In the wake of the Vancouver-filmed Arrow announcing it will conclude, another TV series is following suit. And it’s one that has appeared to have as much longevity as some of the otherworldly creatures it features.
On March 22, actors Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, and Misha Collins announced on social media that the fantasy-drama series Supernatural will finally end with its fifteenth season, making it one of the longest running in its genre.

Dear #spnfamily , Season 1 @jensenackles and I want you to know that next season, SEASON 15, will be the last season of #supernatural. I am so incredibly grateful for the family that we’ve all built together. I love y’all and am more appreciative of y’all than my meager vocabulary could hope to describe. I’m also typing through tears. So, please forgive me. ‘Til next time. #WinchestersNeverDie
The show was recently renewed for Season 15 in late January.
The final season will consist of 20 episodes, and will air in the 2019-2020 broadcast season. The conclusion of the series will have an impact upon local screen industry workers employed by the show.
The CW series followed brothers Sam and Dean Winchster, played by Padalecki and Ackles, who chase after and fight paranormal and unearthly entities ranging from spectres and shapeshifters to devils and witches.
Supernatural has been shooting Season 14 in Vancouver since July 10, 2018, and will wrap tomorrow (March 26).
Another CW series shot in Vancouver, Arrow, announced on March 6 that it will end with a shortened Season 8 in the 2019-2020 season.
However, a possible new Arrowverse series, Batwoman, just shot its pilot in Vancouver this month and will have to wait to be greenlit to become a series.
