Supernatural might be the most immortal genre show on TV. At the CW’s 2017 upfront event, CW President Mark Pedowitz described it as “indestructible.” And with good reason. It has continued to take chances even though a show that’s twelve seasons in doesn’t necessarily have to, and it maintains one of the strongest, most loyal fanbases on TV. That’s why the the fact that Supernatural Season 13 is a go for next fall should surprise nobody.
Supernatural Season 13 Cast
Alexander Calvert has procured a main cast promotion for Supernatural Season 13, reports EW. His character, Jack, is a powerful nephilum (half-human, half-angel), sired by Lucifer with presidential aide Kelly Kline (Courtney Ford), who died during the birthing process (as she knew ahead of time).
While Jack’s dangerous gestation was central to much of Season 12, utilizing his unearthly powers while still in the womb, his first proper appearance (played by Calvert,) occurred in the closing moments of the Season 12 finale “All Along the Watchtower,” newly-born, yet freakily fully-grown. Since we’ve been getting hints that Jack may not be a malevolent chip off the old satanic block, Season 13 should see him pulled between good and evil; a struggle that will clearly fall into the Winchesters’ lap, since the hunter brothers reportedly take him into their care.
Genre fans will recognize Calvert from his run on The CW’s Arrow as Lonnie Machin, a.k.a., DC Comics villain Anarky. He also fielded a TV run on A&E’s The Returned and appeared in the acclaimed 2016 teen drama film The Edge of Seventeen.
