The fifth season of Supernatural has already brought a lot of familiar faces back.  Jessica, Ellen, Jo and Rufus have all made return appearances, and now there’s another very familiar face finding its way back to the show.

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains information about upcoming Supernatural episodes.  Stop reading if you want to avoid being spoiled.

According to his official Twitter account, Chad Lindberg said that he’s returning to the set in January to film an episode of Supernatural.  In case you forgot, Chad Lindberg played Ash.

That’s right, the mullet-wearing techno geek from the Roadhouse is back.  Sure, he died in the fire that burned the Roadhouse to the ground, but death hasn’t stopped Supernatural before.

So how do you want Ash to come back?  A vengeful spirit?  A hallucination?  A flashback?  Or maybe he faked his own death in the fire and Ash has secretly been alive the entire time.  However they do it, Ash is coming back, so get ready.
