Great news for Days of our Lives fans! Alison Sweeney is on her way back to the NBC daytime drama series to reprise her role as Sami Brady!

According to Soap Opera Digest, who broke the news, Sweeney will be on set in May and June taping new episodes for an extended stay this time.

Ali told SOD on finding some time to return to DAYS: “Unfortunately this year’s been hard for me because of my knee injury, so I had to push some stuff back. So, I figured out a schedule, blocked out some time that I had available and we figured it out!”

The exciting thing this time out is to see how Sami will be written under new head writer Ron Carlivati!  In fact, Carlivati tweeted on the news: “Here comes trouble…” noting how trouble always follows Sami on screen!

So, excited for an Alison Sweeney return? What do you think will be her story when she arrives back on the canvas? Comment below.

I think DAYS hopes lapsed Sami/DAYS viewers will tune in as Sami rakes many characters over the coals, which will bring the viewers up to speed with all the characters and their storylines. And she’ll also be ushering the return of her son, Will.

Welcome back to DOOL, Alison. Her stay will only be for 2 months. The best news in a long time,. Alison is a wonderful actress, she is very busy with other projects. Maybe in the future she will return to DOOL full time. The future for Days looks more brighter with the hiring of Ron.

I’ve never been a big fan of Alison Sweeney…. Do, I thank her, for keeping afloat the show. absolutely that’s saying … a lot for a two month gig… let’s see her come between Rafe and Hope. WHY NOT ? Rafe and Hope are forced Hope is so old … baggage galore… and used up.. and she just does not stir sans the original Ciera Alice… Bo…. heck.. even Daniel Cosgrove.. built her whats going to happen to her now… with Rafe… a miracle pregnancy.. isn’t she 50+ according to “WIKI” she was born onscreen .. in 1974. she’s 43.… Read more »

PATRICK!!!! My wonderful, poetic friend!!!! Welcome back!!!! Agree with everything you have stated. You and I have always been in accord as far as Hope and Rafe are concerned. I never saw the intimate, come hither, exchange of looks…..never felt the passion. Sami, on the otherhand brought fire, stormy weather, and sunshine to every relationship. I am so tired of these ‘no clue’, go back to Mt. Olympus, soap gods portraying Hope as a youngster in her first taste of love. She’s supposed to be 43? Isn’t she a grandmother, who may end up as a great grandmother? Claire is… Read more »

This is going to be good—I know Ron is going to have Sami stirring the pot with everyone. We’re about to go for quite the ride when Ron’s shows air especially if he still uses his “surprise-a-day” technique he had on OLTL and GH.

What is the “surprise-a-day”?

James R. Poissant

Ron always put some kind of cliffhanger on every show so that you had to tune in tomorrow. Very few of his shows could be considered filler because he always added excitement. Some folks called it being plot-driven as opposed to being character-driven but alot of us didn’t care because the suspenseful moment was always fun to watch. If he still writes his shows the way he did in the past with other soaps, you’ll see what i mean very quickly. I do love this guy!!!

I want bad Sami… remember her undercover as a dude? Oh yeah, we need Bad Sami. I hope Ron enjoys Bad Sami as much as we do.

Will coming back would be fine, so long as it’s not NuWill. If Chandler won’t do it, then recast once more.

Celia

Lol, Tomas!! Yes, the undercover story was incredibly ‘stirring’….baaaad, baaaad Sami; come on down!!!!

Good news! I just wish EJ were returning with Sami.

I haven’t missed the overly dramatic “acting” or the character at all. It’s been a nice change, not having the “Sami” show, 24/7; however, TPTB have crucified the show with its onslaught of youth that cannot act, recasts, and terrible plots. I tuned in yesterday while home for lunch and saw the Chad and Abigail scenes. First, I have always LOVED Chad. The actor that plays Chad is destined for greater things. He killed those scenes. NuAbigail is dreadful. Kate Mansi was gorgeous and grew into such a strong actress. NuAbigail is meek and weak. I was rooting for Chad… Read more »

Hi, dmr, I was afraid to say anything negative about nuAbby. But, I agree. She’s not doing it for me. I have fallen for Billy Flynn since his first appearance on stage. He has gone beyond my expectations, but I see not the easiness with Marci. Their scenes together are clinical and stilted. I think the PTB saw the disconnect between Chad and nuAbby…..not working. Therefore, they are being separated. However, I do not see Chad with Gabi, either, in my opinion, albeit, I did love her and JJ together. But, the ‘bosses’ wanted Chad and Gabi as a couple;… Read more »

Its all going to matter on her storyline but the show needed a boost with Sami’s return with
the departure of Nicole to fill the void…if only Teressa would return too…

Jenn Lilley played Theresa Donovan, Mo. Brady’s wife and mother to Tate?

I hope Ron (aka Jim Reilly Jr.) does not have Sami return just being an angry, hateful bitch for no reason. Sami has grown, and has matured. Of coirse she will always have that edge….she IS Sami afterall…..but she made peace with a lot of people before she left. To have her return as a one-note, one dimensional bitter woman again would be a cheat to the show and to the fans.

