Lauralee Bell and Michael Damian are trading the stormy weather of Genoa City for the endless sun of Los Angeles.

The Young and the Restless actors will appear onThe Bold and the Beautiful for a crossover in August. Bell is set to reprise her role as Cricket and Danny will once again be playing Danny for two episodes, per Entertainment Weekly. According to the synopsis, “Danny and Christine Cricket are invited to the Forrester Estate for a party celebrating the success of the relaunch of Brooke Logan’s (Katherine Kelly Lang) 'Brooke's Bedroom' fashion line… or so they think."

"Little do Danny and Christine know, Brooke and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) have invited them to pitch a new business venture,” the synopsis continues. “Not to be outdone, Danny decides to give a surprise performance of his own to share with the partygoers."

In an interview with Us Weekly — which was first to report the news — Bell expressed excitement about the upcoming crossover.

“We’re all so excited,” Bell, 55, told the outlet. “What we’re doing is so authentic to the story.”

The actress also explained that the idea came from her brother Bradley Bell, an executive producer and head writer on The Bold and the Beautiful, adding that he “saw we were doing something on Y&R and he thought this would be great for B& -

B.”

The crossover also makes sense given that the character Danny, a musician, would “have a concert in L.A.” Bell also hinted that viewers will see Cricket in a “very rockstar’s girlfriend” outfit.

Cricket and Danny's initial reunion on The Young and the Restless in November 2023 was a long-held dream by many viewers, Bell previously told PEOPLE.

“We have fans that have been saying in the last couple weeks, I've waited 30 years for Cricket and Danny to get back together. Waited 30 years!” she says.

Bell, who also celebrated 40 years on the soap in November, also told PEOPLE that four decades has “gone by in a blink.”

“When I started, I was a kid to them, and now, to be able to speak with everybody in an adult relationship, knowing their kids and their having watched our kids grow up, it's so special,” she says. “I've spent 40 years with some of these people and have loved every minute of it."
