The CW’s planted Supernatural spin-off pilot has cast its final series regular — and found a new name, to boot.
Airing April 29 as an episode of the long-running CW series, Supernatural: Bloodlines (as it is now known) portends to be a sweeping drama about the mafia-esque monster families that, unknowingly to humans, “run” the underbelly of Chicago and who are being tracked by a newly minted Hunter.
TVLine has learned that Melissa Roxburgh has landed the final series regular role of Violet Durant, a member of a powerful werewolf pack who hides her true nature because of her forbidden love for family rival David (The Originals‘ Nathaniel Bozulic), a shapeshifter.
Bloodlines‘ other series regulars are Danielle Savre (Heroes) as shapeshifter Margo Hayden, Sean Faris (Pretty Little Liars) as werewolf Julian Durant, Lucien Laviscount (Episodes, Skins) as police academy trainee/newly-minted Hunter Ennis Roth and Stephen Martines (Burn Notice) as world-weary Chicago PD Detective Freddie Costa.
Roxburgh previously has appeared on The CW’s Arrow (as a gal pal of Thea’s) and in the Season 7 Supernatural episode “Time After Time.”
