Will and Sonny fans get ready because the couple is coming back to NBC’s soap opera Days of Our Lives.
The couple is seen in the latest preview as it’s revealed they are coming back to Salem. But it already looks like there’s trouble in paradise. That’s because Sonny’s ex, Leo, is also coming back. Later in the preview, Sonny tells one of his longest friends Chad, they will have to “understand this guy’s weaknesses if we want to exploit them. Chad replies, “And how do you propose we do that?” before the two smile.
Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith) made history in 2014 when the characters got married on the hit show. It was the first time daytime TV saw a same-sex marriage. Being they are a soap opera couple, they have been through a lot, including a recast when Zachary Atticus Tinker took over the role of Sonny. A major storyline in the show was when Will suffered from memory loss and didn’t want to be with Sonny. At that time, Sonny started dating Leo. Will and Sonny have since rekindled their romance.
Massy and Smith’s portrayal of the chapters has been wildly successful. Massy has won three Daytime Emmys, including Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series. Smith has also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series.
