Empire and Supernatural are both airing their final seasons on their respective networks, but production has halted for both shows with episodes left to film. This could cause a problem for both shows. The shows do not have another season to come back to and wrap things up.
Deadline revealed the following:
“The final stretch of episodes for both shows are already airing, so there is no option to postpone the final seasons. There is no possibility to add the episodes to next season because there is no next season. Even if the networks stagger existing episodes to wait for the finales to be made, they are expected to run out of originals before it would be safe to return to production on the last installments.”
The CW and FOX both have options. The networks could bring the shows back and close them out with television movie events. Another option would be for the series to return to production to film the episodes later this summer for airing over the summer.
Right now, it is not clear what will happen. When Supernatural halted production, the possibility that things could impact Jared Padalecki’s next project, Walker, is real.

This is what people are worried about? It’s just entertainment. Worry about your grandparents instead.
These are beloved characters that have been with people for fifteen years. Let’s worry about grandma, grandpa, and the boys.
Both my grandparents and parents have left the planet. I’d sure like to see a good ending to Supernatural, so well written. So UN-coplike show
“Just entertainment”? Series finales are PART of that entertainment. “Empire” and “Supernatural” used to be the flagship shows for their respective networks, and FOX and CW are hoping to avoid a “Girlfriends”-like scenario (in which – God forbid – their finale episodes don’t get filmed at all). The people who make comments like, “It’s just a TV show!”, or something similar, are only going to add fuel to the fire and make people angry. If this year’s Tokyo Olympics really do get postponed, there should be a brief “summer season” in which any broadcast-TV shows’ unproduced season finales can be… Read more »
