Death in Paradise continues to be a popular crime drama series airing on BBC One. The series is known for introducing new characters on the regular, as well as witnessing some shocking comebacks and departures. Danny John-Jules left after seven years on the show and co-star Ralf Little said he could return.

Could Danny John-Jules return as Dwayne Myers?

Dwayne Myers was one of the original characters on Death in Paradise and was a popular officer on the island of Saint-Marie.

Fans were heartbroken to hear he would be leaving Guadeloupe so he could focus on his stage career.

Jules has not ruled out reprising his role in the future and his possible comeback has been hinted at by another co-star.

DI Neville Parker (Ralf Little) said the former Saint Marie figurehead could return in season 11 which is expected to begin filming later this year.

Speaking to HELLO! Magazine, Little said he had known Jules for many years and he called him an “absolute legend”.

Speaking of his possible return, he said: “He’s a legend of my childhood. Who knows? I’m gonna use the usual phrase and just say look – never say never.”

Season 10 proved that anything is possible after it brought back DI Richard Poole (played by Ben Miller) from the dead.

With this in mind, there is every chance Jules will make a comeback in the upcoming season.

British actor Jules, who is now 60, went on to take part in Strictly Come Dancing after he left the series in 2018.

On the actor’s blog, he also spoke about his new role in the theatre show I’ve Gotta Be Me.

His character in Death in Paradise was a fan-favourite as he was dedicated to his work and was keen to learn from others.

He had plenty of knowledge about the island, having been around for so long, and would often give insight about the community.

Dwayne was the person who knew everyone and he was able to get his hands on anything.

Fans agreed the series would not be the same without him and they are hoping for his return.

Back in 2016, the star spoke out about the popularity of the series and he said it was down to good karma.

Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his character, with one saying: “Dwayne from Death in Paradise is my spirit animal.”

Speaking of the 2019 series, another viewer said: “I’m gonna watch it but idk if I’ll enjoy it- Death in Paradise without Dwayne is not Death in Paradise.” (Sic).

Another fan said: “I don’t think I’ll ever miss anyone more than I miss Dwayne off Death in Paradise.”

Thankfully, his character was not killed off, so there are plenty of ways for him to return.

Dwayne left the series to work on his relationship with his father, Nelson (Ram John Holder) who featured in season seven.

He was still in touch with JP (Tobi Bakare) who has been keeping the rest of the team updated on Dwayne’s whereabouts.

Perhaps Dwayne will be reunited with his former sidekick in one of the season 11 episodes or season 12.

In January 2021 it was announced the series would go on for at least another two seasons.
