Fan favorite Charles Shaughnessy, who has played Shane Donovan, on and off since 1984, will be back on the Salem canvas very soon!

According to Soap Opera Digest, the actor is already back at NBC taping new episodes of the soap, and will first air appear on-air on May 2.  Last time Shaughnessy appeared was in 2010, when  Shane reunited with life-long love Kimberly (Patsy Pease) after Alice Horton’s memorial service.

We have also been hearing rumblings and reports that DAYS is also casting the role of Andrew, Shane and Kimberly’s son. In Nelson Branco’s new edition of Soap Opera Unsensored, he reports that the following casting breakdown went out to agents:

“Looking for a 22 to 26 year old handsome, Caucasian male. ANDREW is a very sexy handsome man in an untraditional off-centre way.  He has a smoldering sexuality that makes women attracted to him and dark sides that make them fear him. He has a charm that disarms and can turn on a dime. You never quite know what he is thinking or feeling. Prototypes are: younger Viggo Mortensen, Mark Walberg in Fear, Ryan Gosling in Murder by Numbers and Edward Norton in Primal Fear”

So what do you think Shane is returning to Salem for? Who should DAYS cast as Andrew? Let us know!

I’ve been wondering when we were going to see Kim & Shane’s kids, all grown up! Maybe someone from OLTL or AMC will end up in the role.

Looking forward to what they have in store for Shane. Hope it has to do with the Alimainia story just starting now with Bope and Jarlena.

I have been wanting Andrew to return, though I am not sure how I feel about him being a little crazy lol that is all I can think of when I think of Mark Wahlberg In fear…lol however with all the ups and downs of his parents relationship and his father disappearing for a year etc could make for an interesting charachter would love Jeannie to return also! I am really happy as this means more chances of Shane AND KIM to return if their kid is in town! Bummed that Kim isn’t returning now with Shane 🙁

Can’t wait to see Shane again!!! Would love to see Chloe come back, especially if they again pair her with Brady. Madison is a horrible character and should go ASAP!!! But I don’t want Daniel or Melanie to leave.

Wonerful about Charles Shaughnessy returning again to Days as Shane. He is certainly an asset. Nobody could replace him, he is the best character ever.

Notice that the casting call says nothing about being a trained actor or any acting skills? This is what is wrong with daytime, too concerned with looks and following stupid trends instead of concentrating on good stories with good actors.

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.
