His character might have already died but that hasn't stopped celeb gossipers from speculating that Bassam Kousa will be returning to popular Syrian series 'Bab Al Hara' (The Neighborhood's Door).
The traditional drama, which depicts the real lives of people in the olden days, has so far steered clear of any 'back from the dead' plot lines. But recent rumors in the Arab celebosphere have got fans of the show geared up for a return performance from the Syrian star.
Now Bassam has left fans sorely disappointed by revealing there is no truth to the gossip.
Viewers of the small screen drama are left hoping that all of the excitement will encourage makers of the show to consider including some paranormal activity to spice up upcoming episodes.
