The Winchesters started looking for a new home after The CW gave it a boot last month, but it wasn’t meant to be. The Supernatural spin-off has been officially canceled after a single season after failing to get a second season on another network or streaming service.

The Winchesters team looked into several opportunities after The CW canceled the show: from Supernatural’s longtime streaming home Netflix to Chaos Machine Productions’ current partners at Amazon. None of these deals came true, and The Winchesters’ search for a new home officially came to an end.

Supernatural star Jensen Ackles, who served as the narrator and executive producer of The Winchesters, was at the forefront of keeping the show alive and held onto hope that this story could go on.

“We were talking not only about story and where we wanted to take our cast, we were talking about who we were going to bring back from the mothership… Hopefully, we get to execute that. I just think that there’s a way to keep this alive and it would be a shame to let that go,” he previously told Entertainment Weekly.

The Winchesters isn’t the only victim of The CW’s cancelation streak this year. Walker: Independence and Kung Fu were both canceled just last month.
