The CW has just announced that they are renewing Supernatural for another season. The news was just announced in a press release, also mentioning the renewal for two other CW shows, Arrow and The Vampire Diaries. The press release had this to say about Supernatural:

We said last year that one of our goals was to establish building blocks to grow on, and now with our new hit ARROW and fan favorite SUPERNATURAL on Wednesday night, and the continued success of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES on Thursday, we’ve been able to do that,” said [Mark Pedowitz, President of The CW]. “Not only do ARROW, SUPERNATURAL, and THE VAMPIRE DIARIES perform well on-air, they’re also extremely successful for us both digitally and socially. I’m thrilled to have all three shows returning to our schedule next season.

…The Winchester brothers of SUPERNATURAL will continue to fight the forces of evil for a ninth season. Since being paired with ARROW on Wednesday this year, SUPERNATURAL has seen a dramatic uptick in its ratings from last season, rising 15% among total viewers, 10% in adults 18-34 and 18% in adults 18-49.

Despite being in its eighth season, Supernatural has gained viewers, showing that it is still going strong. Who knows, a tenth season may even be possible if this keeps up!
