It seems the Big Man Upstairs might be returning from his extended vacation.

EW has confirmed that Rob Benedict will reprise his role as Chuck in season 11 of Supernatural. And though it isn’t spelled out that Benedict’s Chuck is also God, there’s been speculation to that effect ever since Chuck, the prophet, disappeared in the season 5 finale. In fact, he was last seen when he showed up at the end of the show’s 200th episode in season 10.

And with God’s sister, the Darkness, being the central villain this season, there’s already been a lot of talk about whether God will make an appearance, and furthermore, whether God showing up would help things or only make matters worse. Now, it seems we’ll find out soon enough.

TVLine first reported the news.

Supernatural airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
