It hasn't exactly been easy for Supernatural fans to mull over the fact that they have to bid farewell to Sam and Dean eventually. As you may have heard, series creator Eric Kripke's contract ends after the fifth season, and has, over the years, planned for the show to wrap up at the end of this season. But it's also no secret that Kripke has recently shown interest in continuing the story of the Winchester brothers and that Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles already have contracts for a sixth season.
Though nothing official has been made by The CW, Cinemaspy is reporting that Supernatural has been renewed for another season. While seeing Sam and Dean for another season is good news, some fans feel like the show should go out with a bang as it concludes with Sam and Dean confronting the Devil in a final showdown this season.
Meanwhile, Kripke isn't necessarily out of ideas. However, it's a little hard to imagine what season 6 would look like, if and when the network decides to pick up Supernatural for one more year. Will it be an entirely new chapter for the Winchester brothers, as Kripke previously hinted? Or will it be an extension of the apocalypse storyline? Or perhaps the aftermath of Lucifer's defeat? Again, nothing's official yet.
