‘Supernatural’ season 8 spoilers: First look at Misha Collins in purgatory

Do you want to see what Castiel is up to in Purgatory on the eighth season of “Supernatural”? Well, let’s just say that we have some good news coming your way: you are not going to be waiting for too much longer.

As you can see in some of the photos below, our famed angel is going to look more than just a little bit weary while trapped with Dean (Jensen Ackles), and we also have our first look here at Benny the vampire (Ty Olsson). As we saw in the first sneak peek for the season premiere, the season is actually going to start off with Dean out of purgatory and reunited with his brother; with that in mind, a good chunk of this story is really going to be about how he manages to get out of here so that he can ultimately rejoin the real world.

Collins is going to have a considerably larger presence in the upcoming season, and it is a little unclear at the moment just how many episodes we are going to see Olsson appearing in as his new character. There are also some more new faces coming up in one of the show’s worlds this year, including Amanda Tapping as Naomi, an angel who is completely different from any that we have seen on this show before in the past seven seasons.

What do you think about these photos, and do you think that Dean in purgatory is going to create a pretty interesting story for the season? We want to hear some more of your thoughts below! If you want to see a funny new video featuring the likes of Ackles alongside Jared Padalecki, be sure to head on over to the link here.
