The CW Pulls The Plug On ‘Supernatural’ After Season 15

It is a very sad day for fans of the hit CW series “Supernatural” as the news was revealed that the series will be coming to an end after its’ 15th season. The series follows brothers Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester as they follow their father’s footsteps in the “family business” which happens to be hunting down supernatural monsters.

The news of the cancellation was heartbreaking to both the cast and fans, many who were shocked when the news broke as a Twitter posting via actor Jared Padalecki who along with his co-stars Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins shared a heartfelt video thanking fans for their unwavering support for all these years. “We wanted you to hear from us that although we’re excited about next year,” Padalecki said, “it will be the finale.”

The CW renewed “Supernatural” for its 15th season back in January. Series creator Eric Kripke originally envisioned the series would run for five seasons, only to see it last three times as long, building on the world and the characters for years.

The harrowing journey of the Winchester brothers continues as “Supernatural” is in its historic fourteenth season. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have matched wits with monsters, demons, Heaven and Hell. But in the show’s thirteenth season, the Winchesters were thrown into a terrifying alternative universe–an apocalyptic world where they were never born, all while training Jack (Alexander Calvert), the son of Lucifer (Mark Pellegrino), and trying to save their mother. The final battle with Lucifer and Archangel Michael (Christian Keyes) could alter the lives of The Winchesters forever, and creates a new threat for Sam and Dean.

In the show’s thirteen season, the Winchester brothers started with our heroes losing everything; the Angel Castiel (Misha Collins) dead by Lucifer’s hand, the birth of Lucifer’s offspring Jack and their mother that they just got now trapped to an alternate dimension. Reeling from their losses, Sam and Dean try to adjust to the new normal, with a Nephilim (Jack) now in tow. But they’re not quite prepared for the powers this half human, half angel exhibit. And, due to his feelings of guilt over Mary (Samantha Smith) lost in a different universe, Jack takes it on himself to find Mary and bring her back, knocking the Winchesters and himself across the universes.

The Winchesters ultimately fight Lucifer and get their mother back – with a surprising ally: Gabriel (Richard Speight Jr.)! With the help of Gabriel and the promise of reuniting Lucifer with his son, the Winchesters and the angels devise a plan to return to the Apocalypse world, save Mary and Jack, and prevent the evil archangel Michael from breaching the gap between universes. But Lucifer isn’t one to be trusted, but with no choice, the Winchesters have to accept one of the most powerful beings to take on their greatest enemy… potentially dooming themselves in the process.
