What I will say is... whether I have been privileged to work for Eric Kripke, Sera Gamble or Jeremy Carver, they all had really specific visions for the show. Visions that I thought took the show in their own way. You know I think if you look at all their tenors on the show, they're all Supernatural but they feel a little bit different and I think coming and sitting in that chair and me being able to dictate things a little bit more I'm able to play up a sort of Supernatural that I really enjoy.
— Andrew Dabb's view of now being the showrunner [1]

Andrew Dabb is a co-executive producer and writer for the series Supernatural. He started writing along with Daniel Loflin as a writing team/supervising producer who joined Supernatural in Season 4. In Season 8, Dabb and Loflin began writing episodes separately. Beginning with Season 12, Dabb took over as co-showrunner with Robert Singer, following the departure of Jeremy Carver.

I get that people may not have been as into that as we were, they're certainly fair, but I do believe that, you know, sometimes you try things and you hope they work and that one... yeah. It didn't necessarily work for everyone, I'm certainly aware of that, but at the same time if you start doing things only you know that people are going to like, and people are like "Oh my God I love it," that limits you storytelling wise. At this point in the show, those stories are easy to do. It's easy to tick three boxes and know on Twitter the fans are going to go crazy for it. It just is. We all know what those three boxes are but I think the question is, if those are only the types of stories you're telling and those are only the type of episodes you're telling, then are you really allowing the show to grow creatively? It becomes a nostalgia cycle. You know what I mean? And we've certainly been on 12 years. We have our share of nostalgia and certainly have gone to that well but if that's all you're going for, that's all you're doing is repeating, then it becomes a real problem and it puts a clock on things. I think we have with the guys and these relationships we have places to go that are really interesting, I don't ever want to get to the point where I'm like, "We're not going to do this because Twitter's not going to like it." I just don't think that's a good way ever to run a story, or run a show, and I also think truth of the matter is, the thing people like the most is that they want it but they didn't know they wanted it.

I don't think that's going to be our end. I think we're going to keep going. I think there are more stories to tell. 300 is an awesome, awesome benchmark — very, very few shows get there; it's like us and Gunsmoke — but I don't think that's our ending point.
