Per Deadline's Nellie Andreeva, Sera Gamble, who was running the last two seasons of The CW's "Supernatural" together with exec producer Robert Singer after taking over from creator Eric Kripke back in 2009, has decided to step down from her post, and not renew her contract for next season.
Jeremy Carver, who was an exec producer of the 2009-2010 season, and subsequently has left to co-run Syfy's US remake of British Series "Being Human" together with his wife Anna Fricke, has signed on to return to "Supernatural" as co-showrunner, who will now be Robert Singer's new partner in the day-to-day business of fleshing out the show.
While some might say this is good news based on the fact that they didn't agree with Sera Gamble on how she steered the veteran horror drama during her stint as co-showrunner, the switch is, maybe even more importantly, very good news on the renewal front. While the show still hasn't received an order for an eighth season, this move is a huge vote of confidence. The CW does OK business with the show on Fridays, and therefore "Supernatural" is fully expected to return in the fall.
