I know you're taking over the role of Sonny Kiriakis. You're going to have an absolute blast. He's an awesome character and it's such an important storyline. I know you're going to crush it so have fun and I can't wait to check it out on Peacock."
Smith revealed earlier that the reason that he would not return to the show. "If they would have offered me a contract and there was no pandemic and they offered me a contract in February 2020, I would have said yes for one more year and I would have let them know, like, 'Hey, I'm gonna do one more year but this is going to be it for me.' The reason I would have done just one more year was Alyssa and I wanted to get married. We are thinking about starting our family and we wanted to be closer to our family and being in Los Angeles and trying to be an actor forever and being away from the family while raising a kid; I kinda, we had that discussion for many years where we were just trying to find a way when was the perfect time to leave and go to Florida."
