The actor confirmed the exciting news via a tweet that reads: “It's official. Thank you all for the love and support.”
Queen Sugar is a drama series based on the novel of the same name by Natalie Baszile. The story follows the lives of two sisters, Nova Bordelon (Rutina Wesley), a tough journalist and activist from New Orleans, and Charley Bordelon (Dawn-Lyen Gardner), a mother who uproots her life in Los Angeles and moves herself and her teenage son, Micah, to Louisiana to claim an inheritance from her recently departed father -- an 800-acre sugarcane farm.
Vaughan joined the popular Oprah Winfrey-produced series in 2016 as Calvin, the longtime lover of Nova. He appeared for one season but then centered his focus on DAYS, which called him to make a return as Eric after having written him out that same year. At this time, it would appear that Vaughan's Queen Sugar stint will be limited. He is billed as a guest star in the episode that will air October 25.
