'Supernatural' promo: Crowley has an order, Castiel has a warning -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Supernatural fans know that the show is one of the most quotable television programs out there — and their promos are no exception.

Take for example this one, which you’re seeing first exclusively on EW.

In it, King of Hell, Crowley (Mark Sheppard), informs us of Supernatural’s move to Tuesdays and says fans’ viewership will earn them his “eternal thanks.” But as Castiel warns in his signature deadpan manner, “That is not something you want.” (GIF, please!) Honestly, that’s not even the best line. That honor goes to: “That’s a very big biggie.”

Check out the promo below. And make sure to catch Supernatural’s season 9 premiere Oct. 8 on the CW. See some new footage here. READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' promo: Death comes for Sam? -- VIDEO

Sam was in rough shape in the season finale of Supernatural and according to this just released promo, his situation is going to get worse before it gets better. In fact, it appears Death (Julian Richings) pays Sam (Jared Padalecki) a visit!

This news is not good. (Duh.) Especially considering exec producer Jeremy Carver has already teased that Dean (Jensen Ackles) will be keeping a secret from Sam that has to do with why Sam survives the trials.  Is Dean going to make some sort of deal to save Sam…again? Is Death’s appearance something they put in the promo to throw us off? Why is Dean punching Sam in what appears to be a dream or vision?

So many questions! Watch the promo for the new season, which kicks off Oct. 8 on the CW, below. READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' alum to recur on 'The Originals' -- EXCLUSIVE

Dracula is coming to The Originals…sorta.

EW has learned exclusively that CW’s forthcoming Vampire Diaries spin-off, The Originals, has cast Supernatural alum Todd Stashwick, who fans of that show will recall played a Dracula-impersonating shapeshifter during season 4’s “Monster Movie.” The actor is set to recur in the role of Father Kieran starting in episode 4 of the show’s freshman season, which kicks off Oct 3.

“Kieran is a tortured Priest with a dark past,” executive producer Julie Plec says. “Once a powerful and pragmatic diplomat between the humans and the various supernatural factions in New Orleans, he returns home looking for answers about a personal tragedy but finds a very different landscape than when he left.”

CBS settles legal dispute with 'Glass House' producers

CBS has settled a dispute with producers of ABC’s alleged Big Brother knock-off, Glass House, the network announced today.

The news comes a year after CBS tried but failed to gain traction on a suit brought against ABC and producers of Glass House, claiming copyright infringement. When that motion failed to get the courts to bar ABC from airing the program, CBS dropped the suit and instead pursued arbitration, which takes place out of the courts, against some of the show’s producers.

CBS’ statement reads in full:

'Supernatural' scoop: 'Dollhouse' alum cast as fallen angel

The angels have fallen on Supernatural — and at least one of them is going to be a familiar face.

EW has learned that Tahmoh Penikett, best known for his roles on Dollhouse and Battlestar Galactica, has been cast as Ezekiel, “a dignified warrior angel injured in the fall,” according to executive producer Jeremy Carver, nodding to the last scene from the CW drama’s season 7 finale. He will make his first appearance on the show in the season 9 premiere, airing Oct. 8.

Penikett, who most recently appeared on Continuum, played FBI agent Paul Ballard for two seasons on Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse and Capt. Karl Agathon, so beloved for his small role in the BSG mini-series that he went on to co-star on the series.

At Comic-Con last month, executive producer Jeremy Carver said this season of Supernatural would find brothers Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) dealing with a variety of angels who all have “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,” he said. “A world of fallen angels is a dirty, bloody, scary and in some ways very human world. We’re very excited to explore that.”

'NCIS,' 'Supernatural,' 'NCIS: LA,' 'Sons of Anarchy': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Howdy, Roomies!

It’s that time of the week again. Excited? You should be! I am. I’ve also had a lot of caffeine this week while covering the Television Critics Association press tour with my colleagues, so … this should be interesting.

As always, send your questions to spoilerroom@ew.com.

‘NCIS’ BOSS: ‘EVERYONE HAS TO WATCH THE FIRST TWO EPISODES’
I hear ya, NCIS fans. The departure of Cote de Pablo is an unfortunate turn of events, to say the least. NCIS EP Gary Glasberg was “saddened” by the situation, too, telling me earlier this week during CBS’ annual bash for television critics that “it’s the last thing we planned on.” That said, he promised, “At the end of the day, I’m really happy with what we came up with. Everyone has to watch the first two episodes.”

Why? Well, for one, he teased, the episodes were completely reworked in order to accommodate this curve ball. “I literally had to lock myself away and everything I was planning on had to be blown out and I had to start all over again,” he says of the news, which came after plans for the season had already begun. “Again, it’s not what we had hoped for. This family — this NCIS family that exists between [the characters] — is so special and so unique, and this was Cote’s decision and we have to respect that … but some really fantastic work is going to come out of what occurred. We have some really terrific stuff planned for the year.”

So what ARE those plans? For one, Ziva will be “prominent” in the second episode of the season and “it’s a really touching, emotional story and I promise the viewers will not be disappointed — especially the Tiva fans, as we say. I hope it’s everything they want it to be.”

He adds: “I want some of it to be a surprise, but I think people will be pleased at the end of the day with where it’s left both emotionally and psychologically — and not only for Tony, but Gibbs, Abby, and everybody. That’s a big part of what I was taking into consideration — really understanding how the people and the fans are so connected to our characters. You really have to honor that.”

Who’s already crying?

'Supernatural,' 'Suits,' 'Covert Affairs,' 'Blue Bloods': Find out what's next in Spoiler Room

Welcome to Spoiler Room’s FALL SEASON!

