Supernatural adds Danneel Ackles as recurring guest star
Another Ackles is joining the Supernatural fun.
EW has confirmed that Danneel Ackles will recur in the back-half of Supernatural‘s 13th season. Ackles, who’s married to series star Jensen Ackles, will play a character named Sister Jo.
According to Variety, who first reported the casting, Sister Jo is a faith healer who catches the eye of none other than Lucifer. And as fans know, once you’ve piqued Lucifer’s interest, well, your life becomes a whole lot more complicated.
So far in season 13, Lucifer’s main mission has been to find his son, though at this point, you can add “stop Michael” to his to-do list as well. There’s no word on whether Sister Jo will tie into either of those schemes (or whether Ackles will get to share any screen time with her husband).
Ackles, best known for her work on One Tree Hill, will first appear in episode 13, titled “Devil’s Bargain.”
Supernatural airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
