As shown in the latest promo featuring the returns of Will Horton (Chandler Massey) and Sonny Kiriakis (Zach Tinker), actor Greg Rikaart is also set to reprise his role as Leo Stark on “Days of our Lives” when the soap returns from its Winter Olympics hiatus in the weeks ahead.
While we can’t say at this time who or what Leo is involved in, nor why Will and Sonny are invested in taking him down, we can say that viewers will be in for a fun journey as his storyline does tie into what’s occurring currently on the show, albeit what’s aired prior to the on-air hiatus.
In the meantime, as shown in the promo, Will and Sonny ask their good friend Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) for his help. “We have to understand this guy’s weaknesses if we’re going to exploit them,” Sonny says to Chad of Leo. Later, a shocked Chad yells, “I thought we were friends!”
In a tweet, Rikaart commented, “Oh how you tease, Chadwick. I’m so excited for Leo’s return to Salem. Great stuff ahead!”
Watch the promo below.
Rikaart is expected to continue appearing as Kevin Fisher on “The Young and the Restless” despite also appearing on “Days of our Lives,” which films episodes six to seven months ahead of airdate. A first airdate for Rikaart on “Days of our Lives” was not known at press time.
