Misha Collins Will Not Be a Series Regular in Supernatural’s Season 7!

Despite being a fan favorite, and despite his new role as a soul-powered God, Misha Collins will no longer be a regular on Supernatural in Season 7. Sera Gamble explained to TVLine that this is because the show’s focus has been and always will be on the boys, despite the writers’ feelings for Cas and his portrayer:

“When it comes to Supernatural, our philosophy is that everyone moves in and out and weaves in and out of the story, obviously with the exception of Sam and Dean. We love Misha. We love and adore the character of Castiel. His character developed to this extent and went in this unexpected direction because we were so inspired by him.”

Cas’s transformation will be explored next season, and there will be angel stories, but “they will probably be more self-enclosed,” reveals Gamble. Collins will be in the Season 7 premiere, but Gamble will not say how much he will be on the show beyond that, because it would give away too much about what happens in the premiere.

Supernatural fans, are you disappointed we won’t be seeing more of Collins next season? Any theories about what this means for Cas? Be sure to share your thoughts in the comments!

     this sucks:(…spartacus should kill them all :))))

     Cas is amazing he has to stay on :)

    Is there some law that says that if you become a showrunner or producer you must become a raging egomaniac with no common sense and a burning desire to make stupid decisions? SPN is doing GREAT! People LOVE the show and Cas is a big part of that! SPN is not broken and the chemistry between Dean, Sam, Bobby and Cas is a big part of that. Limiting Cas time is a HUGE mistake! And while I agree the show is about the boys they are not an island. Also, SPN has come along way from the two boys chasing yellow eyes. The world of SPN has evolved – it’s a shame the showrunners refuse to do the same!

     If Castiel dies in the show I will have nothing to live for

     Cas has to stay. I love him on this show.

  • Anthrax

    We NEED Cas !!! The show is still about Sam and Dean, but CAS is now a very important character too ! Don’t take him back ! This would be a HUGE mistake !!!!!!!!!!

  • Mainevent0536

     I am extremely disappointed and can’t believe they are cutting of Cas if he has always helped Sam and Dean from being killed. I want Cas to be in Season 7, he was awesome.

  • anur

     They just said that he won’t be a regular, i believe he will appear from time to time, so don’t worry, people ;)

  • mary

     he will show up for he is the evil that Sam and Dean will have to fight

  • Tmc05001

    why not?! He is one of the reasons why I watch it

  • Swet_hao

    Cas is interesting, he has to stay.

    Even though I love Supernatural and have loved supernatural since its inception, the show has declined somewhat. Dean and Sam’s “brother” storyline has been repeated, chewed through, and rung out – the chemistry is still there however it no longer feels like that heartwarming brotherly love from the earlier seasons. Not only that, but I have a feeling Sam and Dean’s story has been used up – there’s nothing left to really explore anymore – and if one of them dies one more time and then comes back to life again…come on now.

    Cas is still interesting though and his story is very refreshing. This past season was held together by Cas’s storyline and without it, the season would have been horrible. Kripke knew how to keep the story afloat and now without him, I have a feeling they’re spiraling downwards. If the writers don’t introduce something interesting soon or the direction doesn’t pick back up, then Supernatural won’t last very much longer. As of now, it would be more interesting if we had a spinoff which stared Misha and guest stared the brothers.

    The producers idea to “focus on the brothers” and their poor statement that Supernatural is a story about the brothers is stupid. If we focus on Dean and Sam anymore, we would be looking through them. They need to depend on the new characters they create and not be afraid to broaden their horizons. They completely wasted the characters of Ruby, killed off Bella just as she was getting interesting, slayed Joe and Ellen just as fans started to really like them, completely pulled an OOC of Anna – insulting her character, and now they want to ween out Cas?

    Stupid.

    This is bullshit. Cas is my favorite character on the show. I’m so pissed off. ERRRGH. I love the boys too, and yeah the show revolves around them.. but there are heaps of shows that revolve around one or two characters that also have other regular characters.   Its the other characters who show us how the main characters love, not only each other, but others and show different nuances of the main characters.

    I’m so annoyed. Imagine how unbearable Dawson’s Creek would have been without Pacey and the other side characters? Dawson was annoying on his own… LOL Not that Sam and Dean are annoying, but the other characters make the story richer.  What about Buffy? The main focus was Buffy, but the show would have been shit without Cordelia, Willow, Spike etc.

    BAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

    LMao this is the only time I’ve ever wanted to petition about a show. I am so disappoint.

  • Donutpickyournose

    I’m with you girlfrand. It really is stupid. I’m literally pouting right now.

  • mark

    i think Cas shud be in the show cause he has alot of history with Dean and Sam more so with Dean then Sam but still i think Cas is apart of the team Hell Dean even said they use to be like FAMILY once so you can’t take CAS out and not have him in the show all the time with Dean and Sam becase they’ve went through alot together…

    “Collins will be in the Season 7 premiere, but Gamble will not say how much he will be on the show beyond that, because it would give away too much about what happens in the premiere.”
    That sounds ominous to me… Why would they say that unless they’re not planning to have him on the show anymore after the first episode?
    Think about it- if he was going to stay on it wouldn’t be giving anything away about the plot to just say so, but if he’s going to die then admitting he won’t be in any further episodes *would* be giving it away…
    Please don’t kill off Cas. The show would really lose appeal without him

  • Bbecc

    I think it sucks that they are choosing to go back and focus on the boys for this season. Yes, I get that the shpw is mainly about them, but their story line has come to depend on all the characters around them. I mean, you can only focus on one thing for so long… Might actually be why season 5 was the best. Yes there were brotherly love kind of moments, but there was also a strong “freedom vs. destiny” theme as well. Season 6 was missing an element like that.. They should incorporate an alternate theme as strongly as the theme as family in this upcoming season, just to give the show a bit of freshness…

    I do however, understand why Misha won’t be back as a series regular. He’s the main villian character now… and if he were what the boys were trying to hunt down every episode it would get so boring. I get it, they don’t want to have the main villian in every single episode.

    I do think another character needs to come to the forefront now though. I new one or an old, missed character (I’ve personally got fingers crossed for a return of chuck this season!! XD ) to fill the void, and to help even the odds because of the new, corrupted Cas.

  • Char

    No one said they were killing him off, he just won’t be in every episode, as it has always been. Yes, his character has grown but in order to keep the show going in the same direction they can’t have a character over grow the main characters or change the meaning of the complete storyline. Obviously the boys family story is the main focus because the show has and will always be about their relationship as a family and Cas has taken himself out of that family as of the season finale so it’s time to pull his character back. Cas isn’t the show and if you watch the show because of Cas you are not getting the point of the show and you’re not seeing the full picture. Stop crying through typing about Cas, you will still see him, he will still be part of the storyline, it just won’t ever be all about him because that’s not the show.

  • Rebecca Babysitter

    So glad they are keeping it focused on Sam and Dean (and Bobby, I’m assuming). The whole thing is about them and what they do. If every great character got permanently integrated it would be a freaking Soap Opera- not the amazing Rock and Roll, demon killing tale of 2 brothers on the road.

    I love Cas…still love the boys though

  • MG!

    ?h noooo!!!! I was hoping that we would see him on every episode and that he would be with the boys all the time!!! I understand that the show is focused on Sam and Dean but that doesn’t mean that Cas should play a smaller role!!!! Ooooooohhhh don’t be assbutts plz!!We want Misha on every episode!!

  • Lcollinsatkinson9

    If she kills off Castiel I will not watch the show. As it was Season 6 I only watched the episodes with Castiel. I’m going to give the premier a chance but I Cas is gone so am I and probably most of the Misha Collins fans as well.

  • snufflebum

    This show won’t be the same without Castiel. The writers/producers etc should realise that the fans love the character. In fact I love the episodes that aren’t just Sam & Dean. It was ok in the first couple of Seasons when they were both out for revenge on “Yellow Eyes” but the story has moved on since then. I mean it’s now about “God Castiel” and the fallout from that. Surely Castiel should be a major character if he is the “Bad Guy” and we all know it?? It’s doesn’t make sense to limit the amount of time he is in the show. Grrrrrrr…..sort yourselves out. 

  • BAN

    If you want a spin off show where Misha stars and Sam and Dean are guests, than you should totally check out my fan fic story. It’s entitled “Castiel” and it’s AU, picking up where SPN season 5 left off. You can find it by searching “Castiel Trailer” on the the internet. The link to the story is there.
