Will There Be a Season 2 of ‘The Winchesters’?
The CW canceled The Winchesters after one season on May 11, 2023.
The reason behind the cancellation is most likely caused by the network going through a period of significant change.
Nexstar, the largest local TV company in the recently acquired a 75 percent stake in the network, with previous owners, Paramount Global and Warner Bros. Discovery, each retaining a 12.5 percent stake in the network. With the shift in leadership, the teen-focused network has already seen multiple cancellations as the company refocuses its priorities.
Per Deadline, The CW has decided not to order more episodes for season 1 of The Winchesters and fellow spinoff Walker: Independence. As a result, the two dramas will remain at their originally planned 13 episodes. The same is expected to apply to all of the network’s new shows.
What Is ‘Save The Winchesters’?
Following the cancellation news, Supernatural star and The Winchesters executive producer Jensen Ackles kickstarted a campaign to save the show titled “Save The Winchesters.” In a video posted to his Twitter, the actor, along with the cast of The Winchesters, spoke to fans directly in an attempt to save their show, asking them to hashtag #SaveTheWinchesters to social media posts.
“Let’s blow the top off this thing and show them what this fandom is made of,” Jensen said in the May 2023. “Let’s find The Winchesters a new home because you know what? We still got work to do.”
The Winchesters actor Drake Rodger echoed Jensen’s sentiments.
“We love you all so much,” he began. “And we just want the networks and the studios to see how powerful this fandom is so please hashtag.”
However, less than a month later, Jensen shared an update on the show’s future.
“To all of you who watched, followed, and supported this story, THANK YOU. And to all those who brought this show to life … I couldn’t be more proud of what we all did together. But as they say … timing is everything,” he wrote on Twitter in June 2023. “With a massive Network shift coupled with an industry strike … welp … that’s some unfortunate timing. Sleep well dear @WinchestersOnCW … until we meet again. Somewhere down the road.”
