Supernatural may be moving to a new night this fall - Tuesdays at 9 after The Originals, starting October 15 - but fans will be treated the sight of a familiar face at some point on Season 9:
Jim Beaver has confirmed his impending, unexpected return as Bobby Singer.
"Try not to get excited, but I'm coming back to SUPERNATURAL. For real," the veteran actor Tweeted last night, adding quite the teaser in a follow-up message:
"Read the script. Didn't see this one coming. Whatever you think it is -- it ain't. #Bobbysback"
Bobby was last seen being brought to heaven by Sam, of course, though all angels were expelled to Earth on the Supernatural Season 8 finale. So weigh in now on how he'll get wrapped back up in the lives of the Winchester brothers.
Beaver, meanwhile, has recently appeared on episodes of Mike & Molly, Justified and Dexter.
