Days Of Our Lives

Daniel Cosgrove Making A Return To Days of our Lives!

Courtesy/NBC

Days of our Lives fans who were wishing for a return of Daniel Cosgrove to the show may have gotten their wish, but for how long, and as who?

Soap fans first reported hearing the news  of the actor’s return via a TV commercial that aired this week for the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest.

Then within the issue (on newsstands now) they reveal that the actor who played the character of Aiden Jenning,  and who is presumed dead after his confrontation with Bo (Peter Reckell), is back at the DAYS set filming and will first air in late spring.  But the questions remain:  Is Daniel back as the ghost of Aiden?  Will he appear in some newly-minted flashbacks?  Could this all be the handy work of Andre DiMera (Thaao Penghlis) and there is a Aiden doppelganger on the loose?

Is fan favorite Cosgrove back in a newly created role?  There are so many theories and not to spoil it since DAYS taped months ahead they are keeping tight-lipped for now.

So, what do you think about the news that Daniel is back filming at DAYS? Do you think its just a short “ghostly” visit to scare the hell out of Hope (Kristian Alfonso)? Do you think Aiden never truly died?  Could Daniel be filming a new role?  Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below!

Ugh why DOOL?? Why??? Out of all the actors and characters that you could bring back why waste time and space??? Why isn’t Eve and Will still on the canvas???? How much more can this fan take???

when DAYS is renewed…

they could bring back Kimberly and Shane Donovan

along with Will and Eve… I agree

Whew ! LOL

I was waiting for this thread!

I was at the grocery store…. and lo and behold… !!!! brain teaser mind blown stunner

this has to be for the long term…. duration of ALL that’s GOOD in Salem

He’s the quintessential – ideal – dreamy leading man

Good! Now bring back Kassie DePaiva since it is her who needs to be on FT!

I’ll have a seat at this table, couldn’t agree more. Love them both and miss Eve so much!

I miss Kassie more than I can say. I can do without Cosgrove. And, it isn’t because of the Aiden character; I just never liked him.
On another note. What is happening???? Kate and Deimos? Oh, my!!! I hope so. They will sizzle together.
Something else I need to say, Anne…and you’re my victim…LOL. Forgive me, my friend. You know how Abby is wary and Leary about moving into the DiMera mansion? Well, it may be that TPTB are insinuating Chad as ‘HEAD’ of the lair for a reason. Chad will be the new Stefano. Like father like son?

Honestly, I don’t care who Daniel Cosgrove plays, as long as they keep him around this time. He’s a great actor and brought real layers and complexity to the role of Aiden. He and Hope were awesome together, and I hated how the writers completely turned his character around and made him a scapegoat and attempted murderer.

If he’s a new character, here’s hoping he’ll play Peter Blake, Frankie Brady or Andrew Donovan.

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

“…He’s a great actor and brought real layers and complexity”

he does his acting with such a natural ease… and I love his take on belonging fitting in and moving in and around Salem

WOAH ! I hope he’s Peter Blake…. hummm??? this is the Andre connection? he’s a DiMera

loving this

when he’s romancing – he’s ON

when he gets riled ! he nailed IT

the connection with Chase… is going to be GOOD

WOW they have to make him Peter Blake

OMG him as Peter Blake would be awesome!!!!

Peter Blake, okay. But he’s about 20 years too old to play Andrew Donovan.

Guest

I agree. I can’t believe they let him go. He is an awesome actor, good-looking and I loved Hope with him. I love Rafe and think Rafe and Hope have chemistry, but they are friends not lovers. I want him to protect her but step away as wanting her. He has no kids, he should be with a woman that can give him a kids. I want him to be AIDEN, not Peter, not anyone but himself. I want the man that died to be an imposter.

for all the good news… and it’s revelatory still… DAYS continues to remain right up their with the 4 serial until Kassie DePaiva WINS that best leading actress in a drama serial ON THE LATEST ISSUE of Soap Opera Digest picture of : Kristian Alfonso – Daniel Cosgrove – Kassie DePaiva the byline under Kassie DePaiva : hopefully i’m recalling this correctly… but it’s close “I was schocked… I Cried ” her exclamation at being fired what gall and disrespect to the best of the best .

Aidens twin Caiden…real Aiden couldn’t kill Hope so Andre used mind control on Caiden to make him think he is Aiden and had him attempt to kill hope while Aiden was kept a prisoner but now Andre is using mind control on Aiden who thinks he is Caiden to make ghostly visits as Aiden to torment Hope but soon Aiden as Caiden will remember he is really Aiden but is caught by Rafe…Aiden tries to convince Rafe it was Caiden who pretended to be Aiden who attempted to kill Hope under Andres mind control and then Andre used Aiden as… Read more »

I’d love to see him back but I don’t think we’ll get that lucky. I bet it’s for a few dreams, maybe for Chase, or some flashbacks when it’s explained why he did what he did.

