As someone who used to make a lot of jokes on the internet about Supernatural outliving us all, I still can't believe I'm about to type these words, but here it goes: The CW has released its 2020 midseason premiere dates, and with them, the date of Supernatural's series finale. So clear your calendars, SPN Family, because after 15 seasons of monster hunting, brotherly bonding, and single man tears, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) will be closing the doors on the family business on Monday, May 18 at 8/7c.
That date makes it all very real, doesn't it? It often felt like we'd never get here, like the sun would burn out or climate change would kill us all before the Brothers Winchesters said their final goodbyes, but it's real. It's happening. Of course, there are still a number of episodes to go before the road ends, though. And the long-running, fan-favorite series, which actually debuted on The WB (remember The WB?), will move from its current Thursday timeslot to Mondays beginning March 16 and act as the lead-in to the second season of Roswell, New Mexico.
Supernatural isn't the only CW show signing off this season, though. Arrow is ending as well, and The CW has also revealed the series finale date for it too. But that show lasted just eight seasons, so who cares, am I right?
Supernatural's series finale airs Monday, May 18 at 8/7c on The CW.
