The Winchesters has been canceled after just one season, but it’s being shopped around. Could HBO Max step in to save the day?
If there was one network we could usually rely on renewing shows, it was The CW. Since Nexstar took over, that has changed considerably. Nexstar made it clear that the old model didn’t work financially, so things are changing. Shows are getting canceled, and that includes the Supernatural prequel spin-off, The Winchesters.
Despite the cancellation, fans are not giving up. The show is being shopped around, and now all eyes are on which network could step in to save it. Out of all of them, HBO Max seems to make the most sense.
Could The Winchesters be saved by HBO Max?
The series is already streaming on HBO Max. This puts it as a good place to be picked up. After all, WarnerMedia can see how it’s doing. The only issue with this is that it only relies on U.S. ratings as HBO Max isn’t internationally. In Canada, all HBO Max content goes to Crave, but it will be different for other countries.
Keeping it on the platform it’s already on does make sense. There is also an audience for fantasy shows. Of course, most fantasy on the network is high fantasy, which the Supernatural prequel is not, but it catches the attention of those viewers.
