Supernatural Showrunner Change: Sera Gamble Steps Down, Jeremy Carver Returns
This is certainly an unexpected development. Deadline first reported that there's been a change-up concerning the Supernatural showrunner position. Sera Gamble, who has been with the series since the beginning, has been acting as co-showrunner since the series' creator, Eric Kripke stepped down. Gamble has co-spearheaded the show since the beginning of season 6, but she has now apparently decided to step down in order to focus on development.
Jeremy Carver will be taking her place, acting as the Supernatural co-showrunner alongside executive producer Robert Singer. Carver was a writer for the show in seasons 3 to 5, and acted as a co-producer for season 5. During his time on the show, Carver wrote several fan favorite episodes of Supernatural, including "A Very Supernatural Christmas", "Mystery Spot", "In the Beginning" and "Changing Channels". He also penned the 100th episode, "Point of No Return". Carver left the show to act as an executive producer on the Syfy channel's Being Human. He will remain as producer on that show after returning to Supernatural.
At present time, there's no word on whether Supernatural will return for an eighth season, but the show remains a consistently strong performer for both The CW and Warner Bros. With stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles signed on for an eighth season, there's every reason to believe that the show will return for another year.
Supernatural is currently on hiatus until April 20. For a preview of the return episode, browse and bookmark our Supernatural showpage.
