Supernatural has defied the odds over its record breaking 15 year run on The CW. No other sci-fi show has stood the test of time, or brought together as many fans, as Supernatural. As the show comes to a close this spring we are sure to miss the Winchesters, Castiel, and the myriad of amazing characters and actors the show has introduced to the fans.
But before we say goodbye we can celebrate. This year, Supernatural will be featured at SXSW in Austin, TX. On Saturday, March 14 from 12:30 – 1:30 pm local time, Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, and Misha Collins will sit down to discuss all things Supernatural at the Supernatural: 15 Years of Fandom panel. The panel will take place at the Austin Convention Center and the panel synopsis is as follows:
What is 15 years old, had its start before social media, and has not only survived but thrived because of it? If you guessed the hit television series Supernatural, you’d be correct! From the series launch in 2005 on the former WB Network to the current 15th and final broadcast season on The CW, Supernatural is a case study in how a little “series-that-could” beat the odds to become the longest-running American sci-fi series in television history. Produced by Warner Bros. Television, series stars Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins will join a panel of Supernatural experts, including Samantha Highfill from Entertainment Weekly and Alice Jester from The Winchester Family Business, to discuss how a series with more than 300 episodes continues to trend on social media, sell out magazine covers and merchandise, pack fan conventions around the world, and be a force for social good — all while trying to make a positive and lasting impact.
