‘Battlestar Galactica’ Star Tahmoh Penikett to Appear on ‘Supernatural’ Season 9

Tahmoh Penikett Joins Arrow Battlestar Galactica Star Tahmoh Penikett to Appear on Supernatural Season 9

Supernatural looks like it’s intent on keeping its creative resurgence alive going into season 9. The series seemed to lack narrative focus in its sixth and seventh seasons, but now it looks like the series is back on track and on target for showrunner Jeremy Carver’s strategy for season 10. It’s almost as if this show – which so often deals in matters of life and death – has experienced a resurrection of its own.

Rumors are already circulating that Supernatural could extend to season 12 or beyond, and considering that the show is among the most consistent hits on The CW, the network is eager for the adventures of the Winchester brothers to continue. Plans are already in the works, in fact, to produce a Supernatural spin-off series. But what can fans expect from the upcoming ninth season?

Fan favorite characters like Bobby Singer (Jim Beaver) and Castiel (Misha Collins) are set to return, and now TV Guide reports that Tahmoh Penikett will guest star in the season 9 premiere. The first episode back will feature the actor as Ezekiel, a fallen warrior angel. Carver has previously revealed that season 9 will focus largely on the show’s angels (hence an expanded role for Castiel) and their interactions with the Winchesters.

The Supernatural role marks the latest guest spot for Penikett, who is best known for his series regular roles on Battlestar Galactica and Dollhouse. He recently appeared on shows like The Killing, Continuum, Arrow and Castle as well as this summer’s big screen superhero reboot Man of Steel. Given his experience dealing with sci-fi and other genre shows, Penikett’s casting is a no-brainer. Moreover, his work demonstrates that he can bring the right combination of humor and intensity to Supernatural.

It’s unknown at this point if Ezekiel will reappear throughout season 9, but considering that Penikett has a positive relationship with The CW (see: his work on Arrow), it’s likely that – if fans react well to the character – he might pop up again down the line. After all, Supernatural has a history of long-standing recurring characters (and a tendency to not let even death keep the most popular characters away).

Do you think Penikett is a good fit for Supernatural season 9? Who else would you love to see on the show? Sound off in the comments section below with your thoughts and suggestions.

  1. Bring on the new season! But, I am cautious because even though I am a super fan of the show I don’t want it “wear out”. I would rather have a solid final season for year 10 than to have seasons 12, 13 etc., be convoluted and gets cancelled mid season. Anywho I digress. Amazing addition CW!

    • Totally agree. I must admnit though that the whole Angel business is redundant. I get it: the ultimate good vs evil (with some grey areas) but I feel like I’ve been watching the same thing for quite a while now


  2. Bring back JDM!

  3. Awesome, loved him in BSG. I wish theyd bring Katee Saackhoff on for a guest spot or two. Also Jason Mamoa would be soooo cool on there.

  4. Good charismatic choice. He’ll fit right in.

  5. I think season 9 will be awesome. First you have these fallen sngels that have no idea what just happened so they are mad confused and powerless. Second the Winchesters have two big bada this time Ab and Met. I hope it comes to they have to free Lucifer and Michael in order to end it or something that would be awesome if Sam is forced to say yes and it ends in that garden where he snaps Deans neck. Lucifer said no matter what you do no matter what decisions you make we will always end up here chuck might come back cuz Heaven is screwed

  6. I would like to see that little half-demon boy who shrank Castiel into a doll return.

  7. i would love to see John Winchester back on the show the 3 together are AWESOME PLEASE BRING BACK JOHN !!!!! AND BOBBY , I THINK BOTH WOULD BE AWSOME .
