In an age when many network television shows are lucky to last a single season before the axe comes down, the CW’s long-running hit Supernatural has proven to be a consistent, crowd-pleasing ratings draw. The ongoing saga of the monster-hunting Winchester brothers has been renewed for a 10th season and is also getting a spinoff series of its own.
Originally titled Supernatural: Tribes, the spinoff has cast its two leads: Australian actor Nathaniel Buzolic, who made his U.S. television debut on The Vampire Diaries, and British actor Lucien Laviscount. The bulk of the plot details are being kept under wraps, but we know the show will be set in Chicago, will be penned by longtime Supernatural writer/producer Andrew Dabb, and directed by executive producer Robert Singer.
Now we know a couple ...

Hollywood is banding together to make sure what happened to Sarah Jones never happens again.
"The Vampire Diaries" crew member, 27, was tragically killed on a film set last month in Georgia due to unsafe working conditions. She was struck by a train while filming the Greg Allman biopic "Midnight Rider," and seven others were injured. The accident is currently under investigation.
On Friday (March 7), more than 500 film industry workers gathered in West Hollywood to pay tribute to Jones, the La Times reports. The union members carried candles and wore shirts that read "We're all Sarah Jones" and "Never Forget. Never Again." as they walked along Sunset Boulevard from the Directors Guild of America building to the International Cinematographers Guild.
Sarah's father, Richard Jones, thanked everyone for their support and called for safer film sets, so that this tragedy would never happen again. "This is not the end, but rather the »
"Supernatural" fans, here's some major news about the upcoming spinoff pilot "Supernatural: Tribes" -- it's getting a name change!
The potential new series is now called "Supernatural: Bloodlines," a title much more fitting for the project about five mafia-like monster families who run the evil underworld of Chicago. The families are being tracked by a new hunter, Ennis, who's trying to stop them and rid Chicago of all things supernatural, spurred by a personal tragedy that propelled him to learn the truth about monsters and hunting.
The pilot has also just finished casting its series regulars, as Melissa Roxburgh has landed the role of Violet Durant, TVLine reports. She is a member of a powerful werewolf pack and hides her true nature because of her forbidden love for »
Of the five networks, The CW has the fewest hours of primetime to fill but they're not finding it any easier to find hits. Most of their returning shows are way down year-to-year and some of their new series are struggling. Which will be cancelled or renewed? Stay tuned!
New CW shows (so far): The Originals, Reign, and The Tomorrow People.
How does The CW decide what to cancel or renew? They look at a lot of different factors but the ratings play an important role. The higher the ratings, the better chance a show has of surviving. Here's how the network's shows are doing so far: »
Roxburgh will play Violet, a member of the werewolf pack. Her character is forced to hide her true form because of her forbidden love for family rival David (Bozulic).
Written by Andrew Dabb and directed by Robert Singer, “Bloodlines” revolves around the various mafiosa monster families that run the underbelly of Chicago. They’re being tracked by a hunter who’s trying to rid the city of supernatural beings.
“Bloodlines” will air as an episode of “Supernatural” on April 29.

More TV casting news hit our radar today: Kevin Williamson's still untitled pilot for CBS has landed "True Blood's" Mariana Klaveno in the supporting role of a detective. C'mon, Kev - it's been weeks. Pick a title already, please!
Per Deadline, Klaveno joins the previously announced Dylan McDermott in the CBS/Warner Bros. TV project written by Williamson (Scream, "The Vampire Diaries," "The Following") and directed by Liz Friedlander ("The Secret Circle," "The Following").
The psychological thriller revolves around two detectives, Beth and Jack (McDermott), who handle stalking incidents for the Threat Assessment Unit of the Lapd. McDermott’s Jack Larsen is a recent transfer from New York. His healthy confidence and quick thinking have gotten him into trouble in the past — a past he hopes to leave behind.
Klaveno's Janice is underestimated in her unit because of her somewhat flashy appearance.
Look for more as it comes. »

Following a lengthy casting process, Melissa Roxburgh has landed the female lead of Violet in the planted Supernatural spinoff, now titled Supernatural: Bloodlines (formerly Tribes). Like her new co-stars Nathaniel Buzolic, Sean Faris and Stephen Martines, who all previously recurred on The Vampire Diaries, Roxburgh too has appeared on hit CW series before. She has done an arc on Arrow and a guest stint on the mothership Supernatural series. Written by Andrew Dabb and directed by Robert Singer, Supernatural: Bloodlines revolves around the various mafia-esque monster families that unknowingly to humans “run” the underbelly of Chicago and are being tracked by a newly minted Hunter who’s trying to stop them and rid Chicago of anything or anyone supernatural. Roxburgh’s Violet is a member of the powerful werewolf pack who hides her true nature because of her forbidden love for family rival David (Bozulic). But when cornered, »

