Austin and Carrie will be back in action on NBC’s Days of our Lives come 2017!  Fans of the series have already begun to see the new episodes from the latest co-head writing regime of Dena Higley and Ryan Quan play out, which from the looks of it means some fan favorite returns may be part of the order of the day.

Soap Opera Digest is now reporting that Christie Clark (Carrie) and Austin Peck (Austin) are set to reprise their roles in which Christie elaborated on still being part of the DAYS family now for 30 years! Clark, began playing Roman (Josh Taylor) and Anna’s (Leann Hunley) daughter, Carrie as a child in 1986, was last in Salem in 2012.  Peck has been back and forth on the series as well. His orginal run went from 1995-2002, and he last returned in 2005.  The role of Austin has also been played by Patrick Muldoon.

Now that DAYS fans already know that Leann Hunley is also coming back to DAYS, could Carrie and her mom finally share some on-screen moments?  What do you think will bring Carrie and Austin back in story?

Share your thoughts in the comment section below if you are excited to hear of the return of Salem supercouple, Austin and Carrie!

Im just hoping-but wont hold my breathe-that they have something interesting to do and it will be great to have Anna back…wish VI had played Peter Blake or another son of Stephano and Lee Dumonde instead of Deimos-he feels more like a D than a K…imho

Have never liked Austin Peck. Would prefer Patrick to play Austin.

I agree. Love Christie, Mo. But, not Austin. He looks sickly in the above picture….haunted eyes!!!!! DRACULA!!!!

Disagree, Peck is a MUCH better actor! Muldoon is boring and one note!

If the show is true to its recent history, I will enjoy them for the 6 months or so that they are on after their trumpeted return. Then they will be let go and the show will promote its exciting reboot while apologizing for its latest round of disappointing stories. Sorry, but the show has trained me not to care about stuff like this. I’ll pay attention when they bring on the Macdonald Carey hologram….

I agree…no matter who you bring back unexciting is simply unexciting. Don’t enjoy being negatives but for real…this is just another sock full of cement.. not a re”boot”.

Is this a storyline that has these characters staying with us? I am weary of this trend in daytime drama to bring in actors/characters (with great fanfare) for short term plots, then leave them languishing before they leave. The joy of daytime drama is the investment in places, stories, characters, histories, and have that sustained. Is that a lost art?

Patricia Nolan-Hall

Yes, it does appear to be a lost art. Very well said.

Thank Gawd!!! Austin Peck is returning as Austin Reed instead of Patrick Muldoon. Christie (Carrie) and Patrick (Austin) were a bore-fest during their last visit to Salem.

Phil

Agree!

Agree Peck is a much better Austin than Muldoon. Muldoon looked much too old to be Kate’s son.

I agree he look older this time around, but austin will always be pat muldoon.

Plus the writing was not up the par when pat muldoon played Austin last, his Austin in ways are different than peck Austin reed.

I stopped watching Days when they fired Carrie and Austin in 2012, so I guess I will be tuning in this winter for their return! I prefer Patrick, but I also like Peck, so it’s a win-win for me. Too bad this is just a limited run. I’ll just watch their episodes and then it’s back to not watching for me. Now, if they brought Carrie, Austin and Jack back full time, I would start watching again full time. Funny how that works!

its a great day to be a soap fan!!!
the amazing news continue… first pratt replaced with an original writer from y n r glory days sussam morina…. and now this!!!!
pls dont let carrie and austins return be short lived like past attempts!!!… carrie and austin are my fave days couple and they deserve a front burner story!… throw in lucas or rafe ( who had so much chem with carrie before) and maybe nicole as replacement for sami as the meddler and the new round of carrie and austin should be exciting!…
i love a heartbroken , crying carrie and i prefer peck to mulldoon!…
cant wait for their return… i ve been off days for a bit but carrie and austin always bring me back!!

“…DAYS fans already know that Leann Hunley is also coming back to DAYS, could Carrie and her mom finally share some on-screen moments? ”

YES… scream from the mountaintops… that’s me… YES

wallah…. “Rafe ” it’s time to dump Hope… Carrie is back !

not to diss Austin… IT”S going to be GREAT to see him back for the best, Kate.

