From drama on “Days of our Lives” to comedy on “The Nanny,” <strong>Charles Shaughnessy</strong> (Shane Donovan) is a jack of all acting trades. And he’ll soon be showing off his skills on the ABC primetime hit, “Revenge!”

It seems like forever ago since the <a href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/08/breaking-news-justin-hartley-yrs-new-adam-newman">news</a> of <strong>Justin Hartley</strong> joining the cast of CBS' "The Young and the Restless" as Adam Newman first came to light, but in less than two weeks fans will finally find out what the character has been up to when he's not shown snooping around Genoa City while trying to keep tabs on the love of his life - Chelsea Newman (<strong>Melissa Claire Egan</strong>) - and their child. On <strong>Wednesday, November 5</strong>, Hartley begins his journey on the daytime drama series when Adam works his way back into the world of the living, and in this newly released promo highlighting his debut viewers will come to realize "you can't keep a bad man down."
With a slew of soap weddings under her belt, a run at playing “crazy” and nearly a decade of daytime experience between “The Young and the Restless” and “All My Children,” a back-from-the-dead storyline is no big thang for “Y&R’s” <strong>Melissa Claire Egan </strong>(Chelsea Lawson). Except for when the back-from-the-dead character happens to be her alter ego’s kid-killing husband, and that same guy’s real-life recast happens to be one of the most talked about soap events of the year! So just how is Egan taking in all of the madness surrounding Adam’s big return from the “dead,” including the fact that the character is now being played by <strong>Justin Hartley</strong>? <em>Soap Opera Network</em> caught up with the actress to find out!
Now that “The Young and the Restless’” newest castmember, <strong>Justin Hartley</strong>, has been given the all-clear to start commenting on taking over the role of Adam Newman, he’s letting ‘er rip! First, he spoke about <a title="Justin Hartley Finally Speaks Up About Taking Over the Role of ‘Y&R’s’ Adam!" href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/10/justin-hartley-finally-speaks-taking-role-yrs-adam" target="_blank">filling the shoes of previous portrayer</a> <strong>Michael Muhney</strong>, and now he’s spilling details about Adam’s return to Genoa City, stating: “There’s damage control to be done!”
When <em>Soap Opera Network</em> <a href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/09/exclusive-justin-hartleys-first-airdate-revealed-10-things-adam-missed-maybe-missed-since-presumed-dead" target="_blank">broke the news</a> that <strong>Justin Hartley</strong>’s first airdate as Adam Newman would be <strong>Wednesday, November 5</strong>, it felt like the actor’s Genoa City premiere date couldn’t come fast enough. And now that the actor has finally spoken up about joining the sudser in a new interview, the anticipation is even greater! Some fans have expressed their fear that taking over the role — which was previously played by <strong>Michael Muhney</strong> — will be an uphill battle for the actor, and guess what? He’s not only aware of the challenges, but is tackling them head on!
Things are about to get downright juicy on "Revenge" when the new season premieres Sunday, September 28 on ABC. In a newly released promo, Victoria Grayson (Madeline Stowe) narrates a dramatic version of Emily Thorne's (Emily VanCamp) revenge plot against her and her family, but in season four it looks like it's Victoria's turn for some revenge. Watch out, Emily!
As they celebrated their first anniversary as hosts of "Soap Box with Lilly & Martha" on Thursday, August 21, former daytime soap stars Lilly Melgar ("General Hospital") and Martha Madison ("Days of our Lives") had soap journalist Michael Maloney, talent manager Michael Bruno and online soap reporter Michael Fairman on as guests as they discussed the week's biggest soap opera news. No story was bigger this past week than the news of Justin Hartley ("Passions," "Revenge," "Mistresses") returning to daytime television to portray a recast Adam Newman on CBS' "The Young and the Restless." According to Bruno, however, there was a chance that the role could have gone to Hartley's former "Smallville" co-star Tom Welling, "Sex and the City's" Jason Lewis or "Queer as Folk's'" Gale Harold.
The soap world was hit this morning with the exciting news that “Smallville” and “Mistresses” star Justin Hartley (ex-Fox Crane) has been cast as “The Young and the Restless’” Adam Newman. Early reaction to the casting news seems to be positive thus far, and that goes for former portrayer Michael Muhney’s response, as well!
He's been prancing around Genoa City only showing his hands to viewers, while the rest of the town thinks he's dead, but Adam Newman is most certainly returning to CBS' "The Young and the Restless" in the coming months with a new face after supposedly dying in a fiery explosion in late January as played by actor Michael Muhney. TV Guide's Michael Logan is reporting that "Smallville" and "Revenge" star Justin Hartley is returning to daytime television to assume the role of the devilish Adam just in time for the all important November sweeps ratings period. Hartley, who will report to the CBS Television Center studio where "Y&R" is filmed in late September, previously portrayed the role of Fox Crane on NBC's "Passions" from 2002 to 2006.
Hot on the heels of Fox and NBC’s release of their fall 2014-2015 primetime schedules comes the reveal of ABC’s fall schedule, which includes several new series (which you can read more about here).
Out of the 26 series that ABC had in development for the 2014-2015 television season, the network has given orders to 14 of them. Eight dramas and six comedies. The new series joining ABC's recently renewed veterans include dramas "American Crime," "Forever," "How to Get Away With Murder," ""Marvel's Agent Carter," "Secrets & Lies," "The Astronaut Wives Club," "The Club" and "The Whispers," and comedies "Black-ish," "Cristela," "Fresh Off the Boat," "Galavant," "Manhattan Love Story" and "Selfie."
ABC has renewed dramas "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," "Castle," "Grey's Anatomy," "Once Upon a Time," "Resurrection," "Revenge" and "Scandal," while also picking up comedies "The Goldbergs," "The Middle," and "Modern Family" for the 2014-2015 television season. The network has yet to decide the fates of drama "Nashville" and comedy "Last Man Standing," although the likelihood of both series returning remains strong.
Former “Passions” star <b>Justin Hartley</b> (ex-Nicholas Foxworth Crane) is like a can of Pringles: Once he pops, he can’t be stopped! Hot on the heels of gigs on shows like “Revenge” and “Smallville” comes news that the star has added a new series to his resume: ABC’s “Mistresses!”
What does “Revenge’s” Emily Thorne have in common with Spider-Man, Iron Man, The Hulk, Thor and Captain America? She’ll be the star of her own comic book, of course!
While stopping short of saying the network has officially picked up new seasons of either series, Paul Lee, President, ABC Entertainment, announced Friday, January 17, during the Disney/ABC Television Group's portion of the 2014 Television Critics Association Press Tour, that "Grey's Anatomy" and "Revenge" are on solid ground to return next season with new episodes on the network. "Grey's" in particular is likely to continue "for many years to come," said Lee to reporters.
