The CW announced that it has renewed all of its shows for another season.

That means Supernatural will get season 12 and become the longest running scripted show on the CW/WB pulling past 7th Heaven, which ended after 11 seasons. Only America's Next Top Model has been around longer, having started in 2003.

Early announcement here.

The good news hit media sites first being reported by Deadline   which also noted that reports are that Jared and Jensen are signed for both season 12 and 13. Other sites picked up on the news including VultureMashable, which noted

This mass renewal is becoming something of a tradition for The CW, which has had a steady slate for the past few years — anchored by veterans like Supernatural and Vampire Diaries.

TV Guide, The Hollywood Reporter, TVLine, Variety all covered the news!