‘Bout time! I wish she could convince James Scott to come back with her! Maybe he would consider a short-term return.

Celia
Guest

That would be good, as well, SZima.
I’ve ‘chanted’, more times than not, that Sami, EJ, the younger kids and Will were together ( in Switzerland?), safely ensconced in a DiMera chalet, hidden within the Alps ( LOL) until the time was right to return? Pipe dreams, I know.

Celia
Guest

Yeayyyy!!!! If only Sami could reunite with Rafe….loved these two as a couple.

Hopefully this means that real Will is also on his way back to Salem. Ron could possibly explain it that the Will we saw strangled by Ben was actually a brainwashed DiMera doppleganger (as much as I’d hate going that route again, I’d accept it if it meant getting a legacy character back that never should have been killed off in the first place). The switch could have been made when Will was in LA writing that screenplay. It would also explain his OOC behavior when he returned. Oh well, I can dream, can’t I?

Celia
Guest
Celia

Love your scenario, PF. Stefano did it with Rafe; why not Will? I’d prefer Chandler, but, as you point out, regardless of the actor, any legacy character will be welcomed.
Funny how we both had the same thought? ….down to the dreaming, LOL.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

But like i said long ago, Will was revived off camera and has been in a coma…he will probably wake up and show up at the wedding of Sonny and Paul in predictable fashion!!!

Celia
Guest

@Jimh.
Yes, you did, Jimmy. We both agreed on that, as I had said the same thing. Sami had Will stashed away somewhere as he recouped.

If Chandler is brought back, then I’d like to see his marriage to Sonny re-done, correctly this time, with the correct actor playing Will.

I’m glad she’s returning. By the time her episodes air we will be well into Carlavatis stories and this may just be the icing the cake needs. .time will tell. .although it’s telling she’s filming already. .we’ll see. The man has an ego the size of Texas so I’m cautiously optimistic with him and this news.

Show is awful right now – hate to say it, but that’s how I feel – the writing is thin and tired – the acting, overall is certainly more than passable with the exception of some of the teens – but the storylines are just atrocious. This plot involving Nicole hiding out with the baby until some guy remembers that she was once Misty Circle – I mean, honestly, it’s beyond absurd.

Please don’t bring back that annoying Allison Sweeny I was so glad to see the back end of her. Clyde and Ben were another pair that did not add to the show. Surely the writers can create some better characters. I know I am not the only person who feels this. These annoying characters are gone so please leave it that way, particularly that Sweeny woman. If these characters come back I will find a new soap to watch
Because I can’t bear the stupidity of the Sweeny woman and her acting is the pits.

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”

 

So, are you sad that Kristina will be gone for DAYS on-screen after today?  Share your thoughts om this, her final airdate, via the comment section below.

James Scott Comments: “I Will Never. Never. Never. Never. Never, Go Back to Hollywood Let Alone DOOL”

Those hoping that finally James Scott would return to his signature daytime soap role of EJ DiMera on Days of our Lives, now that Alison Sweeney is on her way back to the show this fall for a longer run as Sami, can count those hopes now dashed and for good.

In a post on his Instagram account for his meditation and contemplations Sunday morning Zoom series and website, Scott posed with Deepak Chopra.  When a fans posted a comment in the IG account how they miss him on DAYS and to come back with Sami, James replied, “Hi – thanks for joining me here. Please know that I will never. Never. Never. Never. Never. Go back to Hollywood let alone DOOL. There is notbing interesting there for me. J”

Fan favorite James Scott, who has been MIA from the acting profession for awhile now is running The Whisper Within – and as detailed by the website, Scott explains how he left acting to be more involved with meditation and helping others find inner-peace – “In 2014, after a successful career in the entertainment industry, I found myself with everything and nothing.  I had money, celebrity, and status and the grief to match it. I had worked tirelessly for the better part of two decades to attain wealth and validation, yet no external thing could touch the emptiness I felt and the worthlessness I experienced.  I knew that something unknown wished to be known—something I could feel only through its apparent absence. In my despair and depression, I faced a simple choice: to change my lived experience or to end it. One felt impossible; the other easy I had already spent so much time reading self-help books, attending workshops and retreats, drinking concoctions with shamans, exploring tantra and abstaining from sex all together, dancing and singing, and many more practices, which had done little or nothing to abate the loneliness.

 

Desperate and in despair, still seeking, still suffering, I found my way to an Indian meditation center. I went for a week and stayed for a year. It was there in my own reflection that I found the teacher I had been seeking silently waiting to be known. At first, there was rage and anger, but eventually the intensity of the fire burned low and sadness took its place. I cried and cried until I cried myself empty and something new arose: beneath it all, I discovered a newfound peace. Like a fragrance arising from deep within, I heard the sound of the silence that can never be spoken: the eternal wisdom of the whisper within.  To live from this place is my practice and my path. To inspire others to do the same is my purpose.”

So, what do you think about James’ comments and path that he has now gone down for his life?  Do you think its time for DAYS to finally re-cast EJ? Comment below.
