Sabrina Cotugno was promoted to a director position for Season 4, a similar role to what Giancarlo Volpe had up to the start of production on Season 3.
Sabrina will be one of a team of several directors whose role is to oversee, direct and coordinate storyboarders and the animation process.
She will not be writing the show, anymore than she did when she was a storyboarder on Season 2 (and 3).
She and the show's other directors are constrained by the show's actual writers who work out the broad strokes of the story and the necessary specific details that must be shown, and are completely subordinate to the show's Creative Directors, including and especially Nefcy herself.
Sabrina was promoted because she does good work on the show, her fucktarded personal politics and diarrhea of the mouth on tumblr aside.
Daron Nefcy is not Rebecca Sugar, this show has been her baby for a decade and she's not going to let anybody run away with it.
Disney (XD) is certainly not Cartoon Network, they have total confidence in Nefcy and have given her a lot of freedom with the show but their content standards are still tight-laced.
