The CW has cast the two leads in Supernatural: Tribes, its planned Supernatural spinoff, and one of the main roles belongs to Nathaniel Buzolic, best known to Vampire Diaries fans as a deceased member of The Originals.
The actor will portray David Hayden, a shapeshifter from one of Chicago's ruling monster families. He's living as a human when we meet him, having given up the supernatural life years prior.
Executive producer Bob Singer said during the annual event in San Diego that a backdoor pilot is being developed for the 20th episode of Supernatural Season 9, which kicks off this fall.
Details are slim, but the new series will have "a more urban feel" than Supernatural.
