'Supernatural' spinoff to be called 'Supernatural: Tribes'


It's officially the golden age of spinoffs.

The CW announced the title of the highly-anticipated "Supernatural" spinoff series on Wednesday (Jan. 29). The new series will be called "Supernatural: Tribes," Deadline reports.

The backdoor pilot -- which will air as an episode during Season 9 -- will explore the different hunter and monster cultures in Chicago, and how the two come into conflict with each other.

And not to worry, "Supernatural" fans: None of the actors known from parent series "Supernatural" will leave for the spinoff, though there's always a chance they might appear. A new character will be introduced in the backdoor pilot who will go on to lead the spinoff series.

So what do you think of the new title? It's an interesting choice, seeing as how the spinoff will be more urban than its parent series, and yet the "Tribes" addition makes it feel more primitive.

"Supernatural" airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
