The CW’s ‘Supernatural’ keeps getting better and better. The upcoming ninth season has promised all kinds of excitement, and one of those thrilling items is adding a slew of guest stars!
Yesterday, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that ‘Whodunnit?’ murder-mystery reality competition host Gildart Jackson will be joining the series as “Haggerty, a veteran member of the Men of Letters, and [will] appear during a 1930 flashback.” Jackson, who is also known for his roles on ‘Charmed,’ ‘Burn Notice’ and ‘General Hospital,’ will appear in the season’s fourth episode titled “Slumber Party.” So far, he’ll only star in one episode.
He won’t be the only guest-actor this season, as ‘Battlestar Galactica’ alum Tahmoh Penikett landed himself a multi-episode stint as angel Ezekiel who is “a dignified warrior angel injured in the Fall” that viewers witnessed at the end of last season, executive producer Jeremy Carver revealed. Keep your eyes peeled for Penikett to appear in the Season 9 premiere.
As fans now know, the season will focus heavily on the angels, especially now that they’re on Earth, including everybody's favorite angel Castiel (Misha Collins). Now that Cas has fallen, it seems he will no longer have his angel powers and will slowly embrace his human-side.
"Now he can pop in and basically fold laundry. There's a shift in the dynamic there in terms of how he can be utilized by the brothers," Collins explained at Comic-Con 2013. "It is going to be an immensely rich terrain to explore - his becoming human. ... Now he's really down in the dirt of being human and getting to experience what it is to actually eat and then what happens to the food after you eat it."
Speaking of Cas turning human, check out the first promo photo for the new season that was released yesterday by the network! One thing missing? Cas’s trench coat! Even though his signature piece of clothing is missing, at least Sam (Jared Padalecki), Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Cas are back together as a united front - or so it seems.
Catch the ‘Supernatural’ premiere on Tuesday, Oct. 8 at 9/8c.
