ANNOUNCEMENT FROM SUNGREY -- NETWORK CHANGE

Hey everyone... As Nancy Hughes might have said on ATWT before CBS broke in with a news bulletin, "I gave it a great deal of thought..." I have decided to end production of Somerset on SON after 44 episodes. However, that is not the end of the serial as you knew it.

HE'S BACK!

Just when you thought he had given up... just when you thought he'd freeze his characters in time, never to return... HE'S BACK. Somerset creator and headwriter Steve Ungrey is here to tell the blog readers that reports of his departure were greatly exaggerated. He tells SONBC that Somerset is indeed returning with new episodes, beginning with Episode 40. SONBC: Tell us what prompted you to stop writing. Sungrey: It was those fans. Those damn fans, I tell ya. (Laughs) No, just kidding.

Point Palace to follow Somerset

Beginning with Episode 41, Point Palace will be listed as the soap following Somerset on the "SONBC daytime lineup". This change is due to the suspension of production for Salem Lives.
