During the hiatus between Seasons 10 and 11, "Supernatural" fans will be left with empty Tuesday nights and a Winchester-sized hole in their hearts. So turn on some "Carry On My Wayward Son" to get you in the right mindset – here are four reasons why the "SPNFamily" needs a new show to ease the pain of the absence, albeit a short one, of one of the CW's best.

4. The More Monster Hunting, The Better

For a few seasons now, the writers have been working to flesh out the plotline and create much more of a story. A spinoff that went back to the heart of hunting, though, would likely draw in a lot of new viewers – and keep current fans happy. Luring in wraiths and slaying rugarus will never get old.

3. A Plethora Of Potential Plotlines

Let’s see more of Charlie and her adventures since she wandered off into Oz. Or how about a whole show devoted to Bobby's time in the afterlife? And no one could resist a series following Cas and his adorable angelic awkwardness. As cliché as it may sound, the possibilities are truly endless when it comes to the amount of characters to build a storyline around.

2. "The Originals" Gives Us Hope

Sure, there’s always the potential for this spinoff to royally flop, and some may believe "Supernatural" may be better left untouched, but the CW writers have certainly proven their ability with the “Vampire Diaries” spinoff that is now on its second season. With the new show in the hands of the CW, the "Supernatural" spinoff may be as good as the original.

1. Sam & Dean – Enough Said

The chemistry between Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles has carried the show through over 200 episodes. And though J2 confirmed Season 11 of the beloved series, fans would certainly not object to a few more episodes featuring their favorite hell-hunting duo, even if only for a cameo or two.

But one thing's for sure, no show will ever be better.

Note: An earlier version of this post mistakenly stated that Season 10 was the conclusion of the series, but the show has in fact been picked up for at least one more season.
