Crystal Chappell to Return to Days

According to TV Guide Magazine, Crystal Chappell is returning to Days of Our Lives as Carly Manning as soon as Guiding Light ends. She starts taping in September, with her airdates beginning in October.

Many Otalia fans had been hoping the couple would switch over to As the World Turns to continue their budding romance. Since it appears that won't be happening, maybe we'll have a Bo and Carly reunion? Or maybe Lawrence Alamain (played by real-life hubby Michael Sabatino) will be hot on her heels?

UPDATE: Crystal confirmed the Lawrence Alamain will be returning to Salem via this Twitter message: "Michael will indeed pop up on DOOL." The Alamains keep coming, as Louise Sorel is set to reprise her role as Vivian Alamain as well.

This is good news for Days fans, as the show and the story lines have been floundering for quite a while. The reintroduction of Carly could breathe some much-needed life into the flailing soap.
