Mark Sheppard has confirmed that he will appear in the new season of Supernatural.

The actor plays the sinister Crowley in the drama series, which returns to The CW on Friday, September 23.

"There's actually a shot of me in the season seven trailer, so you're not going to really get away with [hiding] that, are you?" he told Assignment X.

Sheppard insisted that the extent of his Supernatural role this season has to remain a secret, calling the situation "kind of weird".

"The more that I've played characters that have recurred, the more that I've played characters that figure somewhat largely in these really, really fun shows that I've gotten to do," he explained.

"[And so] the more I've had to keep a secret as to what my purpose is, or whether I'm actually showing up at all."

He also suggested that viewers may discover new secrets about Crowley, hinting that the character's demonic background could be a facade.

"You never see my eyes flash red, [so] how do you know I'm a demon?" he asked. "[Everyone] could be lying. That's the fascinating thing."

James Marsters, Charisma Carpenter, Jewel Staite and Kevin McNally will also appear in the new season of Supernatural.
