Max Turner makes shock return to Coronation Street | The Sun
GRIFF Reynolds has caused damage to Weatherfield residents and left Max Turner to pick up the pieces.
The Coronation Street teen is finally heard from again in scenes airing next week on ITV.
Max Turner's grooming storyline took a harrowing turn when he was left to face justice after helping far-right activist Griff Reynolds spread his vile agenda across the cobbles.
To make matters worse, Griff organised an attack on Weatherfield which led to Alya Nazir getting hurt.
The Speed Daal co-owner was in a critical condition again when she saved Maria Connor from getting stabbed by Blake, a lad who was determined to keep Griff's legacy alive after his arrest.
Despite being groomed into taking part in such activities and making propaganda videos for Griff, the teen portrayed by Paddy Bever was charged with incitement to attempt murder in January, 2023.

This was due to Blake admitting that Max's videos inspired him to carry out the stabbing at Speed Daal.
Max pled guilty to encouraging terrorism and was handed a six-month sentence before he told his father David Platt (Jack P. Shepherd) he wanted to be left to his own devices while in the secure training centre (STC).
Coming up next week, however, David tells his mother Gail (Helen Worth) that Max is being considered for an early release.
He later visits the youngster in the STC and is sure to warn him not to get his hopes up just yet.

Corrie boss Iain MacLeod also revealed that Max is due to get a "happy ending" – and romance is in the cards.
"He's going to get a happy ending in the end. It's important that we showed a story where somebody who's gone that far down the wrong path, there is the chance to pull them back."
"The story at its heart was supposed to be about a family dealing with: 'How do you communicate with a teenager that's gone this far off-track? How do you bring them back into the fold? How do you redeem them?'"
