Sad news to report for all you Supernatural fans.
A statement from Eric Kripke, fellow Supernatural creator and executive producer:
This is a huge blow to television fans everywhere. He was also involved in the X-Files as an executive producer and director — directing 50 episodes of the X-Files before the series bowed.
Kim, you’ll be missed. I hope you find the choir of angels waiting and not the war of heaven and hell shown in Supernatural!
