Actor Jim Beaver will once again reprise his role in this season’s 16th episode as beloved surrogate father to the world’s hottest demon hunters, TVLine.com reports.
Wait, there’s more! Bobby’s late BFF Rufus (Steven Williams) is returning too! EP Jeremy Carver told TVLine.com that the upcoming episode will feature the “wonderful relationship between Bobby and Rufus” in flashbacks as Sam and Dean (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles respectively) re-visit one of Bobby and Rufus’ cold cases.
Rufus met his maker in the season 6’s “And Then There Were None.” Fan favorite Bobby died in the season 7’s fantastic “Death’s Door” but has returned several times, most recent being last season’s “Inside Man.”
All new episodes begin on January 20.
