Alan Locher noted: “I grew up watching these shows, long before I started working in the industry. I truly understand the connection fans have to their favorite daytime actors and characters.

It’s great that that the ”Discovery” channel/network
took on the Dark Shadow series..
thing is-
it needs many viewers to keep it from
getting canceled..
so, I hope many tune in..
It’s only on the second season now.

I hope if the new one gets the green light-its suppose to be DS 50 years later and set in today…on the CW sometime next year if this Pandemic ever ends and they can film!!!
