Then in yesterday's premiere, Singer was listed in the credits at "Executive Consultant," the title that former showrunner Eric Kripke also held. Producer Jim Michaels confirmed the title change on his twitter today:
Bob Singer is now an Executive consultant @cw_spn He's still very involved and will Direct the usual # of episodes https://t.co/ANKM2ytYqf— Jim Michaels (@TheJimMichaels) October 8, 2015
The word is that Jeremy Carver now has the title of sole showrunner and will be the main guy in charge, but he'll have help. Phil Sgriccia will also be stepping in with some of the duties that Bob Singer used to take care of (aka the day to day production duties). Whatever the shift, after being with the show on season one, and many years in TV before that, I'm sure this is a welcome change for Singer. It is a crazy, hectic business most of the time. Enjoy the slower pace Mr. Singer, and we're glad you are still remaining close.
It is sad and inevitable but it just seems like little by little those that are involved with the show are starting to look at other avenues of retirement or employment. Definitely feels like the beginning of the end of the show now.
I don't know what Bob Singers contribution to the show has been but I am guessing without his hard work and dedication the show doesn't go 11 years. So thank you Mr. Singer. Thank you for helping make this show possible.
Is Robert's wife going to continue writing for the show or Moving back to the states? She can absolutely do both.
