supernatural season 10 misha collins returning 'Supernatural' Season 10: Misha Collins officially returning as series regular It’s official — Cas is back!

Misha Collins will be returning to “Supernatural” next season as a series regular, The CW confirms to Zap2it. That means Season 10 will feature as much of the angelic ally to the Winchesters that fans could want.

Collins joined the long-running CW drama back in Season 4 as a recurring character, when angels were first introduced into the “Supernatural” canon. Then, he was promoted to series regular for Seasons 5 and 6, and was demoted down to special guest star for Season 7 and 8. He was bumped back up to being a series regular for the current Season 9.

Castiel’s absence in Season 7 was due to the fact that after absorbing all the souls in Purgatory and declaring himself “God,” the Leviathans inside him seemingly killed him, and that set free the big bad villains of the season. Season 8 featured more of the fan-favorite angel after he returned from Purgatory, but he was still in less than half of the season.

When Zap2it asked Collins if he wanted to return for Season 10 back in March after news broke of “Supernatural’s” early renewal, he was optimistic. “I know that the writers are still hashing out the end of this season and where they want to take the story line for next season,” Collins told us. “But I can tell you that I would very much like to be a part of Season 10, but I haven’t been approached by production about Season 10. So I don’t know where things are going for me yet. We shall see.”

Looks like both Collins and the fans got their wish. Are you excited for more Castiel next season? Vote in our poll below:

“Supernatural” airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
