Chatting at a Sanditon Q&A back in 2019, he said: "Would I go back, and do a cameo in Death in Paradise? Unequivocally yes." The show's executive producer Tim Key admitted that they didn't have plans to include him ahead of season nine, but who knows what the upcoming series holds!
Could Kris make a surprise return in season ten?
Chatting to Digital Spy ahead of the last series, Tim said: "I see him from time to time anyway. He's like everyone – you know, he had a great time on the show. And if we had the right story, I'm sure he'd come back. It could happen. Kris is great. But whether we're planning it or not, is a different thing. Right now, that's not on the table. But it could be. Who knows?"
Kris left the show back in 2017

Ralf Little, who plays the lead detective Neville Parker, has previously spoken about how much he'd enjoy acting opposite Kris in the series, telling the Express: "We would have a lot of fun... I worked with Kris before, so we know each other pretty well."