The CW has yet to cast the female lead in its pilot for "iZombie," but another male actor has joined the fray as Robert Buckley ("One Tree Hill," "666 Park Avenue") signs on to play a character named Major.
You may recall that "iZombie" is a supernatural crime procedural that centers on Liv, a med student-turned-zombie who takes a job in the coroner’s office to gain access to the brains she must reluctantly eat to maintain her humanity, but with each brain she consumes, she inherits the corpse’s memories.
With the help of her medical examiner boss and a police detective, she solves homicide cases in order to quiet the disturbing voices in her head.
Per THR, Buckley's Major is Liv's former fiancé, who is trying to transition back to being her friend despite still being in love with her. He's a former college football player-turned-environmental engineer who is extremely likable. »

"The Vampire Diaries" said goodbye to one of the series' best characters on Thursday (March 6): Katherine Pierce.
She may have served her purpose as a villain for most of the time she was onscreen on The CW's supernatural series, but it can't be denied that Katherine got things done. There's a reason she survived over 500 years even though she was being hunted by an Original vampire the entire time: She was smart, she was logical, and she was efficient.
Unfortunately, that meant Katherine had to step on more than a few people to stay ahead of the game, and that caught up with her on her deathbed. Instead of going quietly into that good night (a.k.a. passing through Bonnie), she was violently sucked out of this world and thrust into a darker existence that we're calling The Dark Side (as opposed to the lighter Other Side that »
Jones’ death has triggered a campaign to improve on-set safety, and led to the inclusion of a portrait of Jones on the Academy Awards on Sunday and vows from some union officials to press the issue.
The candlelight vigil went from the Directors Guild of America to the International Cinematographers Guild, Local 600, a few blocks away.
“No one’s daughter, no one’s son, should ever have to die making a movie or TV show,” said Jones’ father, Richard, told the crowd at a gathering in the parking lot of the Cinematographers Guild afterward. Jones’ mother, Elizabeth, stood by his side. He pointed to several in the crowd and said, “You are Sarah Jones,” reflecting the way so »

For several weeks, it seemed like Katherine had gotten away with the perfect crime; jumping into Elena’s body in her dying moments, then working with a Traveler to make her possession of the body’s consciousness permanent. It was only a matter of time until someone discovered the ruse, however, and that moment came at the end of last week’s episode as Caroline and Stefan cracked the mystery, just as Nadia revealed her werewolf bite to her mother. This week’s episode deals with the fallout from both pieces of information, in a strong outing that bids farewell to multiple characters.
Elena being infected by the ripper virus has the potential to be an exciting storyline. »

Once we saw the ending of last night's episode of "The Vampire Diaries," it was obvious why The CW held off providing us with a synopsis for Episode 5.16, "While You Were Sleeping," but we have it now along with a few stills and the ep's preview.
A Killer Virus — When Stefan (Paul Wesley) tries to explain recent events to a very sick Elena (Nina Dobrev), her first instinct is to call Damon (Ian Somerhalder). At the same time, Damon is trying to figure out how to make a disturbing confession to Elena.
While going through Dr. Wes’ files, Caroline (Candice Accola) discovers a frightening secret and is surprised when Enzo (guest star Michael Malarkey) appears, claiming to have the solution everyone is searching for. At Enzo’s insistence, Caroline asks Stefan to meet her at a mysterious location, »

The Vampire Diaries didn’t make us wait long to see how the whole expelling Katherine (Nina Dobrev) from Elena’s (also Dobrev) body scenario would play out, but that doesn’t mean fans got everything they wanted out of it. Even though Dobrev is back to finally being a solo-act, her single remaining character isn’t going to be herself for a while. In a desperate final act, Katherine made a play to ensure that the love of her life would remain out of reach for Elena, and anyone else who may think about batting their eyelashes his way.
Katherine proves in her final moments to be the same complex character we’ve become accustomed to over the past five seasons. Her last decisions were both incredibly touching and equally vindictive, securing her place in somewhere presumably more unpleasant than the other side. Even in death, Katherine Pierce will »

CBS dominated Thursday’s ratings race, as its comedies “The Big Bang Theory,” “The Millers” and “Two and a Half Men” all were at the high end of their range while ABC’s dramas “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” cooled off after their hot returns one week earlier. It was also a good night for CW’s “Reign,” which was up 25% or more across the board, but a bad one for Fox’s “American Idol,” which hit a low with its results show.
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “The Big Bang Theory” (5.2 rating/17 share in adults 18-49, 17.9 million viewers overall) was easily the night’s No. 1 program, up from last week and matching its season high. It was followed by “The Millers” (3.0/9 in 18-49, 11.8 million viewers overall), which retained a stronger-than-usual percentage of its lead-in, and “Two and a Half Men” (2.7/8 in 18-49, 10.5 million viewers overall), which drew »

Thursday evening’s TV ratings are in. Here’s a brief look at the highlights: NBC’s Parks and Recreation scored a rise of 9% with a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demo and garnered 2.89 million viewers.
