On Monday, The CW shared some details about the two-hour show “Supernatural.”

The network announces that “Supernatural” will premiere on May 18. Several new characters have been introduced in the new season, such as Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, and Misha Collins. The series is entirely shot in British Columbia, Vancouver, and Los Angeles, with Kripke serving as showrunner.

‘Supernatural’ – the US television series

The pilot was viewed by more than 5 million people on the network and YouTube. After the success of first five seasons, The CW immediately ordered new episodes. So far, Jeremy Carver, Sera Gamble, Andrew Dabb, and Robert Singer have served as showrunners.

Its eleventh season premiered in October 2015 and became one of the highest-grossing television shows of the year. “Supernatural” is a famous American series developed by Eric Kripke. According to Eric, the show was intended to focus on weekly demons and monsters, with Dean and Sam appearing in different episodes.

Several companies were recruited to work on the visual effects of the pilot episode, “Entity FX.” Later on, Ivan Hayden was finalized as the visual effects supervisor. He worked with all levels of production to give the series a fantastic look. During pre-production, Ivan went through the script and dialogues, looking for possible visuals. He then applied 2D and 3D effects to the series.

Another challenge for Hayden was to work on the appearances of supernatural creatures. The expert worked hard to come up the expectations of Eric Kripke.

Online distribution

Rather than having the series premiere on a channel, The WB took a step forward and made the episodes available on Hulu, Netflix, and Yahoo. Following the success of its first two seasons, the network added the series to Apple's iTunes Store in December 2012.

In February 2013, the network began streaming all episodes of “Supernatural” on its official website with limited commercials. The same month, Australian Network Ten signed a deal with Warner Bros. Television and offered full series for download via the official website.

Merchandise

It would not be wrong to say that “Supernatural” has a significant amount of merchandise available, such as shirts, sunglasses, posters, and temporary tattoos. Inkworks recently released beautiful trading cards for the show, featuring the main characters in eye-catching costumes. A game of the same name has also been developed Margaret Weis Productions. It uses materials from the series, comics, and novels. Earlier this month, Funko released three pop form figures of Sam, Castiel, and Dean.
