But as we know, the series is still a huge hit, which, according to Winchester mom actress Samantha Smith, is mainly due to that Family theme can be traced back to, which was always particularly in focus:

A lot of shows say, 'Oh, it's a family, it feels like family, and everyone loves each other. The difference to this series is (...) that Supernatural really does it takes it to a new level and there are multiple families within the family (...). So there are Fandom family and the Actor family (...) and Crew family, and that's what got them to this point.

In addition, the spin-offs do not work

Furthermore, in a deadline interview, The CW boss Mark Pedowitz spoke about the subject of future spin-offs. With Bloodlines and last Wayward Sisters There were already two Supernatural spin-offs in the works, but none of them got the green light for a full season. At least Pedowitz does not want to write off future spin-offs entirely. Still it looks bad, because according to him, Supernatural stands and falls with Sam and Dean:

I'll say it again, if there was a spin-off I'd love to have it. Indeed I have come to the conclusion that the series are the two brothers. If I can find a way to make Supernatural run all the time and still hold its own and the studio can figure out how to do it, we're all in.
