I am SO happy to hear this! Ron HATED writing for vets on GH….but DAYS is different as it has always retained and maintained its basic core! Shawn and Belle are a part of that! They should be like the Mike and Nancy from Edge of Night…or Eden and Cruz from Santa Barbara…that happily married couple who get embroiled in everyone else”s messes and dramas…solve the problems…and remain a happy couple. If I swear…..if Ron digs up Jan Spears…then I sincerely hope the show is cancelled!!

Completely agree with the Nancy/Mike, Eden/Cruz idea.

Lol I had to look up Jan Spears, and just the fact that I had to look her up is proof that they don’t need her, in my opinion as well. I have to say to Ron’s defense on GH he is still considered to be the main person responsible for keeping it on the air when he got there, and he not only wrote for vets at the beginning but even juggled characters from OLTL until that horrible Prospect Park got their non promise keeping grubby dishonest hands on them, and then the lawsuit, where he was forced to… Read more »

Yeah, blake….good to see familiar faces. I wonder what their return means for Claire.

Well, it will take over 6 months to find out..
that’s so crazy the way it plays for half a year before new stuff can get in..
wonder what the reason for the 6 month span is..

Maybe we are building up the core family units again with legacy characters and popular talents. DAYS needs that. Just please give them something meaningful to do and do not shuffle them in and out hurriedly. Take a lesson from the Y&R revival. I like what I see in Genoa City.

I absolutely agree. Y&R has improved considerably under Mal Young and Sally Sussman. I said from the time Shawn and Belle were ushered off the canvas that they should be at the top of Ron C’s return list, and here they are! They’re two of the shows best characters and they are both talented actors. Ron said in a recent interview that he wants to write for the vets, and it looks like he’s going to deliver. I hope they are offered contracts and stick around for the long haul.

Good thoughts, Iakovos. You’re right….Days does need legacy characters. We barely see the ‘steady’ ones.

As Yogi Berra famously said, “It’s deja vu all over again”. Didn’t we just go through this revolving door of returning and exiting vets? Ron’s writing can be brilliantly nuanced and also insufferably over the top. I tuned in to see his material debut this week and saw no noticeable change in tone or substance. I was seriously put off by the wacky factor of having the character of Hattie suddenly appear front and center again. Having beloved vets return is in and of itself not a harbinger of great storytelling. The way Days has been going they could feature… Read more »

Sorry but I thought these two characters were as dull as dish water – I didn’t miss them at all (no offense to the actors portraying them intended) – it’s just that, they seemed to constantly re-hash the same on-again, off again romance between them. If other viewers are happy to see them back on the canvas, I guess that’s fine by me but I didn’t find them captivating at all.

Exactly. At least belle isn’t with Phillip. That really stunk up the place. I agree, keep these two apart. I thought Shawn had places to go with Lani. This time around they must show Belle interacting WITH her parent’s, John N Marlena. I’m glad they’re back. Martha Madison has grown on me

Shawn and Belle, children of two supercouples, should be leading. I’m hoping they’re back longterm!!

I couldn’t have said it better, 4ever! You’re the first person I thought of when Ron came, because I knew if you loved the show already no matter what regime, then imagine how much diehard fans/supporters like yourself will love it when a fresh writer comes on with new energy and isn’t just wiping out history and rewriting it to serve his/her needs, but the total opposite, respecting previous story, making new ones, AND writing for the vets in a way that’s so respectful that it looks like a brand new season of the soap! The show has it’s fair… Read more »

I’m very excited that tptb listened to the fans deafening screams of getting a writer that fits the shape of the show, and wants to write for vets. The returns alone and the excitement of the cast and the specific things they’ve said about the new energy on the set and even being excited to read the whole script just tells me this was the right decision, and I thank and respect Sony for doing what needs to be done to take the best care possible of the soaps we have left, by getting writers for Y&R and Days that… Read more »

DAYS Brandon Barash On Stefan’s Resurrection: “You’ll See Some Revenge, Corporate Takeovers, Losing a Memory … Maybe Gaining of Memories”

Dr. Rolf is at it again on Days of our Lives! While Jake DiMera has met his maker, apparently his twin brother, Stefan O DiMera is coming back to life.  That sets the stage for Brandon Barash to reprise his original DAYS role.

