(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “One Life to Live” is now confirming that Tuc Watkins will reprise the role of David Vickers this summer, and interact with “several of the show’s core families.” 

In an update to a story SON first brought you on Wednesday, Tuc Watkins will make yet another of his brief returns to Llanview in the coming months. Since originating the role of David Vickers in 1994, Watkins has returned to his “One Life” roots on ten separate occassions. 

Both Soap Opera Digest and SOAPnet are reporting that, while the exact length of Watkins’ latest stint remains uncertain, it appears that he will be back long enough for David to spend some time bonding with his newfound kinfolk, chat with best friend Viki, and drop in on ex-wife Dorian.  This marks Watkins second return to Llanview since discovering he was the biological son of Bo Buchanan, a member of one of the town’s wealthiest families (in April he breezed through Llanview to confront his lady love after she sent him a picture of her kissing Ray Montez, before returning to Hollywood as spokesman for Have-a-Seat hemorrhoid creme). 

No first airdate has yet been announced, however look for Watkins to return to “OLTL” some time this summer for a limited engagement. SON will continue to follow this story, and update as conditions warrant.     

“One Life to Live” airs weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet. Check local listings.
