New Supernatural Series Regular Has Been Added for Season 13
Supernatural is relatively unique among the prime time major network drama series on television today in that aside from its two main leads, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki as the Winchester brothers, the series has had an ever-changing list of main characters. Some of those who have recurred on Supernatural have become main cast members for a time, including Misha Collins as Castiel and Mark A. Sheppard as Crowley. Another such actor has been Mark Pellegrino as Lucifer, the brothers’ biggest enemy, who had a new layer of depth added to his character in last season’s finale with the revelation of his son Jack’s existence. It appears this was meant to foreshadow upcoming storylines, as Jack is soon to be the newest Supernatural series regular.
Entertainment Weekly has exclusively confirmed the news that Alexander Calvert, who was seen briefly in the season 12 finale as Jack, has been added as a series regular for Supernatural’s 13th season. The announcement also hints at his characterization, talking about the fact that in the timeline of the new season, Jack was literally born yesterday and is half human, meaning he will not be entirely the same as his father. Considering his young age but sudden physical maturity, he will struggle to understand the world he has been thrust into and what his place in it might be.
Calvert was no stranger to the CW before his appearance in the season 12 Supernatural finale, as he previously played Anarky on Arrow. Fans will be able to see his new journey as a ward of the Winchester brothers on October 12th on the CW (check your local listings for times).
