    in

    Hi,

    Is the "in" necessary in this sentence?

    Are you serious about moving back in or are you pulling my leg?

    Thanks a lot

    It's not always necessary. It depends on where the person is moving back [in] to.

    So it isn't wrong but depends on the context?

    Yes; for example, you move back to Sydney, but you move back into your previous apartment.
    If you have a roommate, they might ask, "Are you moving back in?"
