The comeback rumors have long been squashed, and fans are well-aware that Barb is dead on Stranger Things. No matter how many people petition for her return, it's been said that she won't be coming back.
According to executive producer Shawn Levy however, Barb's spirit will be alive and well during the show's upcoming second season.
Variety posted a clip of the interview on their Twitter account Monday morning, and Levy was asked about the Barb rumors.
He definitely said that she couldn't be any more dead than she actually is, but that she will be a heavy influence on season two.
"Her memory, and the search for justice for her, is a big part of season two."
Barb, you may be gone, but you'll never be forgotten.
The second season of Stranger Things will air on October 31, 2017.
