Supernatural's Jim Beaver Returns to Justified

Well this doesn’t bode particularly well for Bobby’s fate on Supernatural.

Jim Beaver has booked a potentially multi-episode return to FX’s Justified, which premieres its third season on Tuesday, Jan. 17, TVLine has confirmed.

The Deadwood alum tweeted on Thursday that he will for certain be back for one episode but could appear in “as many as 7 … maybe more,” reprising the role of Shelby, the manager of the mine where Boyd worked for much of Season 2.
