As for Beemer, a return date for the actor has yet to be announced, but he's expected to hit the canvas in the early part of this year."I couldn't be happier to be working with such a wonderful group of people.So we were forced into making the decision." Luckily, Shawn's other popular portrayer, Beemer, was available."[Otherwise] Shawn would have left and we wouldn't have been able to tell a Shawn/Belle/Philip story," Corday continues. With the advent of another character coming back to the show mid-year, it's going to make the Shawn/Belle/Philip dynamic even more interesting." As fans already know, the returning character Corday mentions is most likely Nadia Bjorlin, who will be reprising the role of Chloe Lane later this year.Besides, Shawn will probably have his doubts about the idea of Bo (Peter Reckell) abandoning Hope.Shawn will likely believe there’s a reasonable explanation for Bo’s absence.Of course, it’s also possible that Beemer wasn’t available or the NBC soap simply wanted to start fresh after Cook’s departure.
"He couldn't be on our show and do movies every two months or something like that.
That means we’ll be seeing a Shawn recast once Cook finishes his latest run on DOOL.
We don’t know for sure who will be taking over the role, but Brandon Beemer is good possibility.
Bo wouldn’t just stay away for that long without getting in touch with anyone.
Viewers know that Bo has been held against his will, but he’ll soon make it back to reunite with his family.
