The producers of Supernatural are working on a spinoff, it was revealed today at Comic-Con.

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.

Reportedly, the show will introduce a new character who will anchor the proposed spinoff.

Details are slim, but the new series will have "a more urban feel" than Supernatural.

With existing cast members from TVD and some new faces, the CW successfully launched a "backdoor pilot" of The Originals during a late-season episode of The Vampire Diaries in April.

Supernatural, a staple of the network since 2005, returns Tuesday, October 15.

It's a formula that the network is very familiar with at this point.

The CW will launch a Vampire Diaries spinoff, The Originals, having aired its "backdoor pilot" during an episode of The Vampire Diaries Season 4 this spring.

Supernatural, an underrated staple of the network's lineup starring Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles since 2005, kicks off its ninth season this fall.
