Bam! Days of our Lives storylines are ramping up under new head writer Ron Carlivati with an exciting return by none other than multi-Daytime Emmy winner Chandler Massey!

Massey,who is beloved by DAYS fans is apparently reprising his role of Will Horton, even though the character was murdered on-screen when the character was played by Guy Wilson, following Massey’s exit from the show in 2013.

According to EW.com, who broke the news on Monday, “Massey returned to work in the last month. His first episode will air sometime in September.”

“I am so excited to be bringing Will back to Salem!” Massey told EW. “I can’t wait for the fans to see what we have planned. You won’t want to miss it!”

Head writer Ron Carlivati teased Massye’s return with this tweet “Whaaaattt??? #WillHortonIsDead #OrIsHe #HowCanThisBe #TuneInAndFindOut @nbcdays @ChandlerMassey @Ali_Sweeney #Days #Dool #DaysOfOurLives

So, what do you think DAYS fans? Is Will alive?  Is Will dead?  Let us know your thoughts on the return of Chandler Massey in the comment section below!

I knew it from the time Will was “murdered.”

I said it would happened right when he was murdered…i told posters he probably was in a coma after someone off camera noticed him still breathing or having a faint pulse…the funeral was fake…only Sami knew he was alive!”..He will probably return when Paul and Sonny are getting married!!!

Yes, yes, yes………all of us who wished and prayed and hoped for Chandler to come ‘alive’ are jumping for joy. Thank you, soap gods for listening!!!!!!!
I have always maintained with you, Jimmy and 4ever that Will was not dead. He has been with Sami, EJ and the kids, all this time….LOL.
Do you remember how some said that Sami did not seem to be in much distress over her son’s death? This is why. TPTB probably knew all along Will would materialize sooner or later, and told Sami to tone it down? Maybe?
Ok, guys, let’s celebrate….raise your glass y’all. Cheers!!

You sure did, Jimmy! I’m still hoping for a coma instead of a doppelganger scenario.

this will all coincide with Sami coming home for two months

the return of her beloved son… bringing him HOME.

it’s going to be one of the best returns … legacy character , absolutely

a relative newbie who can act

and just a cutie petutie…. with Sonny.. AND Paul

RIGHT (& WRITE) THAT WRONG, RON!!! Will should have NEVER been killed off. I loved Nick too, but they eulogize Nick way more than they do Will and Will was so much more of a crucial character to the fabric of the show and its history.

I can’t wait to see CM back. He ran out of steam at the end of his last run, but I hope time and distance allowed him to gain a new perspective and appreciation.

This is such great news, and I just feel Ron can do it better than anyone.

He never should have been killed. I’m guessing that the recast wasn’t entirely satisfying for fans, which meant trouble for the character. I recall Mr. Corday saying that once a character is dead he’s not bringing them back to life. For once the eating of crow couldn’t be more satisfying. Bringing him back is the right thing for the show. I hope Sonny Paul stay together and that will rolls in to town with a new beau. (I’m so tired of pointless triangles. Days seems to have these in spades right now.) The character deserves a better storyline than oh… Read more »

To get Will back i think the fans can forgive Ken Corday for going back on his word that once a character on Days dies they’ll stay dead.Plus Corday could say he said under a different writing team and so what he said no longer counts.

Maybe some time away and just enjoying college life has helped Chandler and he’s coming back to some meaty story i’m sure.So maybe Chandler getting meaty story again will challenge him to step up his game and not just go through the motions during the end of his first one.

ChandlerFan

Naturally, I’m extremely pleased at this development. I’m hoping that they do indeed give Chandler significant meaty material to perform. My fear is that they will fill his time with nonsense drivel, to appease the easily-offended pearl-clutching blue-haired old ladies in the audience, as they did for the last 6 months of his previous run. Despite actively TRYING to continue watching the show in Chandler’s absence, it was too difficult to withstand. Even if the show does wimp out of a meaningful story line for Will, I will still reward the show anyway by resuming watching it regularly again (commercials… Read more »

A good time to thank you Michael – as your site gave us Will fans a place to air our discontent about “Kill Will”. It’s been a long road as Days doubled-down into darkness.

Thank goodness that Ron Carlivati is making moves to set the Days’ world aright! Thank you Mr Carlivati!

Count this fan very excited and happy! And I’m so excited to see Chandler back on my screen.

Chandler Massey, as Will Horton, on Days of Our Lives – one of my favorite things ever!

I stopped watching when they killed Will. So there’s eyeballs coming back right there!

The best news in a long time, I heard rumours than Ron wants to bring back old Favourite characters. Chandler is a terrific actor. Bring back Vivian Alamain and Anna Dimera full time on contract. I miss my madam, also bring back Ivan. They were so funny together.

