E4 bags Supernatural after Sky Living drop

UK digital channel E4 has acquired rights to US demon hunter drama Supernatural after pay TV channel Sky Living decided to drop it from its schedule.

E4 has closed a deal with Warner Bros. International Television Distribution that will see the Wonderland Sound and Vision and Warner Bros. Television-produced show launch in early 2015.

Paycaster Sky confirmed it would not renew rights to the show earlier this year, leaving season nine without a UK broadcast home.

The Eric Kripke-created series, which goes out on The CW in the US and in syndication on TNT, follows a pair of brothers battling demons in a world inhabited by thousands of supernatural beings.
