Tribes is being described as a sweeping drama about the various mafia-esque monster families that unknowingly-to-humans “run” the underbelly of Chicago and who are being tracked by a newly-minted Hunter who’s trying to stop them and rid Chicago of anything or anyone supernatural.

Faris will star as Julian Durant, the son of a wealthy family of lycanthropes who has no love for the shapeshifting Hayden clan.

He joins the recently cast Nathaniel Buzolic (The Originals), as shapeshifter David Hayden, and Lucien Laviscount (Episodes, Skins), who will portray Ennis Roth, a resolute police academy trainee whose fiancée is killed in the crossfire of the monster war. The tragedy leads him to the truth about what lurks in the shadows and to become a monster-hunter himself.

The trio will appear in this season’s 20th episode of Supernatural — aka Tribes’ de-facto pilot — airing April 29.

No stranger to the supernatural, Faris played jock-turned-vampire Ben on Season 1 of The Vampire Diaries. He also starred on Reunion and Life As We Know It.

  • Dammit, and here I was planning to stay as far away from Tribes as possible, thinking it’ll never be anything like the epicness of Supernatural anyway but then they go ahead and land a cast like Buzolic, Laviscount and now Faris. Guess I’ll be watching anyway, then.

  • These pieces symbolize the people and passions in your life
    that influence the decisions you make. The beauty of online dating is that
    you have greater control over the pace at which things develop as a face to face meeting doesn’t usually
    occur for some time. For all intents and purposes you need to view
    this is a completely new and separate relationship.
    0 Social Media can be used to meet friends, singles and even those interested in adult sexual relationships.

    These were statements that were designed to impress me, the recipient, how Holy he was
    and how God is such a big part of his life, as was his faith.
