The CW’s long-running series Supernatural has promoted Mark Sheppard to series regular for its upcoming tenth season. Sheppard joins series regulars Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, and Jared Padalecki.
Sheppard first appeared on the series in the middle of its fifth season, back in November 2009 as Crowley, the current King of Hell.
Sheppard’s promotion to series regular makes perfect since going into season ten. Supernatural‘s season nine finale closed as Crowley informed Dean (Ackles) that he was getting ready to enter a new life as a Demon. Dean and Crowley’s frenemy relationship was a major aspect in season nine, as the two joined forces to take down Abaddon (Alaina Huffman), a power Demon whose goal was to overthrow Crowley as the King of Hell.
The CW gave Supernatural an early renewal back in February, and the network continues to work on a spinoff for the series.
After the failed spinoff for Supernatural: Bloodlines, network president Mark Pedowitz informed reporters earlier this month that he plans to develop another spinoff for next season.
Supernatural returns this fall at 9/8c on The CW.
