I also posted the news in the Carver thread, but maybe that wasn't the right place to put it.
Anyway, yeah, it's unsurprising, but does open up a possibility for SPN. Though normally once these people move on, they move on. However - and someone correct me if I'm wrong - when I was still paying attention to things like credits, or episodes in general, I always noticed that Carver was still listed in the end credits as an exec producer, or producer, one of those. Is that still true? I always thought that was a little odd, seeing as he was showrunning Frequency, and was probably unofficially gone most of season 11 too. But certainly for season 12 he shouldn't have still been attached to the show, but he was, or is if anyone here recalls the latest credits.
That made me think that Carver had a deal with the network or studio or both for the chance to return to the show if the CW didn't go forward with Frequency. And, too, maybe that's why Dabb was listed as second under Singer instead of being the primary showrunner.

Yeah, I saw it after I posted this thread here. It's a kind of spoiler, but not so much that it needs to be removed from the other thread.
Carver is an odd case. There is, in fact, a title for former EPs who were head writers and have left the show - Executive Consultant. Kripke, for example, is listed as an EC. And there are other production-side Executive Producers on this show who have not been actually running the show in the story sense. For example, McG was an EP for quite a while, but never actually did much (if anything) with the show. Phil Sgriccia has been an EP for a long time, but his influence has been on the production side and directing.
But Executive Producers who were also writers were showrunners or at least running the writers room. It looks as though this season, Dabb has been the writer showrunner, while the Nepotism Duo have been running the writers room - with predictably horrible results.
These people are always listed as ECs after they leave, except for Carver, who has spent most of the season listed in the opening credits as an EP, still. And he is also the only writer to leave and then come back years later.
I really don't know what that says about his current status or whether he could come back, but I'm hopeful that his excellent record with the show's ratings would encourage the network to try to lure him back.
thesnowleopard: The season finale was better than last season's finale. Hell, the whole season was better than last season. Some episodes were worth watching. Others were kinda messy.

onali: Since I haven't been watching the show I don't know how some (former) dead characters have returned (in what form) but I have to say that I don't miss the show at all. Is it still worth watching or not?

onali: It's been a long time since I've been here. Only watched the Season premiere then .... nothing. Every now and again I watched what you were rating the episodes and yes I've seen some spoilers (can some people just please stay dead??!!!!!) (1)

SkeksisGirl: I'm not, and I think I'm gonna stop working SPN conventions. BTW, welcome!

gopacgo12: Ok, so is anyone here going to the Las Vegas 2018 Supernatural convention, because if so I will see you there, but i'd just like to talk to some others

thesnowleopard: I have to wait until tomorrow night to "live recap." I don't currently have live TV, just streaming.

paforrest: Excited is not what I'm feeling. But I've set the dvr, will live watch Gotham & Will & Grace, then The Good Place off the dvr. Maybe tomorrow I'll FF through SPN if, and only IF, I hear there's any good Dean.

onali: So ... who is excited for tomorrow? I still have to re-watch the last couple of episodes, but I am lacking the enthousiasm.

SkeksisGirl: Just FYI guys, Luxshine is going to be in Florida come mid October. She and I are going to be vending as artists at Spooky Empire. So much hugs and puppies to her when she's here.

luxshine: Thank guys. There was ANOTHER earthquake here today, but this time I didn´t even feel it. Just dealing with a bit of PTSD. So if you can send fluffy things and cute Jensen or Misha pics my way, I´ll appreciate it.

onali: Glad you all are ok over there.
Sept 22, 2017 19:31:28 GMT -5
paforrest: So glad you're okay, luxshine! Absolutely heartbreaking situation. And I'm terrified and devastated for Puerto Rico and the other islands impacted by Maria. Mother Earth is very pissed off at us.
Sept 20, 2017 7:25:07 GMT -5
luxshine: New Earthquake here in Mexico. Now... a bit more savage than last week's. But I'm ok!
Sept 19, 2017 20:37:51 GMT -5
SkeksisGirl: And now we may have Maria...
Sept 19, 2017 13:10:20 GMT -5
luxshine: I'm glad people from Florida are ok! We had a bit of an earthquake in Mexico, but other than three terrified kitties, I'm ok.

paforrest: Belatedly checking in from Florida. My roof held and no trees fell on the house, miraculously enough. Spent two days cleaning up debris in the yard, but we fared better than most, for which I'm grateful. But I feel for so many that are suffering.

SkeksisGirl: Oh, the new owners for Megacon are just turning it into a meat grinder. They've screwed over a lot of people.
May 27, 2017 16:59:57 GMT -5
paforrest: Yeah, I've been to a few Megacons in the past - they can be a cluster. But I was talking about how years ago I'd have been thrilled if a Creation SPN con finally came here. Now it is and I don't care and can't justify the money. Changing times.
