Souless Supernatural: Misha Collins Won't Be a Series Regular in Season 7

Reducing Misha Collin's role is a mistake on Sera Gamble's part.  She claims to get the fans, but I don't think she does.  Supernatural was a freak of the week show before the angel story arc in season 4, i.e. Castiel (played by Misha Collins).  The angel story line took a relatively good show into the stratosphere.  Now because the writers wrote one mildly amusing western-themed episode, they want to make the 7th season an homage to westerns (see article) without Castiel?  That's just crazy.  The angel storyline was the only thing that salvaged the 6th season.  Castiel's battles and dealings with Crowley were the most interesting part of the slow moving 6th season.  Souless Sam and mean grandpa were getting old...quick.  I'm very disappointed with this news particularly after such a spectacular season finale.  I'll still watch the 7th season, but it's not looking good.

Question: Can you please interview Misha Collins about his reduced Supernatural role next season? My life may depend on it. —Marcia
We tried, but the dude’s not talking. Perhaps he wants to lay low until the storm passes — assuming it does, in fact, pass. “We have passionate fans,” acknowledges exec producer Sera Gamble. “We have fans that have strong opinions about a lot of things that happen on the show. People ask me if I’m worried about a fan backlash [in the wake of Collins' demotion]. We just want to tell a good story and not be redundant and bring you interesting stories that are fresh. Going into Season 7, we have a new, interesting story that we want to tell to you. That’s what’s front of mind right now.”
Question: Now that Misha Collins is no longer a regular on Supernatural, any chance Jim Beaver will get a much-deserved promotion? —Joel
 Doesn’t sound like it. “We have a fantastic relationship with Jim,” says Gamble. “We bring him in as the story demands it. He’s basically a fixture on the show as necessary.”
