SUPERNATURAL's final season recently hit a snag due to the outbreak of COVID-19. The Pandemic has shutdown production on many series and movies in both the United States and around the Globe. SUPERNATURAL films in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Despite a couple of new episodes returning to The CW Primetime schedule as planned on March 16th, an announcement was soon made by Showrunner Andrew Dabb that production had already been halted on March 13th.
Dabb has assured fans that production on the final two episodes of the series will eventually resume to wrap up the story spanning a 15-season run.
"We, The CW, and Warner Bros fully intend to return and finish the series. It's not a matter of "if", it's a matter of "when."
The concept is to give fans stuck at home and away from the usual convention centers a chance to unite during troubled times and give them a unique opportunity to indulge in their fandom and celebrate Pop Culture programming and icons from the safety of their own homes. Additional Virtual Experience dates and celebrity groups will be announced as they are formed. Though subject to change amidst the uncertain climate we all face, Wizard World™ Chicago is currently slated to return to the region August 20-23, 2020. Among the guests scheduled are CW18 favorites of past and present: Alyson Hannigan (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, How I Met Your Mother, Penn & Teller: Fool Us), James Marsters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Smallville) , Alexis Denisof (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, How I Met Your Mother), Emily Swallow (Supernatural, The Mandalorian), Craig Parker (Reign, Charmed), and Phil LaMarr (Supergirl).
