'Supernatural' may not see the Winchester brothers back on the case until October 8, but fans needn't wait one moment longer for a first look at new premiere episode "I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here"! The CW's first photo set from the all-new installment has come crashing to Earth, revealing along with it the first arrival of Tahmoh Penikett's new character, and a fan-favorite already showing his ghostly, grizzled mug once again!
The events of 'Supernatural' season 8 finale "Sacrifice" sent a huge number of potential new characters hurtling from the sky, and it seems season 9 has tapped yet another 'Battlestar Galactica' star and all-around genre vet for the first of them. Tahmoh Penikett will appear in the October 8 premiere to kick off a multi-episode arc in season 9, but who might the star have fallen from grace to play?
Tahmoh Penikett sure has a storied history for genre TV fans, popping up on everything from 'Dollhouse' to 'Castle' in his days since 'Battlestar Galactica,' even hooking up with the theatrical 'Man of Steel' next year. But far from content to only appear with the big-screen superheroes, Penikett has also landed a potentially recurring role in The CW's Green Arrow adaptation 'Arrow!' Will Penikett portray an existing DC character, or an altogether new menace?
