Why is Supernatural ending?

Was Supernatural canceled by The CW?

After 15 long and beautiful years, we’ve seen the last new Supernatural episode. The series has come to an end, and it was just as emotional as we expected.

The question many still have is why Supernatural ended. Was it canceled by The CW or was this a decision made by the stars and production?

You’ll be happy to hear that The CW didn’t cancel Supernatural. It wasn’t just canned because of poor ratings or because The CW thought it was time the show came to an end. This decision came from those who loved the show just as much, if not more than, us.

Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki decided it was time

After Supernatural season 15 was confirmed, Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, and Misha Collins filmed a video. They broke the news to their crew first, many of whom had been with the two male leads from the very beginning, and then shared the news with the fans.

They decided it was time for the series to come to an end.

There were a few reasons because of this. One of the big ones was that they wanted to spend more time with their families. Ackles and Padalecki’s families lived in Texas while they filmed in Vancouver. They’d get home as much as they could, but it was a lot of time traveling.

It wasn’t an easy decision. The show crew was a family to them, too. Padalecki met his wife because of the series. There were just so many memories and so many bonds formed because of the one little show. You could tell in the video that all three men were sad to bring this to a close.

But it’s good to know that Supernatural went out on their terms. It’s been a wild ride, but it’s been written to say goodbye to Team Free Will as we’d always hoped.

Supernatural‘s final episodes will be on Netflix next week.
