A new teaser video featuring Castiel in all of his relentless and evil glory has been unveiled by the CW. Plus get the latest news on what Mark Sheppard’s tight lip response to season 7 questions, and the upcoming appearance of Buffy alumni Charisma Carpenter and James Marster.
With Supernatural season 7 gearing up for its September 23rd return, fans and the media are adamant to see where Misha Collins’ character Castiel stands, as well as his cohort Crowley.
Unfortunately, it looks like spoilers from either Collins or Sheppard aren’t in the stars. Both cast members are keeping a tight lid of what’s to come for the King of Hell and the new God. Per Boomtron, Sheppard had this to say about Castiel and his character.
“Look at the Season 7 trailer [shown at Comic-Con]. There’s a shot of me in the trailer, so obviously I must appear somewhere at the beginning of the season, doing something. You never know — maybe I appear for five seconds and get blown up? [Laughs] You never know, man.”
Sheppard also added that the evil uprising of Cas (whose episode appearances are unknown at this point) may not be a heavenly promotion.
“It’s not really a promotion, is it?” Sheppard asks. “He managed to consume those souls, so we’ll see what happens as a result. I think Crowley’s in the ‘Better you than me, mate’ camp — if he gets a chance to comment on it!”
Meanwhile, some additional news coming down the pike when it comes to Supernatural’s new year is the reunion of Buffy alum’s Charisma Carpenter, who played Cordelia on the show, as well as James Marster, known as Spike. Together the two have been tapped to guest star as a married couple in the episode entitled “Shut Up, Dr. Phil.” Carpenter will reportedly play an angry witch, who wreaks havoc on the locals in her small tow. Marster will play her husband.
Don’t forget Supernatural returns Sept. 23rd on The CW. In the meantime watch the Season 7 promo for the first episode of the season entitled “Meet the New Boss” below where Castiel tells Sam and Dean “Be thankful for my mercy. If you rise up, I will strike you down.”
