Francesa's WFAN return gets really wild is reporting that WFAN has confirmed WFAN is in talks with Mike Francesa about a potential return to WFAN.

It doesn't sound like anyone at WFAN wants Francesa back, except for him and the Entercom suits that signed off on his apparent comeback. But he's coming back, and it looks like there will be plenty of palace intrigue to be gossiped about while waiting for his still-unscheduled return date.

Here's a rundown of everything you need to know, from the reported future of Francesa replacements Chris Carlin, Maggie Gray and Bart Scott, the conspiracy Francesa claims spurred him to return, some vulgar, but pivotal, text messages and what Chris "Mad Dog" Russo thinks about the whole affair:

Multiple reports indicate Francesa's "new" show, which The New York Daily News reports should start early next month, will start at 3 or 3:30 p.m. and end at 6:30 p.m., when WFAN's Yankees pregame typically begins. The show could stretch out to 7 p.m. once baseball season is over.

Carlin, Gray and Scott will have their 2-6:30 p.m. timeslot shrunk significantly. Early guesses say they will be on the air from 1-3 or 3:30 p.m., with the midday show featuring Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts being shifted back to 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., as it had been prior to Francesa's Dec. 15, 2017 exit after 30 years at WFAN. The WFAN morning show with Boomer Esiason and Gregg Giannotti is expected to stay at 6-10 a.m. is reporting that WFAN has confirmed WFAN is in talks with Mike Francesa about a potential return to WFAN.

Remember when Francesa and Russo recently reunited on MLB Network and took some shots at WFAN and the new afternoon team? Esiason fired back very publicly, calling the jabs "classless" and sparking a back-and-forth with Russo, as well as drawing fire from new WABC morning hosts Bernie McGuirk and former WFAN fixture Sid Rosenberg, who succeeded the recently-retired Don Imus.

Carlin, apparently, fired back publicly. During his Sirius XM show, Russo revealed Carlin texted him and Francesa after the MLB Network appearance and told them to "blank my you-know-what." The existence of the texts were then later confirmed by multiple reports.

Russo ripped Carlin for sending the texts, but said he let them go. Francesa, Russo said, was not as easy-going, and Francesa's former partner implied the texts inspired Francesa to pursue his old job.

Perhaps the texts were the "campaign" Francesa was alluding to when he suggested to Newsday on Tuesday, after confirming he would be returning to WFAN, that his comeback was in-part due to a vague, shadowy sabotage attempt against him? For what it's worth, Carlin, Gray and Scott all took the high road in discussing the matter at the beginning of their show Tuesday.
