This Thursday, August 1st the first season will drop on The DOOL App and will be revolving around the fan-favorite characters Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abby (Kate Mansi). "Chad and Abby in Paris" will have eight episodes. Three of which will drop on August 1st with the remaining episodes coming over the next few weeks. The companion show written by Ron Carlivati will be available on the NBC app and NBC.com one week after landing on The DOOL App.
In the first season, fans will get the unique opportunity to catch up with Chad and Abby for the first time since they left Salem several months ago before they make their long-awaited return to the show.
