The Network Upfronts are held each May, in the last week of sweeps week. Each network has a separate session in which to promote its programming for the next year, and showcase new shows. Over recent years, renewal, cancellation or pickup announcements will be made earlier.
Jared and Jensen appeared at the CW Networks Upfront presentation in New York. With the show's Season 13 renewal already announced earlier in the year, the main news was that Season 13 Supernatural would have an animated episode set in the universe of Scooby-Doo. At Jus In Bello Italy 2017 Jared and Jensen confirmed it would be the 16th episodes, and that they along with Misha, had already recorded the dialogue for the episode at Bryan Adams studio in Vancouver.
It was also announced that Supernatural would retain its 8pm Thursday slot for the next season, although it would now be followed by Arrow.

In 2014, Supernatural was celebrated for its upcoming 10th season, and for Season 9 having the highest ratings in four years. Jensen, Jared and Misha all attended The CW Network's 2014 Upfronts. It started with the CW Affiliates dinner on May 14th, followed by press, the stage presentation and after party on May 15th.
CW Boss Mark Pedowitz announced that Supernatural would stay on Tuesday nights, with new Arrow spinoff Flash as its lead in. It shows how much faith the network has in Supernatural, to pair it with its hottest new property. Pedowitz said that while the proposed Supernatural spinoff Supernatural: Bloodlines “just didn’t quite get there” creatively, he as a "real brand" and was keen to revisit the idea for season 10 with the creative team of Supernatural over summer. source
