Supernatural is a trouper. It outlived The WB and most of its peers on The CW. The series is currently in its eighth season, and the ratings are better than ever. So will Sam and Dean gear up for a ninth season?

At the Winter TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour, CW president Mark Pedowitz spoke about Supernatural's fate.

"No determination's been made. We are pleased with how Wednesday night completely has worked out with Arrow being a bona fide hit and Supernatural actually gaining viewers back again. I think creatively the show's in a great place and there's always a good shot that [a renewal] could happen."

The CW doesn't plan on announcing renewals for the next few weeks. They want to test the waters of their winter schedule first.

"I would like to see our schedule come back on [with new episodes] next week, which we start on Monday and over the next couple of weeks we'll make the determination on what will come back for next fall."

A good sign weighing in the show's favor are stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki. Pedowitz confirmed, "The studio has locked them in." The actors are a go, the ratings are strong, let's green-light this thing.
