Hey, "Supernatural" fans. We're happy to be able to officially inform you that The CW gave your show a brand new season 13! Wow, I'm now wondering will this series ever decide to come to an end. It certainly doesn't look like it. Apparently, there was never any type of doubt that the renewal would get greenlit because it got a very early renewal way back in January 2017 according to TV Line. The big announcement took place at the big 2017 Television Critics Association winter press tour.

Other shows renewed too

At that time, the network also announced the renewal of some of their other shows: "The Flash" for season 4, "Jane the Virgin" for season 4, "Arrow" for season 6, "DC’s Legends of Tomorrow" for season 3, "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" for season 3 and "Supergirl" for season 3.

Since then, we've gotten renewal notices for additional shows: "The 100" for season 4, "Riverdale" for season 2, "The Originals" for season 5 and "iZombie" for season 4.

I was actually surprised to see that "iZombie" is already about to go into its 4th season. It literally seems like it premiered just yesterday. Anyways, lets get back into the "#Supernatural" stuff. This great news definitely means that new spoilers, cast interviews, promo clips, promo photos and more promo stuff is on the way in the upcoming weeks and months. We expect to see them return to the big 2017 "Comic-Con" event in San Diego, CA this July too. I would be heavily surprised if we don't see them there.

Proven performers

During the big renewal announcement, the CW boss Mark Pedowitz did deliver a nice statement about the shows.

He said they are proven performers and they gave them early renewals so the producers can have plenty of time to prepare for the 2017-2018 season. Well, it doesn't get any better than that.

Currently, we don't have the number of episodes that the new season of "Supernatural" will be offering up. However, if I had to guess, I would say that it'll more than likely get another 23 episode order from the network. The premiere will probably arrive around October like it has been, but it's always tough to say which time slot it will fall in because the CW has switched it around quite a few times during it's 12 season run. We'll see how that works out. Hopefully, it can keep its same Thursday night time slot.

CW doesn't care

The ratings for season 12 did experience a slight drop but The CW doesn't seem to care when it comes to this show. It premiered to an audience of 2.1 million viewers with a 0.83 demographic rating for ages 18-49. The demo numbers were down a negative 3.49 percent from the season 11 finale episode and the viewers were actually up 10 percent from the previous season's finale.

The latest episode 21, scored a 0.52 demographic rating to go along with its 1.4 million visitors that it brought in. All I can say, is they better be glad they're on The CW because they would get mutilated on one the bigger networks with those numbers.
