Ausiello: Supernatural’s Eric Kripke Won’t Be Showrunner for Season 6
According to Michael Ausiello, Supernatural creator and showrunner Eric Kripke will be stepping down as the day-to-day showrunner for the recently announced sixth season of the series. Sera Gamble who has been with the show since its first season is in line to succeed him. But Ausiello’s sources tell him that Kripke will be back in some role and that both he and co-showrunner Robert Singer will continue to be very hands on executive producers.
Ausiello says that Kripke is negotiating a new deal with Warner Bros that will feature a development deal.
