Just thought i’d post this as i know we get quite a few Supernatural fans on the site.
Don’t go looking on ITV2 for the fifth season of Supernatural, cause you won’t find it. Virgin Media have poached the rights and are moving the show to its Living TV channel. Not only to have they got the rights to season 5 of Supernatural, but also the rights to air seasons 1 to 4 from August 1st. The also have first refusal on Supernatural season 6 (assuming it’s picked up).
So, good news for Virgin and Sky customers… Bad news if you’ve been watching Freeview… Still, Living is probably a good fit for Supernatural, given it’s UK TVs home of the paranormal.
“Living’s enthusiasm to add Supernatural to its schedule convinced us that this would be a good move. Being able to schedule both the new episodes and the prior seasons already telecast simultaneously will allow Living to make the relaunch of the series in the UK a big event for its viewing audience.” said Jeffrey Schlesinger, Pres of WB International Television.
Personally, I’m rather looking forward to the switch, as I missed the whole Supernatural thing first time round, so I’m currently watching season 1 on DVD from Lovefilm. It’ll be handy to be able to Sky+ a bunch of the episodes to catch up instead!
