The CW has cast its leads for their Supernatural spin-off Supernatural: Tribes.
Nathaniel Buzolic, who played Kol on The Vampire Diaries, will be play David Hayden, a shapeshifter from one of the mafia-esque ruling monster families of Chicago. David has been trying to live as a human, having turned his back on the monster life years ago.
The other lead role will be played by Lucien Laviscount, who previously was on Skins. Laviscount will play Ennis Roth, a police academy trainee whose fiancee is killed as a casualty of the monster war. That tragedy leads him to the truth about the monsters hidden in the shadows, and he becomes a monster-hunter himself, bent on revenge.
The show will focus on the various monster family lines that rule the dark supernatural world of Chicago. The families are being tracked by a new hunter who’s trying to stop them and rid Chicago of all things supernatural. David and Ennis will appear in the twentieth episode of Supernatural this season as a crossover pilot for the new series.
