As Castiel

“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,” producer Sera Gamble tells TVLine. “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.”

Gamble confirms that Castiel will appear on the seventh season premiere, but she wouldn't reveal anything beyond that.

The finale cliffhanger “is a very pivotal moment in Cas’ development,” Gamble says, adding that the character is “transformed" and saying: “Basically, that’s what we’ll be exploring next season, so there’s just a big change.”

ive been watching since the beginning if cast is gone I swear i'll stop I mean damn an bobby to


I am not suprised that Castiel is out as a season regular as they explored him being one of the big villians in season 6.


well i have to say this is not good news:( b4 the arrival of castiels character i was so so about supernatural, it was a good show ofc but the character of sam and dean just didnt grap me, only viewing if i could remember it was on, since his arrival ive viewed it religiously just for him if they kill him off i WILL NOT watch again but i dont think they will. more castiel plzzzzzz


It was Castiel's arrival that made me check the series out on daytime tv. If he gets killed....as much as I like Sam and Dean...I think I'll become a partimer myself. I hate being jerked around.


@Mac: Thank you. :)


@Juccatturia Mq: I don't understand what nationality has to do with anything. Also, neither posts from Aries93 nor posts from Sharon were very long, they just shared their opinion. I don't like that there won't be much of Cas next season, but I trust that the show will still be as amazing as I believe it always has been.


Really not at all happy with this. If they kill of Cas I don't know if I could really even forgive them. I am still trying to figure out what the did with the finale.


Season 6 = the season they stole from Buffy S6 and Angel S4. Neither one of which was actually any good. Shape it up, guys. And with that Lisa-Ben cop-out (you know, not actually killing them?) - if they come back, ever, and Cas gets killed off and not saved, I'm completely done. Because then all I have to look forward to is Sam-centric crap.


Supernatural TV Show is a good show and there is a big change I can see as you have mentioned in your post...


o next serson should be about trying to save Castiel. You know Dean would be driven to do that. Also in spite of the Lisa Ben [had me screaming no at the tv] wipe I don't see that as as finished as others think it is. I have visions [especially after all the demon said] of Ben actually being Dean's son and entering the family business somewhere down the road.
