‘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. Is there actually meant to be a season 11? or is someone just messing with us?!

  2. The show is nothing with out DEAN in it he
    Makes the show enjoyable with his humor
    But without both Winchesters it doesn’t
    Flow together with its humor against brothers
    And family love for one another and how they
    Stick together through the rough times
    When they need each other the most

  3. So Dean is not going to be in it well why ?Sam needs Dean Castile also needs him to it just going to be difficult with out him in the show he is going to be missed it will be weird

    • I agree it wont be the same without him

  4. We all love dean and lord knows how many times we have cried over the loss of sammy just because you could feel deans pain or the other way around. Every time a main character has died so far they have come back and you could see the love shared between them. If dean pernamently dies there is no longer a connection that strong in the show then ratings will definatly go down.

  5. Im sick of people who just want the show to end. If you dont like it that much then stop watching but dont ruin it for the rest of us who are real fans.

  6. I think the show will loose alot of it’s audience if Dean will not be in season 11,or season 10 even.To me I like the Dean character personally more between the two Winchesters.He ties the whole show together,if it’s only Sam and Castiel,there won’t be that whole brother love,and with Castiel there won’t be that friendship.Personally I will keep watching Supernatural till season 10.

  7. Scratch that,I’ll watch it till season 20!

  8. When I tuned in to Supernatural and the Winchester brothers , it was by mistake. It was one of the best mistakes I have ever made. I fell in love with those boys. I am a 57 year old woman and this series just has me hooked. It’s the best since Buffy got me hooked back then. I hope it continues beyond 10. 11 etc. Please Ackles don’t leave the show. When something is hot, keep the flame going. You may think the gras is greener but choose wisely. Listen to your fans.

    • Dear Helen, I suspect there are many of us Supernatural fans who are over 50 and former Buffy fans. I’ve been watching Supernatural from the very first episode and watch all the reruns as well. But don’t say it too loud. I think the sponsors prefer a different demographics! ;)

  9. I love it, keep up the good work.

  10. I just LOVE the show.. It is full of excitement !! From supernatural, to frightening, bloody, drama, love interest and yet humor!! I don’t like horror movies at all, but this is completely different than any other show!! These writers are “FANTASTIC” !!!! BUT Jensen & Jared make the show so “LOVABLE” !!! I have the show on right now (a rerun from 2007 – “Tall Tales”) and those two crack me up. Their humor is so special!! They must have the best time ever, while they are at work. I wish them both the “BEST”, with whatever Is in their future. But, I am looking for the new season, and many more, if possible!!

  11. I personally favor Sam over Dean (although I do love Dean too) but let’s face it–what draws the vast majority of viewers to this show is its depiction of those strong bonds between brothers. Regardless of whether we are Sam fans or Dean fans, the whole brother thing is what caught our interest in the beginning and is what has kept us intrigued all these years. If Ackles goes, so goes the heart of the show–and by “heart of the show”, I mean the brotherly bond thing. It would be the exact same if Padalecki left instead of Ackles.

    Once there are no brothers, there is no show . . .

  12. Men I can’t wait for season 10. Men dean is my main character. He better come back.

  13. dean cant leave please

  14. Please do not kill off dean permanently … I’ve been watching them from day one and never missed an episode.. I have the whole DVD collection… And what makes the show amazing is having both brothers in it…they compliment each other perfect and unless there both jn it . The show will not be the same… Both are just as valuable.. So if anyone thag reads this has any pull with the show, KEEP DEAN ALIVE! And Jensen, keep your fans happy cause remember this…. Without ur loving fans , this would have neve have happened for you guys in the first place… forest for the trees boys…. Forest for the trees .. Ciao ciao

  15. it is just the best… dean will be back with a bang as always… it should continue… the true fans are eagerly waiting for the 10th season to start… having watched every episode… will watch every future season… the show is d best… never want it to end…

  16. i will stop watching the show if den is gone.why do the the networks do that like two and a half men

  17. Its a shame when this happens, but here in the UK sky living have dropped Supernatural
    so now i am going to have to watch it online. I have watched this series since it began and i’m not ready to give it up!

  18. Supernatural must continue, many people watch it and will be disappointed if it is ended, i think it would be interesting to see a season with Misha and Jared if Jensen were to leave the cast, but it would also be very disappointing to see him go.

  19. I love supernaturals, hell I own every season that has come out on dvd and the show just wont be the same without Ackles. If he leaves I would rather see the Dean person die rather then them change the person, thow the show just wont be the same without dean. no offence to Jeremy hes a good actor, its just that when ever a show changes to a different actor the show losses some of its flare. It is my hope that Ackles will stay on the show as Dean because I just dont think anyone could play Dean as good as Ackles could!!! So everyone join me in saying. LUV ACKLES AS DEAN, ACKLES PLEASE STAY!!!!

  20. Everyone please join me in saying

    LUV ACKLES AS DEAN, ACKLES PLEASE STAY!!!

    Ackles needs to know that his fans are rooting for him to stay on the show.

  21. WE NEED DEAN WE NEED DEAN WE NEED DEAN.
    I WILL GO ON A HUNGER STRIKE IF I HAVE TO.

  22. As much as I love this show, 10 years is enough. At one point SPN will end. Deal with it. Then get on with your lives.

    And if you are a true fan of Jensen Ackles as you claim you are, why would you want to deprive him of moving on to other, bigger roles? Both Warners and DC are interested in him. I love Dean but he’s had a good run. You guys are being incredibly selfish and naive.

  23. Yes, yes, the boys will be back. I’m in my 50′s and I love the Winchesters.

  24. I want god in the next season they have to put god

  25. keep coming… no ending…

  26. Love Love Love this show me and my husband watch it all the time Dean is my favorite he is the big brother so he has more going for him Sammy is the baby they need to have Dean come back and be a butt-kicking good guy again love Jensen Ackles Jared Padalecki without them Supernatural will be NOTHING

  27. Season 11? Really guys?! Give it up. Ten is such a good strong number, and the show has been running for too long anyway. Go with the spin off but leave the Winchesters and their story alone!

    • i agree ten is a good number to finish on its been a fantastic series and i love it which is why i want it to end while its still on top there have been so many series in the past that have gone on and on and it just ruins them hope the writers have something special for us with season ten but really think this is were it should end plus jensen and jared need to move on with there career s now we all love them and i wish them the very best for the future what ever they decide .

  28. Show is starting to suck just end it already its getting ridiculous. end it soon please.

  29. If dean is to be permanently dead then The show is ruin and i wount watch it anymore i will quit and i know that alot of people will also quite watching because the Brothers are what made the show special
