supernatural season 8 Supernatural Renewed for Season 9   Will It Reach Season 10?

Sam and Dean’s adventures will continue for (at least) one more year, as CW announced that it has given an early renewal for Supernatural season 9. Could showrunner Jeremy Carver’s plan to reach season 10 actually happen?

The news, announced via press release from CW, also came with news of Arrow season 2 and a new season of The Vampire Dairies, helping to the secure the network’s top ratings performers for one more year. Nothing was mentioned in regards to whether or not Nikita will continue on Fridays in season 4.

Once riddled with the programming “death slot” next to Nikita, Supernatural was rescued from Friday nights to be paired with new series Arrow, the network’s (now) most watched show, which led to a ratings increase of 15% from season 8 to season 9. But there’s more to Supernatural’s renewal than just improved ratings.

Through season 7 and 8, Supernatural went through so-called “growing pains,” as many aging series do. After a tiring battle against the Leviathans, the death (and afterlife) of a fan-favorite character, and a surprise trip to Purgatory, fans of Supernatural were wondering if their favorite series had finally become too broken to fix. And then, Jeremy Carver returned to the show for season 8 – this time as showrunner.

Carver, who is considered one of the best writers Supernatural ever had, returned to the series with the goal of reaching season 10 – a goal, he said, that would include returning the show to its origins. And although it took until the second of half of season 8, Supernatural has, largely, returned to its roots, replacing unnecessarily complicated storylines with a coherent and thoroughly entertaining story-arc, the “Man of Letters.”

Now that Supernatural season 9 has been confirmed – something that the actors already agreed to last year, along with season 10 – fans will get to see more of Carver’s story begin to reveal itself, allowing viewers to see where, if renewed, the show could be heading in its (likely final) tenth season. However, if Carver’s plan of bringing Supernatural backs to its roots continue to be as successful, don’t be surprised if Sam and Dean continue to battle it out until season 11.

  1. Oh my GOSH!!! This series was apparently being re-run by TNT and out of boredom with “Summer TV” one day, I was channel surfing and came across this show. It quite literally hooked me from the 5 minutes and I’ve been recording each and every show offered, ever since! It would be AWE-to-the-SOME if this is still on!!! I am a newly devoted FAN! Great story lines and just superb acting!!!! l

    • LOL. same thing here. When TNT started runnig the show after Charmed I started watching and have been a devoted fan ever since. I hope the Winchester dont go the way of that show (charmed) however. After the source was killed and cole left the show it was all down hill. I t felt like they were just doing it to do it. The writing went down the crapper. I must admit Supernatural seemed to be heading in t hat directin as well. Wasnt a big fan of the leviathan arc. And then the Men of letters came, and it felt….right. Sam and Dean are our modern day Hardy Boys. And with Carver back at the helm. I think things are looking up again. :)

    • Season 9 premier Tues Oct 8th on the CW

  2. One of my favorite shows.. 10 season.. 100 seasons.. either way .. i’ve been on the ride since the very beginning and I cant see myself EVER being ready to say goodbye…

  3. AGREED about everthing you posted!!!!! Started watching when at home sick one day just before summer. Been hooked on Castiel and them fabulous Winchester Brothers ever since.

  4. I’ve been watching this show since the very beginning. Amazing show never wanna see it end. Love how they throw lil side shows on not just stick w the main mission. It’s funny old school music. Love Sam and dean. Great characters played by amazing actors. Tere are downfalls though but Idc still love the show

  5. I love this show. These boys are like family now. I caught a few shows a few years ago but never watched it regularly. I recently got caught up to Season 8 thanks to Netflix. I was hooked from the Pilot. Season 8 opener was very good but was a little flat for me. I think they may be starting to run out of steam. **Please start preparing a fantastic SERIES FINALE *** Don’t disappoint your fans. If you have enough material to run through 10 seasons, end it there. Go out with a Bang!!!! (Note – Get some marketing like AMC had for Breaking Bad.)

  6. if you guys do not continue with the seasons of supernatural it would be the biggest mistake in Hollywood history this show is awesome the characters are completely awesome and nonreplaceable..b******* demon hunters don’t take that off that’s the only entertainment we have to look forward to.it’s a great show and one of the best on TV in mine and my sons opinion and I’m sure many many more peoples

  7. I too found Supernatural because my daughter had been watching and turned me on to it. We both started watching somewhere near the end of Season 3 with the reruns on TNT. Now we are on Season 7. I really love the show having been a graduate of the Charmed series. I like the whole concept of good fighting evil. It has great acting and characters, with Dean and Sam, the best of course and Bobby, Castiel, and others. I love the dialog in this series, it’s cool and funny and clever and the writing just terrific! I truly hope that it gets renewed for a 10th season for to be honest I really don’t watch very much t.v. as I find most of it boring. This is the first drama series I’ve watched since Charmed and the only one right now. So PLEASE producers RENEW the show for Season 10!

  8. I discovered Supernatural on TNT and have watched twice up to the episode 179 that aired 04/24/13. I see the new season 9 has already aired. When or if is season 10 and will you run re- runs of season 9

  9. Best show literally could not stop watching episode after episode on netflix. Season 8 ended crazy and I must know what is going to happen. Truly one of my favorite series I ever watched
