If you look at the vast majority of TV shows out there, fans would be up in arms about the notion of someone coming back into the world of the show after dying. “It’s just not realistic,” many of them would babble on, saying that a fictional world needs to have its own set of limitations.
In the case of some programs out there, they are clearly correct. However, “Supernatural” is a different sort of beast with Heaven, Hell, other worlds, and infinite possibilities. The imaginative quality of it is one of the very reasons why this show has become so popular in the first place. Plus, they have clearly already brought people back (see Castiel) after what appears to be certain death. Why not do the same thing in season 9 with someone else … such as Bobby?
At the moment, executive producer Jeremy Carver is not necessarily denying a return to the show for Jim Beaver, who appeared in one episode this past season in which his character was transferred out of Hell. As a matter of fact, he even said the following about the possibility while speaking in a brand-new interview with Screen Rant:
“You know, we were saying all season, ‘You never know what’s going to happen to Bobby,’ and I think we’ve found a – I can’t believe I’m going to say this word – believable way to bring him back from Hell. I think now that Bobby is presumably in Heaven that it certainly does open up the question of whether or not we might see him again.’”
It is clear that the show’s producers and Beaver still have a strong relationship. He was one of the actors who appeared at the Comic-Con event last summer, and this was with his participation in the new season in question.
What do you think: Could Bobby’s return to “Supernatural” be a great thing? The show is airing on Tuesdays next year if you have not heard, and there is plenty more news on this very subject over here.
