The long-running CW hit Supernatural is reportedly working on a spinoff.
Today at Comic-Con, executive producer Bob Singer said that a backdoor pilot is being developed, though Warner Bros. and The CW have not confirmed this.
Reportedly, the show will introduce a new character at some point in Season 9 who would then anchor the Supernatural spinoff, should it move forward.
It’s a formula that the network is very familiar with at this point.
The CW will soon debut a Vampire Diaries spinoff, The Originals, having aired a “backdoor pilot” in an April episode of The Vampire Diaries Season 4.
Supernatural, starring Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles and an underrated staple of the network lineup since 2005, kicks off its ninth season this fall.
