“Supernatural” season 11 already has the stories for eight episodes done, and it’s possible John Winchester will return. Fans have been asking for Dean and Sam’s negligent father to come back, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan is just happy to do so. His youngest son Adam, on the other hand, is still in the cage.

Morgan hasn’t been in the show for 10 years, with his last appearance a non-speaking cameo at the second season finale. During a recent show convention in Las Vegas, however, the 49-year-old actor learnt that thousands of screaming fans at the event wanted him back.

“We do it for our fans, and that’s got such a great fan base that, of course, I want to go back. And I would love to have some resolution for that character and his sons,” Morgan told Collider in an interview earlier in June.

John’s return, should it happen, must not be “forced,” though. Morgan said there should be sense in making the Winchester patriarch appear in the show. His character should be able to have closure with his sons and the show’s fans. The “Watchmen” star would like a solid arc for John, maybe three episodes would do.

“Supernatural” producers are still mum about John’s possible return, but one of them has smashed hopes for another character’s return. Adam Milligan, John’s secret son and Dean and Sam’s (Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, respectively) long-lost brother, will not be back.

The last time Adam made an appearance in the show was during the season 5 finale, in which his body was used as a vessel for Archangel Michael. As Michael and Lucifer (in Sam’s body) were trapped in the cage, it is widely believed that Adam is in the cage with them. Sam, on the other hand, was able to escape, thanks to Castiel (Misha Collins).

Another less popular theory claims Adam might already be in heaven. Apparently, when Castiel interrupted the fight between Michael and Lucifer by temporarily banishing Michael with holy fire, Adam’s body was dispersed, and therefore was killed. His soul might have gone to heaven while Michael reconstructed his body for his own use. The same thing happened to Castiel’s vessel, Jimmy Novak, when Lucifer killed him. Jimmy was sent to heaven, while his body was rebuilt when Castiel was resurrected by God.

But whatever theory proves true, Adam is still not joining the show any time soon. Producer Jim Michaels responded to a fan who asked if Adam, played by Jake Abel, will finally show up.

Michaels also announced that the first eight stories of season 11 are already done. There will be 23 episodes for the upcoming season when the U.S. series returns in October.
