After a couple of weeks off, “Supernatural” returns tonight on the CW. Fans have been waiting a month to find out what happens next to the Winchester brothers Sam and Dean.
And fans will be able to enjoy the episodes, knowing the show is secure for one more season on the CW. The series was given an early pick-up by the network a few weeks ago.
The show will be adding a new cast member next fall, but one that is familar to fans. Misha Collins, who has been in a recurring role as angel Castiel told SciFi Wire that he will return for the fifth season as a full-time cast member. Collins then went on to discuss what’s coming up for the rest of season four. Some of this is SPOILER material, so if you don’t want to know, please turn back now.
“There’s going to be a couple much more brutal fight scenes this season, where Castiel, if not wins the fights, at least holds his ground a little better than he has in the past. So, yeah, maybe he’s getting his sea legs,” he said. He also added fans may not get to see his character’s wings by the end of the season. He said they’ve only been shown as shadows and he’s afraid that actually seeing them on-screen might disappoint the fan base.
As for what’s to come next year, Collins said he would be interested in exploring the emotions of his character.
“I have no idea what they’re going to do next year, but since they’ve established that angels can fall and feel emotion and have real human experiences, it stands to reason that they’re at minimum going to flirt with that possibility with Castiel,” Collins said. “It seems like it would heighten the dramatic tension nicely. And it would be really fun to play that as an actor, experiencing that for the first time. Feeling emotion.”
“Supernatural” returns tonight at 9 p.m. EST on the CW.
