by at . Comments

The CW has cast its final series regular for the Supernatural spinoff, while also renaming the planned project.

Now known as Supernatural: Bloodlines, the drama will still be centered in Chicago and based around a pair of monster families that run the underbelly of the Windy City.

And Melissa Roxburgh will play a major role.

The actress (who actually appeared on the Supernatural Season 7 episode "Tim After Time") will portray Violet Durant, a member of a strong werewolf pack who keeps her true nature a secret because of her forbidden love for family rival David (played Nathaniel Bozulic), a shapeshifter.

Other Supernatural: Bloodlines regulars will include:

  • Danielle Savre as shapeshifter Margo Hayden.
  • Sean Faris as a werewolf Julian Durant.
  • Lucien Laviscount as police academy trainee/newly-minted Hunter Ennis Roth.
  • Stephen Martines as a veteran Chicago PD Detective Freddie Costa.

These characters will appear on an upcoming Supernatural Season 9 episode that will serve as the spinoff's backdoor pilot.

Supernatural Quotes

You know why God cast me down? Because I loved him. More than anything. And then God created... you. The little... hairless apes. And then He asked all of us to bow down before you, to love you more than Him. And I said, "Father... I can't." I said, "These human beings are flawed, murderous." And for that... God had Michael cast me into Hell. Now, tell me... does the punishment fit the crime? Especially when I was right? Look at what six billion of you have done to this thing, and how many of you blame me for it?
