Cast after wrapping the finale
- On May 11, The CW announced it would not proceed with The Winchesters for a second season. Soon after, Executive Producer Jensen took to social media saying "We've got work to do" - a famous line from Supernatural, with the hastags #SaveTheWinchesters #spnfamily. Deadline noted that Warner Brothers Television was said to be "aggressive in its efforts" to find a new home for the show.
- Jensen and the cast of The Winchesters talked about wanting to continue the story to EW. Jensen said "I do have this crazy optimism for this show and I think it largely resides in the energy that we found on set with this cast and this crew." He said that Robbie Thompson had a five year plan for the show, and that they were keen to bring back more characters from the Supernatural mothership in later seasons. Jensen said it could even a lead to a "possible return of Supernatural down the line" something he said he'd discussed with Jared.

- Jensen, Danneel and their production company Chaos Machine have a deal with Amazon which covers both producing and acting. It was reported that the projects in the works at Warner Brothers will continue there.
- Following charges being dropped against Alec Baldwin, the film Rust has resumed filming. Filming stopped 18 months ago when cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was killed and director Joel Souza was injured during an on-set incident with a gun. Jensen is part of the cast that has returned to finish the movie. Alec Baldwin stated that finishing the film was part of the settlement with the family of Halyna and that funds raised from it would go into a trust fund for her son.

NEWS AND INTERVIEWS
The Writers Guild of America began a strike on 2 May, 2023. The strike is about the amount of money TV writers get paid and about how the structure of the industry has changed and how that is affecting both writing as a career, and the shows it produces. What does a strike mean? Writers can’t work on any current projects with studios, or take meetings about current or future projects.
The last writers Strike was in 2007/08, and you can read about it at and how it impacted Supernatural at our Writers Guild of America Strike entry. Video on demand and streaming services were in their early stages, Netflix started its streaming service in 2007. That strike was particularly focused on remuneration related to residuals from DVDs and also payment conditions for the new digital media and requirements to employ WGA writers.
TV writing has now almost become part of the gig economy. The breakdown of the writing career path in TV both stops writers advancing in their learning and career, and also means people with little experience end up as show runners. Income becomes lower, and unpredictable.This particularly disadvantages writers who are not from wealthy backgrounds, and so often disproportionately further excludes not only working class, but often other marginalized groups as well.
