Welcome to the "Supernatural" family, Sean Faris.

The "Pretty Little Liars" actor has just joined the "Supernatural" spinoff pilot, TVLine reports.

"Supernatural: Tribes" is about the various monster families that rule the dark monster world of Chicago. The families are being tracked by a new hunter who's trying to stop them and rid Chicago of all things supernatural, spurred by a personal tragedy that propelled him to learn the truth about monsters and hunting.

Faris will take on the lead werewolf role, Julian Durant. He is the son of a wealthy family of lycanthropes, and majorly hates the Hayden family of shapeshifters.

Faris joins the recently cast Nathaniel Buzolic and Lucien Laviscount, who will take on the roles of shapeshifter David Hayden and new hunter Ennis Roth, respectively. All three will appear in "Supernatural's" 20th episode this season which will serve as the spinoff's backdoor pilot, airing Tuesday, April 29.

This isn't Faris' first time on a CW series. He also recurred in Season 1 of "The Vampire Diaries," but instead of playing a werewolf, he was a vampire. Now he's trading in those fangs for fur. 

Are you excited to see Faris back on The CW?
