Season 14 saw Supernatural reach its 300th episode with the thirteenth episode "Lebanon" - an incredible and rare achievement in television. It is the longest running sci-fi/fantasy series, and is in the top ten longest running scripted dramas on America television of all time.

The 300th episode aired on 7th February, 2019 and was written by Andrew Dabb and Meredith Glynn and directed by Bob Singer. At Comic-Con 2018, Showrunner Andrew Dabb said of the episode's story:

“The idea kind of floating around right now is Sam and Dean, for years, have lived in the bunker, [which] is in a place called Lebanon, Kansas, which is a real town, a very small town. (But) we’ve never actually seen Lebanon, Kansas, on the show. We’ve never actually seen what these people in this town think of these two guys who drive this muscle car through. The dry cleaner [must think], ‘They have a lot of blood on their clothes. What’s going on there?' So it becomes: How do these people view Sam and Dean — with Sam and Dean’s story in there, too. “We think it could be a real love letter to the show, in what we hope is going to be a very heartwarming way — with murder. Heartwarming with murder.”

It was hinted that some old characters would return. On 14th December 2018, it was confirmed that Jeffrey Dean Morgan would return in the role of John Winchester.

Official Party

Cast and crew from Vancouver were joined by the producers, writers and post-production staff from Los Angeles for a party at The Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver on Friday the 16th of November.

The official cake.
  • There was a cake based on the title card for season 13. At 30 inches tall at its highest point and weighing in at 220lbs, the cake was created by Jeffry Kahle, Executive Pastry Chef, The Fairmont Pacific Rim.
  • The Winchester initials (SW and DW) were a design element through the event featuring on the invitations, the red carpet backdrop and tables at the event. We saw the young Winchesters carve their initials in the Impala in 5.22 Swan Song, and later on a table in the Men of Letters Bunker in 12.18 The Memory Remains.
  • The crew band The Impalas played, with singers including EPs Bob Singer and Jim Michaels as well as Jensen and Dave Riopel. Videos of Jensen and the band performing here, here and here.

I was lucky enough to work on this show, which led me to meet my husband, my BFF @danneelackles512, and brought the blessing of 3 beautiful children into my life. This show is so much more meaningful than what’s on our TV screens. Thank you so much for watching, supporting, and following. Thank you to so so many (you too, Phil Sigricia, for casting me after Wildfire). This has been a wild ride and I cannot wait to see where else it takes us all. #SPNfamily

The love shared between each and every cast and crew member(some of whom have been there since day one)was positively overwhelming to behold. I am honored to be a part of this Supernatural Family. 🖤🖤🖤🖤Thank you #SPNFAMILY #SPN300EPISODEPARTY #lovemyman

In honor of Supernatural reaching 300 episodes, one of the stages at the Canadian Motion Picture Park was named "The Supernatural Stages."

The BC Minister for Tourism, Arts & Culture, Lisa Beare said:

"Congratulations to the cast and crew of Supernatural on their 300th episode. I was so excited to meet Jared Padaleckli, Jensen Ackles and so many others involved in the show at the unveiling of the plaque commemorating the occasion at the Canadian Motion Picture Park today. BC is currently ranked as the third largest film and television production centre in North America. Our government is proud to support our province’s motion picture industry and the great work being created here. For 14 years Supernatural has played a huge role in this industry. The show has been shot at locations all over BC, bringing hundreds of millions of direct production expenditure to our province over the years. This has resulted in thousands of jobs for British Columbians."
