[Show creator] Eric Kripke originally would say, you have to have Google-able monsters or Google-able urban legends. We quickly realized we were gonna run out of good urban legends in a hurry.

Robert Singer is a writer, director and producer of the series Supernatural. Singer has been working on the show in a co-showrunner capacity since Season 1. He is often credited for a lot of Dean's one liners and is married to writer Eugenie Ross-Leming. In Season 11, Singer took a step back from the show, taking on an executive consultant position. With Season 12, Singer returned to executive producer/showrunner duties alongside Andrew Dabb.

Singer has also appeared on numerous Supernatural gag reels starting around Season 3. He has previously directed episodes of Midnight Caller, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, and Hack.

I don't think we've ever pandered to fans. Well, in general we, at least I don't, I don't pay much attention to what goes on online. When we're sitting in the writers' room and we're breaking stories, we rarely say "I wonder what the fans are gonna think of this." We just wanna tell the best story. We get feedback, their reaction to things? Pretty much, we're here with 200. So we have great respect for our fans. We want to keep it fresh for them. But we're not taking the directions from them.
