Supernatural returns to the CW this fall/autumn on Tuesday, October 8 at 9pm ET, and Tahmoh is scheduled to appear in the season 9 premiere.
If you've never seen the show, past seasons are available on Hulu and Netflix. The angel arc (which began in season 4) is deeply embedded in the show's mythology. Supernatural Wiki is a wonderful fandom resource on all things SPN.

Did you ever think we were every coming back? With Tahmoh now on Twitter and the Facebook page reposting, it seems like most fans have been getting their news on those sites. But, we are still here...just a little behind in posting.
We return with this gorgeous promo pic from Tahmoh's upcoming appearance on GlobalTV's Bomb Girls. Thanks to Red Management for sharing the photo on Twitter.
In other news, Tahmoh has confirmed that he will be attending ConnectiCon in Hartford, Connecticut, July 12 to 14. Fellow BSG cast member Aaron Douglas and Michael Trucco are also scheduled to appear. I'm thinking they all need a Tomato Pie from Frank Pepe's! I'm planning to attend (with family in tow), so if you are in New England and can make it to Hartford, hope to see you there!

Caleb's Hope has shared a great interview with Tahmoh, who is a long-time supporter of the organization. If you want to support the organization, consider donating to their latest campaign The Attiak Women's Business Group.
Full disclosure - I am a Caleb's Hope volunteer, and my involvement stems from my being a Tahmoh fangirl. If he had not played Elias on Whistler, I would never have known about the amazing Holly Elissa Dignard or Caleb's Hope. But he did play Elias, and a series of events led me to become the Volunteer Coordinator for this great organization. So it is with great pleasure that I present the interview and encourage all to support the organization's latest campaign.
What did everyone think of Tahmoh's role on CW's Arrow? You can watch the full episode here. Comments may contain spoilers.

Green Arrow TV says CW is showing a movie instead due to the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday that week.
Growing up in Whitehorse, Yukon was obviously a somewhat unique experience. I had perspective as I often visited family friends and cousins in British Columbia (BC) while growing up.
Whitehorse was only about 12 thousand people when I was in my first years of school and had almost doubled in population by the time I was in high school. That's significant growth for a small town but 24 thousand is still a far cry from what most would call a city.
That being said, it was the city for many of the smaller communities in the Yukon and even Alaska. People would travel to Whitehorse to get groceries and necessities that they couldn't in their communities. Because of that, I think a lot of us "city" folk felt that status, too.
I could go on and on about growing up in the north but I think there's some common characteristics that most northern communities share. People are often friendly and forward, not know to have a facade or angle. Northerners can be the most hospitable people but will quickly take it back if they don't feel it's being acknowledged or appreciated.
Northern communities, especially Whitehorse, can be rich with the Arts. As a child, I always remember all the music in bars and music festivals. There was also a lot of theatre and a number of play houses. Many internationally known artists who were from the Yukon or, like many, got sucked into that mysterious allure of the Yukon, made it their home. Ted Harrison and Jim Robb, to name a few.
The Yukon also produces some amazing athletes. Sports of all kinds, including Hockey, Soccer, Curling, Baseball and anything else you can name are actively played. Sports and games indigenous to the north are also popular. You can see the best athletes at these sports at The Arctic Winter Games held ever year. A competition for northern and arctic athletes with Nations from many different countries.
People in the north can be wild. Being a Yukoner means you're one of 34 thousand people in a territory of some 483,000 Sq Km's. You're surrounded by vast amounts of wild and fertile northern forest and all the animal inhabitants in it. Impossible not to have a bit of that rugged, wild land in you.
I also had a unique upbringing as I have a First Nation mother and father of British descent. I'm very blessed to have had these two very opposite cultures to be nurtured in. Many of the First Nations culture in the north is ten of thousands of years old, and I was lucky enough to have an incredible Grandmother who was a Matriarch and teacher of the rich customs, oral history and song and dance.
