'War of the Worlds' Season 3 may not necessarily see all the key characters return. Daisy Edgar-Jones's Emily was one of the pivotal figures in Seasons 1 and 2, but her appearance in the upcoming season comes with a question mark. In the finale of the second season, she was shown to be killed by Bill (Gabriel Byrne), a necessary sacrifice that helps humanity see another day.

That said, there was also the concept of time travel involved, making it tricky when it comes to retconning a character. Those who watched 'War of the Worlds' Season 2 will know that Bill travels back in time and leads the still-blind Emily (Edgar-Jones) to the rooftop of a building and tells her the visions of the dead humans she has is from the future and that he needs to stop it from coming to fruition. He then pushes her off the roof killing her.

Will Daisy-Edgar Jones return as Emily in 'War of the Worlds' Season 3?

To start with, IMDb lists Edgar-Jones's name only for the first two seasons. What can be seen in her bio are details of her upcoming projects, 'Where the Crawdads Sing' and 'Under the Banner of Heaven'. Adding to this is the fact that the synopsis hints at an entirely new plotline, far different from the previous installments' storylines. However, with time travel involved, there's always a chance that she might appear in a flashback role. If she does come back, then chances are some of the fan favorites who were killed off may return as well.
