It’s a brand new year in the land of soap operas, and while things are heating up on daytime television, now is also the time to predict what may unfold in 2016. Will Jack and Victor from The Young and the Restless (Y&R) finally put their vendettas to rest? Will Stefano from Days of Our Lives (DOOL) continue to torture John Black and the Bradys? Will Sonny from General Hospital (GH) ever walk again? It’s hard say, but one thing that may be predictable are the soap characters that could hook up in 2016. Below are some potential 2016 soap opera couples that may just rock the daytime world this year.
7. Chelsea and Nick – Young and the Restless
There was a tease of a potential couple swap between the Newman brothers on the Y&R in late 2015, and it doesn’t seem too farfetched that these two could hook in 2016. Both are incredibly attractive, successful, seem to have similar values, and could have great chemistry together. Chelsea gets along well with the Newman clan, in fact, they all seem to like her more than her current love, estranged Newman brother Adam and Victoria. It’s also not a huge stretch for Nick and Adam to swap mates within the family. Nick dated his ex-wife’s sister (Avery) at one point in time, and Adam was madly in love with Nick’s former wife, high school love, and mother of his kids, Sharon.Press Association Picture Perfect/REX
