The CW Renames its Supernatural Spinoff and Casts Melissa Roxburgh as a Regular
The CW has renamed its "Supernatural" spinoff as "Supernatural: Bloodlines" and found the perfect actress to fill the last remaining vacancy on the show's regulars roster in Melissa Roxburgh, who previously appeared in the "Supernatural" Season 7 episode "Time After Time."
Per The Wrap, Roxburgh will play Violet, a member of Chicago's powerful werewolf pack. She hides her true nature because of her forbidden love for family rival David (Nathaniel Bozulic), a shapeshifter. But when cornered, Violet's inner wolf breaks out.
Fans of The CW's "Arrow" should also recognize Roxburgh from her recurring guest role of Blake; she additionally starred in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid film franchise.

"Bloodlines" follows the various mafia-esque monster families that, unknowingly to humans, “run” the underbelly of Chicago. They are being tracked by a newly-minted Hunter (Lucien Laviscount), who wants to stop them and rid Chicago of anything or anyone supernatural.
The "Bloodlines" backdoor pilot airs as Episode 9.20 of "Supernatural" on April 29th.
