The CW might have decided to drop its planned spin-off to Supernatural for this year’s TV line-up, but the President of the network has revealed that a new offshoot from the long running series will be developed. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, CW President Mark Pedowitz broke the news and still believes in the potential the expand on the existing world they have created.
"We had six really good pilots this year. We felt that Supernatural [spinoff Bloodlines] just didn’t quite get there, though we do know that people would come to it based on what we saw that night. I've already spoken to the creator and the studio. They know that we want to develop once more next season, a Supernatural spinoff. What it is and what it isn't is still in the air."
Developed by Supernatural writer Andrew Dabb, Bloodlines would seen the action relocated to Chicago where an age old feud between monsters seeps into the criminal underworld. The response to the backdoor pilot in the current season was reasonably positive so it was quite a surprise that the CW opted out.
Next year will be Supernatural’s tenth anniversary with many fans believing it will be the final season, the CW have yet to make an official comment about the future of the show but has previously stated they would consider making more. The tenth run will bring the episode count to over 200 which is a valuable syndication commodity for the network. In addition to that, Supernatural has enjoyed its best ratings in the US for over four years with season nine so an 11th year might not be out of the question.
