The one thing that struck me [while] watching Season 7 was I felt like the show got a little bit buried under its mythology. It became a little hard to tell exactly what was going on at times. The longtime fans all deserve intricate plot, but it felt a little burdensome. Resetting our mythology was one idea that I tried to bring into [the show].
— Jeremy Carver's opinion on the seventh season [1]

Jeremy Carver is an American television writer and producer. He began work on Supernatural as a writer and story editor in Season 3. He later became a co-producer in Season 5, before leaving the series, to develop Syfy's Being Human. Beginning with Season 8, Carver returned to Supernatural as co-showrunner with Robert Singer after Sera Gamble departed to work on new projects. After Season 11, Carver stepped down from his role as show runner, leaving the seat to Andrew Dabb. However, Carver remained credited as an executive producer until the end of Season 13.

When I was saying we were dropping the mythology a little bit more sparingly this season, that was notwithstanding the fact that I think we really are building some foundation for a story line that can carry us on for at least a few more years. There's a note card in my office with 'the end of Season 10' right there, where I think this mythology can take us. I don't know if there's going to be a Season 10, but that's the one that keeps me getting up in the morning.

I guess the secret to the show is to keep it very grounded and very, very much based in the relationship between these two brothers. As long as we have that, we can take those shots at going sort of crazy in some of our episodes. But as long as we have this grounded relationship to return to; I feel that's the secret ingredient for all 8 seasons.

Look, at season 8, I'm not going to lie: it's certainly harder to come up with original stories. But when you have this base of these two brothers – as long as it always comes back to that, in one form or another – I think we're on safe ground.
