‘Supernatural’ Preview: Sam and Dean Spin Off the “Bloodlines” of Chicago Shapeshifters
Sam and Dean took a break from the angel madness of the current ‘Supernatural‘ season for the likes of “Alex Annie Alexis Ann” this past week, but next week will serve an even more thankless task as the Winchesters investigate the “Bloodlines” of Chicago, potentially setting up a spinoff for the fall. Meet our new shapeshifter heroes and villains in the full set of photos from ‘Supernatural: Bloodlines’!
Sam and Dean won’t exactly be playing second fiddle for next week’s “Bloodlines,” though the full set of photos understandably serve to set up the cast of characters and monster families that would populate the spinoff if The CW decided to follow through on a ‘Supernatural’ spinoff. Also, a hooded Freddy Krueger, why not!
For those not keeping track, ‘Bloodlines’ focuses on Ennis Roth (Lucien Laviscount), who puts his police academy training to use as a monster hunter after his fiancée is killed in the crossfire of the monster war dominating Chicago. Elsewhere, Melissa Roxburgh plays leading lady Violet Durant in the backdoor spinoff pilot, a member of the powerful werewolf pack who hides her true nature because of her forbidden love for family rival David (‘The Vampire Diaries‘ alum Nathan Buzulic).
Also cast in ‘Supernatural: Bloodlines’ is Danielle Savre as Margo, the acting head of the shapeshifter Hayden family, an ex-punk rocker-turned-corporate professional who feels threatened only by the return of her brother David. Stephen Martines will play Detective Freddie Costa, a world-weary Chicago cop who acts as a mentor to leading man Ennis, but is also on the payroll of one of the powerful monster families. Finally, ‘Pretty Little Liars’ star Sean Faris will take the role of Julian Durant, the “savagely handsome, strong, arrogant” twenty-something brother of Violet, and nemesis to Ennis.
We’ll reserve judgment on “Bloodlines” until we see the episode for ourselves, but in the meantime, preview the latest ‘Supernatural’ in the full set of photos below, and give us your early impression in the comments!
