Big news from the DOOL app that went down on Sunday during the Daytime Emmy Awards.  Fan favorites Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi are coming back to Days of our Lives to reprise their roles of Chad DiMera and Abigail Deveraux DiMera.

When viewers last saw Chad and Abby, they tied the knot and headed off to Europe with their children in tow.  Now, we will have to wait and see just what happens when they return to Salem!

Look for Flynn and Mansi’s return to happen this fall on-screen.

As many know, Mansi previously won a Daytime Emmy for her work as Abby, and Flynn has been a nominee.

I am shocked, honestly. I didn’t expect them to return so soon, especially with Kate Mansi in the role. I’m wondering, however, is this a long-term return or a short-term return for holiday-centric episodes? Admittedly, I would’ve preferred for Marci Miller to return, but it’ll be nice to have two familiar faces back in these roles, especially since Billy Flynn admitted he’d accept a recast if that were the route TPTB chose to take for the character of Chad.

Days is like a prime time show with characters making guest appearances…

More than likely this is a short visit. I hate when they make headlines like these making it sound as if they are coming back, then its like for 2 episode. Bye.

Yeah, ReRon pulled that dragonshit all the time when he was ruining GH. And we’re already seeing this on Days i.e. the recent 2 day appearance of Valerie Grant. If all she was going to do was break up with Abe, that didn’t need to be shown on screen.

I would guess we will see Chad & Abby show up for the Hellidays and then disappear again shortly thereafter.

Maybe because of their budget, DOOL can’t afford to have Kate Mansi and Billy Flynn come back full-time and maybe they’re even fine with short term returns and not be tied down to a contract.So maybe the show is just happy to get them back when they can

No offense to Kate but I would have liked Marci Miller come back as Abby. Kate has been in a lot of Lifetime movies ,hey maybe they should chance the name to Days Of our Lifetime.

I’m happy about this news.Now as for why the characters of Chad and Abigail might be returning, well if and when Jack remembers it makes sense that his daughter Abigail should be there for it and maybe Chad returns to support Abigail.

As the World Turns and Guiding Light Favorite, Lisa Brown, Passes Away at 67

(UPDATED) In just more heartbreaking news in the soap world in 2021, we have lost another beloved performer.  Lisa Brown, who was so noteworthy for her spunky and emotional turns as Guiding Light’s Nola Reardon from 1980-1985, and later as Iva Snyder on As the World Turns from 1986-1994, has died.

Brown passed away this week on November 24th at the age of 67 following a brief illness.  The news came via the As the World Turns Facebook Fan Group and Soap Opera Digest.

This comes just two months later following the death of her former on-screen love interest Michael Tylo (Ex-Quinton, Guiding Light), who passed away in late September.

Those that followed Lisa’s career know she also starred in the Broadway Musical 42nd Street, while still playing Nola each and every day on Guiding Light.

She is survived by her children: James “Buddy” Nielsen, and daughter Victoria from her first husband Tom Nielsen (Ex-Floyd, GL) in addition to her two grandchildren, Penelope Ruiz-Nielsen and Brayden Hopf, and her second husband Brian Neary.

Brown’s on-screen ATWT daughter, Martha Byrne  (Ex-Lily) simply tweeted, “My heart is broken.”

On Friday, Lisa’s son, Buddy Nielsen, posted a touching tribute to his mother, where he revealed that she passed away due to cancer.

Buddy shared: “My Mom passed away the day before Thanksgiving after a very quick battle with cancer. This all happened really fast and wasn’t expecting it. I’ve been MIA as I’ve been back and forth between LA and NJ as she has been in and out of the hospital the last couple weeks. This dream we live, we are all subject to the suffering, aging and death. It’s not to be morose but to understand that we have finite time and must take care with what we do and how we do it. To be able to be with someone at their last breath is truly beautiful. We must not fear death as without it we would never be born and experience the 10,000 joys and 10,000 sorrows. Our existence is both small and vast all at the same time. We are tiny but immense. I know she is here but no longer in her physical form, what we do in love we leave in death. My beautiful daughter and unborn son are her legacy.”

Share your condolences to Lisa’s family, and let us know of your remembrances of this wonderful actress who gave us so many memorable moments throughout her career via the comment section below. But first, watch Lisa in some of her classic scenes from ATWT and GL.

Steve Burton Confirms His Exit From General Hospital

Steve Burton has spoken and after so much speculation, the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star has confirmed he is out as General Hospital’s Jason Morgan.

In his post on his Instagram account on Tuesday, Steve shared that he was let go by the ABC daytime drama series due to their vaccine mandate and that even though he applied for medical and religious exemptions those were denied.  Thus, he has to exit his role.

In story, viewers saw on Monday, that Jason is MIA from being under the rubble of the cave that collapsed in Jason’s attempt to apprehend Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his post, Burton shared the following: “I know there has been a lot of rumors and speculations about me and General Hospital and I wanted you to hear it from me, personally. Unfortunately, General Hospital has let me go because of the vaccine mandate. I did apply for my medical and religious exemptions and both of those were denied, which, you know, hurts, but, this is also about personal freedom to me. I don’t think anyone should lose their livelihood over this. But with that being said, you know me. I’ll always be grateful for my time at General Hospital I love it there. I grew up there. I grew up with some of you, so I will always be grateful and I believe when one door closes multiple doors open. That’s always been my perspective, so I am excited to see what the future brings. ”

Steve went on to say, “Maybe one day when these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan. That would be an honor, and if not, I am going to take this amazing experience, move forward and be forever grateful. I have got to say, that I am forever grateful for your love and your support over the years. It means so much to me. Thank you. I don’t know when my last airdate is. It may have aired or it might be tomorrow or the next day. I am not sure. I want you guys to have an awesome Thanksgiving. I know it is hard, maybe, in this type of situation to be thankful or grateful, but we have so many things to be thankful about. Being grateful really is the key. Love you guys.”

The popular actor began his run as GH’s Jason Quartermaine back in 1991. Later in 1995, after a car accident he had a major personality shift and became Jason Morgan. Burton went to Y&R to play Dylan McAvoy for a four-year stint from 2013-2017, before heading back to his home at GH.

A source close to the show told Deadline that Burton’s last tape date was October 27th.

You can watch Steve’s video announcement below on his GH departure.

So, how do you feel about Steve being let go from GH? Do you hope Steve can return at some point? Share your thoughts via the comment section below,
