Before I say anything, I'd like to preface with this: I love Castiel. I can't imagine Supernatural without him. When Cas didn't escape Purgatory with Dean, I couldn't wait for him to return. But right when we got Cas back, Naomi took him away.
He's still Cas, of course — eccentricities and all — but he's also Heaven's pawn. Though Cas is no longer an unquestioning servant to...
Castiel fans, rejoice! Misha Collins is being re-promoted to...
The remainder of Supernatural's eighth season — which resumes Wednesday at 9/8c on The CW — with the focus on Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki), who are on their quest to finish translating the "Word of God" tablet, which will allow them to shut the gates of Hell and trap demons there forever. But the Winchesters won't be alone in that pursuit. "Everyone's going to have some skin in the game," says exec producer Jeremy Carver, especially King of Hell Crowley (Mark A. Sheppard).
For CW President Mark Pedowitz, spinning off a show from his network's biggest hit was a no-brainer.
"I'm a big believer if you have something that is working and you can incubate it and find a way to get it on the air, it's a good way to get pilots done," Pedowitz said of the upcoming Vampire Diaries spin-off Sunday at the Television Critics Association winter previews.

The pilot, which will air as an episode of The Vampire Diaries on April 25, will focus on Joseph Morgan's Klaus and the members of the Original Family of vampires in New Orleans. "Klaus was the founding father of New Orleans, and the show is set in that venue," Pedowitz said. "Klaus is just a great character and the Original Family has such dysfunctional family dynamics. We felt it was a great way to go to take the show."
Also on board for the show is Phoebe Tonkin's Haley, which Pedowitz said ruled out some rumblings about Tonkin playing the lead role in the network's Amazon, an origin-story take on Wonder Woman....
Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles
"Sorry, Sam, you are well and truly alone."
That taunt at the end of last year's Supernatural finale sets up the psychological drama for Season 8, which kicks off Wednesday (9/8c, The CW). Sam and Dean Winchester (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) reunite in the premiere, but all is not as it once was. It's been a year since they've fought evil together, and each of the brothers have spent that time in very different, life-altering ways.
Supernatural's Misha Collins is a dad for the second time.
Collins's wife, Victoria Vantoch, gave birth to a little girl, according to an announcement from the show's Twitter feed. Further details were not released.
Jensen Ackles as Dean and Jared Padalecki
After seven seasons of literally going to hell and back, Supernatural star Jensen Ackles isn't too phased by his alter ego's trip to the world between the living and the dead in the Season 7 finale.
"I mean come on, it's like diet Hell," Ackles told the Comic-Con crowd on Sunday. "Much like the Hell situation, obviously Dean can't stick down there forever. He gets out. How he gets out...

Could Castiel have survived Leviathans' mass exodus of his body, leaving only a soggy trenchcoat behind? On Friday's episode of Supernatural (9/8c, The CW), Castiel has returned... but if he's intact remains to be seen.
"He plays a substantial role in the episode," series executive producer Sera Gamble tells TVGuide.com, "but when he comes back, it's not in exactly the same state or state of mind when we last left him."
