If you follow behind-the-scenes happenings at all, this one is definitely not a surprise, but I’m pleased by it…
The actor will first air in July. As of now, there isn’t any word on his story or how long he will be sticking around Salem.
Regardless of the length or purpose of this stay, it’s good news to me. Sonny isn’t the most dynamic character, but he’s been a harbor of (relative) sanity in the sea of madness that is Salem, and he activates a lot of characters (particularly Adrienne and Justin). If this is a long-term thing, it means Paul will get story, which makes me happy, and if it’s short-term, there’s a good chance those rumors about Will returning from the dead are true, and they’re going to reunite them and send them packing. Either way, I’m down.
