Following a total of 28 years away from the show, Cindy and Ian Beale recently made their return to EastEnders, and more actors are soon to return to Walford.
Chris Clenshaw, the show’s executive producer, recently revealed that a number of other Walford-based characters will soon be making their way back.
Chris was able to “convince” some well-known actors to repeat their legendary roles, thus Albert Square will soon see the return of some recognizable faces.
There will be certain characters returning in the near future, he told the Daily Star. They will shortly be made public. Keep an eye on this.
Following the reappearance of renowned villain Cindy Beale (played by Michelle Collins), he decided to bring back other characters.
Which fan favorites will be returning to the Square? Cindy’s reappearance in June ignited a social media frenzy and increased viewership numbers.
Chris continued, “We have got some new characters coming that are arriving soon,” giving the impression that the year’s finish will be eventful.
Fans were thrilled to witness a brief comeback from Lauren Branning (Jacqueline Joss) and Fatboy (Ricky Norwood), in addition to Cindy and Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt).
Cindy’s plot included Lauren’s homecoming because she was the first person outside of her family to learn that Lauren was alive.
Although he just made a cameo in a flashback sequence, Fatboy also had a role in Cindy’s reenactment.
After Dot’s funeral, when a card bearing the words “Mrs. B, forever in my heart, Arthur x.” was delivered to her house, fans began to believe that he could still be alive.
Shirley Carter (Linda Henry) and her son Dean Wicks (Matt Di Angelo), who has been at the center of two compelling hypotheses in recent weeks, are another character fans have been pleading to return.
Dean could be the target of Linda’s retaliation on Christmas Day, according to one who saw that Dean was Gina Knight’s (Francesca Henry) covert boyfriend.
EastEnders has not yet revealed who will be returning to Walford, but whomever it is will undoubtedly bring turmoil.
