So how long will Supernatural continue on The CW? Apparently, the two men with the most power in that decision just happen to be the two guys who play the stars of the long-running series.
Andrew Dabb, who took over as showrunner for Supernatural at the beginning of the current season, told CinemaBlend‘s Laura Hurley that what might ultimately spell the end of the show is when Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles feel they’ve had enough of the Winchester brothers.
“I think what’s going to stop us ultimately is at what point to Jared and Jensen decide they’ve played the rules for too long, or at what point do we get to a point where we feel like we’re repeating ourselves. Or we feel like we can’t take some of the bigger swings – whether they work or not – that we’ve taken in the past.”
It doesn’t seem like the show is anywhere near that yet, at least evidenced by The CW’s recent decision to renew the show for a 13th season.
