CW Boss Talks Inevitable Supernatural Renewal, Breaking Pointe Cancellation
Supernatural will outlive us all.
The veteran CW series appears poised to return for Season 10 — and possibly beyond, network president Mark Pedowitz told reporters Wednesday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.
“As a fan of the show, who’s seen every episode, as long as I’m here and those [ratings] still hold, God bless them,” said Pedowitz. “They can go as long as they want.”
After the session, Pedowitz revealed that he expects to receive the script for the Supernatural spin-off backdoor pilot later this week.
Other takeaways from The CW’s exec session:
* The ballet-set reality series Breaking Pointe will not return. “It did not do enough on air to keep it going,” said Pedowitz.
* The network has acquired the four-hour miniseries Labyrinth, starring John Hurt, Sebastian Stan, Jessica Brown-Findlay and Tom Felton.
* The CW will debut the reality competition shows Barber Battle, hosted by Cedric the Entertainer, and the magic-focused Penn & Teller: Fool Us, later this year.Follow @VladaGelman
