Our beloved Castiel is returning! He is coming back to Supernatural for at least three episodes starting on March 23, and Misha Collins spoke about what we can expect, and what Cas will be, when he reappears.
Collins said that he is still playing Castiel, despite the fact that when we last saw him his body had been destroyed by the Leviathans. Cas is not returning as a Leviathan, but "he has changed."
"There's a kind of big experience that is being kicked off at the end of my first episode. Cas is going to go through yet another transformation and on to another kind of struggle and journey. Once again, he'll be put through the wringer."
Poor Cas! But despite their troubles when we last saw him, Dean is very glad to see Cas now. Between Bobby's death and “Sam [being] in really dire straits…Dean is definitely looking to lean on the character for help."
As for whether we might see Cas in Season 8 if the show is renewed, Collins said "there's no reason why it couldn't happen…I have been resurrected from the dead around four times. So no amount of death or destruction seems to be insurmountable in the Supernatural universe."
Are you as excited as I am to be seeing Cas again? Less than 2 weeks to go!
