On the Monday, September 29 season premiere episode of ABC's "Castle," "General Hospital" star Jon Lindstrom (Kevin Collins) will guest star as FBI Agent Connors, who helps Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) try to solve the toughest case of her career following her much-anticipated nuptials to Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion; ex-Joey Buchanan, "One Life to Live") that resulted in an ominous black SUV driving him off the road in the season finale before he could see his blushing bride.

"This is our 7th and final season," revealed actor Tim Kang, who portrays Kimball Cho on CBS' "The Mentalist," which has featured countless soap stars during its run on television. "Looking at the scripts now, it's so fun and such a great season!"

On the Wednesday, October 1 episode of NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," entitled "American Disgrace," former "One Life to Live" star Kelley Missal (ex-Dani Manning) will appear as an alleged rape victim of pro basketball star Shakir “The Shark” Wilkins (guest star Henry Simmons; "NYPD Blue," "Another World"). In the episode, Orion press rep Carla Cannon (Missal) tells reporters she was raped by Wilkins. When more women come forward, Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Detective Carisi (guest star Peter Scanavino) disagree on the authenticity of each woman’s story, and Barba (Raul Esparza) takes a shaky case to court.

With a 13-episode order, Lifetime has renewed "Devious Maids," executive produced by Marc Cherry and Eva Longoria ("Desperate Housewives"), and starring Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramírez, Roselyn Sánchez, Edy Ganem, Judy Reyes and Susan Lucci ("All My Children"), for a third season.

All we can say about the season three finale of TNT’s primetime soap, “Dallas,” is holy sheep sh*%#t! A promo for the popular series teased that an Ewing was going to die in last night’s September 22 episode, and by golly, the show followed through: Christopher Ewing (played by former “Passions” star Jesse Metcalf) died in a fiery car explosion, much to the horror of audiences everywhere!

Well, it looks like the cat is out of the bag: “Dancing With the Stars” judge Julianne Hough accidentally let it slip that “DWTS” contestant Jonathan Bennett (ex-J.R. Chandler, “All My Children”) is gay!

Exactly 20 years ago today, NBC premiered a sitcom about a circle of friends living in Manhattan. Little did the network know, “Friends” would skyrocket in ratings, becoming one of the most popular sitcoms in television history. The show made David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, Courtney Cox and Jennifer Aniston (real-life daughter of “Days of our Lives’” John Aniston [Victor Kiriakis]) household names. But do you remember The One (or rather five) “DAYS” stars that appeared on the Emmy-winning show? Soap Opera Network sure does, so read on for a super sudsy blast from the past!

“Days of our Lives” Salem has moved on with a brand new Chad (Billy Flynn), but if that wasn’t enough to convince you that previous portrayer Casey Deidrick isn’t returning to the role, maybe this will help: He’s just been cast on MTV’s new drama series, “Eye Candy!”

When Soap Opera Network recently caught up with “One Life to Live’s” David Fumero (ex-Christian Vega), he revealed that he’s been the putting the pedal to the metal in his race to find primetime success, and it looks like his hard work has finally paid off: He’s been cast as a series regular on Starz’ drama series, “Power!”

Hot on the heels of the news that “General Hospital’s” Kelly Monaco (Sam McCall) will be guest-starring on ABC Family’s “Baby Daddy” early next year comes news that another daytime star will be visiting the sitcom: Former “Days of our Lives” star Matt Cedeno (ex-Brandon Walker)!
