The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers reveal that a familiar family will return and get back in the mix this fall. B&B fans may have heard that Delon de Metz will debut as a Zende Forrester Dominguez recast soon, so that presents some interesting questions and possibilities. Zende was married to Nicole Avant (Reign Edwards) the last time fans heard about him, so are they still together?
Time will tell, but Zende does have a link to Nicole through that marriage. Of course, Nicole is linked to all the other Avants – like Maya Avant (Karla Mosley), Julius Avant (Obba Babatunde) and Vivienne Avant (Anna Maria Horsford). It looks like the Avant family will indeed become part of the action again.
In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, B&B Head Writer and Executive Producer Bradley Bell was asked if there’s a chance any of the Avants will return. “Absolutely,” Bell insisted. “We can see Nicole, Maya… We love the Avant family. They will be making appearances throughout the fall.”
Although Bell has promised more Avant action in the past without delivering, he’ll probably follow through on his promise this time. The Bold and the Beautiful had an opportunity to plan some long-term story arcs for several characters during the shutdown. Bell has mapped everything out and knows where these stories are headed for autumn and beyond.
Naturally, Bell didn’t specify whether Reign Edwards might reprise the role of Nicole or if a recast might step in. Either way, we know that de Metz did a chemistry read with Kiara Barnes (Zoe Buckingham) via Zoom to get the part of Zende.
Something tells us Zende and Nicole’s marriage isn’t going to last – if they’re even still a couple at this point. There could easily be some jealousy and heartache on Nicole’s end, so Maya might step up to comfort her. It’s possible we’ll see some new loves for the Avant sisters as well, so that would certainly be fun.
As for Bell’s vision in the coming months, he’s looking forward to bringing viewers fantastic storylines and shockers. “We’ve got some great drama ahead, all of the fan favorites and some new faces and exciting drama,” Bell insisted. CDL will have all the latest news and updates as they come in.
