I donīt think this is the same info. "Will remain" means something different than "is still". His contract ends on December 18 thatīs only two weeks from now. If he is leaving the show really doesnīt have any reason to play dumb.

That's been up a couple of days. My question still is: "willl remain" until when? I've yet to see anything that indicates he signed a new contract. I don't see why it's so hard for the soap "press" to get an answer to and subsequently report said answer to that question. Perhaps it's too much of a habit of mine to parse statements, but to me saying he'll "remain," when the same mag previously reported he cleared out his dressing room and actors were already in for possible recasts, could very well mean only that he's "remaining" until the end of his current contract. Maybe I'm just too used to the sports world, but when, for example, an NBA player signs a new deal there's a press release and there's no confusion or guessing about it. Now, if there hadn't been the prior report about JKJ supposedly walking off and possible recasts, I wouldn't be so skeptical about the wording--but with that prior report, I have to wonder why they don't just come out and say he signed a new deal.
Yeah, this isn't any new info. The news from the 12/9 issue was already posted and the magazine didn't have any new information either. We still don't know anything more than that he is still filming and will be until his contract runs out.
The only source that has said he signed a new deal is Daytime Confidential. Usually if something like that is true, SOD will confirm it on there website within a couple of days. They still haven't done that.
Besides, the SOW article about the bloodbath talks about KA and PR being asked to take paycuts but there is no answer if they accepted or not as well, while we already know from Kristian herself she and Peter are staying. Iīm willing to bet in the upcoming SOW will be exactly the same story daytime confidental already reported.
