Hollywood, like all other industries, has been hit hard by the new global coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). Production has been discontinued on almost all television programs, including Supernatural who was wrapping up her 15th and final season. With the long CW series on an indefinite break, the question of whether or not Supernatural will have a looming series finale. The good news is that Sam and Dean Winchester’s journey will end properly, according to showrunner Andrew Dabb. The bad news is that, given the current pandemic, we don’t know when the finale will be released.
In a March 23 tweet, Dabb revealed that episode 13, “Destiny’s Child,” would be the last episode to air for a while. The filming of the last season was halted on March 13, and although episodes 14 to 18 were filmed, the visual effects and sound production teams were unable to complete the post-production before everything was finished. ‘stopped. It also means that the two remaining episodes of the 20-episode final season were not filmed at all. “Because of the shutdown, this will be our last episode for a while. Stay well, stay safe, and we will see you on the other side,” Dabb tweeted before the premiere of “Destiny’s Child”. “We filmed throughout episode 18, but our visual and sound effects services have closed due to the epidemic. So, at the moment, the episodes cannot be ended. However, there are special treats to come – to help us all out. “
“It is not a question of” if “, it is a question of” when “.”
Dabb further clarified that everyone, from the actors to the production company, is determined to ensure Supernatural gets the end it deserves. “We, the CW and Warner Bros. have every intention of coming back and ending the series. It’s not a question of” if “, it’s a question of” when “,” he tweeted. .
At this point, it is too early to know when it will be safe for anyone to return to work, and for now, the CW is filling up. Supernaturalthe time slot with episodes of Which line is it anyway?. Post-production of episodes that have already been filmed may be completed this summer, leading to a premiere in the fall for the remaining episodes of the series. However, filming the last two episodes can be complicated by Jared Padalecki’s commitment to his new show Walker, which was directed to the series by The CW before the pilot was filmed. It is not known if Padalecki will have to wait to start filming Walker until he finishes filming Supernatural, or if he will shoot the double assignment on the two shows until the end of the series. Either way, the logistics of filming the final episodes of the series will likely be complex.
The only thing that is certain at the moment is that the stars of the series think that the final will be worth the wait. In a March 16 interview with TV guide, Padalecki said he “is looking forward to filming the finale,” and Misha Collins revealed, “I don’t think there will be dry eyes in the audience.” For the moment, Supernatural fans will just have to channel their inner Winchester and continue until we can see the much-awaited series finale.
