After Stephen Amell mentioned doing a crossover last year, fans have been waiting on pins and needles for Supernatural and Arrow to unite on the small screens. Although Amell loved the idea of Oliver Queen teaming up with Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester, Supernatural executive producer Andrew Dabb recently shut down the idea of a crossover.
In a recent media interview, Dabb told fans that crossing genres does not work for a show like Supernatural. While fans would love to see Oliver meet Sam and Dean, Dabb pretty much shut down the idea that a crossover between Supernatural and Arrow would ever happen (despite his show “mixing genres” when it crossed over with Scooby-Doo).

“Mixing genres in crossovers doesn’t work that well, so, like, a crossover with Arrow is not going to work out for us,” Dabb explained.
Amell has made it pretty clear that he’s a huge fan of Supernatural, so it isn’t surprising that he wants to see the shows join forces at some point. It sadly doesn’t sound like that will happen anytime soon, but you never know what the future holds. Surely the writers can think of some way to bring the two worlds together?
It’s too bad that Sam and Dean won’t make their way to Star City anytime soon, but that does not mean a crossover of some kind is off the table for Supernatural.
In fact, Misha Collins recently teased that producers are working on another crossover episode in the upcoming season. The actor wouldn’t reveal any details about the crossover, but he did reveal that Dabb tried to get the rights for some pretty high-profile shows.

In addition to the crossover news, Dabb recently revealed that fans will get to see more of the characters from Wayward Sisters, despite the series not being approved to move forward. The cast of the failed spin-off will appear on Supernatural at some point in Season 14, which means we might get some closure on a few storylines that were started in the pilot of Wayward Sisters.
Dabb didn’t reveal too much about the cameos, but the characters will be involved with the things Michael is researching and will appear in several episodes.
Season 14 of Supernatural premieres Oct. 11 on The CW. Arrow, meanwhile, is gearing up for the premiere of its 7th season, which will air Oct. 15.
