There has been a big buzz on Twitter within the last 24 hours that former fan favorite and Daytime Emmy winner, Darin Brooks (Ex-Max) may actually be considering coming back to reprise his role on Days of our Lives!

Darin took to his Twitter account and posted a very simple, yet juicy, and cryptic message stating, “To DAYS or not to DAYS…that is the question… ;)”

DAYS fans know that Max was Caroline and Shawn Brady’s adopted son, and when Rachel Melvin (Ex-Chelsea) and Darin both decided to leave the series, the character of Max went to London to be with his gal.  More recently, Brooks starred in Spike TV’s comedy series Blue Mountain State.

So soapers, would you like to see Darin back on DAYS?  And if so, who should he be romantically paired with?

Will he be integral? Will his character matter? There seems to be a revolving door at the Salem boundary… in for a bit, the out quickly… I came to DAYS only after my AMC, ATWT and OLTL fell to cancellation and dang if I am having the hardest time finding my way in that soap town. I do like that Chandler Massey and his Will-and-Sonny storyline. Well done, although I could do without the Gabi pregnancy twist.

I agree. Bringing him back for the sake of bringing him back is meaningless. There are more than enough recurring characters to write story for as it is.

I would love to see Max return!!! I really loved his spunk and charm!

I came back to Days because Matt, Patrick, Christie, Dee & Drake returned. I didn’t come back for the actors I didn’t during my eight year hiatus from the show. I’m already bored so if DAYS continues to bring back people during that period and ignore actors I LIKE – uh,hum Kristian Alfonso has Zero storyline – then I just walk away again. Days needs serious improving …

I am pretty sure Hope is supposed to be getting more story soon (no idea what but I’ll wait to see). Also I love that Marlene, John, and Kristen are front and center again!

Ces

By “story” I hope that means she’s the main character and not wandering around Town Square dispensing advice. K.Alfonso is one of the reasons I still watch.
I do like the Kristen/John/Brady/Marlena stuff.

It’s the rest of the show that is bothering me. The continuity, and the poor storytelling. Love Will & Sonny but this pregnancy storyline is already bothering me since Will should stand up to Nick. By having Will tell Sonny and Adrienne finding out? A lot more exciting than what it is now.
Jennifer and Daniel are extremely boring!!! How I miss Matt Ashford!
So many of these characters just wander around yet they own big companies and never there (John, Brady, Sami)
I could go on and on … thank god I have GH!

NOPE .. .Just concentrate on better writing and you will get viewers.. DAYS wants viewer so bad that they bring back old actors and they get spike in ratings but we disappear due to BAD and BORING storylines.

The storylines recently have been AMAZING. The only BAD and BORING storyline is Gabi’s pregnancy. You must be watching another series I am not.

Ratings say it all!!!!! Glad you are enjoying it! Just not for everyone… Enjoy!

Ratings also show that GH is good, and truthfully, it’s horrible. LOL. Once again, no clue what show you’re watching because DAYS has been AMAZING!

Scottie.. your a little crazy but funny!! Enjoy Days!

Absolutely!! They tricked everyone by bringing favorites back (MATT A.) and then pulled the plug on them as soon as they got a few viewers.

Good storytelling always wins out in the end!

I think he would bring in the younger audience.

I never watched Days of our Lives when Darin was on the series. But I think bringing his character back into the fold to create a new dynamic for a lot of the teen demographic in Salem. And if Chelsea returned to town, which I do not want, they should recast the role! I’d love to see a reunion with Abigail, as I feel as if Darin and Kate Mansi would have amazing chemistry together!

Dmitri

He should be with Abby. The ratings will rise if he returns, fans love him.

Only if Max really fled to London because he’s gay, and he comes back to make a play for Will. Otherwise- yawn, bore, no thanks.

Tsuds

Now that would be good!

But isn’t he Will’s relative?

Maybe he could come back for an episode and then go hang out with Bo and never be seen…Would cut down on the Budget ….