Okay– lets hope they remember Carrie and Austin were expecting a child when they were last seen on scene– they haven’t mentioned it since– except I think at Will’s and Sonny’s wedding I seem to recall someone showing a picture of the kid to someone in a fleeting second while they explained why Carrie was not at the wedding, but I don’t recall it was a boy or girl of the kid’s name– of course this being a soap maybe the kid will be a teenager by now—Personally Carrie without Sami around seems rather dull- and Austin stopped being interesting eons ago– so I doubt they will be on very long– if the show is on its last legs, these returns might be a way to wrap up loose ends before the show is cancel– let’s hope not, but my gut is telling me something else.

Are you sitting down, Mary SF? There are rumors and speculation that Austin and Carrie’s child is a hermaphrodite! If the child has male and female genitalia the storyline possibilities are endless!!

Mary SF
Mary SF

What?? Sounds more like a James Reilly story- no wait the kid would be possessed if it was him writing— well if true it would certainly be a first on a daytime soap anyway

Patrick
Patrick

the thought occurred to me .. for storyline purpose.. that they make Rafe the father

tada! the end… Rafalicious is badaboom badaboom… all that

Mary SF

I don’t think Rafe and Carrie ever did the deed– so they would have to rewrite history– but I always thought Rafe made a better couple with Carrie than Hope- also if Abigail is coming back at some point – an Abigail, Chad and Austin triangle would be worth exploring–I liked it when Abby had a thing for Austin

This is fantastic news. I love Clark and Peck, and much prefer Peck’s portrayal of Austin than Patrick Muldoon’s. I’m really looking forward to having them back, and hopefully this points to a bright future for DAYS. Now all they have to do is get Brandon Beemer and Martha Madison back on contract, and find a better recast for Philip (even though John-Paul Lavoisier is doing a fine job IMO).

Patrick
Patrick

I’m going to miss Martha Madison… seriously

even SOD was taken with her work… said as much… she should be groomed to be a leading lady

as I’ve posted… I was still fresh off the firing of Daniel Cosgrove… as he was the resident legalese… and fresh young pup Belle got the job.

this newfound core family … took

I liked the moments.. what few their were… between Belle, Shawn D., and Claire

so… since Claire is remaining in Salem… I’d love to see MM’ back in Salem.

I’m #MissingMartha too, Patrick.

DAYS should focus on Marlena, Belle and Claire. And look who’s in the middle/center!

Patricia Nolan-Hall

Ditto on the Martha Madison love.

Keep them happy. Dont insert them into forced triangles and quadrangles that go nowhere. Let them be a leading couple!! I must say I am happy that Peck is returning. Muldoon’s last go ’round just did NOT work. He looked weird, he sounded weird, and acted weird. Even though he originated the role, Peck has played the part much longer and is the Austin that most fans relate to.

Please let the characters stay for at least a year this time, wait for them to be gently massaged into the canvas before getting rid of them. Give them the chance you never seem to give Jack, Belle, Shawn Brady and the latest Phillip who was fine, and only needed a haircut, not to be fired. They could get the next generation Marlena, John, and Roman started if they would give time to someone other than Deimos, but I’m liking this reboot so far, lots of old characters returning and tight writing and scenes with characters together that make sense, like Patch and Adrienne finally talking. If Y&R can pull itself from the brink they can set the standard for the rest. Sony is hopefully working on Days just as hard as they are on Y&R to get the soaps in the best shape possible, at their highest potential. It can be done. I wanted Carrie and Belle to fight in court as dueling lawyers, maybe we will see that while Madison is still there, hope they intersect, being family and all, sisters even?

Always enjoyed Christie Clark but never cared for Austin Peck’s take on Austin.

That said, he really developed as an actor when he portrayed Brad Snyder on ATWT so I’m interested to see what he does with the character this time.

