Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Jim Beaver Writer: Andrew Dabb, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Robert Singer Network: The CW, Thursday @ 8 PM Original Airdate: November 19, 2020 SUPERNATURAL does several smart things with its series finale. The first and most important is to end in a way that doesn’t make longtime fans want to kill themselves or other people. That aside, SUPERNATURAL spreads its denouement over two hours, the documentary “The Long Road Home,” and the actual last episode, “Carry On.” Reversing what might be the expected order, the say-goodbye doc, “The Long Road Home,” runs first.

Showalter Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: November 12, 2020 To be clear, the episode “Inherit the Earth” is not the series finale of SUPERNATURAL. That comes November 19.
