Bobby Singer remains the only character besides Sam and Dean to have appeared in every season of Supernatural. He’s played by the talented and versatile actor Jim Beaver. His record will remain unbroken with an appearance scheduled for Season 11. Bobby will appear alongside irascible hunter Rufus Turner (Steven Williams) in a series of flashbacks in episode 16.
Seeing Bobby again will be a great treat for fans, but having both Bobby and Rufus should turn things up to 11. Rufus appeared in in Seasons 3 through 7, but our favorite appearance of these crafty hunters was in the hilarious “Weekend at Bobby’s” (S06E04).
In an interview with TV Line, Executive Producer Jeremy Carver describes the return of Bobby and Rufus:
“[Sam and Dean] are going to be investigating an old case that was once investigated by Bobby and Rufus. There’s a lot of great throwbacks to things that happened [during season 5, including] the wonderful relationship between Bobby and Rufus. That’s going to be a really neat episode.”
