Adam Barlow and Daniel Osbourne returning to Coronation Street

News yesterday at the Coronation Street press day which blogger Emma and I attended was that Peter Barlow will be returning to the show.

Along with Peter will be two other Barlow boys - Ken's son Daniel Osbourne and Ken's grandson Adam Barlow. Corrie producer Kate Oates confirmed that both Daniel and Adam will be returning to the show and that castings were being made.

Ken's grandson Adam Barlow with his dad, Mike Baldwin.
Adam's mum was Ken's daughter, Susan Barlow (Peter's twin sister)

That makes three Barlow boys returning to the show. It's going to get mighty crowded inside No. 1 and I can't imagine Tracy will be happy at all.

What wasn't mentioned at the press day in Manchester yesterday about the return of the Barlow Three (as I like to call them) is why they're returning.  For one Barlow to return would be news-worthy, for two to return, a coincidence, but three? I wonder what on earth's going on.  What would bring back three members of the same family?

I have my own theory which Emma and I chewed on over a drink and a cookie in Media City after the press event. In real life, family members gather when there's good news - or bad. And as this is soap, it might just be bad. I wonder if something will happen to Ken?

Yes, probably. But as we haven't heard that Bill Roache is retiring, no doubt Ken will survive whatever life-threatening emergency brings his long-absent family members rushing to Weatherfield...

I hope they cast great actors that are also in it for the long run and create sustainable, rounded characters that aren't in it just to cause trouble or have one dimension. After all, Ken won't be about for ever, and Corrie wouldn't be Corrie without a strong Barlow clan. The Barlows should be the heart of the street - balance out the Platts!

Isn't Adam Barlow gay? In which case will he end up with Todd, Billy or Sean?

Sophie Bird said...

Also, maybe if Ken has a health scare, it will finally get him together with Audrey? Or they could all turn up at his & Audrey's wedding if they decide not to waste any more time?

Peter said...

In hoping Ken and Audrey wake up to themselves and realise they both like each other and we get an Autumn wedding. It'd be nice to have a happy time and reunion. Definite recast for Daniel, but I'm hoping they manage to get Sam Robertson back.

Cobblestone said...

No, Adam's straight. You're confusing him with James, the grandson Ken discovered, along with a son, Lawrence, by his old flame Susan.
I assume a new casting will be necessary for the role of Adam, as both previous 'Adam's have done rather well on US television.

Of course the main question is: will Adam Barlow still have a Scottish accent?

Tvor said...

Is Ken due to have a milestone birthday anytime soon? That could bring them back. Last I remember hearing about Adam, he and Peter were running a betting shop in Portsmouth so even if Peter isn't doing that anymore, Adam may still live there and Daniel likely still lives more or less locally.

I'm delighted that Chris Gascoyne is returning. Less so for Adam but if he's recast it might be ok. Daniel is just a few years older than Bethany so perhaps that will be a pairing. Jenny is on again off again with Johnny but she could be paired with Peter, they might suit each other though I think Johnny is better for her than another damaged person would be.

I am over the moon with this news! I have wanted Daniel to return for years and had completely forgotten about Adam! Really looking forward to this!!!! X

Perhaps Ken will bow out for the 66th anniversary. Big family funeral?

Sophie Bird said...

Thank you. I think I need a family tree of Ken's many hidden offspring!

Sophie Bird said...

I don't see Peter with Jenny. Maybe he'll get back together with Leanne and help her bring Steve's baby up?

Traceys kidney packs up and the boys are called to see if one of them is a match possibly?

njblas said...

Tvor: Adam was most recently said to be living in Canada. Remember when Ken disappeared for a year; he supposedly flew to Canada to help Adam recuperate after some sort of unspecified accident. As for Ken's age, Corriepedia says he will be turning 77 in October this year...

I think Ken will be marrying Audrey and they'll all be back for the wedding.

Anonymous said...

Tracy is not a Barlow by blood, she is a Langton and a Hunt so the boys cannot replenish her kidneys. Amy, though, can.

Tvor said...

Oh that's right, Adam is in Canada. I did forget that. 77 isn't a milestone so perhaps Ken gets ill. If the boys didn't return for Deirdre's funeral (well, Peter did try) then why would they bother for his wedding presuming he does marry Audrey. I hope he doesn't, I don't think they're at all suited.
