Supernatural stars Jared Padalecki and Arrow Star Stephen Amell is about to have a little more time. The two shows, which have been part of The CW for 14 and seven seasons respectively, are scheduled to end in the 2019/2020 television season. It will be a huge change of pace for both actors, but luckily for them, they seem to have put in place a strong adaptation plan.
Amell, who plays Oliver Queen / Green Arrow on Arrow, shared a photo on Instagram with Padalecki Sunday and he enjoying a glass of wine in what Amell nicknamed "the first meeting of actors who will soon be a group of unemployment support". Check below.
It was announced earlier this month that Arrow would end with the eighth season of the series to come, after weeks of generous rumors that various series of Arrowverse would end or would be significantly changed following the next event "Crisis on Infinite Earths". Although it seems, for the moment, that the rest of the series will continue, Arrow is now ready to get a final season of ten episodes – a season whose end will align with the timing of "Crisis".
In the case of SupernaturalHowever, this news is a much bigger surprise. Supernatural is the oldest show in CW's network history. He first debuted on The WB as part of the Fall 2005 lineup and was a series of marquees for the network of all times, even surviving the transition to The CW. The long series has now been broadcast by more than 300 episodes, but last week Padalecki, along with co-stars Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins, announced that the 15th season would be the last in the series.
"Guys, Jared, Jensen and Misha here, and we have really big news that we wanted you all to hear from us," Padalecki said in the video ad. Ackles continued: "We just told the crew that while we are very excited about our 15th season, it will be our last."
While Arrow will have a shorter final season than normal – again, probably due to the highly anticipated event "Crisis on Infinite Earths" – Supernatural will have a much longer race in his sending of the last season. The fifteenth and last season of Supernatural is scheduled for 20 episodes, leaving plenty of adventures for the Winchester brothers in their last round.
Arrow broadcast Monday evening at 8h / 7c. Supernatural is on Thursdays nights at 8 / 7c.
