All we can say is “Wow!”  Crystal Chappell’s latest online web series, The Grove announced it’s official cast list last evening and it is filled with some of the biggest and most popular names to ever grace daytime television screens!

From what we can tell, at the series centerpiece will be Chappell and her longtime scene partner, Jessica Leccia, once again in new roles.  Chappell plays Nico and Leccia plays Ivy.   But then come the dueling families and citizens of The Grove  that will also be key and major components of the new web soap.  Yup, look for the Moynihans vs. the Kincaids!

Daytime Emmy winners General Hospital’s Laura Wright, The Young and the Restless  Michelle Stafford, Christian LeBlanc and Beth Maitland, Guiding Light’s Justin Deas and  Jordan Clarke all have key roles!  Add to that, daytime favorites formerly from Days of our Lives Peter Reckell and Nadia Bjorlin, and The Bold and the Beautiful’s Linsey Godrey, plus Venice’s Harrison White and Patrick Killian-White, and you have one talented cast!

To check the official casting announcement, go to the The Grove The Series official facebook page and there will be the reveal of who everyone will play! And for more information on the back-story of The Grove, the characters, and what is to come, visit the series website here!

This is going to be fantastic. Can’t wait. Love almost everyone involved, especially CC & JL.

(btw all you one lifers. It’s over. Get over it. We all had to move on from our various cancelled soaps. You can too. I tried to watch it. Gave it 2 months and could not abide it. There is no need to mention it ad nauseam as the standard for excellence all other shows must ascribe to.)

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
