The hit CW paranormal series hasn't been renewed for an eigth season just yet, but this change is a promising step forward. Supernatural adds a producer from Being Human
Things are being shaken up over at CW's veteran series Supernatural.
Sera Gamble, who has been a part of the hit series since it first aired
has opted to not renew her contract and will be stepping down after the
current season comes to an end and Deadline reports that Jeremy Carver
will be taking over as co-showrunner. Gamble has served as executive
producer alongside Robert Singer for the past two seasons. The duo took
over the show after Eric Kripke stepped down after the 5th season, when
his "story" was completed.
Carver, who has previously worked on the show has been working on SyFy's series Being Human with his wife Anna Fricke. The team wrote the series
which is based on the British series of the same name. The CW has yet
to make a formal announcement that the seires has been renewed for an
eighth season, but being that they have made this move, I'd suspect that
the announcement is imminent.
Supernatural follows the Winchester brothers (Jensen Ackles
& Jared Padalecki) as the rid the world of the demons, monsters and
ghosts that we only thought were stories. Along the way, they must deal
with elements and characters of biblical proportions. All set to a back
drop of killer classic rock.
This worries me a bit, to be honest. I'm a huge fan of the series,
but ever since the "demon/angel" storyline came to a close after season
five, the show seems to be going in an endless circle of nonsense.
While the show is still entertaining, it is missing the elements that
made the series so fun in the beginning. The humor and wittiness of the
characters is almost non-existent and I miss the days of just hunting. I
just hope the show doesn't delve into the realm of Smallville and just renew for the sake of renewing.
