fans can rest easy this summer thanks to Zap2It
. The site confirmed that both Jim Beaver and Misha Collins will be
back for season 6. It's unclear if that means for one episode or most of
the season, but whatever the case, Sam and Dean won't be alone.
The bigger question is how. Chuck's closing narration mentioned that
Dean and Bobby's farewell marked the last time they'd see each other for a
long while, which might mean that Chuck isn't the infallible deity I
thought he was. Is Chuck Shurley God?>>
Castiel was last seen heading back to Heaven to take control of the chaos left in Michael's absence, so somehow the new sheriff of Heaven will worm his way back into Dean's heart. It definitely means that angels aren't leaving anytime soon.
Most importantly, more Cas and Bobby means more Misha Collins and Jim Beaver, which is a good thing. They've become as much a part of Supernatural
as Sam and Dean, so it would've been hard to imagine a show without them. The show will already have one big change for season 6 (creator Eric Kripke stepping down as show-runner and is being replaced by writer/producer Sera Gamble). Having some familiar faces around should make the transition a lot easier.See More
