According to a Hollywood Reporter bulletin, FlashForward needs a new showrunner as co-creator David Goyer is stepping down. The report diplomatically states that Goyer will still be "involved" but also stated that he will be focusing on directing and feature films.
The report quotes Goyer as saying "As my feature projects have started ramping up again, I felt I was being pulled in too many directions."
Goyer is the second showrunner for the new show, which is scheduled to return from hiatus in mid-March. Showrunners are responsible for day to day operations of the show, making it an essential role. Marc Guggenheim was the initial showrunner after the pilot, and he was replaced by Goyer after some creative conflicts. There is no replacement announcement yet, although Goyer also said "I'm proud of the show and excited about the relaunch. It's in great hands."
What this means for FlashForward is unclear. It's remaining 14 episodes will begin airing after the Olympics starting March 18th, with a two hour episode.
