“Supernatural” begins production on Season 7 in Vancouver in early July — and reps confirm to Zap2it exclusively that Colin Ford, one of our favorite recurring guest stars, will be returning as young Sam Winchester for the third episode, tentatively titled “The Girl Next Door.”
Brock Kelly, who played opposite Ford as young Dean Winchester, is on deck to return for Season 7 as well. Though contracts have not been officially signed, Kelly’s reps confirm to Zap2it, “There is a strong possibility that he will return.”
The episode, expected to air on October 7, is to be directed by series star Jensen Ackles. It will be the first episode of Season 7 filmed, in order for Ackles to have sufficient prep time.
UPDATE: Warner Bros. tells Zap2it that Kelly will not be appearing in the episode. Reps for Kelly tell us that he is in discussions for future episodes.
