Supernatural Creator Eric Kripke Stepping Down as Showrunner for Season 6
" Even though a popular CW series was given a sixth season yesterday, it seems that the show will be going through some changes in their ranks. Entertainment Weekly's Ausiello Files is reporting that Supernatural series creator and showrunner Eric Kripke will be stepping down from his showrunner post for the show's sixth season.
The site reports that executive producer Sera Gamble, who has been a part of the show from day one, will replace Kripke and his co-showrunner Robert Singer as the showrunner and will handle the day-to-day affairs of the series. However, unlike most instances when a showrunner steps down, Kripke and Singer will still have an active voice in the series.
"Eric and Bob will be working very closely with Sera," says the source. "They are not abandoning the show."
It was said that one reason that Kripke stepped down was that he was finishing up a deal with Warner Bros. Television that could have him developing a brand new series. CLICK HERE for the entire article.
