    They'll dance again (NBC)
    Since it was announced that Passions would be moving to DirecTV this September, many fans have worried whether their favorite performers would be returning to the show. We've seen a flurry of rumors and speculation from fans concerned that Harmony might be losing more than just its place on NBC. From the time of the first announcement, we've had a few confirmations slowly trickle out, teasing us with expectation. Finally, today, Soaps.com has news of the actors who have signed on to continue shooting with the show when it starts is eighth eagerly anticipated season on September 17th. Listed below are the actors who have officially signed new contracts with the show. Some of the actors currently with the show are expected to return but may only have been taken on in recurring status (for instance, Andrea Evans, who so ebulliently plays the malicious Rebecca Hotchkiss, will still appear, though only as a recurring player).

    * The dapper Eric Martsolf will be returning as Ethan Winthrop.
    * The inimitable Ben Masters will be returning as Julian Crane.
    * Kim Johnston Ulrich will return as the gleefully vicious Ivy Winthrop.
    * Boyish heartthrob Dylan Fergus will return as Noah Bennett.
    * Born to be a leading man Galen Gering will return as Luis Lopez-Fitzgerald.
    * Blond beauty Emily Harper will continue to shine as Fancy Crane.
    * Perennial fan fave Lindsay Hartley will stay on as Theresa Lopez-Fitzgerald Crane Casey.
    * Her chief nemesis, the wonderful Liza Huber, will also be continuing as Gwen Hotchkiss.
    * James Hyde will continue to add his agile charms to the role of Sam Bennett.
    * Juliet Mills will still be Tabitha (but who could ever replace her?)
    * The busy Heidi Mueller will return as Kay Bennett.
    * Award winner Tracey Ross will still be Harmony's only doctor, Eve Russell.
    * The vivacious Eva Tamargo (Pilar Lopez-Fitzgerald) will still look out for her troubled children.
    * Current goddess of evil McKenzie Westmore will not give the role of Sheridan Crane up.
    * Erin Cardillo will also be continuing, with her fabulous portrayal of Esme.

    Now that many of us have breathed a heavy sigh of relief, please remember that Soaps.com shall continue to keep you informed of any further announcements.

    My question is will Soaps.com still have a daily update on Passions? When it moves?

    Yes. They haven't signed on for full contracts. This may mean that (a) they will not return, (b) they haven't signed yet, (c) or that they will appear on recurring status with a more minor role. There are a few for each option, but, until it's made official, I can't say anything more.

    Yes. We do intend to continue covering the show after its move.

    The actress who plays Whitney (can't think of her name right now) already has a new gig so I don't think she'll be coming back unless her new show flops. Endora just has to come back! Well, she wouldn't be signing her own contracts anyway so maybe that's why they didn't mention her. I could care less about the rest of them.

    They should be anyways, even if they were thinking about not putting updates for passions, they should because at the top left corner it says "all soaps, all the time." And if I'm not mistaken this site is for soapopera shows LOL.

    Thank the Lord that these same actors and actress are still gonna be with the show. I may not get to watch the show, but at least I will get to read about them here on soaps.com.

    From what I have read I think soaps.com will still have daily updates and a message board for Passions once it moves to DirecTV.

    I think someone is going to kill this blackmailer and i hope that he kills spike too because the blackmailer is paying spike to do something crazy. Now you know that if spike dont even care about his own wife what makes you think that he is too scared to turn down the blackmailer's offer
