Familiar faces and returns has become just one element that makes Days of our Lives must-see daytime television these days.  You can now officially add Brandon Beemer’s name to that list, who has made a return to the iconic series that is celebrating its golden anniverary this week.

As fans became aware, Jason Cook (who originated the role of Shawn-Douglas Brady) came back to tape episodes of DAYS for it’s anniverary arc, and for what has been speculated as a two-month run.  Since Cook has already left the show, the series continued to write story to include Bo  (Peter Reckell) and Hope’s (Kristian Alfonso) son, and brought back Cook’s original replacement, Brandon Beemer to the role.

Beemer was seen in a cast photo at Monday’s on set cast/crew 50th anniversary celebration.  As well, Brandon was at this past weekend’s 50th anniversary party at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.

You can expect Brandon to return on air sometime in early 2016.  Beemer follows his longtime DAYS co-star Martha Madison (Belle) back to Salem.  Madison will be back airing in episodes at the end of this month.

So, excited to hear that Brandon is back as Shawn Brady?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Why didnt Cook stay…but it doesnt bother me one way or another as long as the show remains good…hopefully, the serial killer story ends soon…its run its course imo and time to move on!

Jason Cook didn’t want to stay long-term. He says he working on other projects and wants to go into directing. I guess acting isn’t his main focus right now.

that’s a shame, I wish Jason Cook would have been open to staying for a few years. He just has this charm, this special quality to him, and seeing him back on our screens has made me want MORE of him, not Beemer. Why oh why? Days should’ve just allowed Jason Cook to pop in and out. He’s that GOOD!
Leading man material.

Sounds just like Kim-GHs Robin who prefers directing but still makes acting visits to her show…im ok with BB returning to the role…used to both actors in the role anyway…thanks for the info!

Ugh! I might have to start watching that cluster**** of a show again. Beemer has one of the most gorgeous bodies I have EVER seen … and summer is only seven months away.

Jimh, I totally agree; especially about the serial killer story ending soon. I can’t stand it! I hate seeing Abby handcuffed in that cabin with her deranged boyfriend freaking out every ten seconds. I ff through those scenes. The rest of DAYS, I love.

I always liked him and thought he was a good replacement so I’m glad to see he’s coming back. But it will seem a little weird right after Jason Cook reprised the role for the anniversary.

Well that’s cool. I’m sad that the original Shawn D. was not back for good but only two months, but at least the replacement will be a familiar face. Glad that we will have Phillip, Shawn D and Belle back.

The way I understand it is Jason only agreed to a couple month visit for which he was accommodated. Then the writers decided they wanted a longterm storyline involving Shawn-Douglas, but Jason refused to stay because he has other projects/prospects.

LOL damien he is NOT the only person who could EVER play the role. If soaps operated by that method there wouldn’t ever be long term characters if only one actor can be seen in the role. .you can count those actors and their characters on one hand who were never replaced for decades. ..OK two hands lol

DAYS is intent on just rehashing disposable characters. Why don’t they cancel first run episodes and just show repeats of old shows with the same old boring characters and tedious story lines…but hey do what you gotta do …..

No. I really didn’t like him as Shawn. I liked him on B&B, but not Days.

I never have watched B&B, but I didn’t like B.B. as Shawn. Maybe he grew as an actor and the great writing on DAYS will help us with the transition.

I am so happy to just have confirmation. Brandon is amazing and I’m glad he’s back. 🙂

I like either Shawn. They are similar enough in looks, and while Jason and Kirsten were good as young Shawn and Belle, Brandon and Martha were seamless recasts into a more mature Shawn and Belle. One of the few times where both characters playing a couple were recast and the couple remained popular. But that chick they brought on for about a month as Belle….WOW…was she frickin terrible!!!!! That was between Kirsten and Martha, and to be fair, she was forced to spout James E. Reilly’s absurd, moronic writing. That crap could be the death of many lesser actors. I… Read more »

I like both Jason Cook & Brandon Beemer in role Shawn D. Both bought different side to the role. Overall it’s matter of taste.

‘Days of our Lives’ to Honor James Reynolds’ 40th Anniversary as Abe Carver with Special Episode

As DAYS viewers witnessed on Friday’s episode, Abe has been shot in the park, after Carmine pulls out a gun, and Jake (Brandon Barash) tries to apprehend him.  Jake rushes to Abe’s side and calls an ambulance and he is rushed to University Hospital.  Once there, Abe eventually flatlines, while Lani (Sal Stowers), Paulina (Jackee Harry) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are besides themselves with worry.

This sets the stage for Monday’s episode where Abe will go into the light, as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) works to save his light and while he hovers between life and death, DAYS fans are treated to the special 40th anniversary episode of James Reynolds as Salem’s Abe Carver.   The Daytime Emmy-winning actor, (he won Lead Actor in 2018) began his Salem journey when he first aired back on October 29th, 1981.

While Abe revisits the past, he will meet up with his late wife and love of his life, Lexie, only according to Soap Opera Digest, Renee Jones was not available to be a part of the milestone episode. So, in a pivot another actress was brought in.

Reynolds told SOD on the Lexie appearance, “The young actress they brought in to be part of this was just wonderful“n giving the essence of (their) relationship and communicated beautifully, just beautifully, in her face and her eyes, as Renee did quite so often.”  He added, “I was kind of transported, actually.”

In addition, James continues to be the the longest-running black actor in the same role in television history.

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.
