Melody revealed, “I was thrilled to hear it was three years. That means they are thinking very positively about the state of everything. That’s great they are.”

The talented actress and long time Y&R staple also said via her Twitter account that she owes a lot of her ending back on the soap with a new contract to her legions of fans! Melody stated, ”If fans had not stepped up, I would not have a job today. I’m so grateful.”

And as far as if we will see our favorite boozy socialite still battling the bottle upon her return to GC in late November?  All Melody could say was something we all love to hear! I love Nikki drinking!” Scott said. “I like it as an actor. It’s much more fun, and everybody seems to prefer a drunk Nikki.”   So stay tuned!

Not to be a pest but doesn’t that prove that she lied when she earlier started to complain on Twitter about her lack of screentime but said it had nothing to do with difficult contract negotiations and the production company was just being rude to her? Hmmmm

AWESOME news! Y&R is MTS’s soap. I have become so concerned by the current Y&R regime’s patterns of stunt casting, rewriting history and ignoring the show’s prior excellence in delivering beautiful character-driven drama. Note to Y&R producers/writers: stop bringing on big-name actors and shoving characters in our faces that we don’t care about, and stop, and I mean stop now, with all this plot-driven story that insults our intelligence. Note to Sony: do start respecting the people who work at Y&R and those who have given this show their lives for decades. Dear Sony, these people make the money for Sony and CBS, so start showing so a little respect.

I am thrilled to bits Melody will be back on the show soon.
But Judas Priest – Don’t put her back with Victor….it’s sooo done and doner.
I’d like her to come back and take the “mustache” to task for continually interfering in Victoria’s life.
And find her a new love interest.

I don’t want to see a drunk Nikki – Enuf already!!! I want to see her with a backbone and starting a life for herself and not focusing on the lives of her GROWN children. Y&R has not been the same without her and Victor maybe her soul-mate, but in the end he always disappoints her. The character deserves better.

I like Melody Thomas Scott very much, and while I think that she is a talented actress, I truly cannot believe or understand why she should be making double the amount of money on Y&R that Eric Braeden makes. Melody is a good actress, and is a true beauty,and she is an important element to the success of the show, however Mr. Eric Braeden is an absolutely gifted, great actor, he stands alone as one of the best actors ever. How is it that an actor of his stature would be making less money? Without Eric Breaden Y&R would not have become the #1 soap, and because of him the show has maintained that status. If any one person on Y&R should be making more money than anyone, it should be Eric Braeden.

I absolutely agree Victor, Kay C. & Nikki makes this show!!

I remember when they hired that actress whose character rescued Nick after the plane crash. Her contract was for three years too. She didn’t last one year.

How to Get Away With Murder To End After Its Upcoming Sixth Season

ABC has announced that Professor Annalise Keating (Viola Davis), and those cagey law students of hers, will receive some closure and exciting endings as How to Get Away with Murder will come to a conclusion after its season six. The upcoming 15-episode final season will premiere on Thursday, September 26 at 10 PM.

Series creator Peter Nowalk said in a statement released today: “Deciding to end this series was a brutal decision, but ultimately the story tells you what to do – as it did here.  For me, Annalise Keating’s journey has always had a clear ending.  Knowing I have 15 episodes left to finish her story, and the chance to give all the characters their own killer endings, is a gift rarely given to a series creator and I’m grateful to ABC and ABC Studios for the opportunity and creative freedom. I am so thankful to the brilliant cast, writers and crew for dedicating themselves to the most rewarding experience of my career over the last six years. I also want to thank our fans. The only reason this show exists is because of your loyalty and enthusiasm. I can’t wait for you all to see how it ends, with twists and turns and all the craziness we love to create every Thursday night. Buckle up.”

The final season will follow the perils of Professor Annalise Keating’s class through their final semester in law school with much deceit and murder going along with it!

Karey Burke, President, ABC Entertainment. said in a statement on the conclusion of the series: “Viola Davis made television history with her unforgettable portrayal of iconic female antihero Annalise Keating.  I am eternally grateful to her, Pete Nowalk and Shondaland for creating and bringing to life such a smart, sophisticated and groundbreaking series that has long been an integral part of Thursday nights on ABC.”

How to Get Away with Murder burst on to primetime TV screens back in 2014, and helped formed the Shondaland programming block along with Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal.

The final season stars Davis along with the current cast comprised of: Billy Brown, Jack Falahee, Aja Naomi King, Matt McGorry,, Charlie Weber, Liza Weil Conrad Ricamora, former ‘Bold and the Beautiful’ star Rome Flynn, and Amirah Vann.

OLTL Favorite Mark Lawson Appears On General Hospital

Viewers of ABC daytime were in a for a surprise (although rumors had been circulating), when former One Life to Live alum, Mark Lawson showed up on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital.   In it, Mark came on to the Port Charles scene as Dustin Phillips, a man Lulu (Emme Rylan) was meeting with at the Metro Court for her “story” on online dating, and a potential suspect in the home burglaries tied to a dating app.

Meanwhile, while Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) is away originally being deprogrammed from his nightmare in Turkey, Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) got news from Mac (John J. York) that there may be a lead to his whereabouts in Ithaca, New York,

Maxie is taking it upon herself to locate Dante and bring him back to Lulu.  In addition, when she noticed Lulu enjoying the company of Dustin a bit too much, she was somewhat alarmed that her bff would be having a good time with another man.

It’s been a minute since daytime fans have seen Lawson, who played Navy Seal, Brody Lovett on One Life.  His character was involved with Jessica (Bree Williamson) and all of her alters: Tess, Bess, Wes, et,c and also Jessica’s sister, Natalie (Melissa Archer).

Once fans got wind of his GH appearance, Lawson posted on Instagram along with his workout videos: “Well .. cat’s out of the bag, Stay soapy, my friends.”

So, will Mark continue on GH as a new love interest for Lulu?  Could Dustin be tied to the crimes Lulu is investigating? Would you like to see Lulu move on with her life if Dante is off the canvas for a long time, or do you hope Dominic Zamprogna returns, and there becomes a triangle, or none of the above? Let us know what should happen for Luly in the romance department via the comment section below.
