Sally Spectra is saying goodbye to Los Angeles and hello to Genoa City!
Courtney Hope, who has played the fashion designer for three years on The Bold and the Beautiful, will be joining the cast of The Young and the Restless, CBS announced Wednesday.
Hope’s Sally will arrive in Genoa City “looking to make a fresh start, while doing her best to keep her colorful past a secret,” the network revealed. Sally “comes to town with an agenda and some surprising connections to key players, including Lauren Fenmore (Tracey Bregman).”
Sally was last seen on The Bold and the Beautiful in August when she fled Genoa City after her plan to win her ex Wyatt back failed.
Of the crossover, co-executive producer and head writer Josh Griffith said: “We really enjoyed Courtney’s work on The Bold and the Beautiful. Sally Spectra is a colorful character that fans love watching. We are excited for her to stir things up in Genoa City and join our talented cast.”
Sally will officially arrive in Genoa City on Tuesday, Nov. 3.
