For those of you who have been tuning in to see “The Young and the Restless’” Ignacio Serricchio (Alex Chavez) during season nine of Fox’s series, “Bones,” the actor has good news: He’s fairly certain he’ll be appearing in season 10, as well!

“Hopefully I’ll be back for season 10. I’m pretty sure I will: I’ve talked with the execs and they really like my character,” he tells Soap Opera Network. “I’ve been having a great time. I love everybody there.”

But as for whether or not he’ll be appearing on “Y&R” any time in the near future remains to be seen. “Alex is still around, but he’s probably on some very, very undercover assignment,” jokes the actor, who’s on recurring status with the sudser. “But I’ll be back: They can’t get rid of me that easily!”

Rumors had been swirling all weekend and now Soap Opera Digest is reporting that former “All My Children” actor, and “The Price is Right” male model, Robert Scott Wilson (ex-Pete Cortlandt) has joined the cast of NBC’s “Days of our Lives” as a recast Ben Rogers. He replaces daytime newcomer Justin Gaston, who in real-life is married to “The Young and the Restless’” Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman).

Per the publication, Wilson had already been on set filming in January as the series celebrated its two year renewal by NBC. As a result, Wilson’s first airdate isn’t expected until at least next month due to the soaps four to five months ahead filming schedule – Gaston began filming on the series in mid-October and didn’t air until late February.

Corday Productions, which produces “DAYS,” has not confirmed any casting changes per its policy.

In remembrance of the Boston Marathon bombings that took place one year ago, a portion of the east coast broadcast of ABC’s “General Hospital” will be preempted on Tuesday, April 15, a representative for the network informs Soap Opera Network. ABC News will cut into the broadcast from approximately 2:35 PM to 2:55 PM, EST.

According to the network, there will be no changes made to the episode  (#13,036) to accommodate the preemption. Therefore, viewers will still be able to tune in to see Sonny’s conscience continuing to haunt him, while Carlos fears he could be accused of shooting AJ. Jordan begins her new job, while Ava and Julian confront each other about their deeds, and Ned (Wally Kurth) returns to Port Charles.

Viewers on the east coast looking to watch the episode in its entirety can do so by utlizing the power of WATCH ABC, Hulu Plus or their cable/satellite providers ABC OnDemand service.

The east coast preemption will not affect the west coast airing.
