Supernatural fans are in for a treat, as a fan favourite is going to Timeless. The good news for the SPN Family is that this move is just temporary. Eric Kripke has confirmed that Misha Collins, who plays angel Castiel, will appear in an episode of Timeless.
NBC’s Timeless is only in its freshman year and has already taken the TV world by storm. Created by Supernatural creator Kripke, the show focuses on three individuals who travel back in time to stop a terrorist from changing events and completely rewriting episode. These are major events in history, including the Hindenburg disaster and the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
Collins will take on the role of Eliot Ness, who will team with the three time travelling heroes, Lucy Prescott (Abigail Spencer), Wyatt Logan (Matt Lanter), and Rufus Carlin (Malcolm Barrett), to help bring down 1931 Chicago gangster Al Capone. Kripke shared that as soon as the idea of Eliot Ness’ character came up he immediately thought of Collins to take the role.
Once the news broke about Collins’ involvement on the screen, the actor tweeted about it to his fans. There is the chance that ratings will soar just for this one episode, as the whole of the SPN family tune in to see their favourite angel in action in 1931 Chicago.

Supernatural fans have watched Collins portray the angel Castiel for the last 8.5 seasons. Originally brought in as a temporary, throwaway character, Castiel grabbed the hearts of the viewers and became a permanent part of the SPN Family. The show wouldn’t be what it is today without him.
This isn’t the first time the character Ness has come to one of Kripke’s shows, either. Supernatural Season 7 featured Ness in a storyline, with the character played by X-Files’ Nicholas Lea.

As well as that, Jim Beaver will make an appearance in Timeless. The actor better known to Supernatural fans as Bobby Singer will appear for three episodes at the end of Timeless Season 1. He will play NSA Agent Neville and will lock heads with Agent Christopher.
Collins will appear in Timeless Season 1 Episode 15, which will air on February 13, 2017. Tune in to find out whether the time travels can stop Garcia Flynn from changing more of history.
