“Supernatural” fans are about to start their weekend off on the right foot after creators of the show’s spinoff, “Supernatural: Tribes,” announced who would be starring in the new CW series. And we have to admit—the studs they casted in the “Supernatural” sequel are seriously hot. But you probably already know that considering you’ve seen Nathaniele Buzolic in “The Vampire Diaries” and Lucien Laviscount in “Skins.”

The British actor Laviscount, who you most likely remember due to his dreamy eyes, will be taking on the lead role of “Supernatural” as Ennis Roth, a police academy trainee whose fiancée is killed in the crossfire of a monster war. Seeking revenge, Roth will set out to hunt down the monster mafias lurking throughout the shadows of Chicago.

Buzolic, who played Klaus’ brother Kol on “The Vampire Dairies,” has been given the series regular role of David Hayden. Hayden is a shapeshifter from one of Chicago’s ruling monster families, according to Entertainment Weekly. However, Hayden wants to stray from the life of corruption, which is why he’s taken up living as a “human” in the windy city.

Here’s where the drama starts; after the death of his fiancée, Roth has made it his mission to rid Chicago of anything or anyone supernatural. But it looks like he’ll cross paths with Hayden and eventually learn that not all supernatural beings shouldn't be seen as detrimental. Will Hayden join Roth in taking down the monster mafias of Chicago? Or will he stay loyal to his family despite disagreeing with their mischievous ways?

“Supernatural: Tribes” will makes its debut as a backdoor pilot during episode 20 of its sister show. According to reports, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) will run into Roth while working a case in Chicago. There, they will teach Roth what they know—essentially handing over the monster-catching baton to the up-and-coming cop.

“It comes as no surprise that Sam is far more sympathetic to the wannabe cop than his brother,” spoilers revealed. Could that mean we should expect Padalecki’s character to make a guest appearance on “Tribes”?
