Spinoff will be planted in a spring episode of 'Supernatural'

The CW is planning a spinoff for “Supernatural,” and will seed the project in an episode of the long-running drama next spring.

From Warner Bros. TV, spinoff will explore the clashing hunter and monster cultures in Chicago. The planted episode will serve as a pilot and introduce new characters, which will anchor the spinoff.

CW employed a similar spinoff strategy with “The Originals,” a “Vampire Diaries” spinoff that was seeded in an episode of “TVD.” “The Originals” is slated to debut this fall.

“Supernatural,” created by Eric Kripke, is entering its ninth season on the CW.
