Michael Easton fans, your prayers have been answered! As of Wednesday, August 9 ABC and Michael Easton finally reached an agreement. It looks as if Michael's character John McBain will be sticking around Llanview beyond the expiration of his contract at the end of August.

"So here we go again. Got a lot of work to do. Gonna' work harder. Dream bigger. And here's to the second time around being even sweeter. Thank you for standing by me, thick and thin, without you this is meaningless. I won't ever forget," says Michael Easton in a statement given on his official website.

Since ABC doesn't comment on contracts, terms of the agreement were not immediately available.
