Phew! It looks like Castiel will somehow make it out of Supernatural's angel war (relatively) unscathed because Misha Collins will return next year as a series regular, TVGuide.com has learned.
Don't get me wrong, I love Supernatural. But sometimes I think the show has pushed its luck as far as it can go.
Most series have a hard time sustaining a high level of quality for more than three seasons, but Supernatural (Tuesdays, 9/8c, The CW) is closing in on double digits now. I have no doubt Jeremy Carver will...
The Supernatural spin-off Tribes has me nervous.
The main attraction to the series has always been the relationship between Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles). But the chemistry between Padalecki and Ackles will be impossible to replicate, so I applaud Tribes' decision to not even try. By making the spin-off an ensemble cast, featuring both human and monster leads, it sets itself apart from its predecessor. Yet when it comes to female characters, I worry it's not going to be different enough.
Let's not sugarcoat it: Things on Supernatural are a mess right now. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have split up, there are no more prophets coming to lend a hand, and Earth is caught in the middle of full-on wars for control over Heaven and Hell.
Maybe it's time for some divine help.
During his time masquerading as The Prophet, Chuck (né God) rewarded those who had the bravery to defy his plan (Team Free Will FTW!). But he wasn't above stepping in to save his favorite creations when the situation got too dire, either. Yet as the lines between Heaven, Hell and Earth continue to blur, God is nowhere to be seen and rarely even discussed. So what's the deal?
Somebody get Dean (Jensen Ackles) a box of tissues, a bottle of whiskey and some serious ammo, because the eldest Winchester is hurting bad when Supernatural returns Tuesday.
But Dean doesn't have time to sit around and mope. He's got to get his brother Sam (Jared Padalecki) back and avenge the tragic death of Kevin (Oscric Chau). Supernatural showrunner Jeremy Carver chatted with TVGuide.com about exactly how Dean plans on pull it all off. Plus: He tells us what's next for Castiel (Misha Collins) now that he has his grace back, what Gadreel's real intentions are and more.