Ok, I know it’s still technically summer, but all your favorite shows are back at work and the scoop is coming fast and furious.  So, here we are.  Group hug!

With that: PLEASE send your questions in to Spoilerroom@ew.com. You can find your answers here every Thursday.

‘COVERT AFFAIRS': WILL SPARKS FLY WITH ANNIE AND TEO?

In the July 30 episode of USA’s Covert Affairs, Annie (Piper Perabo) heads back to Colombia to determine the true allegiances of Arthur’s son, Teo (Manolo Cardona), after she receives intel that the terrorist group he’s involved with is planning an attack. There are some tense scenes between Perabo and Cardona, who previously worked together on the slightly less suspenseful 2008 film Beverly Hills Chihuahua. “I can’t tell you everything that happens to him [this season], but it’s dangerous,” Perabo says, with a laugh. “He gets a lot of stunts, car crashes, and shootouts. That’s another reason I was glad they cast Manolo: I was glad to have a really brave, macho guy.”

While we’re happy Annie is finally with her handler, Auggie (Chris Gorham), we can’t help but wonder if we’ll see sparks fly with Teo. “We shot this scene recently with Teo in a foreign city,” Perabo says carefully, “and he rescued me in the middle of this fight. Both the hair and makeup girls came up to me afterward, and they said, ‘What’s gonna happen with Teo and Annie?! It all seems like it’s gonna go off!’ I went up to Manolo, and I was like, ‘All right, keep it on a simmer. You can’t put out that much heat. You’re Latin. A little is a lot!'” — Mandi Bierly

‘SUPERNATURAL': SCOOP-A-PALOOZA

In addition to what was dolled out during the Supernatural panel, this year’s press room was a wonderful flood of scooplets. Here, I pull out some highlights:

+ CROWLEY = CURED? – Mark Sheppard scooped to me during our chat on the EW Comic-Con couch that Crowley was most certainly going to struggle with certain side effects from almost being cured at the end of last season, but, he maintains, Sam and Dean “did not cure him.” “I mean, as far as the canon is concerned, if you don’t complete the task then it hasn’t happened. I’d be more interested to see…if there is any residual effects.”

+ DEAN’S SECRET– So, Dean’s got a secret. Exactly what it is, we’re not sure. Neither is Jensen Ackles, but, he teases, it’s “one of the bigger issues of the series.” “So it’ll be interesting to see how that plays out,” he says. Jared Padalecki teased a little further: ” It does really heavily involve Sam, and even has a lot to do with why Sam’s still alive. So Dean is just kind of lying to Sam.  And he’s hating it every step of the way and Sam can’t really tell,” he says. “But when Sam finds out, s–t’s going to hit the fan.”

+ WILL ACKLES DIRECT? Ackles is also waiting to hear whether or not he’ll step behind the camera to direct another episode. After directing one episode per season for the last three seasons, “I’m not directing this year — well not yet. They haven’t given me one. I usually direct the first one out of the gate, but because I have a 7-week-old daughter I opted to stay home with the newborn instead this year,” he says. But there’s still a chance he can. “There’s still a few episodes that are not slated yet with the directors and I think they’re trying to figure out how they can slide me in there storyline wise.”

+ CASTIEL’S NEW CHALLENGES – Lots of scoop on what’s coming up with powerless Cas in my chat with Misha Collins and Mark Sheppard, but Collins, who is slated to appear in more than a dozen episodes throughout this season, added on the matter: “I certainly hope that at the very least, Cas is going to change his underwear now that he’s human. But I will tease for you – this is pretty juicy stuff since we’re getting into the wardrobe, there is a Laundromat scene in episode 1. So this very question has been forefront in the writer’s minds.” As for his relationship with the boys? Ackles says, “It’ll be interesting to see how the relationship evolves given his new lack of skills.”

‘SUITS’ ALMOST STAGED A BIG BREAK-UP

The new relationship between law firm associate Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) and paralegal Rachel Zane (Meghan Markle) may get rocky on Suits, but it is here to stay – at least for the length of the USA drama’s summer run. But it wasn’t always that way.

“They were planning on breaking us up at episode 10,” Markle reveals. “I know that it has now been completely restructured and re-conceived because they are enjoying Mike and Rachel as a couple too much. They don’t want to do it.”

The decision is one she definitely supports. “It’s really kind of cool and sweet to just not have to keep slapping him,” she jokes. But on a serious note, she adds, “Because the show is doing so well, and we’re so lucky — you can see that we probably have a few more seasons in us — the idea of ‘will-they-won’t-they, will-they-won’t-they, okay, they will, but only for 10 episodes and then it’s going to go away’ felt like then where do you go from that? If it took us two seasons to try to figure out if we could make it work, then maybe they take that time and really give us an opportunity to have something. Just like with any character, with any relationship that you have onscreen, when you can settle into it a bit more, you get to find what’s interesting about it, find layers and nuances. So I’m really happy that they’re really happy with it.” — Mandi Bierly

NBC moves 'Grimm' to Tuesdays. Which other shows have escaped the Friday Night Death Slot?

One year ago, Friday nights featured the great showdown of three genre shows all airing at 9 p.m.: Supernatural, Fringe, and Grimm. Now, all of those shows can look at their Friday time slot in the rear-view mirror — Fringe because it aired its series finale in January but Supernatural and Grimm because they’ve managed to beat the odds and escape the so-called Friday Night Death Slot.

NBC has moved Grimm to Tuesdays at 10 p.m., where it will replace the canceled dating show Ready for Love. Grimm will air once more on Friday — tomorrow’s episode, “Ring of Fire,” which was preempted last week for coverage of the manhunt in Boston — and will air on Tuesdays for the rest of season 2, starting April 30.