I see no reason to bring him back although I do love Darin Brooks.

Ces

Nope, we don’t need him back. We don’t need more younger actors on the show. We need established ones to get storylines.

Yes, come back Max. I like Max and Jennifer together.

Love Max Brady!!! Love Max & Abigail!!! Max Brady is the love of Abby’s life and it would be great to see him return back to the show! MABBY was awesome and so cute! And Darin Brooks is such a good actor! Darin would be great with Kate Mansi, just as he was with Ashley Benson (original Abby, whose now on Pretty Little Liars). Darin & Kate Mansi (Abby) would be great on-screen together, they would have some great and appropriate chemistry and is the right age for each other, it would be great watching the two of them bring MABBY back to Salem and watching their story and love grow and unfold! He could do both shows, DAYS and B & B. Eileen Davidson did both DAYS and Y & R. Darin could do both as well! B & B is only a thirty minute show, he could do both, and he’s a good enough actor that can do and handle both. He’s very talented and brought a lot of emotion and passion to the Max Brady character. Would love to see him & Kate Mansi together as MABBY!! And get a re-cast of Chad and have the MABBY and CHABBY stories going on. That would be much better for the young character of Abigail. LOVE MAX & ABBY!!! Really hope DAYS does continues approaching Darin and trying to work something out schedule or timing wise with him and bring him back and allow him to do both. Think on B & B he’s just there to stir up some drama for Hope & Liam and get Liam to thinking twice about taking Hope for granted, and having his character give that edge and drama to them and pushing Liam to know exactly who and what he wants and who he really wants to fight for and be with Hope or Steffie. But on DAYS Darin, would have his own story and center focus with his character Max Brady, and coming back to Salem for Abby. It would be all about him and her, and not just being some piece in a story to stir up something for another couple and their focus, it would really be all about him, and would be a big deal having him, a DAYS Emmy winner for his character of Max Brady, coming back and knowing how big MABBY was when he was on the show, it would be a big deal having him back, there a lots of fans that miss MABBY and want MABBY and that miss him. His character of Max Brady still had an edge to him as well, he was a decorated race car driver, loved fast cars and edgy things, Max was a good guy and loved his family, but also had an edge about him as well. Its so time for Darin to return to DAYS! Really hope that he will be. DAYS should definitely contact him again and try to work something out with him,… Read more »

During the event, Soap Opera Digest’s Stephanie Sloane, led viewers through a hilarious opening segment, which featured a walk through the sets with various cast members doing some very familiar soap tropes from: shirtless hunks, to bitch-slaps, a twist on a soapy monologue, and more.

Later, following John and Marlena’s nuptials on-air, Deidre Hall and Drake Hogestyn along with Mary Beth Evans, James Reynolds, and host for the segment, Martha Madison, chatted about the long-awaited wedding for Jarlena fans.

Then, DAYS executive producer, Ken Corday presided over the annual cake-cutting ceremony, honoring the cast and the crew for their accomplishments of keeping the show strong and continuing its legacy for 53 years and counting.

Several cast members took part in a special tribute honoring the late Peggy McCay (Caroline Brady), which was an emotional high point of the event. Eric Martsolf led several key members of the cast who worked with Peggy, as they shared remembrances of this one-of-a-kind actress.   Later, Galen Gering, Lauren Koslow, Nadia Bjorlin and Eric Martsolf did a little “Show and Tell” preview of some of their videos inside the new DOOL app.

Martha Madison returned to the backstage celebration where cast and crew took photos against the step and repeat for the series 53rd anniversary and the launch of the DOOL app.  Madison chatted with several cast and producers who stopped by including returning fan favorite, Matt Ashford (Jack Deveraux).

The facebook live event concluded when Stephanie Sloane walked into the celebration with the cast as they gave a big “Thank you” to the fans for keeping the show on the air, and telling them to check out the new DOOL app for all the exclusive, fun content now and in the days and months ahead.
