Check out the showdown in the season 11 finale before SPN moves to Thursdays in the Fall with a new showrunner.
It’s been a busy week for the SPN family behind the scenes. Original creator Eric Kripke had his new NBC time travel drama Timeless ordered for next season while current SPN showrunner Jeremy Carver’s new series, Frequency, was picked up by the CW.
The second bit of news will affect Supernatural as it means Carver is leaving the show to run his new drama. In his place, long-time producer and director Robert Singer will serve as co-showrunner with writer/producer Andrew Dabb.
But don’t worry. Dabb has been a writer on the show since season 4 and he’s actually written more episodes of the series than anyone else, including Eric Kripke. As for transitions, he wrote the season 11 finale, which will be his 32nd episode as a writer or co-writer.
Creator Eric Kripke was the showrunner for the first five seasons, then Sera Gamble took over for seasons 6 and 7. Then Jeremy Carver ran the show for the past four seasons.
Everyone is joining forces to fight Amara. And I mean everyone, with Sam, Dean, Chuck, Crowley, Rowena and Lucifer. That’s the unholiest of alliances.

In the world of sci-fi/fantasy writing, few awards are as prestigious as the Hugo Award, given out starting in 1953 and named after the founder of the Amazing Stories magazine. And this year, Supernatural has been nominated for the first time ever in the Short-Form Dramatic category (for TV episodes).
The show was nominated for the recent “Just My Imagination” episode, in which Sam reconnects with his childhood imaginary friend. The nominees are the director, Richard Speight, Jr. (who played Gabriel, aka the Trickster) and writer Jenny Klein, who started as a writers’ assistant in season 3 and worked her way up to story editor and eventually a writer.
The episode is nominated against four other sci-fi/fantasy TV episodes:
“Headache” from Grimm
“AAKA Smile” from Jessica Jones (the season 1 finale)
“Heaven Sent” from Doctor Who
“The Cutie Map” from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
Yes, the Winchesters are competing against fairy tales, a super hero, a Time Lord and cartoon horses.
The ceremony for winners will be held Saturday, August 20.
Check out these photos from the May 4 episode in which Sam and Dean try to stop another outbreak of Amara’s Black Vein Virus from the season premiere. Also, as the title suggests, Chuck is back!
