"Susan, for quite some time, was thinking she needed a break or just have some personal time," Executive Producer/Head Writer Bradley P. Bell tells Digest exclusively.

Now, Susan is going to have an incredible time with a new storyline that we've never seen before; something completely unique and interesting.