In a brand new interview with his on-screen brother, Dan Feuerriegel (EJ) on the Days of our Lives You Tube Channel, Barash talks on what viewers can expect once Stefan is completely back in action, and how he feels about taking on the darker twin once again.

Brandon teased: “You’ll see some revenge, corporate takeovers, losing a memory … maybe gaining of memories.”  With Stefan back in the DiMera mix, look for the two brothers to not always see eye-to-eye. Barashs shared that they’ll be, “Butting heads for sure”.

Meanwhile, will Stefan and his true love, Gabi (Camila Banus) reunite once she knows he is alive? Barash weighs-in on that and more ‘burning’ questions.

You can check out the chat below.

Now, let us know, are you glad that Stefan O DiMera is back on the Salem canvas? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

BREAKING NEWS: Days of our Lives Ending Its Run on NBC, Moving to Peacock Starting in September

In a major move, Days of our Lives, the longest-running scripted series of all-time on NBC, is exiting the television network and will now be in its new home on the NBCUniversal streaming platform, Peacock.

The shift marks the end of DAYS’ nearly 57 year-run on broadcast television. Days of our Lives debuted on NBC back on November 8th, 1965.

Look for all-new episodes daily of the series to begin on Peacock starting on September 12th, along with the show’s library already available to stream for Peacock Premium subscribers.  According to a press release from Peacock, “The historic move to Peacock creates the ultimate destination for daytime fans to access the library, new episodes and Peacock Original Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem in one place.”

In its place, NBC will fill the daytime drama’s current timeslot with NBC News Now, an hour-long news show anchored by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen and Morgan Radford. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC affiliates will also have the option to add local news to the hour.

In a statement, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming chairman Mark Lazarus shares: “This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement. With a large percentage of the Days of Our Lives audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fanbase on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

NBC’s decision means it leaves only three daytime soaps on American broadcast TV: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. 

DAYS has found recent streaming success with its limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapters 1 and 2, which introduced the viewing audience to the Peacock platform.

To watch Days of our Lives on Peacock, you will need a premium-tier paid subscription at $4.99 per month. The service offers an an ad-free experience at $9.99 per month.

We will have more on this developing story.

So, what do you think of NBC removing DAYS from its daytime line-up, while moving it to their owned-streaming platform, Peacock? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Brandan Barash Shares Reaction to Jake’s Death on Days of our Lives: “It Was Fun Getting To Know You”

This week on Days of our Lives, Jake (Brandon Barash) met his untimely demise, when he was shot by a mugger.  Thus, signaling what would seem to be the end of the line for the character.

However, on today’s episode of the NBC soap opera, Jake visited a grieving Ava (Tamara Braun), so perhaps there is more than a ‘ghost of a chance’ that Barash is sticking around.

As previewed exclusively last month during our virtual interview with DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati …the Salem scribe revealed there would be another death in Salem, following the murder of Abigail Deveraux DiMera (Marci Miller), and the character would be ‘dead-dead’.

However, speculation is running wild that with the return of Dr. Rolf, that perhaps Jake will be resurrected … or Barash will once again play Jake’s twin, Stefan O. DiMera!

On Instagram, Barash had some fun with Jake’s demise with comparison side-by-side photos – one of which features Barash as Jake covered in blood, and reading the Handbook for the Recently Deceased!

Barash captioned his pic: “How it started/how it’s going. #ripjake It was fun getting to know you. 🙏🥃”

So, what do you think about DAYS killing Jake? Do you think Brandon will be sticking around Salem? If so, as who? Comment below.
