You may have seen rumors that Supernatural may be leaving Netflix in the future. We’re here to dispell the myth and take a look at whether or not Supernatural is going to be leaving Netflix in the near future.
Supernatural has been a permanent feature on Netflix for multiple years now with the first time it appeared on the streaming service being back in 2012. New seasons have been coming to Netflix in the United States every year since.
The series has now been on the air since 2005 and has recently surpassed 325 episodes. Its final season, season 15, is due to air on The CW in late 2019.
Let’s dispell the myth. Supernatural is not leaving Netflix anytime soon.
The reason this rumor has been floating over the past few months is that Netflix and The CW ended their overall output deal. Many have misinterpreted that to mean all content from The CW is leaving. The biggest rumor has been that Riverdale will be leaving Netflix.
That couldn’t be further from the truth. All existing content on Netflix from the network will stay and continue to get new updates. That means season 15 will come to Netflix in 2020.
Once season 15 does arrive, that starts the clock as to when Supernatural will actually leave Netflix. It takes around 3-5 years for Netflix to lose/give up the rights to the series. That means Supernatural will likely be sticking around on Netflix until 2023 to 2025.
Where will Supernatural stream after Netflix?
The CW content looks to be finding their way onto two streaming services with the Netflix deal coming to an end. The CW has shared ownership between Warner Brothers and CBS. The CBS produced shows will likely end up on CBS All Access and Warner properties ending up on HBO Max.
In the case of Supernatural, it’s likely the show will eventually land on HBO Max.
Netflix has been trying to get into the genre that Supernatural sits with titles like Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, The Order and The Society.
