“Supernatural” will return for its final seven episodes starting in October.
In announcing its fall premiere dates for the 2020-2021 broadcast television season on Monday, The CW revealed that the first of the long-running show’s final episodes will debut on Oct. 8 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The series finale will then air on Nov. 19 at 9 p.m. after a retrospective special titled “Supernatural: The Long Road Home.”
“Supernatural” has been a cornerstone of the network for 15 seasons, beginning when the network was still known as The WB. The final season was originally intended to wrap up back in the spring, but the COVID-19 pandemic forced the series to suspend production before the final episodes were completed.
The show is supposed to restart filming in Vancouver Tuesday on its final episodes, and a source close to Warner Bros. confirms that plan. Until recently, U.S. studios and British Columbia unions were deadlocked on an agreement over safety protocols — about testing in particular — but that standoff has been resolved. But a source close to the CW says nothing is sure until cameras start rolling.
The CW also announced the broadcast premiere of the DC Universe series “Swamp Thing” will take place on Oct. 6 at 8 p.m. with a special 90-minute premiere. The Patrick Dempsey-led international series “Devils” will debut on Oct. 7 at 8 p.m.
The new series “World’s Funniest Animals” makes its debut with back-to-back episodes on Sept. 18 at 9 and 9:30 p.m. following “Masters of Illusion.” The Season 2 premiere of the one-hour fantasy series “Pandora” will air Oct. 4 at 8 p.m.
