The CW has confirmed its planned spinoff of its long-running drama "Supernatural".
One of the late episodes in the upcoming ninth season of the show will serve as a backdoor pilot that will introduce new characters.
Said characters will anchor the spinoff which will "explore the clashing hunter and monster cultures in Chicago." Unlike "Supernatural," the spin-off will stick to the one city.
The news comes as the network has revised its schedule and moved up its various series premieres by a week or two. The ninth season of "Supernatural" is now slated to premiere on October 8th.
