Seems like just yesterday that we were cracking wise about the inevitable renewal of CW mainstay Supernatural, but lo, the show that aired its first episode in September 2005 — the long-ago era of President George W. Bush, Batman Begins and “Hollaback Girl” — will be ending its run after its 15th season.
Even if you enjoyed poking fun at the show’s incredible ability to craft endless storylines (and retain a hugely loyal fan base) for those demon-hunting Winchesters, you kind of have to doff your cap to that run. Suck it, Big Bang Theory and your measly 12 seasons.
As is always the case with these sort of announcements, key Supernatural folks took to Twitter to share some feels:
Hey #SPNFamily here’s a little message from @JensenAckles @mishacollins and me. I’m so grateful for the family that’s been built because of the show. Excuse me while i go cry. pic.twitter.com/QDXDsAyIfK

Well, it’s official. One more round for the Winchester brothers. Though nothing ever really ends in Supernatural…does it? ???? https://t.co/zaZHJX4H9L

Carry on, wayward sons. Even if we seldom tuned in any more, a world without Supernatural returning to the TV schedule will be a strange one.
