While Arrow is ending with an shortened ten episode season, Supernatural season 15 is expected run twnety episodes – the same order as the current season.

The support we have had from both Warner Bros Television and The CW has been incredible”. said executive producers Robert Singer and Andrew Dabb. “We’d like to give special thanks to Jensen, Jared and Misha for making this journey so special. It is now most important to us to give these characters that we love the send off they deserve.”
