ” son of a b****”

  10. Supernatural is awesome am 19 and from the uk and this show has been brilliant and would be a shame to end as it’s a really good show please don’t end it it’s awesome the best I say yes to 10 11 and beyond :)))

  11. This is one show I will watch over and over again these r shone sexy white men I can look at them over and over again why did the show stop is a good show my family loves it please dont end the show please

  12. A super fan of supernatural:
    if dean is no longer part of supernatural then there is real nothing worth watching.
    of curse, I adore cas but honestly, isn’t the whole point the love of those brothers and who they manage to overcome everything.
    cas cannot replace dean. I miss good old times, where sam and dean would talk in the car, help each other and all the ups and downs in there relationship. I miss dean being the big brother who tries the best of him to keep safe sam and sam always questioning everything.
    PLEASE CONTINUE SUPERNATURAL. ITS PART OF OUR LIVES. BUT IF YOU ARE GONNA CONTINUE IT DO IT RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. I hope they keep on making more seasons. I considere the show very interesting and I love the drama both brothers bring into the show. It will be very hard to see the show and one of them is not there. Im dying to see what season 10 its going to bring to the plate. Jensen please dont quite!! Take a leave if u need it but dont leave us. I really love this show and will never stop watching them. Even tho its about time one of u guys have a son or daughter it will bring a very new twist to everything. LOVE YA AND KEEP UP THE BATTLE OF THE SUPERNATURAL.

  14. So excited: SPN Season 10 Premier in 4 DAYS!!! I am so pumped, I can’t sleep! I came late to the party (discovered 2 years ago), but just love it!
    There are only 2 other FICTION TV shows that I watch, regularly: Justified and Walking Dead and I only enjoy those when the episodes aren’t “Soaped”! Used to LOVE Sons of Anarchy, but, imho, it went “Soap” and jumped the rails! Meh!
    I would dearly love for the writers to attempt to bring us back to pre Season 7 feels and allow the brothers to re-bond before they bring the show to an end. I understand that the show took hits from the schmear factory out there, over the bromance (truly manly, brotherly affection!) between the show’s co-stars, but, really guys, that’s where the wellspring of love between the brothers sprang from and shone thru! Bring it back guys and the show will go down in TV history!
    Love ‘em!

  15. supernatural is by far to good to stop keep this show

  16. Supernatural is the bomb hope the show never ends just amazing. I don’t know what I would do without this awesome show. Best show ever hands down. Suggestion for season 11 cause this show is just that good no doubt they’ll get there, I hope there is a reunion with the boys and their dad again, with the dad out of hell they can start hunting together again or at least bring back Billy ( he was a great guy/ actor ). Also some more new freaky monsters love them.

  17. My all time favorite show but honestly I hope it does end soon before it gets too strung out

    • Yep, you and me both. I love the show, but I need season 10 to be it, the boys are starting to look tired, and I’d love to see Jensen in other things, he would have been a most excellent hawkeye. Hell, je would have been the perfect human torch for the reboot.

  18. I have to have my supernatural ! Of course there’s no show without jared and Jensen so PLEASE DON’T LEAVE , WHY NOT DO BOTH? I’D LOVE O SEE HIM IN ARMOR WITH ADVENGERS omg could you imagine !? Hot damn :) go Jensen !!

  19. I have to have my supernatural I watch reruns everyday love it!! I’ve watched since day 1 an know there’s no show without jared an Jensen BUT IT WOULDN’T BE VERY NICE TO SEE JENSEN TRAM UP WITH ADVENGERS OH YES SS! !

  20. The show is amazing been watching since day 1!!! I can watch reruns daily an do most days on tnt it would be nice to Jensen teamed up with avengers tho :) love these guys keep up up Idk what I’d do without my fix of spn!

  21. Are you kidding me? Supernatural has been going WAY downhill. You honestly think it should continue “because of fans”? END IT ALREADY.

  22. They really need to remake The X files and have Sam and Dean be the FBI agents..

  23. I’d happily watch a Cas and Dean version of Supernatural, or even Cas, Dean, and Crowley. No interest in Cas and Sam. I’d rather have Cas get his own spin off centers around him and the angels who choose to remain on earth.

  24. please, PLEASE just let it end at season 10. DONT GET ME WRONG i looooove supernatural but sometimes its best to let something die before it goes on too long and turns into something you hate.

    i dont want to keep watching supernatural until it reaches a point where i look at it and go “what the hell has this show turned into?” because no matter what it is only a matter of time, it happens to every show that goes on for too long.

    end on a high note folks, end on a high note. plus i remember hearing (not sure if it was rumor or fact) that they had an ending they COULD put in place for season 10s finale if they decided to end the show there, so now is a good time to end it (if what i heard is true that is)
