melissa_roxburghThe Supernatural spinoff formally known as Supernatural: Tribes will from hereon out be known as Supernatural: Bloodlines.

The spinoff, which will air as a backdoor pilot during Supernatural on April 29, “portends to be a sweeping drama about the mafia-esque monster families that, unknowingly to humans, “run” the underbelly of Chicago and who are being tracked by a newly minted Hunter.”

Bloodlines has also cast its final series regular in Melissa Roxburgh. She’ll play Violet Durant, “a member of a powerful werewolf pack who hides her true nature because of her forbidden love for family rival David (The Originals‘ Nathaniel Bozulic), a shapeshifter.” (via TV Line)
