Castiel is about to have one of his basic human needs met.
Shannon Lucio (The O.C.) has been tapped to guest star on Supernatural as a love interest for Misha Collins’ newly-anthropomorphic alter ego, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Lucio’s character, April Kelly, turns up in Season 9′s third episode, airing Oct. 22.
At Comic-Con over the summer, Collins teased that the ex-angel would be submerged in the “whole gamut of the human experience” this season, including — but not limited to — “eating, defecating and fornicating.”
Fun fanboy fact: Lucio appears in the premiere episode of ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Supernatural returns Wednesday, Oct. 8.
