Whether from Heaven, Hell, or hiatus, the Winchester brothers always find their way back, and this time is no exception. As expected, The CW has renewed its long-lived, successful Supernatural TV show for a 14th season. The boys will return to more dive bars and fleabag motels, carrying on their family business of saving people and hunting things.
A CW horror drama, Supernatural stars Jared Padaldecki and Jensen Ackles as hunters Sam and Dean Winchester. The cast also includes Misha Collins, Mark Pellegrino, and Alexander Calvert. In season 13, they’ve been alternating between raising and tracking Jack (Calvert) — a powerful Nephilim — and trying to rescue their mother, Mary (Samantha Smith), from the void. Guest stars include Kim Rhodes, Briana Buckmaster, Kathryn Newton, Katherine Ramdeen, Clark Backo, and Yadira Guevara-Prip, who featured in the backdoor pilot to the Supernatural TV series spin-off, Wayward Sisters (and there’s no news on a pickup for that, yet).
