Well here’s something to talk about! Crystal Chappell and Louise Sorel will both be out when their contracts expire in a few months, and it seems that Deidre Hall and Drake Hogestyn will be returning, according to an interview Sorel did with TV Guide.
In addition, Ken Corday talked about several changes going forward, particulary in terms of casting: http://daytimeroyaltyonline.com/topic/8522344/1/
Thoughts? Predictions or mandates on who else goes, stays, or returns?
Two people I think may be a little vulnerable but who better not be going anywhere are Renee Jones (Lexie) and Arianne Zucker (Nicole)!
I think Jones is safe, as I’ve read that TPTB want to move Abe & Lexie to the forefront. I don’t know what the show has planned, but I am definitely tuning in Sept. 26, as for me the soap world is a baron land anymore and if DAYS could return to its glory days, I would definitely tune in again.
I do hope that Chad & Will become the gay couple, tho, as they have somuch chemistry and could be a real supercouple if Corday & Co. don’t cop out on this.
Overall, I’m pretty pleased with the way the cast changes have worked out. And now the return of DAYS to its 90s glory is only a few days away! The show and the cast are really hyping this up, so I hope they can live up to expectations!
The show has been much better the last few weeks, it feel heartier somehow, so I feel good about the changes in writing and production going forward.
