Basic info and cast
Created and executive produced by Eric Kripke and produced by Kripke Enterprises, Wonderland Sound and Vision and Warner Bros. Television, Supernatural is a hit American science-fiction, horror and adventure television series that follows the lives of two brothers, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester, as they hunt demons, ghosts and monsters. Season 12 of America’s longest-running science fiction series premiered on The CW on October 13, 2016 with 22 new episodes.
After their mother burns down in a suspicious house fire and their father disappears on a demon hunting trip, Dean, who is the older brother, pulls Sam out of Stanford University and the two begin living a life on the road, hunting supernatural beings and collecting information about their father’s whereabouts. Eventually, they do find their father, who ends up trading his life so Dean can live after a car crash. In season 12, when new showrunners Andrew Dabb and Robert Singer took over, Sam and Dean have to deal with the return of their mother Mary, as well as with Lucifer being on the run and the imminent threat posed by the Men of Letters organization.
Ratings dynamics and renewal potential
Supernatural has been a fan favorite for years, and the viewership has been strong over the course of its run. The current season premiered to 2.15 million viewers, and the subsequent episodes are averaging 1.7 million viewers per episode. The show has amassed a loyal following and has become a cult classic, praised for the balance between the nail-biting action in the storyline, emotional moments, humorous bits, excellent acting, directing and writing. The series seems to remain as popular as ever, and it is practically impossible to imagine The CW`s programming slate without the three-time Emmy nominated Supernatural, so we are expecting a renewal announcement for season 13 to come around soon.
