This can be filed under "What," but stranger things have happened in Bon Temps. Someone who we came to love on HBO's "True Blood," but left us in a fiery goodbye is returning.

TVLine reports that Allan Hyde, who played Godric, will return for Season 4. 

Godric was Eric's ( Alexander Skarsgard) maker, who felt his physical journey on earth was over and walked into the sun for a dramatic death. He reappeared in a vision to Eric in the Season 3 finale. 

Creator and executive producer, Alan Ball, didn't tell the site what form we'd see the former vampire sheriff in when he returns, but did say that we'll see "a different side of Godric."

Is there life after the undead? If anyone knows, it would be the very Zen Godric.

What side of Godric do you think we'll meet in Season 4?
