It seems like a long time since news of a Supernatural spin-off was announced at least year's Comic-Con, but it's finally time to meet the new cast members of Bloodlines.

When last we saw Sam and Dean, they had just helped their old friend Sheriff Jody Mills take down a nest of vampires that had invaded her town in the episode "Alex Annie Alexis Ann." Along the way, Jody formed a bond with a young girl who had been kidnapped by the nest's mother.

Will Supernatural fans survive the Winchester brotherly brawl? >> 

The main story lines — the battles with Abaddon, Crowley, and Dean's battle with the Mark of Cain — weren't touched on too much, except for the moment when Dean's Mark seemed to give him a little too much pleasure in beheading a vampire.

The next episode, titled "Bloodlines," airs on Tuesday, April 29, and will serve as a jumping-off point should Supernatural: Bloodlines be picked up as a series next season. It will take the boys out of their Men of Letters bunker, off the back roads and into the big city. Check out the official synopsis of the episode from The CW:

Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) investigate a case in Chicago, where they discover that various Mafia-esque monster families are, unknown to humans, running the underbelly of Chicago. One is a family of shape-shifters run by Margo Lassiter (guest star Danielle Savre), whose leadership is thrown into question when her brother David (guest star Nathaniel Buzolic) returns home. The other reigning family in town is made up of werewolves, led by Julian Duval (guest star Sean Faris). While in Chicago, Sam and Dean meet Ennis (guest star Lucien Laviscount), a man with a personal vendetta against the monsters. The Winchesters warn Ennis about heading into the hunter lifestyle, but Ennis refuses to listen and starts down a dangerous path.

First impression from the photos is: Wow, those monsters look young! Though it's probably important to note that the characters are pretty much the same ages that Sam and Dean were when Supernatural first began nine seasons ago. My, how time flies. The second impression is that it looks like the new series will have a little bit of a different look from its predecessor. Being set in the city, it looks sleeker than the original series. Final impression is that it will have a lot of elements that made the first show a hit: scares, violence, monsters and, of course, angst.