Jimmy
Guest
Jimmy

Ah, Vivian! I miss her so much! It would be great to have her back. I would also like to see Shawn, Belle, Austin and Carrie all brought back on contract, and rehire Julie Pinson as Billie – she fit the role MUCH better than Lisa Rinna, who can’t act to save her life, and who looks like she could be Lauren Koslow’s sister, not daughter. And while we’re at it, how about Chelsea and Max, too?

AWESOME NEWS! I don’t care what kind of story they come up with to explain that Will is not dead. Just so glad Chandler is back! Just wish we didn’t have to wait so long for him to air.

Sorry Paul. Not sorry.

Probably off camera someone notice Will was still breathing or he moved or moaned but was in a coma…to keep him safe from the killer his funeral was faked but only Sami knew all this!!!…i posted he was alive right after Will was ‘murdered’!!!

Who didnt think this would be Ron Carlivati’s first storyline? I am not a fan of this type of writing. When we cant even trust or believe what we are shown on screen, it lessens the emotional impact and connection. Years ago….there was DEAD….and then there was Soap Dead. Now there is only Soap Dead. Jim Reilly forever ruined DEAD for the soap genre with his 2003-2004 serial killer story. I am completely neutral on Will coming back. I much preferred Guy Wilson’s take on the role, as he was much more like a son of Lucas and Sami would… Read more »

Hmmmm….very interesting thought, Richard. I’d rather see Lumi than Lucas and Adrienne. But, what about Rafe? And EJ? It would be a treat to see three grown men at Sami’s mercy. ……how about Sami regressing to her ‘wicked’ ways? LOL.

Richard

Ron has said Sami is going to be getting her bad girl edge back! I hope they also age the twins, Johnny and Allie! That would give Lucas something to do!! Allie could be Salem’s new bad girl and be a rival of Claire’s and Ciara!

This is fantastic news! Not only can we welcome back Will Horton, but also welcome back the back-from-the-dead stories that Ron C is famous for. He did it plenty of times on GH, and with any luck, maybe we can get EJ and Kristen back on DAYS too! Will should have never been killed off in the first place, though I doubt it was actually Will who died. My bet is on Andre having switched the real Will, keeping him kidnapped and held hostage somewhere, and replacing him with a doppelganger – like Stefano did with Rafe a few years… Read more »

RC is the Jesus Christ of daytime drama, resurrecting everyone. LOL I will allow some fixes as DAYS needs them (and Chandler Massey as Will is welcome in Salem again), but please, please, no endless crazy plots and hard-to-believe twists and turns. I like the family vibe DAYS has, much like what we had on the P&G soaps. I am weary of reliance on convenient resurrections and dubious parentages and baby switches.

This is great news. I am looking forward to seeing which storylines get axed after Ron takes over. I can no longer take Nicole being kidnapped or Brady having a SECOND heart transplant. Last week when Lani was with the crazy guy, I found myself screaming at the TV. Why was JJ and the other officer standing in a park and in the town square listening to the conversation. Why not outside the hotel room? I just want some things to make sense. Please make this a GREAT storyline that is not rushed to accommodate Allison Sweeney’s schedule. I would… Read more »

I don’t know what to say. I am glad that Will is coming back but how do we take the explanation when we saw the brutal murder of the character? I knew Ron would blow us away just like he did when he wrote for GH but I never expected this. Makes me wonder if Ben Weston will also pop up to do some more menacing. I don’t care how this plays out because no matter what, it’s always going to be something that gets me excited. I’m a big fan of Ron’s writing!!!

i’m wondering if DAYS would create a new character for Tanya Boyd… and be Vanessa mother ?

Celeste left Salem… in 2012 , after ; LOVED Lexie died.

Me too Mo but now that I think about it the story most likely will not only involve Will’s shock return from the dead but it almost certainly will involve the real death of another beloved Brady family member…Grandma Caroline…which means Theresa may pop back up too. Peggy McKay’s long absence will be addressed and I think this is why the returns.

ChandlerFan
Guest
ChandlerFan

Did Stefano ever learn that the elder Weston was indirectly responsible for EJ’s death, and directly involved in covering up EJ’s murder?

I thought for sure they were setting up some kind of big revenge scenario for Stefano, but if so, I must have missed it.

I just couldn’t stomach watching more than a few minutes of the show here and there, after they unceremoniously got rid of Chandler, and even moreso after they literally put Chandler’s replacement into a garbage bag. (That one leaves a bitter aftertaste, that I hope against reason that Chandler’s return will cure.)

