TVLine Items: Supernatural Vet Visits Timeless, Bigger Fuller House and More

Jim Beaver Timeless

It was only a matter of time: Supernatural alum Jim Beaver will reunite with his former boss on Eric Kripke’s NBC drama Timeless — and his character has a secret!

Beaver will appear in the final three episodes of the time-traveling series’ freshman season as NSA Agent Neville, who comes to Mason Industries to lock horns with Sakina Jaffrey’s Agent Christopher, TVLine has learned. (Kripke first announced the casting via Twitter.)

Neville is “harboring a dark secret,” Kripke teases, adding, “I refuse to make a TV show that doesn’t have Jim Beaver in it. He vastly improves everything I write.”

In addition to his role as Bobby Singer on Supernatural, Beaver previously worked with Kripke on Revolution.

Timeless returns with new installments Monday, Jan. 16, at 10/9c on NBC.
