The actor tweeted the news of his surprising return Monday night:
Try not to get excited, but I'm coming back to SUPERNATURAL. For real.—

Last viewers saw, Sam was transporting Bobby to Heaven. In the season finale, all of the angels upstairs were expelled to Earth, prompting Beaver — at the Critics Choice TV Awards in June — to give TVLine this (prophetic?) answer about a possible return to the CW series: “Where did this last season end up? Heaven, right? And where’s Bobby… ?”
Beaver’s other recent TV credits include Mike & Molly, Justified and Dexter.
Supernatural returns Oct. 15 in its new time slot, Tuesdays at 9/8c.
Supe fans, are you excited? And do you think Beaver’s shock at the script rules out the fallen theory? Hit the comments!Follow @VladaGelman
