Everyones favorite Supernatural villain will be around more next season. Mark Sheppard has been promoted to series regular for season ten.
According to Entertainment Weekly, there is no word on how many episodes he will appear in yet.
When season nine ended, Crowley was talking to a Dean’s dead body and telling him all the things he suspected about what would happen when Dean took on the Mark of Cain. He never wanted to tell Dean about all the the horrible things that could happen to him, seeing as he wasn’t sure if they would happen. While Sam was summoning Crowley to save Dean, Crowley was waiting for Dean to wake up as a demon. With Dean being a demon this will be new territory for Supernatural and should give Mark an opportunity to really have fun with Crowley.
When Crowley first entered the Winchester’s lives he was only a lowly cross roads demon. Since then he has become King of Hell, lost his thrown and claimed his title back.
Mark’s TV credits are extensive, including, Warehouse 13, White Collar, Doctor Who, Leverage, 24, Firefly and Battlestar Galactica.
According to A.V. Club, even with the abundance of TV credits to his name, this will be the British actor’s first series regular job.
Mark had an exclusive interview with blastr and this is what he had to say about Crowley: “I’m still not 100 per cent certain what Crowley is. Crowley could be certainly more than the sum of his parts, I would hope. I think we’re sort of uncovering more of Crowley as we go along. Especially in season nine.”
“Crowley’s been a very interesting evolution. I mean, he went from being what is apparently a crossroads demon to running Hell and then to having difficulties running Hell and then ultimately to be in exile. He’s trying to regain his position. It’s just a fantastic arc to play,” he added.
There’s a lot more to learn about Crowley and he’s always entertaining when he is on screen. So season ten should be a lot of fun.
