16 Characters We Need to Return for Their Shows' Final Seasons

Characters Returning In Final Seasons

With all respect to Thomas Wolfe, you definitely can go home again — especially when you’re a beloved character from a TV show that’s swiftly approaching its series finale.

Now that NBC has confirmed America Ferrera’s return for the one-hour swan song of Superstore (March 25, 8/7c), Team TVLine is taking stock of a few other characters we’d like to see back on TV before their shows permanently fade to black.

Our list ranges from obvious requests, like Shameless‘ Fiona Gallagher (Emmy Rossum) and Mom‘s Christy Plunkett (Anna Faris), to slightly longer shots, like Animal Kingdom‘s dearly departed Smurf (Ellen Barkin) and Last Man Standing‘s original Mandy (Molly Ephraim) and Kristin (Alexandra Krosney).

Scroll down to see which returns we’re hoping for in the near future, then drop a comment with any of your own additions to the list.
