While you wait for “Timeless” to return a little bit later this month, we’ve got something else to look forward to: An appearance from one of the greatest “Supernatural” recurring players of all time.
As executive producer Eric Kripke revealed in a post on Twitter below, Jim Beaver (best known for playing Bobby on the CW show) is going to be appearing over the final three episodes of the season. It feels pretty clear to us that this role, whatever it may be, is going to be integral in unraveling the show’s mythology over the course of the remainder of this season, and also setting up at the same time what the second season of the show could be. It hasn’t been renewed just yet, but at the same time we remain hopeful; plus, getting Beaver on board the show at this point has to help it in terms of getting it some more attention.
Since his departure from his day-to-day duties on “Supernatural,” Kripke has also used Beaver for another show in “Revolution.” One of the great things about working with him is clearly that he likes to reuse actors that he appreciates, which means to us that if the show is renewed for a second season, we could see a wide array of other familiar faces, as well. Given that this show films in the same city as “Supernatural” in Vancouver, we’d love for there to be some other fun guest roles here and there. For example, can you get Rob Benedict for an appearance? Could Misha Collins have enough time off to do an episode? We know that Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles aren’t going to have the time, but almost everyone else could be fair game.
When “Timeless” does return, we’re going to see the character of Lucy Preston (Abigail Spencer) take off to the era of the Chicago World’s Fair, though not exactly of her own free will. After all, she was captured by Garcia Flynn, and it’s going to be up to the rest of the team to find her and bring her back. (You can see one of the first photos of this appearance from Flynn over at the link here.)