As I told my friend and fellow DAYS fan, hell no. Carrie and Austin are a ship that sailed, ran aground, and sank long ago. But the person above who said their return would only wind up lasting about six months was spot on. LOL

Whatever. Just one thing, though: Austin Peck needs to SERIOUSLY RE-THINK that outfit!!!!! I mean…HALLOWEEN’S not here yet…LOL!!!!!

Just saying……….

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: John ‘Unmasks’ Kristen In Great, Soapy Cliffhanger

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, head writer Ron Carlivati and company served up a juicy, soapy, delicious reveal to the duped folks of Salem! The backdrop? Of course, … John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) surprise wedding anniversary party where at the same location a year ago all hell broke loose … as it has now a year later!

In story. after putting all the pieces together in a montage of flashbacks and moments, John Black is the guy (and Kristen’s ex) who figures that Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) is at the Jarlena party in disguise, but as who?  Through recalling … what “Nicole” said to him, what Abe (James Reynolds) mentioned to him – that since Nicole (Arianne Zucker) came back to Salem she’s been like another person – and Kate (Lauren Koslow) mentioning how Maggie swore she saw Kristen, not Nicole, when Maggie went off the wagon, but no one believed her, things were coming clear to John!

And that to the fact that Eli (Lamon Archey) received a call from Xander (Paul Telfer) who swears he has been working for Kristen DiMera, and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) reporting that bit of news to John, he is hit with the major revelation.  After touching speeches by John …and as Marlena delivers hers about the man she loves, the duo share a kiss, but then John stops “Nicole” and Brady (Eric Martsolf) from leaving the party!

What happens next is soap gold! John grabs “Nicole” and rips her hair and mask off.  Next, Kristen flips back her hair and reveals herself to the party-goers and it looks like it’s curtains for Kristen … as everyone is stunned by the bombshell and we fade to black.  The pick-up of this great cliffhanger was today (Friday), more on that later.

On the latest episode of the Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady Black) chats with host. Michael Fairman as Brady’s story hits a major turning point!  As DAYS fans know, Brady recently hit the sheets with “Nicole” who was Kristen in disguise.

During the podcast conversation, Eric explains how he has to sometimes suspend belief to make stories work in daytime which included Brady not figuring out that “Nicole” was Kristen, although it certainly re-ignited his thoughts of her!  Plus, he chimes in on the fun he has had working with his co-stars: Arianne Zucker (“Nicole”) and Stacy Haiduk (Kristen/Susan) in their many scenes

Later, Eric tries to remember all of the loves of Brady’s life that crashed and burned, and is posed the question, “What would he think if Days of our Lives SORAS’d Brady’s son, Tate, to an 18-year-old?

Courtesy/NBC

Then, the podcast goes behind the scenes for a dressing room segment where Galen Gering (Rafe) welcomes his on-screen sister, Camila Banus (Gabi).  The two banter about their on-screen and off-screen relationship as brother/sister and friends, and how much they value one another as they create the Hernandez sibling dynamic.

DAYS Promo: What’s Going To Happen At Jarlena’s Wedding Anniversary Shindig?

Coming up next week on Days of our Lives, prepare for drama, drama, and more drama! From the looks of the latest promo for the NBC soap opera, the action takes place at Marlena (Deidre Hall) and John’s (Drake Hogestyn) surprise one-year wedding anniversary soirée, where things could take a deadly turn!

But with the Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) masquerading as “Nicole” plot reaching new heights, Anna DiMera (Leann Hunley) and Tony DiMera (Thaao Penghlis) back in Salem, and the promo telling viewers “For one guest, the party, is over” followed by Sonny (Freddie Smith) yelling, “She’s got a gun!” and Brady’s (Eric Martsolf) ending line, “Oh, my God!” there is plenty to conjecture.

Also seen in the teaser is Kate (Lauren Koslow) trying to rip off the face of Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), and Stefan (Brandon Barash) and Gabi (Camila Banus) getting hot and heavy and Eric (Greg Vaughan) yelling, “No!”

So, check out the promo below and then let us know via the comment section below, what you think is about to go down at Jarlena’s party, where last August at their nuptials … things did not go off without a hitch, either!