Okay, this is Ron— I remember his days on GH– big time teasers, promises of big names coming back — but in the end, most returns lasted a couple of months at most, so although I am glad they are correcting the horrible mistake of killing a legacy character off– before I jump for joy for his return I will wait to see what the story is, and how long it lasts— BUT HONESTLY DAYS–giving out a teaser MONTHS away is so ahhhh don’t have words– either bump up the filming schedule or else try to keep things under wraps—… Read more »

ROFL..but i agree if you put a cat in a bag then let us be surprised when it finds it’s way out. Don’t just say watch this and simply pick the bag up and dump the cat back out onto the floor. What was the point? Your cryptically goofy tweet? No thanks. What a shock if we hadn’t known. On the other hand you gotta get viewers interested in coming back..so no doubt there’s others we won’t be told about..at least i hope.

I agree – and they didn’t do a THING with Neville’s character (the former Bell hop who had a thing for Paul) and on New Year’s Eve, he threw Paul at Sonny and said something like “you two belong together” and they didn’t add any spice to it at all – they barely showed Sonny being jealous when Paul with be with the former bell hop (obviously I can’t remember the character’s name) who was supposed to be “now working” as an Administrative Assistant at the Hospital – and then, they do NOTHING with it – Okay, so I guess… Read more »

So much for Ken’s comment years ago that people who die would stay dead. I just had to laugh when I heard Will is back. I don’t care that this [Ken’s] statement isn’t true. Glad Will and Chandler are back.

Right now there is more bad than good on Days, but this is a step in the right direction.

Maybe Chandler Massey is NOT coming back to Salem / Days Of Our Lives as the character of Will Horton. Instead, maybe some sort of a Will look-a-like, a Will doppleganger, or a long-lost twin sibling of the character of Will Horton? You never really know….

ChandlerFan
Guest
ChandlerFan

Actually, I would be okay with any of those scenarios. Chandler is a versatile actor who could bring those characters to life, while having obvious fun doing so.

It might be more interesting if Chandler’s new character came to Salem knowing nothing about the town, nor the complex inter-relationships between the city’s residents. As the new character learned about Salem’s history, it would give new audience members an education in that folklore at the same time.

This shows that Ken Corday is absolutely talking out of his ass when it comes to Days of Our Lives. So far, two of the characters who died under his “once you’re dead, you’re dead” commentary have been brought back to the land of the living, so to speak. It just makes him look so foolish, and truly makes me believe he is the next person who is taken out of the picture, and I hope those as Sony Television and NBC begin to realize this, especially if we want a renewal in 2018. Now, onto my next issue: Ron… Read more »

Hi Scott

i’m hoping the difference between Lucas and Brad

and DAYS Will and Sonny

is that DAYS characters are definitely core characters of VETS. and the audience LOVED them to bits

as for GH Lucas and Brad… argh! I LOVE THEM… Brad is the only reason to watch Finn.

GH really needs to stop with the overkill of Sonny and Carly, Jason and Sam, and Finn and Hayden.

give your canvas some much needed attention and FEATURE the much better actors.

Chandler also should allow the producers, or at least his own agent, to write an actual SCRIPT for him to follow when accepting awards or giving “impromptu” answers to reporters’ questions. With a written script, he will nail it.

Perhaps all of the Days’ actors should do likewise, if the producers are going to be so sensitive to every extemporaneous syllable out of the actors’ mouths.

How is it possible that such accomplished actors can give riveting performances from a script, but then botch-up a simple off-the-cuff answer to a simple question due to the unintentional and un-thought-out implied repercussions?

Maybe he was thrown into the ocean and someone spotted him took him in an d took care of him ,Maybe Will had amnesia.

Breaking News

Melissa Reeves Has NOT Been Fired From Days of our Lives

A technical error caused a bit of a firestorm on Monday night, and a retraction early Tuesday morning when an item appeared most notably on TV Line’s partner’s feed, Yahoo News, that had a headline stating that Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) had been fired from Days of our Lives.

If site visitors and readers looked closely, there were actually two versions of the opening line that appeared.  One of which was noting that Reeves was apologizing for “catching heat” from co-stars and fans for backing a post by Candace Owens that was Anti-Black Lives Matter, and the other one that she was fired from the NBC soap opera.

TV Line early Monday morning issued this statement to clarify what happened and confirmed that Reeves had NOT been fired from DAYS: “Due to technical error, a story was briefly published on TVLine on Monday evening — and has since surfaced on several of our partner feeds, most notably Yahoo — that erroneously claims Days of Our Lives has fired Melissa Reeves. The story is false. Melissa Reeves has not been fired from Days of Our Lives. In the meantime, we apologize for the error.”

