“Supernatural” favorite Jim Beaver will return to the hit CW series for its April 1 episode, Variety has learned exclusively.
In the episode, titled “Inside Man,” Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Castiel (Misha Collins) need a little help from someone in heaven, so they turn to Bobby (Beaver). Elsewhere, Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Rowena (guest star Ruth Connell) face off.
Beaver’s beloved character, Bobby Singer, was killed in the season seven episode “Death’s Door,” but has made several reappearances in spirit form since then. Beaver last appeared on screen in the season nine premiere “I Think I’m Gonna Like It Here” as a manifestation of Sam’s subconscious.
Beaver is currently starring in the play “Verdigris” (which the thesp also wrote) at Theatre West in Los Angeles. He’ll next be seen on the big screen in Guillermo del Toro’s “Crimson Peak,” alongside Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska and Jessica Chastain.
