It has been a while now it was stated that Supernatural would end with its 13th season. The series, throughout its 11 season course, had many ups and downs and for me, the last season and especially the last few episodes of it was a fluke.
Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki already completed 241 episodes and now they got their eyes on the milestone of 300 episodes. In an interview with EW Padalecki said:
“If we don’t make it to 300, I think Ackles and I will both be truly bummed. When we get to 300, I think Ackles and I will think it might be time to say bye. There’s a chance that changes, but we certainly do not take it for granted that we’re going to make it to 300.”
The 300th episode would mean that Supernatural would have a 14th season of at least 13 episodes – which could mean two things; a potential shortened final season or the mid-season episode of the 14th season. Producer Bob Singer talked about this a little while ago:
“We talked about wanting to be able to know when our end was, and if it was to be, let’s say, 300 episodes, we could tell a 13-episode story. I think it would be bad for this show to just ride off in the sunset without a finale. I think we’ve earned that. I don’t know what that finale is, but we’d certainly like to do one.”
Supernatural will return to CW for the 12th season on Thursday, October 13.
