The actor first teased his new gig on the NBC soap with a tweet declaring “Coming this September!”
Later, Spears assured B&B fans that he was not leaving that soap. “I appreciate all the love, beautiful people!” he wrote. “I’ll be doing both shows. DAYS as Lt. Raines and B&B — Justin lives!”
DAYS cast member James Reynolds (Abe) tweeted “Welcome aboard” to his new co-star, and Spears replied, “Thanks James! Appreciate the love, sir!”
Look for Spears to make his DAYS debut this Friday, Sept. 9. And since Bill is in the middle of a messy divorce, he’ll likely be making more appearances on B&B in the near future, too.