DAYS Wally Kurth Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Mark our words! Next year, Days of our Lives Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis) will once again be nominated for a Daytime Emmy for this week’s emotional and deeply-touching work on key episodes of the NBC daytime drama series.

As viewers saw, this was to be the happy nuptials of Justin and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), who found love again after losing the previous loves of their lives.  They were dear friends to begin with, who through a set of horrific circumstances, found comfort with one another which eventually turned to love.

Photo: JPi

Problem was; Justin overheard Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) before the ceremony discussing Steve’s (Stephen Nichols) feelings for Kayla and that he wants her back; something Kayla is unaware of.  So what will he do?  The noble thing and tell her the truth, or keep it to himself and marry her anyway?

As the Intel of what he learned weighed heavier and heavier on Justin, in the most dramatic of moments (when he was to say his “I do’s”), Justin stopped the ceremony and bared all to Kayla: that Steve wants her back and how Steve saw him propose to her and that is why he backed off.  Armed with the knowledge and that her friends and family kept it from her, Kayla does not know what to do.  Justin helps made it easy and clear for her when he questions her … if they would be standing here getting married, if Steve had told her his true feelings before Justin proposed to her?

Justin goes on to say to Kayla that maybe she has been avoiding her true feelings for Steve, because she did not want to hurt him.  Then Justin tells Kayla that he visited his late wife Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) grave, and told her that if things were different, and if she was alive they would still be married, and Kayla would be their dear, dear friend.

Photo: JPI

With seeing the look on Kayla’s eyes, Justin knows she loves Steve.  Heartbroken, but caught in an untenable situation, Justin tells Kayla he is happy for her.  Kayla wraps her arms around Justin as they both cry.  Kayla says she never wanted to hurt him, and when Wally as Justin says, “I know, honey,” it was one of the most honest and ten-hankie moments of the entire scenario.   Justin kisses her, tells the guests there will be no wedding today, and exits the Kiriakis mansion.

The emotional drama continues in the aftermath as Justin is at Kayla’s apartment boxing up all of his belongings and tears up recalling their nights together listening to jazz and cooking dinner.  Sonny (Freddie Smith) finds his dad, and tells him he did the noble thing and that time will heal all wounds, but after Sonny leaves, Justin breaks down a bit further before exiting Kayla’s for good.

And if that was not enough, Justin goes back to Adrienne’s gravesite to update her on the wedding that did not happen.   He talks to her that he understands Kayla and Steve’s deep and enduring love, which was just like theirs was.  Next, Justin thinks he is seeing Adrienne, when none other than Bonnie Lockhart (Judi Evans) reveals she is back in Salem – talk about kicking a guy when he is down!

Photo: JPI

Throughout this entire saga, moment to moment, Kurth delivered raw, genuine, adult emotions, in a very complex adult story and relationship.   In fact, the cast and crew thought so, too!  When Wally as Justin told Kayla that he can’t marry her and the speech that followed and his exit from the mansion that followed, all those on set applauded for him.  His work was that moving.   Wally was ably assisted throughout by the outstanding work of Mary Beth Evans in these scenes.

2020, while a difficult year for everyone thus far, has been a particular great year for Kurth on Days; as over the last six months he has really had a chance to shine in this story.  So for all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV gives the “Power Performance of the Week” kudos to Wally Kurth.

Did you love Wally’s performance this week on Days? Did you reach for the hankies? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Wally Kurth, Mary Beth Evans & Chandler Massey Take You Behind the Scenes of Kayla and Justin’s Wedding

On Wednesday’s heartbreaking episode of Days of our Lives, viewers saw just how the nuptials of Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Justin (Wally Kurth) eventually wound up!

Justin told Kayla that Steve (Stephen Nichols) still loves her, which put a halt to the proceedings and ended the romantic relationship between the two dear friends, who found love with one another following Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, and Kayla believing Steve did not want her back.

Now, The DOOL app has posted a rare behind the scenes view of the making of the wedding – with moments from the key scenes, rehearsals and interviews with the cast involved.

Chandler Massey (Will) weighs-in on Will’s debut as a wedding officiant and how that went south, while Mary Beth Evans and Wally Kurth shared why they loved this storyline so much.

Wally expresses how the last six months have been some of the best storylines of his soap career, while Mary Beth says that Justin and Kayla’s relationship was so adult and that in real life, both actors have known about people who fall in love with their dear friend, after losing their significant other whether it be by divorce, or death, or whatever the circumstance.

If you don’t already have the DOOL app on your mobile device to watch the segment, you can get more info to download here.

We will have more to say on the memorable performances at Michael Fairman TV later in the week.

So, what did you think of Kayla and Justin’s wedding and the fallout? Comment below.
