Back on September 26, 2017 Soaps.com reported that season three of the hit series Queen Sugar will return during a special two-night event on October 3 and 4. Greg Vaughan revealed on Twitter that he will be back as Calvin in the October 25 episode and stated, “It’s official … thank you ALL for the love & support.” On April 8, 2016, in addition to Greg Vaughan’s role, True O’Brien tweeted her excitement at being a part of “Queen Sugar.” O’Brien wrapped up her stint as Paige Larson when Paige was murdered by the Necktie Killer, AKA Ben Weston, September 8, 2015.
Last November, Greg Vaughan (Eric Brady, Days of Our Lives 2012 – 2016) announced he’d be leaving his role on Days when he heads off to prison where he’ll serve time for accidentally killing his best friend, Daniel Jonas (Shawn Christian) in a drunk driving accident. According to his tweets, it looks like he’s headed for warmer pastures. This morning his tweets indicated he’ll be moving to the corner of Bourbon and Toulouse for a role in The Oprah Winfrey Network’s new series, Queen Sugar. The actor will be acting alongside Ava DuVernay (Lincoln Heights), Bianca Lawson (Pretty Little Liars), Henry G. Sanders (Selma), Rutina Wesley (True Blood), and guest star, Glynn Turman (House of Lies).
This new series is an adaptation of the novel, Queen Sugar by Natalie Baszile. It tells the story of a single LA mother who inherits a sugar cane farm in Louisiana and uproots her daughter to begin a new life on the farm. The contemporary series begins filming this month though no air date has been released. Vaughan will play Calvin, a cop and longtime lover of Nova (Wesley), who shares a connection with her despite being married to somebody else. Sanders is recurring as Prosper Denton, an old friend of Ernest.
In November Vaughan also appeared in The Christmas Note on the Hallmark network. At that time he said his time on Days of our Lives had been “a wonderful ride.”
