“Supernatural” is the longest-running sci-fi/genre series in the history of American broadcast television. By the time the Warner Bros-produced show comes to an end, it will have aired a total of 327 episodes.
The Eric Kripke-created show launched on The WB network on Sept. 13, 2005 and is the only series from that network remaining on The CW.
“Firstly, we would like to thank all the people who have been involved with the show both in front of and behind the camera. For us it has been an experience of a lifetime,” executive producers Robert Singer and Andrew Dabb said in a statement. “The support we have had from both Warner Bros Television and The CW has been incredible. We’d like to give special thanks to Jensen, Jared and Misha for making this journey so special. It is now most important to us to give these characters that we love the send off they deserve.”
The “Supernatural” Season 14 finale will air on Thursday, April 25 at 8/7c on The CW.
