    I think if they keep the angels coming in each episode, the ratings will go up and up. After all, the christians in America would tune in just to see how they are being represented.

    Dear Fans,

    I thought you might appreciate my thoughts on the matter of the future of Supernatural. I have never watched the show myself but I am an experienced television critic and will draw my information from ratings information and from other shows similar to this.
    Firstly it is true that The WB have put in an order for a full 22 episode season, personally I believe this to be an unwise decision implemented too early. Though the information may not have surfaced until much later Supernatural has actually been picked up for a full season since it's 4th episode when it was performing well into the 5 million viewers. However if one is to fast-forward the clock it is clear to see the WB's trust in the show had been misplaced. Eventually the bad reviews of the show connected to the viewers and the show's ratings dipped to the low 4 million and lost against Spelling's "Charmed" which is in the WB's worst timeslot and is in it's 8th year. The WB has made this decision too early with many of it's shows such as Popular and Roswell both of which lasted only 2 seasons. In an effort to boost low ratings in the second half of season one which is almost inevitable the WB will ask for a change in it's second year which always seems to kill the show rather than save it. Ratings are then likely to spiral down and the WB will predictably cut the episode order to 18 episodes or move it to another timeslot before cancelling the show. After this the show may be lucky enough to be picked up by another network, though UPN would have earlier been a favourite for this type of move they have now stated they will never again pick up a used show especially not from the WB. This statement came after both Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Roswell both did badly for the network after making the move from the WB. Though there is a chance the network may renew the show for a 3rd season something which I do not expect but am prepared for. The budget however will be cut dramatically and even then there is no guarantee the show will last for another 22 episodes or even 18. It is not a good sign when a new show's ratings begin to diminish after only 10 episodes on the air. I know what to expect from the fans, they will be disbelieving as ever. If one was to step away and see the whole picture however the story of a show such as this one has been told over and over.
    Another reason why the show is unlikely to make it to a 3rd season is the much talked about newer supernatural drama "Cult" which is getting more buzz than Supernatural ever did. This could even have the possibility to take Supernatural's timeslot and kill it before the show even makes it to a 2nd season.
    I suggest if the fans want this show to survive they should be prepared to campaign hard to get this show moved or renewed because this is the beginning of the worst.
    Thank you,

    Oliver Trimble
    Wow,don't you feel silly!

    I'm not a fan of Supernatural but who would make prediction like that. Great shows get canceled after just after one or two seasons like LIFE, Dark Angle, Firefly and many others, and bad shows can last long after that like FRIENDS and CSI: Miami. The only easy things to predict are that there will be lots of spinoffs of shows like Law and Order, CSI, NCIS(which in it's self is basically a spinoff of Jag/CSI) and reality shows. Because networks viewers don't like orginal ideas(outside of Lost), and networks want ratings and money so they stay safe sticking with a brand name show or a reality show. Many a good show died because of this. So trying to predict what show will last is just plain stupid unless it's absolutly terrible which Supernatural isn't, it's just a average show.

    Dear Fans,

    SPN is, as of these days, likely to get its sixth season. Contrary to the titular prediction it made it not only to the third season, but to a very great fourth as well, and pretty solid fifth. Enter.

    The original poster not only got it wrong, but double wrong, with the show getting not just a 3rd, a 4th, or a 5th season but it WILL SEE A SIXTH SEASON!!!

    In television nowadays it is hard to predict when a show will finish or be cancelled but I have to say I am pleasantly surprised that SPN has been renewed for a 6th season.


    I would suggest asking rather than telling us when a show will get cancelled.

    Originally the show was supposed to have a five season story arc, now they're going into a six season with (hopefully) fresh ideas.

    I never got into it myself. I guess it more of Fantasy to me than Science Fiction... There really isn't very much science in it. However, they really have some interesting monsters.. LOL

    LOL, I wouldn't start a career in fortunetelling if I were you. Supernatural is well in the 6th season and looking AWESOME!


    (I'm hoping for season 7, even though it isn't planned, but I'm decided on keeping my hopes well up high. )
