The season 8 finale date has been revealed to be one week from this coming Wednesday, May 15th! It’s sad, I know, but there more good news to make the end of season 8 more bearable for the SPN family. Misha Collins has been bumped up for recurring guest star to series regular, as he is set to return in season 9 come this fall! We will get to see a lot more of Castiel in season 9 then we have in the current season.
Even with Sam & Dean being the only Men Of Letters left alive, and Sam having to face the final trial of the word of god by curing a demon, things still look good for our boys! Now, no matter what happens in the end of this season, Jensen, Jared and Misha have been confirmed to be returning for next season. As of there would be a show left without team free will! The guys all signed contracts for season 9, and even a season 10 if they get renewed for another one.
Castiel will return with full force come next season, and we will be seeing him in a lot more episodes! It raises many questions you fans may be asking. Is Cas going to have more of a story or will heaven still play a big part in the next season? Now, even with season 8 ending in a week, I can’t help but wonder if this means that the trials/gates of hell storylines will be concluded in this season, or perhaps transitioned into something else completely next fall. It’s currently unknown to us as to whether or not any of the current plot lines will be apart of season 9, but I am guessing that maybe this whole trial thing isn’t going to be the end of demons forever. if it was that easy, then why would the boys keep on fighting for another year to two years? As I said, it’s raises many questions, none of which will be answered until May 15th or next fall.
Fans have remained faithful and excited about the journey our Winchester boys have taken this past year, and the ride isn’t over yet! Try to remain clam, my dear SPN family. I know we have a long and slightly boring summer ahead without our boys, and September just can’t possibly get here fast enough. So, savor the last two episodes and maintain some peace of mind knowing the they will be back, team free will and all! feel free to let your mind wonder about what we may or may not see in terms of season 9. Can they bring back Benny, the sexy vampire with morals? Will Bobby make a reappearance for old times sake? Think on that for awhile, and let us know what your looking forward to the most about the season finale and what you hope to see next fall!
