Casey has been missing from the canvas since being sent to prison earlier this year for bail-jumping. Early this summer Casey broke things off with Maddie over the phone, telling her that they were different people in different places. This news threw Maddie for a loop and wound up driving her into Noah's arms.
Maddie ultimately left town to find herself after learning that Noah was gay. Her character is said to be attending Wesleyan College. You can read about the exit of Alexandra Chando, Maddie, here.
So the announcement this week from Margo was quite a surprise to most fans.
Soaps.com has learned that Billy Magnussen will take over the role later this year. Billy is currently appearing on Broadway in "The Ritz". The play is a comedy involved mobsters and a New York bathhouse! The play runs through December 9, 2007.
Here is what a few fans have had to say about Casey's return:
Gagal said, "[I] was excited to hear the news as well, though I understand it will be a new Casey."
Erleebird said, "I hope the new Casey will "grow" on me like the "old" one! He was a doll!"
With the return of Casey, could we see a new Maddie as well? We'll have to wait and see!
Soaps.com has not learned when Casey will first appear on the show, but we will keep you updated as this story develops.
