The CW cancelled its plans for Wayward Sisters, a potential spin-off to the Supernatural TV show that had a backdoor pilot last year and instead, opted to go with reboots of Charmed and Roswell. Still, the little show that could (and has since 2005) keeps ticking along, and finished season 13 as a top-three demo ratings earner for the network. Now that it’s back for a 14th season (albeit a shorter one), will the creative team’s thoughts turn to wrapping it up and working toward a conclusion, or will the Winchester brothers remain on the road, saving people and hunting things? Will Supernatural be cancelled or renewed for season 15? Stay tuned. **Status update below.
A paranormal horror drama, season 14 of Supernatural stars Jared Padaldecki as Sam Winchester, and Jensen Ackles as both Dean Winchester and the latest incarnation of the archangel Michael. The CW cast also includes Misha Collins as Castiel and Alexander Calvert as Jack. This year, guest stars include Jim Beaver, Kim Rhodes, Ruth Connell, Briana Buckmaster, Kathryn Newton, Katherine Ramdeen, Clark Blacko, Yadira Guevara-Prip, Samantha Smith, Amanda Tapping, Danneel Ackles, and Felicia Day.
Supernatural season 14 kicks off with Sam recruiting everyone to help him track down Dean, and since he’s possessed by Michael, he could be anywhere. Meanwhile, Castiel meets with an unreliable source and finds himself in trouble, and Jack is trying to cope with being human, since his grace was drained last season.
