This is definitely news worth celebrating! We were sad to say goodbye to Misha Collins as his storyline came to a close after two seasons on “Supernatural” as rogue angel Castiel, but we are thrilled to report that Collins will be back on The CW this winter.
Collins has snagged an exciting gig on “Ringer” alongside Sarah Michelle Gellar and… Sarah Michelle Gellar. He’ll play Dylan, a man who knew Siobhan (Gellar) and Bridget (uh, Gellar) back when the identical twins lived in Tahoe. TV Guide reports that Dylan is part of the reason that the sisters became estranged as Bridget’s downward spiral worsened and Siobhan headed for the glitz of NYC.
He’ll appear in episode 14, which will air in 2012.
The last time we saw Collins on “Supernatural,” his character had been commandeered by monsters and walked into a lake, never to surface. “Supernatural” E.P. Sera Gamble has said that she does hope to work with Collins again on the show. At this time, there are no concrete plans for Castiel to appear again this season, but we’ve got our fingers crossed.
