Danielle Savre (Heroes) will portray shapeshifter Margo on The CW’s planted spin-off, TVLine has confirmed.
Also joining the project is Stephen Martines (Burn Notice, The Closer) as Detective Freddie Costa, a world-weary Chicago cop who serves as a mentor to Ennis (Episodes’ Lucien Laviscount) — aka the newbie hunter — but also is secretly on the payroll of one of the monster families.
Supernatural: Tribes will air its backdoor pilot in the 20th episode of this season and longtime SPN fans will notice more than a few similarities to the original series’ pilot. After the death of a loved one, the show’s protagonist, Ennis, is dragged into the world of hunting and monsters. It comes as no surprise that Sam is far more sympathetic to the wannabe cop than his brother when they run into Ennis working a case in Chicago. And while Tribes lacks Supernatural’s beloved sibling angst, Ennis has his fair share of Winchester-level daddy issues.
“According to sources, the majority of the pilot episode will film in Vancouver, which is where the original “Supernatural” is filmed, but shooting will also take place for three or four days in Chicago in late-March.”
New intel has surfaced about The CW’s Chicago-based planted Supernatural spin-off, Supernatural: Tribes, and it points to an epic battle involving five rival monster families and a vengeance-seeking hunter.
The CW announced Wednesday that long running drama “Supernatural” is getting a spinoff. And unlike the original, which follows brothers Dean and Sam Winchester as they hunt ghosts and monsters all over the country, the spinoff, “Supernatural: Tribes” will take place in Chicago.
Supernatural: Tribes will explore the clashing hunter and monster cultures of Chicago and hails from Supernatural’s writer Andrew Dabb, who will exec produce alongside Eric Kripke, Robert Singer, showrunner Jeremy Carver and McG. Singer will direct the Warner Bros. Television entry.
