Those Winchester boys aren’t getting a break any time soon. The CW has renewed their Supernatural TV show for a lucky season 13. The 13th season will air as part of the 2017-18 television season and will likely start airing in this fall.
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. Misha Collins and Mark A. Sheppard continue in recurring roles. 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, Adam Rose, and Adam Rose.
While it is easily the oldest TV show on The CW by far, Supernatural continues to do well for the network and is their fifth-highest rated show, ranking below the four superhero series. In the ratings, it’s currently averaging a 0.66 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.79 million viewers.
The next original episode of season 12 airs on January 26th.
The CW also renewed six other TV shows today — Arrow (season six), Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (season three), DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (season three), The Flash (season four), Jane the Virgin (season four), and Supergirl (season three).
We already know that Reign and The Vampire Diaries are ending this season. No Tomorrow and Frequency are expected to be cancelled and The Originals’ future will likely be decided once the ratings come in for the upcoming fourth season, starting in March.
