Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) will get a blast from the past in “Supernatural’s” upcoming 11th season. The CW’s enduring horror series has cast Nate Torrence as Sully, Sam’s imaginary friend from childhood, Variety has learned exclusively.

Sully appears in episode 1108, titled “Just My Imagination,” because he needs Sam and Dean’s (Jensen Ackles) help. The episode will be directed by “Supernatural” alum Richard Speight Jr., who memorably played the angel Gabriel (and moonlighted as The Trickster) in various episodes between seasons two and nine. Speight and fellow “Supernatural” fan favorite Rob Benedict also moderated the show’s 2015 panel at San Diego Comic-Con, and are currently working on a crowdfunded webseries called “Kings of Con” which raised almost $300,000 earlier this year.

Torrence was most recently seen in Fox’s midseason comedy “Weird Loners,” and previously appeared on HBO’s “Hello Ladies,” ABC’s “Mr. Sunshine” and NBC’s “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.” He can currently be heard as the voice of Ferguson on Disney XD’s “Stars and The Forces of Evil.” Film projects have included “Get Smart,” “My Best Friend’s Girl,” “She’s Out of My League” and “Hello Ladies: The Movie.”

Torrence is repped by Truhett Garcia Management, UTA and Lev Ginsburg.

“Supernatural” season 11 premieres Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 9 p.m. on The CW.

    “I’ve never seen an entire episode of this show.” You should’ve stopped talking after that.

  4. Dunstan says:

    Full disclosure: I’ve never seen an entire episode of this show. But what I have seen is lame, cliched and boring. The fact that it’s been on for 11 seasons (?) is mind-numbing.

      You cannot comment on a show you have never watched, except to say it was not your cut of tea! For many of us, it most certainly is an extremely worthwhile form of entertainment with very talented young men!!!!!!!

    Innnnnteresting. It’s either going to be a great or very weird episode. Glad Richard is directing, though – I love it when the guys do! Jensen’s episodes are always great, and the one that Misha directed last season was SUCH a beautifully-shot episode.

      You’ve never watched an “entire” episode but what little, out of context, god knows where in the serialized story arc of the season part you have seen is blah…blah…blah…
      Ok well thank you for that detailed informed critique of a show that has been wildly popular for 11 years that apparently you have never watched.
