Soap fans rejoiced when news broke online that multiple Emmy winner Chandler Massey will be returning to “Days of our Lives.” The actor, who left the show in 2013, began work at the NBC soap last month, EW reports.
What is even more shocking is that Massey will be reprising the role of Will Horton. However, the show is keeping it under wraps as to what kind of capacity Will will be seen.
Massey began his time on “DAYS” in 2010, and became popular among viewers during his tumultuous relationship with EJ DiMera (James Scott), and then broke ground after sharing a lip-lock with Neil at a party. Fans began to enjoy Will’s relationship with Sonny Kiriakis, thus branding the couple, “WilSon.”
As the character of Will Horton was killed in 2015 during the Red Necktie Serial Killer storyline, fans are left to wonder just how will Will be re-introduced to the canvas.
Look for Chandler Massey to first appear on “DAYS” sometime this September.
