Will there be a Season 16 of Supernatural?
Unfortunately, no. The series has been canceled after the fifteenth season. Season 15 was the final season and there won’t be the next season in the series. In an interview with TVLine, prior to the show’s tenth season, Misha Collins, said, “I’m stunned that the show is going as long as it is, not because I ever thought that it should be canceled or wouldn’t survive, but I joined in season four and I thought … ‘Well, this is probably somewhere near the end of the show.'” Collins then added, “Originally, five was going to be the end of it.”
As of now, there are no plans for Supernatural Season 16. However, there may be a spinoff of the series or we could even see a young Winchesters spinoff.

What could have been the plot of Supernatural Season 16?
At the end of Season 15, Dean is killed on a hunt and makes his brother, Sam promise not to bring him back ever. As the story progresses, we see a flash-forward that reveals that Sam, who lived with a son of his own, becomes an old man, and finally, dies a peaceful death. In heaven, the two brothers are reunited and the season ends with Sam and Deam hugging. The finale gave a happy ending to the characters. So, there isn’t much to tell in the next season.
But there are still some options for the series to continue. The story can center on Sam’s son and how he tries to live up to Sam’s legacy. or there can be a spinoff too that shows the world of demons, angels, and monsters. But for now, you can occupy yourselves by rewatching the previous seasons of Supernatural.
