Supernatural Boss Says Tonight's Episode Is Last One 'For a While' Due to Coronavirus, Promises Fans: 'We Fully Intend to Return to Finish Series'

Supernatural‘s final season is pausing sooner than expected: Executive producer Andrew Dabb announced on Twitter that tonight’s episode will be the last fresh original to air for some time.

As a result of the coronavirus-fueled production shutdown, “This will be our last episode for awhile,” Dabb wrote. He later clarified that although the series completed filming through Episode 18 — this week’s installment is Episode 13 — “our visual effects and sound departments have closed because of the outbreak. So, right now, the episodes can’t be finished.”

So we are facing another hellatus, and this time we have no idea how long it will last. Check back with Winchester Family Business as we will report information as it becomes available.
