There is a pretty fantastic case at this point to bringing the actor back, primarily in that he’s a big name, his character Ben Glenroy was murdered, and we have to understand more of what happened. Of course, the flip side here is that Rudd is a big name, so we have to imagine that there’s going to be a lot of scheduling that needs to be worked out if he returns for flashbacks.

For the time being, we’re lucky to report that there are plans to bring Rudd back for season 3. In a new interview with TVLine, co-creator John Hoffman confirmed as much with the following:
The hope is that he doesn’t get some huge thing that takes him away [from us], but I’m pretty sure we’re in good shape. Our victims play major parts in the season, so we’re really excited to have him be a part of it.
The question of course here comes down to why someone would want Ben dead, and we’re hoping that some light is shed on that early on in season 3. His character does feel like a jerk, and there was clear tension between him and Charles. Clearly, that needs to be explored more down the road.
