Things are heating up over at Supernatural.  We’ve already heard news that Adrianne Palicki will return as Sam’s dead girlfriend from the Pilot and news that Lucifer has been cast, but now comes more news that makes season 5 sound like it’s getting back to basics.

Meg is coming back, or rather, the demon that possessed Meg will return for Supernatural season 5.  Eric Kripke told TV Guide Magazine that he’s been curious about what happened to the missing demon, and it seems he’s finally come up with a way to bring her back.  However, she won’t be quite the same.

The old Meg Nicki Aycox is busy on the new TNT drama Dark Blue, so when the Meg demon returns, she’ll be played by Rachel Miner, who received a Daytime Emmy nomination for her work on Guiding Light and was briefly married to actor Macauley Culkin.

With Meg and Jessica both returning, it feels as though Eric Kripke is still treating this like a final season, using symmetry to bring back a lot of elements from the very beginning.  The premiere of Supernatural season 5 is still more than two months away, but with all this news, the excitement is building.
