Australian actor Nathaniel Buzolic ("The Vampire Diaries," "Out of the Blue") and British actor Lucien Laviscount ("Episodes," "Coronation Street") have scored the lead roles in the upcoming spin-off series "Supernatural: Tribes" for The CW.

Set entirely in Chicago, the new series follows various powerful monster families waging a war to control the city, a fight that human residents are generally unaware of.

Buzolic plays David Hayden, a repentant shapeshifter and member of one of the ruling families who has been living as a human for some time.

Laviscount will play Ennis Roth, a police academy cadet whose fiancée was killed in the crossfire during a violent encounter between two of the feuding families. Ennis has now dedicated his life to ridding the city of their influence.
