Supernatural fans will have to wait a little longer than expected to see the final episodes of the CW’s long-running series due to work shutdowns because of Covid-19.
The series showrunner, Andrew Dabb, took to Twitter to deliver the news:
(Clarification: We have filmed through episode 18, however our visual effects and sound departments have closed because of the outbreak. So, right now, the episodes can’t be finished. However, have some special treats coming along the way– to help us all get through this.)

The Winchester brothers have been through a lot since they first set out on a hunt together in episode one back in September 2005, and this isn’t the first time production has been stalled in its 15 year history.
Some may remember that back in 2008 during the writer’s strike there was a gap in the series from February to May of that year, and at this point, we have faith in the CW that they’ll do right by Supernatural fans.
This final series is meant to consist of a total of 20 episodes which leaves only two to be filmed when work can resume. One way or another, we will get to say a proper farewell to Sam (Jared Padalecki), Dean (Jensen Ackles), and Castiel (Misha Collins).
