Get your first look as Rick Springfield appears as Lucifer on “Supernatural” beginning on Thursday October 13 in the episode titled “Keep Calm and Carry On.”

Previously reported July 25:

Former “General Hospital” star Rick Springfield (Port Charles’ Dr. Noah Drake) will appear in the upcoming twelfth season of “Supernatural” as Lucifer. Springfield is set to play the character for a multi-episode arc, which was announced at the San Diego Comic-Con this weekend. Springfield released his eighteenth album Rocket Science earlier this year.

The show’s executive producer Robert Singer described Springfield’s character as, “a rock star who’s a little bit on the down side who’s trying to come back.” Last season Lucifer possessed Castiel (Misha Collins) and this season he is looking for a new host, which is where Springfield’s character enters as his new vessel.

“Supernatural” premiers on October 13 at 9:00 PM on The CW. Fans of the rocker can also see him up close and personal at Rick Springfield’s 2016 Bahamas fan getaway.
