The next Guilty Gear Strive DLC character has been officially announced, to release on the 6th April alongside a new stage. As many fans predicted, Bedman is (kind of) returning, although he's now called Bedman? (complete with the question mark) and he seemingly is the bed this time around.
It's a fun twist, because he fights alongside another character who features in the game's updated story mode, albeit briefly. She's called Delilah, and she's Bedman's younger sister.
Developer Arc System Works has also confirmed that a third season of DLC for Guilty Gear Stive is now in development. If your favourite characters still haven't come back (Johnny? Slayer?), there's hope yet!
