There's great news out of Oakdale: fan favorite As The World Turns couple Gwen (three-time Emmy winner Jennifer Landon) and Will Munson (Jesse Soffer) are coming back to the show! According to CBS Soaps in Depth, the pair is slated to return to the show's set in April -- which means they'll probably start airing this May.
When last seen in 2008, Gwen and Will had gone through a nasty custody battle over their adopted daughter/niece Hallie -- who was actually the biological child of Sofie Duran and Gwen's half brother Cole. After much consternation (which included a guilt-ridden Gwen giving Hallie back), Sofie realized her daughter was much better off with the Munsons ... and eventually, the trio left Oakdale to start a new life together.
Wonder what brings Gwen and Will back to town? We know Frannie Hughes (Oscar®-nominated actress Julianne Moore) is coming back for a big party ... we imagine we'll see a lot of familiar faces returning to the canvas before September.
Keep checking SOAPnet.com for more info on the Munsons' return to Oakdale as it becomes available.
