First, it was confirmed DS Camille Bordey (Sara Martins) would be back for a two-episode storyline.
Finally, it was announced Ben Miller would be reprising his role as Richard Poole in a special cameo.
With the announcement of all of this exciting news, some viewers were left hoping even more former stars could be returning.
This includes Humphrey as he has some unfinished romantic business with Camille.
However, during a Q&A for the upcoming season, Key confirmed there will be no more cameos apart from those announced.
When asked who was coming back, he confirmed it was only Martins, Miller and Jobert.
Although, he didn’t rule out Humphrey returning at some point in the future.
In response to a question about if Dwayne Myers (Danny John-Jules) or Humphrey could return, he was more coy.

Key said: “Never say never. But, yeah, that’s all I’d say. I’m trying to be all mysterious.
“The joyous thing is that we genuinely all stay in touch.
“I’m in touch with Kris [Marshall] quite often as well.
“I think that because they’ve got such affection for the show, I wouldn’t rule anything out if there was a good story to tell. So who knows?”
While some fans might be disappointed by the news, Key did have some exciting teases about the cameos they will have.
Speaking about Miller’s and Matins’ return to the show, he said: “I met with Sara and I met with Ben.
“I spoke to them about whether they would be willing to give us some time to come back and be part of our 10th year and both of them agreed very quickly.
“I think both felt they had some unfinished business with the show and both wanted to be part of our 10th year.”
Death in Paradise season 10 begins on BBC One on January 7, 2021.
