Supernatural Spinoff Gets New Name and Casts Lead Actress

Melissa RoxburghThe Supernatural spinoff, Supernatural: Tribes, shall henceforth be known as Supernatural: Bloodlines instead, so decrees Deadline. And unless they have another name change before the show actually airs, it shall stay that way.

In addition to this name change, Melissa Roxburgh, yet another CW regular, has been cast in the role of Violet, a member of a  prominent werewolf family who is in love with a member of the rival shapeshifter family. Roxburgh has starred in Arrow, as well as the original Supernatural itself.

This rounds off the casting for the main crew, all of whom will appear in the twentieth episode of the ninth season of Supernatural, which will be acting as a backdoor pilot for the spinoff series.
