What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the The CW television network, Supernatural follows Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles). Since saving people and hunting things are their family business, the Winchester brothers stand between humanity and all the scary stuff from the underworld. Last season, the boys found themselves battling an apocalyptic force: the Darkness. Now, rallying help from their human and supernatural allies, Sam and Dean are going toe-to-toe with the most destructive enemy they’ve ever seen. Misha Collins and Mark Sheppard return as Castiel and Crowley, respectively. Guests this season include Samantha Smith, Elizabeth Blackmore, Ruth Connell, Kim Rhodes, Briana Buckmaster, Kathryn Newton, Katherine Ramdeen, Rick Springfield, Kadeem Hardison, Kara Royster, Adam Rose, Adam Fergus, Alicia Witt, and David Haydn-Jones
Season 12 Ratings
The 12th season of Supernatural averaged a 0.60 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.68 million viewers. Compared to season 11, that’s down by 14% in the demo and down by 6% in terms of total viewers. Learn how Supernatural stacks up against the other CW TV shows.
Supernatural, The CW’s longest running show, is still one of its top performers. Renewing it for a 13th season was a no-brainer for the littlest-network-that-could. The show aired its 250th episode on January 26th. Previously, Ackles and Padalecki, as well as co-showrunner Robert Singer, all said they would like to make it to the 300th episode. That goal would occur 13 episodes into season 14. In addition, CW boss Mark Pedowitz is a fan of the show. He has indicated that as long as it keeps getting good ratings and the stars want to continue, he’s happy with it. Unfortunately, that means there’s nothing here for me to chew on — yet.
