Nine seasons in and Supernatural is expanding its cult empire. 

A spinoff of the long-running drama, which stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, is being developed at the CW, executive producer Bob Singer revealed to reporters at San Diego Comic-Con 2013 on Sunday. 

The network plans to introduce the potential series as a backdoor pilot in episode 20, which will be written by Andrew Dabb

The spinoff, however, will not be centered on a character Supernatural fans know and love but on a new character introduced in the episode, who will then anchor the new series, should it be picked up. While details are slim, the series is said to have a more urban feel than Supernatural

This isn't the first time the CW has decided to work on a spinoff of one of their popular series: The Originals, which focuses on three characters from The Vampire Diaries, premieres this fall.

Supernatural returns for its 9th season on Tuesday, Oct. 15 on the CW.
