Earlier this month we gave you your <a href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/12/first-look-mtvs-eye-candy-starring-days-casey-deidrick">first look</a> at "Days of our Lives" alum <strong>Casey Deidrick</strong> (ex-Chad DiMera) in MTV's upcoming suspense thriller, "Eye Candy," starring <strong>Victoria Justice</strong> ("Victorious"). The network has now released the official trailer of the series, which debuts <strong>Monday, January 12</strong> at 10:00 PM ET/PT.

As <a href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/09/days-casey-deidrick-lands-mtv-primetime-series">previously reported</a>, former "Days of our Lives" actor <strong>Casey Deidrick</strong> (ex-Chad DiMera) will be starring in the new MTV series, "Eye Candy," a drama centering on a 21-year-old tech genius named Lindy, played by <strong>Victoria Justice</strong>, who is a hacker with a gift for seeing clues and connections in the digital world that others can't. Deidrick will play the role of Tommy when the series premieres <strong>Monday, January 12</strong> at 10:00 PM ET/PT on MTV.

The moment "Days of our Lives" fans have been waiting for is finally happening: <strong>Molly Burnett</strong> is returning as Melanie Jonas <strong>today, November 21</strong>! But what exactly brings Melanie back to the canvas? And how long does Burnett plan on sticking around in Salem? <em>Soap Opera Network</em> spoke with the actress to find out!

Sharing sex scenes with some of the hottest men in daytime must be a tough gig, but <em>someone’s</em> got to do it. And (un)lucky for the rest of us, “Days of our Lives’” <strong>Kate Mansi </strong>(Abigail Deveraux) is the actress who’s been called upon for the gig. First she got Chad (then played by <strong>Casey Deidrick</strong>, now played by <strong>Billy Flynn</strong>), then she got EJ (<strong>James Scott</strong>), and now she’s got Ben (<strong>Robert Scott Wilson</strong>). But where has this bad boy bonanza left her burgeoning alter ego? <em>Soap Opera Network</em> spoke with Mansi to find out!

“Days of our Lives” debuted the new Chad DiMera on Friday, September 12 with <strong>Billy Flynn</strong> in the shoes of EJ’s (<strong>James Scott</strong>) little brother, and the character hit the canvas with an almost literal bang!

“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!”

With NBC's "Days of our Lives" currently filming 4-5 months ahead of airdate, one has to wonder how the daytime drama series manages to keep storyline and casting secrets under wraps before the world begins chattering. Well one such secret is finally out of the bag. The drama series has cast daytime newcomer Billy Flynn in the contract role of Chad DiMera, who was previously portrayed by Casey Deidrick.

Best known for his singing stints in "Nashville Star" and "If I Can Dream," country music singer and actor Justin Gaston has joined the cast of NBC's "Days of our Lives" in the contract role of Ben, who a casting call from last summer described as "early-to-mid 20s... midwestern or southern (very slight southern accent) country boy. He is utterly charming in his honest sincere approach to life and love. Ben can also sing and/or play the guitar, though it is not necessary." The actor began filming scenes in mid-October and will first air later this month.

Back in June, "Days of our Lives'" Casey Deidrick (ex-Chad DiMera) and Chandler Massey (Will Horton), along with their And I Still Rise bandmates Stephen Haynes, Mike Gross and Josh Bonaparte, launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund a music video for their song, "Sixty Five Roses," in support of those living with Cystic Fibrosis. Last week the group released the music video on YouTube with a digital copy of the song made available for purchase on the iTunes store. The band received nearly $31,000 in funding for their online campaign, which exceeded their goal of $20,000. The video was directed by Robby Starbuck.

Poor Abigail has been living the single life since the Chad/Cameron debacles on “Days of our Lives,” but her portrayer, Kate Mansi, says that won’t last for long! In fact, during a recent interview with Soap Opera Network, the gracious actress revealed a few details regarding her alter ego’s future love life as well as some insight into what makes Abigail tick. Read on to find out what’s in store!

In the coming weeks a storyline involving the characters of Nick Fallon and Gabi Hernandez gets physically violent and rumors are now swirling about the possibility that as a result of the storyline, Nick's portrayer, Blake Berris, may be leaving the "Days of our Lives" canvas.

Today marks the end of a four-year chapter for “Days of our Lives” fan favorite Casey Deidrick (Chad DiMera), who entered Salem as Will’s (Chandler Massey’s) hated rival back in 2009 and is now exiting the canvas as a much-loved and integral character, son of Stefano (Joseph Mascolo). In honor of the occasion, Soap Opera Network spoke with Deidrick’s onscreen love, Kate Mansi (Abigail), who tearfully recalls taping her final scene with Deidrick and opens up about how she truly feels about the star’s exit!

Casey Deidrick, who portrays Chad DiMera on "Days of our Lives," announced today on Twitter that he's departing the NBC Daytime drama series after completing filming of his final episode, which per a tweeted image is expected to air in late October.

On Thursday, July 28, while visiting the "Days of our Lives" set, my crew and I had walked in noticing a tray of cupcakes sitting at the security desk. Turns out it was brought in by Molly Burnett, who was celebrating her third year portraying the role of Melanie Layton on the daytime soap. After completing some scenes that are set to air in October, Burnett and Casey Deidrick (Chad DiMera) headed outside to Salem Place, one of the sets no longer used by the soap, and spent more than 11 minutes talking with us about their characters, what they do in their personal life outside of work, and some of their favorite TV shows and movies . Also, for those fans clamoring for some Chill (Chad/Will), Deidrick shared he's not opposed to a possible pairing.
