Supernatural Coming to an End

It’s making me really curious what The CW’s plan is, as it’s now letting go of a big chunk of its trademark shows: Arrow, Supernatural, iZombie, Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.  In any case, watching the cast get teary while announcing the news got me. Carry on, wayward sons!
