Supernatural Season 11: Jim Beaver Set to Return — and He's Got Company

Supernatural is going back in time to Season 5, with an assist from fan fave Bobby Singer — and another hunter pal.

Jim Beaver will reprise his role as the Winchesters’ beloved father figure in an upcoming Season 11 installment, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Supernatural Jim Beaver ReturnsThe actor — who was last seen on the CW series providing help from Heaven in Season 10’s “Inside Man” — will appear via flashbacks in Episode 16, alongside Steven Williams as hunter Rufus (who was killed during Season 6).

“[Dean and Sam] are going to be investigating an old case that was once investigated by Bobby and Rufus,” in what would have been Season 5, executive producer Jeremy Carver tells TVLine.

“There’s a lot of great throwbacks to things that happened” during that season, the EP continues, including “the wonderful relationship between Bobby and Rufus. That’s going to be a really neat episode.”

Supernatural returns Wednesday, Jan. 20 at 9/8c.

  1. Debbie says:

    YES! We’ve missed Bobby.

  2. Love!! Bobby & Rufus had great chemistry.

  3. M Simons says:

    Oh well, thought he was coming back from Heaven full-time. Anything is possible in that show. Love it.

  4. Dan says:

    I love this idea. We never did find out what happened in Omaha…

  5. Denny says:

    Yes! DAMN IT, YES!
    Come home Bobby!

  6. Elle says:

    I hope Carver and Co. remembered Bobby was in a wheelchair in season 5.

    • Rob Horine says:

      This could be when Crowley gave Bobby the use of his legs back. At that time in S5, all hell was breaking loose.

      • Dan says:

        It probably wasn’t in that time frame, as Bobby went on that mission to destroy the Croatoan virus with Sam and Castiel almost immediately after he got the use of his legs back. Then there was the big showdown with Michael and Lucifer at Stull before Sam jumped into the pit. Anything after that technically doesn’t qualify as season 5.
        I’ll laugh so hard if they have Bobby walking/running around in this episode. Surely even Jeremy Carver wouldn’t screw up canon that badly, right?

    • Phoenix5634 says:

      Bobby got the use of his legs back before he died… Yes definitely cuz he died fighting the Leviathans’ alpha, and he had the use of his legs then.

  7. Carrie says:

    YESSS!!!

  8. Jelena says:

    Thought he’s coming back from Heaven to help the boys again … But then again it’s Supernatural. God, I miss Bobby sooo much :(

  9. What about Jeffrey Dean Morgan ?

    • C Moore says:

      Since JDM will be staring as Negan in The Walking Dead this season it’s highly unlikely he’ll have time to return to Supernatural anytime soon…but one can hope.

      • Pat says:

        they have different shooting schedules so actually it would be easy. Supernatural wraps shooting by May or so and The Walking dead doesn’t start shooting again until May or so. So Perfect in between time for him to return.

  10. ninamags says:

    Yay! Bobby and Rufus. That’s great! If anybody should have gotten a spin-off it could’ve been those two.

  11. Carla Krae says:

    Yay! Can’t wait!

  12. dammit i cant afford Rufus and his 250 dollar bottle of Johnny Walker BLue!

  13. i cant afford Rufus and his 250 dollar bottle of Johnny Walker Blue!

  14. T1gerlilly says:

    I can see the Bobby/Rufus fanfic from here. ‘Cause we all know how close they got after their wives passed.

  15. Cynthia says:

    I wish they would bring Bobby, back permanently.

  16. YES!

    A kurva kibaszott anyátokat, akkor is káromkodni fogok, faszfejek.

  17. Robinmblake says:

    So kool I’m excited can’t wait to watch. I wished the 20th would hurry up and get here.

  18. Dawn G says:

    Cant wait to see this next season of sn

  19. Pat says:

    Hooray for a chance to once again see Bobby. I just wish it was permanent but I know that would be unrealistic.

  20. Woot! Thanks for getting some good scoop here!

  21. Bobby S. says:

    Hey there this is Bobby, they burned my bones and disposed of all my personal attachments so how could you idjits believe I was coming back? Geez so many Idjits!

  22. Rufus and Bobby never should have been killed off in the first place. They deserve their own spinoff. They are more interesting than the likes of Claire, Rowena, and Jody Mills.

  23. Jeff says:

    Very cool, and I do hope they remember he was in a wheelchair during most of the season.

    Though, man, I just wish they would bring him back full time at this point.

  24. shashin says:

    bring back jo harvelle

  25. Kimberly says:

    I love bobby. Glad he’s coming back. Wish an angel would bring him back for good.

  26. Pamela says:

    Dean and Sam cannot carry that series alone, the show needs characters like Bobby and Rufus or any actors with acting skills. As much as I like the show, Padelecki is adequate at best and Ackels has potential but his character is limited. I’m happy to see Bobby and Rufus back, they need to stay.

  27. Phoenix5634 says:

    Yes! Bobbys’ back! I think it’s safe to say we all missed him!

  28. Phoenix5634 says:

    Lol so far 100% positive comments for Bobby returning. Haha no surprise there, we all love Bobby! Can’t wait!

  29. Love that Bobby and Rufus are coming back. Fingers cross that it’s going to be the Omaha case.

  30. Bailey H says:

    Cool they should bring back Ellen and Joe mostly joe

  31. Simone says:

    Yay! Bobby… And Rufus! That’s awesome :D

  32. Regina Coburn says:

    Oh so excited love Bobby and Rufus. Will be looking forward to this episode for sure. Wish they could stay though….. Super fan here…. also we need Charlie – somehow…… love her too.

  33. michael says:

    Looking forward to it. Miss bobby and Rufus

  34. Guest says:

    BOBBY!!!!!!!!!! Yay :D those writer were igits killing off one of the best characters on tv period! And Rufus.. Life is complete :)

  35. Raphael says:

    Yayyy wish they’d bring John Winchester back too. Love Bobby and Rufus!! Why i why can’t they come bk from the dead 😀

  36. Chris miller says:

    Supernatural is the best TV show on today there is a reason it’s been on for so long. Great actors and story lines u aren’t getting anywhere else. Continue on our wayward sons looking foward till Jan 20 to see how Sam gets out of the cage

  37. Karen says:

    Wow. Maybe if the show hadn’t killed these two great characters to start with, they could have kept using them without having to go to often ridiculous lengths (ghost!Bobby).

  38. lynnbo says:

    I just watched this episode… will be interesting to see this unfold..

  39. Kristina says:

    Yay! Still holding out hope they’ll find a way to bring him back full-time; his death is still the one I hate most.

  40. Kathy says:

    It was beyond stupid to kill him in the first place. Charlie, too.

  41. Sylvia C says:

    Bobby and Rufus and Ellen and Joe in a Ghostfacers episode that would be something.
    I miss Charley And Kevinthough too

  42. Johnny says:

    Does anyone no what date season 11 coninues on cw?

  43. Brenda Wilkins says:

    YESSSSS!!!!! I LOVE Bobby Singer!!! It’s so about time they bring Bobby back again!! He brings such chemistry, heart, and humor to the show! “Idgits!!”

  44. Lilo says:

    My kids laugh at me when I say Idjits is back. Cant wait to see it!!

  45. Sherri says:

    I am just happy they are continuing with supernatural I love this show, I have even bought seasons 1-10 they are my bedtime story lol.

  46. JJ says:

    Yes!! I’m so excited.
    Now we need to see Jo again too.
