Fan faves Stephen Nichols (Steve) and Peter Reckell (Bo) are returning to Salem, and Digest has the scoop. “Stephen Nichols and Peter Reckell have signed deals to come back for the 50th anniversary,” Executive Producer Ken Corday tells Digest exclusively. “They represent two of the most popular characters in the history of the show.” The NBC soap will turn 50 on November 8, but look for the actors to pop up on screen well before then. Nichols was last seen in 2009; Reckell last aired in 2012. For more, pick up the next issue of Soap Opera Digest, on sale this weekend.
