Will a new episode of “Supernatural” season 12 air on Thursday, April 20, 2017? This is something that all fans are asking, as it seems that a lot of TV shows have opted for a break for the week. Here is everything you need to know about a new episode of “Supernatural.”

No new episode of ‘Supernatural’ season 12 tonight

Unfortunately there isn’t a new episode of the Winchester brothers tonight. There will be a repeat instead. Fans can watch “Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell” again. This is the 15th episode of the latest season, where a hellhound escapes and starts killing in the woods. Fans also learn what happened to Lucifer after the show’s winter finale.

The CW hasn’t stated officially why it isn’t airing an all-new episode of “Supernatural” tonight. It is likely due to the Nielsen sweep that will take place in May. This is a way for the CW to decide when it will put the fantasy show on for its 13th season. “Supernatural” season 13 has already been confirmed.

The show did face a time change this year. Rather than airing at the usual 9p.m., it moved to a Thursday 8 p.m. slot to allow for “Riverdale” to begin. The CW will want to see if this was a good move or not.

Lucifer’s baby is on its way

For those wanting new episodes of “Supernatural” season 12, it will return in a week. Thursday, April 27, 2017 will see the first all-new episode. It will likely continue each week back-to-back until the season 12 finale. This is likely to happen on May 25, 2017 but it still needs to be confirmed by the network.

There should only be five episodes left, including the one from next week.

The trailer for season 12, episode 19 makes it clear that Lucifer’s baby is on its way. The Winchesters and Castiel have a month to find Kelly and put a stop to the birth of the spawn of Satan. There are high chances that this is a birth that won’t be stopped and it will be the storyline for season 13. It could mean that the British Men of Letters have no choice but to work with the American hunters to bring an end to the highly powerful half-angel.

Castiel will return to next week’s episode. Fans have missed him the last few weeks. He has been tracking Kelly unsuccessfully, while the Winchesters have worked with the British Men of Letters.

“Supernatural” season 12, episode 19 will definitely air on Thursday, April 27, 2017 at 9 p.m. on the CW network. This will be the case as long as there are no national emergencies that occur that would affect the planned schedule.
