"She is a presence in Nate's consciousness, much the same way his father is," TV Guide Online quotes Alan Ball, the creator of HBO's quirky funeral-home drama, as saying.
"Actual physical death doesn't necessarily mean somebody's not going to be on the show," he added, noting Nate (Peter Krause)'s wife will return for a handful of new episodes when the new season starts in June.
Fisher family patriarch Nate Sr. (Richard Jenkins), Nate's father, was killed in the first episode of the drama, but has returned to converse with his family numerous times over the last three seasons. Corpses the funeral directors work with on the show are also known to briefly return from the dead to tell their stories as well.
