Evil has a new face on Supernatural … or does it?
EW can exclusively reveal that Alexander Calvert, who appeared briefly in the season 12 finale, will be a series regular for the show’s upcoming thirteenth season, in which he’ll reprise his role as Jack (better known as Lucifer’s son). But don’t expect Jack to be a younger version of Lucifer — he might be half angel, but he’s also half human.
“Born literally yesterday, Jack struggles to understand the world he’s brought into and the family that has taken him in (Sam and Dean Winchester) while he wrestles with his place in the world,” his character description reads. “Will he be good? Evil? Or something in between?”
The biggest takeaway? Sam and Dean decide to take Jack in.
As for Calvert, fans might recognize him from his stint playing Anarky on Arrow or, even more recently, as Nick in the 2016 film Edge of Seventeen. Below is a look at his appearance in the season 12 finale of Supernatural:
Supernatural returns on Thursday, Oct. 12 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
