“Days of Our Lives” spoilers reveal that Chandler Massey is officially returning as Will Horton. The news was announced on Monday, and many fans are thrilled about having the actor back in Salem. Of course, the character of Will was killed off back in 2015, so it should be interesting to see how the soap brings him back to life.
According to Blasting News, “Days of Our Lives” fans will be seeing Chandler Massey reprise his role as Will Horton in September. The actor is already on set filming, and will begin airing this fall. As many viewers know, Massey, who won three Daytime Emmys for this work as Will, left the soap back in 2013. The role was then recast with actor Guy Wilson, who played Will Horton until the day he was killed by The Necktie Killer, Ben Weston.
Now, Guy Wilson is speaking out about Chandler Massey reprising the role of Will Horton, and what he says may surprise many fans.
“It’s often said that Monday’s are a drag, but all that goes out the window today because… Will Horton is returning to Days! I can not overstate the joy I feel in learning that NBC is bringing back one of the most important characters in daytime history,” Wilson said in a statement released via Twitter.
The actor when on to say, “Whether it were me, Chandler, or an entirely new recast, the worlds needs Will Horton. I couldn’t be more happy that Chandler Massey, a tremendous daytime actor and a friend to boot, is back in the saddle as the steward of such an important LGBTQ icon. Today is a great day for Days of our Lives fans. Let’s rejoice!”

Of course, Guy couldn’t end the statement without a little joke, saying, “Sorry Paul Narita, but I suspect (though cannot confirm!) you may have some competition coming your way for Sonny!”
