Now that most people have watched Star Wars: The Last Jedi already, many fans are waiting for the next chapter in the new trilogy which is Episode IX releasing in December 2019. People are already guessing which characters might return.

Bear in mind, major spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi are written in this article. Don't read this if you don't want to know about big spoilers.

Anyway for those of you that have watched The Last Jedi already, you might know that Snoke's body got cut in half by Kylo Ren using Anakin Skywalker's old lightsaber.

By watching the film, you can clearly see that the character died in gruesome fashion.

However, Star Wars is a science fiction franchise and there's a possibility characters can return back from the dead.

Slash Film had a chance to interview Snoke's actor Andy Serkis and his comments below give us hints that the character could still return.

Look, it's Star Wars, so you never know how life, or whether life can be come back to or not. Whether you can be resuscitated or brought back. I was shocked. Dramatically, it felt absolutely right for that moment in the film, so I didn't question it. I just think it's a very, very important scene, so I didn't question it. But I do, I know it's left fans feeling like, that they were really searching for something there. And what I'm saying is, who knows?

Judging by his answer and response, I feel the most feasible way Snoke could come back is as a Force Ghost.

Currently, only Jedi are able to learn to become Force Ghosts in the Star Wars universe, but who's to say Sith cannot become ghosts too?

Personally, I'd love to see Snoke permanently dead to leave Kylo Ren as the sole main bad guy in Star Wars: Episode IX. It's a bit cliche having an old man pulling the strings all of the time as we have seen that before thanks to Emperor Palpatine in the previous two Star Wars trilogies.
