|“||God was supposed to be gone. (...) We were free. (...) How the hell are we supposed to fight God?||”|
Supernatural was renewed for a fifteenth season by The CW on January 31, 2019. The season consisted of 20 episodes and aired on Thursdays at 8PM EST before moving to Mondays at the same time, starting on March 16, 2020. Filming began on July 18, 2019 and was supposed to end on April 2, 2020. Because of the delay in production caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, filming was resumed on August 18, 2020, and concluded on September 11, 2020.
Executive producers Eugenie Ross-Leming and Robert Berens stated that the question of free will would definitely be part of the main focus over the course of the show's final episodes, as the cast grapples with the possibility that the God they thought they knew doesn't exactly have humanity's best interests in mind.
The season premiered on October 10, 2019 with Back and to the Future and was originally going to end on May 18, 2020 with Carry On. However, the filming was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. In tweets posted on Monday afternoon, Dabb revealed that the 15th and final season would go on hiatus after the March 23 episode Destiny's Child.
On March 22, 2019, it was announced that it's the show's final season.
Synopsis[edit | edit source]
The epic journey of the Winchester brothers come to a close as Supernatural enters its final season. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have battled demons and angels, mythical creatures and monsters, in a seemingly unending quest to save the world. But in the final battle of the show's 15th season, they face off against God Himself (Rob Benedict), refusing to kill their surrogate nephilim son Jack (Alexander Calvert), and thus bringing about God's decision to end this reality once and for all...
