‘Supernatural’ season 12, episode 9 preview: Return date for Jared Padalecki – Jensen Ackles series


Supernatural -

Tonight’s new episode of “Supernatural” (entitled “LOTUS”) is the last one of the fall, and with that, we are about to embark on a hiatus — one that’s going to last for a pretty long time given that we’re talking about one in the middle of the season.

Let’s not waste any time now before giving you some answers in terms of when the show is coming back: Per the Futon Critic, Thursday, January 26 is the date. One thing we did learn about previously is that the show is going to be coming back at an earlier time in 8:00 p.m. Eastern time. The CW is moving “Legends of Tomorrow” to Tuesday, and as a result of that we’re going to continue to see the sort of scheduling carousel that this network is largely known for at this point. They constantly love to shift and twist things around; “Supernatural” has aired on several different nights of the week, and in several different time-slots.

In the end, there’s not really any reason to worry about what’s coming for “Supernatural” in terms of the scheduling because this is a show that always keeps on keeping on. It hasn’t been in danger of cancellation in years, it has a devoted fan base, and Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles have shown little sign of wanting to slow down.

Personally, our pipe dream is to see the show make it to fifteen years — we like those sort of big milestone numbers, so our hope is that the series will choose to go out big on one of those like a 15 or, if we’re incredibly lucky, a 20. It’s already the longest-running show of its kind ever, so there are no more records to break in that capacity.
