Days of our Lives
Greg Rikaart returns to Days of our Lives as the nefarious Leo Stark. However, head writer Ron Carlivati confirmed on Twitter that the series will be in production hiatus for two weeks.

We send well-wishes to Chloe Lanier (Nelle), who reported in an Instagram story that she’s showing symptoms of infection and is now in self-quarantine.

The Young and the Restless
Congratulations go out to Daniel Goddard (Cane) who passed his US citizenship test last week. Meanwhile, Judith Chapman (Gloria) has been cast as former First Lady Nancy Reagan in the new Will Smith film, King Richard.
