There’s a chance we haven’t seen the last of Snoke, as we may learn more about him in Star Wars: Episode IX…
One of the most talked about moments from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, happened when Kylo Ren chose to kill his master, and using the Force, he caused the skywalker lightsaber to turn and ignite, slicing Snoke in half. The Supreme Leader was dead, and he died before fans learned anything about him or his past with Kylo Ren.
To some, Rian Johnson’s decision to kill Snoke was considered a cheap move in order to move the story along, while with others it was considered a bold and shocking surprise that subverted the usual villain tropes.
Speaking with /Film, motion capture master Andy Serkis (Supreme Leader Snoke) talked about his future with Star Wars, and if we’ve actually seen the last of his mysterious character.
"Look, it’s Star Wars, so you never know how life, or whether life can come back to or not. Whether you can be resuscitated or brought back."
So, does this mean a character who was sliced in half by a lightsaber can come back? I mean, Maul did it in The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, but is this really the direction the Star Wars cinematic universe wants to go?

As for how he felt about Rian Johnson killing off Snoke, Serkis says he was “Shocked.”
"Dramatically, it felt absolutely right for that moment in the film, so I didn’t question it. I just think it’s a very, very important scene, so I didn’t question it. But I do, I know it’s left fans feeling like, that they were really searching for something there. And what I’m saying is, who knows?"
Did you catch that last bit? “And what I’m saying is, who knows?” Yeah, we got that, Andy Serkis, and now, thanks to you, there will be endless speculation for two years on if we’ll see Supreme Leader Snoke in some fashion, in Episode IX. Thanks.
Most likely, we’ll see Snoke return in some sort of flashback, training young Ben Solo, as he becomes Kylo Ren. But, this is Star Wars, and stranger things have happened.
