The bank robber – who is played by actor Charlie Lawson in the ITV soap – was sentenced to seven in prison after robbing a bank to buy the Rovers Return in 2011, which would see him released sometime this year.
He was last seen in prison in 2014 when the actor returned for a brief stint.
Then Jim was one of the leaders of the prison that Peter Barlow was put in after being arrested for Tina McIntyre's murder.
He terrorised Peter in an effort to force him to make his ex-wife Liz and son Steve get back into contact with him, but when that went terrible wrong, he ended up vowing revenge on his family.
And since Liz mentioned him this week, fans have been clamouring for his return, so they have, and think now is the perfect time for Jim to make his cobbles comeback.
One tweeted: "Bring back Jim McDonald #Corrie"
Another agreed and wrote: "I remember he was sentenced back in 2011 for 7 years meaning he'll be released this year. Do you think we will or it'll just be mentioned that he got out and then it'll be forgotten?"
However, another fan has an intriguing theory that could see Jim make a brief return, but also remain in prison.
They say that if Pat Phelan is caught and imprisoned for his crimes, then Jim could be used by Liz to make his life a living hell on the inside.
The fan wrote: "Maybe Pat Phelan will get sent to prison and Jim will be waiting so he will after Elizabeth visits and tells him a man called Pat Phelan is coming and to make his life hell, and that he killed someone called Andy."
In real life, when not acting, Charlie runs a farm shop in his village in Cheshire.
