Penikett’s Ezekiel is “a dignified warrior angel injured in the Fall” that took place at the close of last May’s finale, says executive producer Jeremy Carver.

He will first appear in the Season 9 premiere, airing on the show’s new night, Tuesday, Oct. 8 at 9/8c.

At Comic-Con last month, Carver revealed that “a world full of fallen angels is pretty much a free-for-all.”

“We’re going to see it’s not one unified body,” he added. “We’ve got lots of angels out there with lots of different agendas. Many are feelings lost and vengeful. A world of fallen angels is a dirty, bloody, scary and, in some ways, a very human world.”

Penikett’s other TV credits include Continuum, Castle and fellow CW series Arrow.

    Well that’s one way to keep me watching a season that honestly hasn’t much appealed to me yet based on the spoilers that are out.

    • Martine says:

      When is Supernatural going to be cancelled? It never gets more then a million viewers, and even the CW can do better.

  2. Dizzle says:

    I have not watched Supernatural since the end of season 4, but suddenly I feel the need to start again….

  3. Daisy says:

    Best news all day.

  4. Oh wow, I feel like I can’t breath. This is so exciting!

  5. Marie says:

    I love him but ughhh, so not looking forward to another season full of whiny angels. They should have dropped this plotline after S5 concluded.

  6. liz says:

    If there’s anyone that can play an angel its him. He’s so beautiful….and got the talent to match.

  7. Bella says:

    Wow. I wasn’t excited about this angel storyline until I saw this news! Now I’m interested.

  8. Cort says:

    Tahmoh! Can’t wait. Loved him as Helo Agathon.

  9. Carrie says:

    Good casting!

  10. Chris says:

    I’m really excited. I love him,

  11. SonOfCoul says:

    Better stock up on your Angel blades, Winchesters.

  12. Sunshine says:

    I’ll definitely be tuning in now… If we ever get the CW back on Brighthouse cable that is… otherwise guess I’ll watch online.
    Loved him on BSG & Dollhouse!!

  13. Nichole says:

    Dangit. Now I may have to start watching this show again.

  14. Drew says:

    Question… are these host bodies? What about the angels who haven’t taken a host body (like Cas took Jimmy)?

    Random question, I know.

  15. Katie_Mead says:

    Nice! I love me some Tahmoh – except in Continuum, where he doesn’t seem to do much but stand around looking corrupt – so I hope he’s up to his normal standards in Supernatural.

  16. Tricia says:

    THEY ARE GOING TO BREAK MY TV WITH ALL THE HANDSOME.

  17. Brooke says:

    NICE!!! That’s great casting news!

  18. Kristina says:

    Yay! Haven’t seem him much since Dollhouse, looking forward to having him back on my TV!

  19. Marisa says:

    Sounds like great casting! Loved him in Dollhouse!

  20. Sandra says:

    Awsome news, really excited for this new character and actor playing him.

  21. Alan says:

    well its official, tahmoh penikett is on a mission to appear in every show currently on air, its getting to the stage where i cant turn on my tv without seeing him.

    • Lisa Ray says:

      I thought it was pretty cool when he played duke crocker’s dad on haven. If hid dad shoes up again in the show I hope he will reprise the role.
