Supernatural Season 15 returns Monday, March 16, 2020 at 8 p.m. EST on the CW. With just nine episodes left of the entire series, fans might be wondering when the Season 15 finale will air. The Supernatural series finale is set to air on Monday, May 18, 2020, and there will not be a Season 16.
The Series is Ending & There Will Not be a 16th Season
Supernatural is officially (and sadly) coming to an end following the Season 15 finale in May, so there will not be a 16th season to look forward to this fall. It’s unclear exactly why the showrunners decided to end the incredibly successful series (they’ve kept unusually quiet about their reasons behind canceling the show), but according to actor Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester), the decision was difficult and took years of debating before they finally decided to call it quits.
“It wasn’t an easy decision. It was months and months, if not years, of discussion between he and I, between the rest of the cast, between the crew, between our writers, between our producers, between the studio, between the network. Nobody wanted to see this show fizzle out,” Ackles said during VegasCon 2019.
The Supernatural star continued, “Nobody wanted to see this show fizzle out. I think that it was everyone wanting to do the biggest service to the show that we could by going out strong. It just seemed like the writing was kind of on the wall as to when that was happening. I think everybody kind of felt that it was coming soon. So it was just taking that leap of faith of going like, ‘Well, guys, let’s get out the paint and paint that finish line, and hold our heads high, because what we’ve accomplished is unlike any other.’
“This was a community decision. The network and the studio did not say like, ‘Hey, guys, get outta here! You’re done,’” star Jared Padalecki (Sam Winchester) added.
Supernatural is the longest show in The CW’s history, even predating the network’s existence, according to Pop Culture. The show debuted in 2005 on The WB, which merged with UPN in September 2006. Supernatural celebrated its 300th episode last year and will wrap the series up after airing an impressive 327 episodes in total.
The Show Will Move From Thursday Nights to Monday Nights in March
You can check out the tentative schedule for the remaining Season 15 episodes below, but note that the dates may change depending on network updates before the finale (the schedule has already changed a few times this season). The show will also be moving to Monday nights after it’s mid-season return in March, so fans should keep that in mind moving forward. Check out the schedule below, according to IMDb:
- Episode 15.12 airs Monday, March 16, 2020
- Episode 15.13 airs Monday, March 23, 2020
- Episode 15.14 airs Monday, March 30, 2020
- Episode 15.15 airs Monday, April 6, 2020
- Episode 15.16 airs Monday, April 13, 2020
- Episode 15.17 airs Monday, April 20, 2020
- Episode 15.18 airs Monday, May 4, 2020
- Episode 15.19 airs Monday, May 11, 2020
- Episode 15.20 (the series finale) airs Monday, May 18, 2020
It’s worth nothing that there is still one more break left before the finale: the show will take a short break between the April 20 and May 4 episodes. However, as mentioned above, the schedule has already been altered once, so those dates may change again. Heavy will update this article if that happens.
Tune in Monday nights at 8 p.m. EST to catch new episodes of Supernatural, once the series returns from break on March 16. In the meantime, don’t forget to check out this author’s profile for all of your TV coverage and entertainment news.
