The CW has confirmed that the upcoming Supernatural off-shoot series is officially happening, and will debut as a backdoor pilot later this spring during the current ninth season of the long-running hit show. We're not surprised! Supernatural stars Jared Padalecki (Sam Winchester) and Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester) have kept fans coming back for so long that it was only a matter of time before we got something more out of that universe.
What's a backdoor pilot? The Vampire Diaries fans will be familiar with the concept; The Originals pilot aired as an episode of the show. So if you're a Supernatural show and you don't want to miss the pilot, don't worry; just keep watching like you usually do!
In contrast to the free-wheeling style of Sam and Dean on Supernatural, Tribes will focus on hunter and monster cultures in just one location: Chicago. And don't worry, you won't be losing any characters off the original! The pilot will introduce a new character who will lead the new show, although characters from the original may make appearances.
