This should take some of the sting out of Adrianne Palicki’s impending Friday Night Lights departure: The actress has signed on to reprise her role as Sam’s ill-fated ex, Jessica, on Supernatural!

As you know, Jessica was whacked by a demon in the Supernatural pilot. She reappeared at the end of season 2 during Dean’s genie-granting alternate reality head-trip, but hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

Details regarding Palicki’s return engagement are being kept under lock and key, but this much I can tell you: She’s booked for one episode and it’ll air early in the season (but not the season premiere).

Confirmation of her Supe comeback comes just days after EW.com broke the news that Palicki had landed the Jennifer Grey role in MGM’s Red Dawn reboot. She’s also expected to return to FNL this fall for a multi-episode arc to wrap up Tyra’s story.

Short-story-shorter: Girlfriend is busy!
