Coronation Street fans were left excited when it was announced that Todd Grimshaw would be making a return, albeit with new actor Gareth Pierce playing him after Bruno Langley was axed.
However new Coronation Street spoilers reveal that his long awaited comeback may be hit by major tragedy when Sean Tully (Antony Cotton) gets some upsetting news next week.
In upcoming episodes, after Todd demands some money from his pals on the street, Sean is left concerned.
Sean searches social media for some sort of clues but is left feeling frustrated.
Billy Mayhew (Daniel Brocklebank) tells Paul (Peter Ash) how worried Sean is, convinced that Todd is in some sort of trouble.
Sean calls around with a birthday present for Paul and tells Billy all about his failed attempts at tracking down the long gone character.
Billy reckons their only option is to go to the police, so they go and report Todd as a missing person.
They get confirmation that Todd is officially on the missing persons' list.
The duo meet up with the Finding People charity who tell them that they'll do everything they can to try and track down Todd.
However it seems to be futile as Sean soon makes a devastating discovery.
He searches through the missing persons' database but soon finds some bad news.
Sean learns that a man's body had been found in the river the day before and he becomes emotional.
Could it really be Todd?
Actor Gareth Pierce will be playing Todd, with him set to make his first on-screen appearance in the autumn.
Speaking of taking over the reigns from Bruno Langley, Gareth said: "I'm thrilled to be joining such an iconic show and to have been entrusted with taking Todd forward into some really exciting storylines.
"It's an honour to be part of the dedicated Coronation Street team in such unprecedented times."
Bruno was dropped from the soap in 2017 due to off-screen behaviour.
