After nine seasons, the producers of the horror television series "Supernatural" are creating a spin-off show called "Supernatural: Tribes." The show will spin-off of an episode to air later this season and Screen Rant reported on Feb. 21 that the CW has found its two stars for the new show.

The actors who will play the leads in the show are Australian actor Nathaniel Buzolic and British actor Lucien Laviscount. Buzolic is best known to American television audiences as the evil vampire Kol Mikaelson on "The Vampire Diaries." Laviscount only has one U.S. credit so far with a recurring role on Showtime's "Episodes."

"Supernatural: Tribes" will change the focus of the show from the monster hunters point of view to a more ensemble look at a hunter among monster families that control the city, best described as supernatural powered mafia families.

Buzolic will play David Hayden, a shapeshifter who has been living among the humans for years now despite being a member of one of the ruling families. Laviscount stars as a police cadet named Ennis Roth, whose fiancée died in the middle of crossfire between the two warring supernatural families. He then dedicates his life to hunting down the monsters and ending them.

From the sound of the plot, David will end up partnering with Ennis, even though the latter is a sort of monster himself.

"Supernatural: Tribes" is one of a number of spin-offs for the CW, who successfully spun-off "The Vampire Diaries" with "The Originals" and will have a DC Comics spin-off when "The Flash" spins off of "Arrow."
