A dark fantasy show created by initially created by Eric Kripke, ‘Supernatural’ follows brother Sam and Dean Winchester as they battle all things evil. Although the show initially aired on The WB network, it changed hands when The WB merged with UPN in 2006 to create The CW Television Network. As it stands, ‘Supernatural’ airs on The CW.

Season 1 of ‘Supernatural’ first made its way to viewers’ screens on September 13, 2005, and since then, the show has seen a whopping 14 seasons air, and is currently the longest-running live-action fantasy series in the history of American television. The show enjoys critical acclaim and tremendous popularity among viewers, and the good news for fans of the show is that ‘Supernatural’ will be returning again with its fifteenth season. However, all good things have to come to an end, and fans will be disheartened to know that Season 15 will be the last we see of Sam and Dean Winchester.

Supernatural Plot: What is it about?

Over the years, Sam and Dean Winchester has seen more adventures than can be detailed, but the premise of the show is a rather simple one, and has remained unchanged since the show began.

‘Supernatural’ revolves around Sam and Dean, who were raised by their father John to be hunters of all evil supernatural entities. Sam and Dean’s origin story is a rather tragic one, with the brothers having lost their mother to a demon during their childhood. The show follows the brothers two decades after their mother’s murder, when they decide to use their demon hunting skills to track down their recently missing father.

Fighting evil all along the way and saving as many people as they can, Sam and Dean finally track down their father, only to find out that he has found a lead on the demon who killed Mary, and has found a way to track and kill it. While the brothers get determined to avenge their mother’s death, their quest for revenge gets complicated when Dean starts developing frightening powers that allow him to foresee the deaths of others. These visions, Dean realizes is somehow related to their mother’s murderer, who also seems to have mysterious plans surrounding Sam. After their father passes away, Sam and Dean are left to continue the quest and fight evil on their own, although they get help every now and then from other hunters too.

As Sam and Dean travel cross country in their signature 1967 Chevrolet Impala, they battle all sorts of evil including demons, corrupt angels, vampires, werewolves, witches, shapeshifters, demigods, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and even Lucifer himself. In these adventures, Sam and Dean sometimes lose people that they love. However, they also make new friends who they learn to call family. Through all these adventures, one thing remains constant – Sam and Dean are willing to go through hell to save those that they love.

Over the 15 years of its existence, ‘Supernatural’ has managed to create a fanbase that this rivalled by very few television series. It has spawned fandoms, novels, spin-off series, merchandise, and more. Unsurprisingly, the show enjoys tremendous popularity among viewers, and it has a brilliant overall rating of 8.5/10 on IMDb, after a whopping 348,000 votes. Critics, too, have largely praised the show, which enjoys a solid overall score of 88% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Supernatural Season 15 Release Date: When will it premiere?

‘Supernatural’ season 14 premiered on October 11, 2018, and is slated to see its conclusion on April 25, 2019. Fans had been rather fearful of Season 14 being the last, but The CW quashed those fears on January 31, 2019, when they announced that ‘Supernatural’ would be making a comeback with Season 15.

While fans were jubilant after the announcement, their joy was cut short when it was announced on March 22, 2019 that Season 15 would be the final season of ‘Supernatural’. The announcement was made by Padalecki, Ackles, and Collins via a video posted on Instagram.

“We have some big news that we wanted y’all to hear from us.
