Ben Miller is set to make a shock return to Death in Paradise after he was killed off in series three.
But, how you ask? Well, we are wondering the same thing.
Ben, who played DI Richard Poole in the BBC cop drama, left the series after his character got murdered by one of his former university friends.
The detective met his horrific ending after being killed with an ice pick, although, in true Richard fashion, he even helped his former colleagues to solve his own murder.
BBC One and production company Red Planet Pictures confirmed the exciting news that Ben would be returning as Richard for a cameo appearance during the tenth anniversary series.
They haven’t explained how he will come back from the dead, but either way, we are pretty excited about it.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk last year about the reason behind his exit, Ben began: ‘The Death In Paradise cast turnover is so high.
‘It has been amazing for me personally, but when it came out it got battered, it had the worst reviews of anything that I have ever been in.
‘I wasn’t sad to leave, it was a great ride and I felt like it was a good time to leave. I was proud to have launched it and it’s amazing because it’s now all over the world.
‘It is a comedy on some levels and that’s the reason it got such bad reviews from critics.’
While Josephine Jobert will be coming back as D.S. Florence Cassell.
Death in Paradise is available on BBC iPlayer.
