 matthew will not be returning

Ken Corday was interviewed in the recent SOD  about the 50th and the returnees. SOD asked about Matthew since the fans have been clamoring for a return. Sadly, he again said fans saw Jack die after falloing down the elevator shaft and coming back from the dead would be an insult to the viewers. He said the same things in October of last year. Fans know there was no body, and even though André di Mera is back from an on-screen death and as per all the requests on boards and social media thought a return was not insulting. Corday did say, maybe in at future date, though his remarks seem rather shallow a promise.

sitcom project
Gregori Martin, the talented creator of The Bay, posted the following on Facebook, "No, it's not #TheBay yet! Wrapped another day on set of new #sitcom w/ @KristosAndrews [Matthew's The Bay co-star, Peter Garrett] & @matthew_ashford #ThisJustIn." I am assuming this too is a webseries -- though I may be wrong. I also am not sure if Matthew is a castmember of this project or was just a guest star for this particular episode. When I have more information I will updated the page.
