UPDATE: It is Ben Acker and Ben Blacker leaving, thankfully Ben Edlund is still staying. Thank you all for all your comments, and for those of you who chose to berate me for being incorrect instead of sharing the news that it thankfully wasn’t Mr. Edlund as well, cheers to you too!
Writers Ben Acker and Ben Blacker are leaving Supernatural.
Writer and show runner Sera Gamble announced in April that she would be stepping down, and that long time writer Jeremy Carver would be taking over as show runner.
This means big things and big changes for Supernatural. Social media reactions range from relief to absolute panic. The majority of those asked are excited for the new things to come, believing that some new ideas were needed to further the show’s storyline, and thus its longevity.
Supernatural Season 8 premier airs October 2012. The late start allows for less mid-season hiatus in all the CW shows, thus having fewer breaks in between episodes.
