"The Bold and the Beautiful" spoilers tease that Katie Logan will be sticking around for at least another year on the CBS daytime soap opera. "B&B" fans have wondered if Tom would sign a new contract because Katie's future was unknown. Heather exclusively told Soap Opera Digest that there was no reason to worry about Katie because she inked a new deal that would keep her around for "quite some time." 

Why Heather Tom is staying put

Heather Tom revealed that she plans to stay in her role of Katie Logan because "The Bold and the Beautiful" feels like home to her. She went on to say that she cannot wait to see what kind of drama and interesting plots the writers will come up with for Katie.

Right now, Katie's future is shaky because she just went through a very painful divorce with Bill Spencer (Don Diamont). Tom went on to state that she has been with CBS/Sony for almost 26 years, and cannot imagine leaving the network for any other show. 

Heather has kept busy doing side jobs as a director in the past few years and really enjoys the change of pace. Even though she finds this type of work enjoyable, she noted that she still gets "chills" when she gets in front of the camera to tape a well-written script. 

What's next for Katie?

Heather said a few months ago that she hoped that the writers give Katie a major storyline that didn't center around any man or marriage. She thought Katie needed to find herself before she plunged into another romance. Recently, the show paired her up with Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) in a scheme to get Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) to sign off Bill's Forrester Creations shares after their marriage.

For now, Ridge and Katie have a close friendship, but Kaye recently dished that the possibility of it deepening to something more was high. 

Katie's next chapter looks promising, and "The Bold and the Beautiful" viewers hope that she will become stronger and more self-reliant due to her experience with Bill and Brooke. "B&B" fans, are you glad that Heather Tom will be sticking around as Katie Logan?
