According to TV Guide, Joanna Johnson will make a return to The Bold and the Beautiful on January 4. That date, of course, is subject to change in the event of preemptions.
Newer viewers of The Bold and the Beautiful may not remember Johnson, as it's been the better part of a decade since the actress made her last on-air appearance.
Johnson played Caroline Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful from 1987 to 1990. She also played Caroline's twin sister, Karen, for a three-year period beginning in 1991.
Viewers who do remember the actress and her work may be wondering how Caroline can possibly reappear - she died in 1990. It's actually quite simple: she'll appear as a ghost.
According to the report from TV Guide, Johnson was asked about returning through a veritable game of "whisper down the lane." B&B executive producer Bradley Bell asked the show's supervising producer who asked Susan Flannery (Stephanie), who happens to be a close friend of Johnson. It's not known if Johnson accepted through the same chain or if she opted for the more direct route of contacting Bell.
