If The CW boss is to be believed, the network already wants to make season 13 and more — as long as the Supernatural stars want to make the show. But, what if the ratings continue to fall? Is it inevitable that the series will be cancelled or will it just keep going and going? Stay tuned.
On Supernatural, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles), continue their fight against scary stuff from the underworld. Last season, the Winchester brothers 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. Actors Misha Collins and Mark A. Sheppard return. Guests this season are expected to include Samantha Smith, Elizabeth Blackmore, Ruth Connell, Kim Rhodes, Briana Buckmaster, Kathryn Newton, Katherine Ramdeen, Rick Springfield, Kadeem Hardison, Kara Royster, and Adam Rose.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

For comparisons: The 11th season of Supernatural averaged a 0.70 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.78 million total viewers (Live+SD).
Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
What do you think? Do you like the Supernatural TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a 13th season?
1/8 update: The CW has renewed Supernatural for season 13. Details here.
The story is dying, an its amazing that in 13 years there has not ever been a mention of Jesus. How can you have a Holy War without Jesus? Love the show, but “writers” privilege went way out the door a long time ago. Good luck with the ending.
I really love this show and I will LOVE IT EVEN MORE IF THE SEASONS KEPT GOING!!!!!!!
Please keep this show going till Sam and Dean get old !!!! This my favorite show ever I even got my kids into it !
Please please please continue this show!!!! This is my favorite show ! It should keep going till they are old!!
I am in my early 60’s and love watching supernatural. I have been along for the ride since day one. Can’t wait to see what will happen next season!
are male fans of the show a minority when it comes to this show xD
I am 53 years old and I’ve watched Supernatual since the beginning! Every summer when I am off, I watch the reruns on TNT. I guess you can say, I am a fan!!! When Jared and Jensen get tired, I guess we won’t have choice. Thank you guys for your hard work and everyone who makes this show possible!
keep it going until the end of time! They haven’t really touched a lot of old mythology! lets meet the Seelie! The Sluagh! That’s some scary creatures right there!
I finished watching SN at the 7th season when it got completely weird and pointless, characters dying means nothing, super powered beings become very easy to kill in a season or two, and it kept on going and going. Frankly, I’m so fed up with it, so I just come and see if this is finally the last season every begging of summer or so. Because I want to know how it all ends (and my dark heart wants Sam and Dean to finally die once and for all)
I love this show even got my grandkids watching. We all enjoy the show please keep this show going.
I just finished Season 12 on Netflix. I had heard that it was cancelled so I thought this was a planned final season. At first I thought they were actually going to get rid of all the ‘monsters’ like the British Men of Letters wanted and that the boys could have a life and move on. I always assumed they’d find a way to bring Bobby back to end the series so I really thought this was the last episode. It seemed great to let them see that the world is really a better place, thanks to them as a… Read more »
season 12, was slow, lets hope season 13 is better, lets put the devil back in his cage, with some good action, & imagination, dont let SUPERNATURAL end lame, like the show, GRIMM.!!

The Supernatural is what’s about reality in many forms. I love Sam and Dean,I watch the series anytimt I get a chance.It must go on. They must make season 13 and 14. Thank you.Your fan. Aurora Borealis.
Newbie in the SPN family. This show is awesome, but I got to say that after season 5, the story line went crazy. I haven’t finished watching all the seasons yet (currently on s7), but honestly after binging on it for about two months, there’s a part of me that is disliking it a teensy bit. The way the show kills off great characters pisses me off. I believe some characters like Jo and Ellen deserved a better ending. I’ve read spoilers of s12 and now I’m not so enthusiastic on watching that season knowing that they’re gonna do something… Read more »
I agree with the following statement “The way the show kills off great characters pisses me off.”, but I still love the show!
