Tahmoh

The fall TV season gets underway in over a month, and as such a lot of familiar actors are going to find themselves in new parts on some of your other favorite shows. To wit, look for the artist formally known as Captain Karl “Helo” Agathon on Battlestar Galactica, actor Tahmoh Penikett, is set to appear on the long-running CW series Supernatural when its ninth season begins this October, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Penikett will play Ezekiel, who is described by Supernatural executive producer Jeremy Carver as, “a dignified warrior angel injured in the fall.” The last season of the show ended with millions of angels falling to Earth, and Carver says that the formally heavenly bodies will be playing with “lots of different agendas.”

[The angels are] lost, scared, and vengeful, and I think [the storyline] is lending itself to lots of exciting and wonderful character moments for all of our characters to be dealing with. A world of fallen angels is a dirty, bloody, scary and in some ways very human world. We’re very excited to explore that.

Penikett will be in good company on the show as numerous former BSG actors have had recurring roles in Supernatural including, Mark Sheppard, Rick Worthy,  Donnelly Rhodes and Sebastian Spence. Penikett is also well known for appearing as a regular on Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse and recently played Vancouver mayoral candidate Jim Martin on Sy-Fy’s Continuum. His first episode of Supernatural will be the season premiere on October 8.

It may have been a bit anticlimactic considering that The CW announced that Being Human showrunner Jeremy Carver would be replace Sera Gamble at the head of Supernatural‘s writers room last month, but the netlet made it official today when Supernatural was announced as one of three shows it was renewing for the 2012-13 season.

Supernatural, which stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles as the demon-hunting Winchester Brothers, premiered on the now defunct WB in 2005. This renewal guarantees, at least, an eighth season for the show. Anything after that will depend on ratings, and if Padalecki and Ackles can be persuaded to stick around, they’re own contracts run out at the end of next season.

Now I’m afraid I don’t watch Supernatural, so I can’t speak intelligently about the show. I do know that it was a pretty substantial and vocal fan base, so this is excellent news for them, unless they’re of the opinion that the show should have ended two seasons ago and that season 7 Supernatural isn’t as good as season 3 Supernatural.

And for the record, the other two shows renewed by The CW are 90210 and The Vampire Diaries.
