We, frankly, didn't believe the rumors and, therefore, we were confident that The CW is about to pick up Supernatural for another round. Read our forecast on the subject below. This information is essential since it showcases the way how we do our estimates. Unlike many shows on TV, Supernatural looked firm because of its television ratings. The current season premiere has lost about 2.3% of its viewing audience. The first episode of the thirteenth season has garnered 2.10 million viewers with a 0.72 key demo (P18-49). In fact, this figure is better versus the same of Season 11, for instance.
Thus, we haven't seen any reason to cancel the show with such steady ratings. Moreover, as a rule, the viewership decreases twice by the end of Season 1 in the case of a vast majority of television series. But, as for Supernatural, the audience dropped two times just from the beginning of Season 13. Therefore, we've concluded that the television ratings of Supernatural can't negatively affect the decision on renewal.
Another essential factor for The CW was the reception by critics and viewers. If you look up at the numbers, the thirteenth season has received the universal acclaim. According to Rotten Tomatoes, Supernatural Season 13 has a score of 7.87/10/100% among critics and 4.6/5/90% among the viewers, respectively. On IMDb, the current season of the show has a rating of 7.6/10 among the viewers. So, we doubted that The CW is going to cancel the show looking at such impressive response from the target audience.
Finally, we did not rule out that The CW is preparing a spin-off to Supernatural, called Wayward Sisters. In that case, the network could wrap the show after its fourteenth season. But still, Supernatural looked very strong from any point of view. Thus, we doubted that The CW was about to cancel this show.
Summing up, Supernatural possessed the incredible potential for renewal despite numerous rumors. The series had excellent television ratings, an outstanding reception from critics and viewers, tremendous fandom, as well as a lot of stories to tell. We believed thereby that The CW would decide to keep the show in their lineup.
