Before he was Negan on AMC's the Walking Dead, Jeffrey Dean Morgan acted as Sam and Dean Winchester’s dad on Supernatural.

That's right, Morgan played John Winchester for a few episodes of the show, and last night (Dec. 12,) it was revealed that Morgan was going to be reprising his infamous role.

Morgan wasn’t with the brothers for very long, as he only appeared here and there during the first two seasons of the show before he was ultimately killed off.

Following his death on the show, he hasn’t made any appearances since, but as any fan of Supernatural knows, you shouldn’t count out an actor just because their character died.

Morgan recently expressed an interest in coming back to the show, where he answered in a Twitter Q&A that if the storyline was right, he'd be open to coming back.

Well, it appears that the storyline was good enough for Morgan, as he will be making an appearance in an episode of the show, “Lebanon,” which will air on the CW Thursday, Feb. 7 at 8 PM.

Deadline reported the news last night, where they spoke to the show's executive producer Andrew Dabb. Speaking to the source, Dabb shared:

“We’re incredibly excited to have Jeffrey back for this milestone episode, and think fans will love what we have planned for his character… and a few other surprise guest stars,” Dabb said.

There's not a lot of details regarding the show's milestone 300th episode, but here's what we know so far:

A recent report from TVLine found that the cast and crew will be putting out all the stops for this upcoming milestone episode.

“There’s a little bit of time travel that comes into play in the 300th episode, and we’ll see a different version of Cas,” Misha Collins, who plays Castiel in the series, shared.

Additionally, and even better yet, the show’s executive producer Brad Buckner hinted that fans might be seeing some familiar faces during the show’s episode, but it’s important to note the only confirmation of that was a “maybe.”
