'Supernatural' scoop: Misha Collins promoted to series regular

The CW / Today

Well, this is "Supernatural" news to set our hearts aflutter. Misha Collins, who plays anguished angel Castiel on the CW drama, will return as a series regular for season nine.

"I don't think the feathers to the offices campaign was what saved the angel, but it does look like i'm going to be a regular for season 9," the amusing actor tweeted Monday.

Castiel has been a fan favorite ever since his introduction in season four. His death in season eight sparked outrage among supporters of the socially awkward angel, who was resurrected -- along with his rocking trenchcoat -- this season.

Like co-star Jensen Ackles, Collins will stretch his wings behind the camera: He's also set to direct an episode in the ninth season of the cult hit, which was officially renewed Feb. 11.

"Supernatural" airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on The CW.
