BURBANK, Calif. (July 23, 2017) — Warner Bros. Television’s long-running, fan-favorite series Supernatural (Thursdays 8/7c The CW) is “carrying on” with the confirmed casting for a potential new Wayward Sisters series, set in the world of Supernatural. Cast and producers at Supernatural’s packed Hall H panel at Comic-Con gave further details about the upcoming episode, including officially announcing the cast. While some faces will be familiar to fans of the Winchesters, there were also a few surprises.

Scheduled to air as an episode within Supernatural’s 13th season, Wayward Sisters is written by Andrew Dabb and Robert Berens, who will executive produce along with Robert Singer and Phil Sgriccia. Centered on the character of Sheriff Jody Mills and a group of troubled young women — all orphaned by supernatural tragedy — these “wayward sisters” emerge as a formidable force against the supernatural, under Mills’s training and protection.

· Leading the group is Sioux Falls Sheriff Jody Mills (Kim RhodesColony, Kings of Con), an associate of Bobby Singer, who has grown to be one of Sam and Dean Winchester’s most trusted friends and allies. A foster mother to Claire Novak, Alex Jones and new character Patience Turner, Jody’s greatest challenge will be to prepare them for the battles ahead.

· Lending Jody a hand will be series fan-favorite Sheriff Donna Hanscum (Briana Buckmaster Arrow, Frequency), a relative novice to the hunter’s life, but a close friend who Jody can confide in.

· Claire Novak (Kathryn NewtonBig Little Lies) was introduced to the supernatural world when her father became the vessel for the angel Castiel (series star Misha Collins). Now, a gifted hunter, she lives with Jody, but struggles against her rules.

· Also taken in under Jody’s wing, Alex Jones (Katherine RamdeenThe Tall Man, Almost Human) was rescued by the Winchesters from a family of vampires who used her as a lure for unsuspecting humans. Traumatized by the violence, she has resolved not to hunt…until a threat emerges in Sioux Falls that threatens her new family.

· A new member of the Wayward Sisterhood is the character Patience Turner (Clark BackoDesignated Survivor), a high school over-achiever whose life is turned upside down when she discovers she’s a powerful psychic, a gift she inherited from her estranged grandmother (and season one Supernatural character) Missouri Moseley. Hunted by dark forces for her power, Patience finds refuge with Jody and her wayward family.

· In addition to the Wayward Sisters casting, it was also announced that Lawrence, Kansas psychic Missouri Moseley (played by Loretta DevineThe Carmichael Show), who made a memorable appearance as a Winchester family friend in the season one episode “Home,” will also return to Supernatural this season, in an episode to be announced later.

Supernatural returns for its 13th season on Thursday, October 12, in a new time period (8/7c) on The CW. Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles star as Sam and Dean Winchester. Misha Collins also stars as the angel Castiel, alongside Mark Pellegrino as Lucifer and Alexander Calvert as his son, Jack. Created by Eric Kripke, the series is executive produced by Andrew Dabb, Robert Singer, Phil Sgriccia, Brad Buckner and Eugenie Ross-Leming. The series is from Kripke Enterprises Inc. in association with Warner Bros. Television.

SAN DIEGO and BURBANK, Calif. (July 23, 2017) — “Carry on my wayward son. There’ll be peace when you are done. Lay your weary head to rest. Don’t you cry no more…” Legendary classic rock band KANSAS made a surprise appearance at Comic-Con: International San Diego introducing Supernatural’s packed Hall H panel on Sunday with an epic performance of their legendary single “Carry On Wayward Son,” which serves as the de facto theme song for the Winchester Brothers and Supernatural fans worldwide.

· Supernatural’s annual Comic-Con panel in Hall H started with a custom video recorded by stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles as their characters, Sam and Dean Winchester. The humorous tribute to Supernatural fans was immediately followed by a surprise live performance by KANSAS, accompanied by a 12-season video retrospective of the hit show projected on giant, high-resolution screens surrounding the perimeter of the massive hall. Once the band finished their iconic song, panel moderators (and recurring fan-favorite Supernatural guest stars) Rob Benedict and Richard Speight Jr. took the stage to introduce series stars Ackles, Padalecki and Misha Collins, along with executive producers Robert Singer and Andrew Dabb.

· First used by Supernatural in the opening montage of the season one finale in 2006, “Carry On Wayward Son” has since been used in every season finale episode that depicts “The Road So Far” (i.e. the Winchesters’ wayward journey). The song was also used as the centerpiece of the series’ 200th episode (in which an all-girls high school performs “Supernatural: The Musical!”).

· A vintage live concert performance of the band’s 1976 song can be found here: http://vevo.ly/SmBjRU

BURBANK, Calif. (July 22, 2017) — After three seasons of running, you’d think Barry Allen would deserve a break.

· Kim Engelbrecht (Dominion, Eye in the Sky) has been set as DC character The Mechanic, a highly intelligent engineer who designs devices for Devoe. As Devoe’s right hand, she’s the truest of true believers who’ll stop at nothing to help him implement his plan to fix humanity.
