SUPERNATURAL’s longevity (coming up on 12 seasons in the fall of 2016!) means that the show has gone through a few changes over the years. While stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki have been there since the pilot episode, the writing staff has changed a bit over the years.
Warner Bros. has confirmed that current co-showrunner, Jeremy Carver, is stepping down. Carver’s new series, FREQUENCY, was recently picked up to series by The CW, which accounts for the change. He joined SUPERNATURAL in season 3 and then left to run Syfy’s BEING HUMAN, only to return in season 8 when Sera Gamble (who succeeded the show’s creator Eric Kripke as executive producer) departed.
In season 12, Andrew Dabb, who has been a writer on the show since season 4, will be taking over the reigns and will act as co-showrunner along with Robert Singer, who has been with the series since season 1.
Dabb penned the upcoming SUPERNATURAL season finale, which will air on May 25 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