I like Danial C. Hope he is the Aiden twin. the son could use some family. Right now he is in trouble. Not law trouble but feeling terrible. He needs some family. Of course Andre will be doing something. to get Hope.. I would rather Hope be with Danial C than Rafe. I like Rafe fine , but just not with Hope.The show is awful right now. Wash rinse and repoeart. patch made to screw that pig. At least kayla has been saved but we know Sammi the second. no thanks. I never liked EJ for this before , and… Read more »

This is great news. Daniel Cosgrove is a terrific actor who did a wonderful job with all the layers of Aiden. I was so disappointed that Aiden was killed. How I wish TPTB would find a new part for Daniel and bring him and the fantastic Kassie DePaiva back full time.

JANET

I agree they are both good actors, and we don’t need more teens.

I love this news! I just hope it is not in the form of a ghost and permanent. I hope he is not paired with KA as she will be forever cursed by Bope fans. They will never accept her with anyone but Bo even though PR made it clear he does not want to come back. Give DC a new younger love interest. Rope can continue on with their 3 fans. Lol

They have more than 3 fans, trust that. But I don’t want them together even though i like them both.

Days needs to do something to excite the show. Don’t know if this is it, but we’ll see. So tired of the boring teen stories. These teens ARE NOT Shawn, Belle, Philip, Chloe, Mimi–the actors who played these characters could actually act. This new crew is horrible–nuCiara especially. She ruins every scene she’s in. I know that’s harsh, but I am just so tired of her and having her on the show. RECAST STAT!

I think that little prissy daughter of Belle and Shawn is annoying! I can put up with Ciara because she has always been sort of strange to me. LOL!
I like Chase and Theo the most.

I also don’t like Lani–Sal can’t act. And the Salem PD is about as bad as Genoa City’s.

Bringing back characters, or at least actors, when we were told it wouldn’t be happening…. gives me hope that the death of Will Horton will be reversed, and that he will be coming back with either Guy Wilson or someone new.

I have said myself Will isnt dead…he survived the attack but is in a coma and in a care facility outside of Salem.

Well if Aiden, Will, Serena, Paige, Bo and Daniel all end up alive on some island of Stefano’s that be fine by me. I also would like Stefano to be alive too– he can meet his maker in some way later, it just never sat right with me that Hope murdered him even under distress. Personally I always thought Stefano who cheated death a million times over the years should die in some simple way, like choking on a grape — to me that would have been poetic justice for the Phoenix– done in by a piece of fruit.

Maybe it’s either to play Aiden’s evil Twin brother (that no one ever knew about) or it’s just to do some nightmare dream sequence – who knows – it’s all speculation on our parts I suppose. At any rate, he is a good actor, have liked him since his days on All My Children so if he returns it’s a-ok with me.
Will be interesting to see what develops.

For months I would only tune into “Days” to hear Mac Carey and hopefully see a scene with Daniel Cosgrove or James Read. This is very good news and I hope it is a long term role.

On a random side note here, Victor’s brother shows up claiming something about Victor’s fiancee and 30 years ago. In REAL soap time, Victor K showed up on the Salem canvas 31 years ago, in 1985. So there’s that. Second, the son of Victor K, Phillip, was rapidly aged, and graduated high school in 2002, which was 14 years ago, which would logistically make the character of Phillip 32. However, with the rapid aging of Claire, Phillip is closer to 40 now. So…..at what point 30 years ago did this mystical fiancee of Victor’s exist? 30 years ago, Victor would… Read more »

it may not have been 30 years to the date… when Deimos was let out

I figure he’s been out for some time

and he could have still somehow fathered Xander. !!!!

this is what I want most of all

a ready made family to complete the takeover… of the Kiriakis… and JPL’ Phillip takes the fall

Deimos reigns supreme

Just as the chemistry between Hope and Aiden was blossoming they killed him off. That was too bad, but I thought may be they did it to bring Bo back, but then they killed him off. Perhaps, they wanted to bring Hope and Rafe together to tighten up and tie together some lead actors/characters. I think Rafe and Hope may be fine and even good together- I can even see them together in the sense that they are both on the police force, etc., but I was disappointed how they dealt with Aiden as I said just when the chemistry… Read more »

Sorry, but Days was great in the Fall. The writers have gotten awful this winter and adding so many characters spells the same old same old with Days decline, ruining long standing loved characters to prop up a bunch of unknowns.

Right now I find this Jan – Feb on Days its worst in 6 months.

What happened? Where is Corday’s promise of a return to caring about the characters and integrity? What happened to all that talk of great writing.

This Jan, this Feb so far is really bad writing.

cassie

The worst to me, all of the deaths and funerals. I need a mellow days for at least a month to get the killings out of my head.
When the teens showed up it took a nose dive. They messed up and need to start all over again.
These teens are not doing a good job together. No chemistry like Phil, Belle, Shawn, Mimi and Brady.
Definitely no chemistry like Nick, Will, Gabi, Sonny, Chad and Abigail. They had the ratings high when they were together.

…… And THIS is why I quit Days again. I knew I’d only last a short while @ Bo’s death. The show is horrible. Hate the recasts, teen stories and everything else. Not even Stephen & MaryBeth can keep me watching anymore. I quit for 7 years and I’m quitting again.

Excuse me, but didn’t Ken Corday practically guarantee that anyone killed from the point of the 50th anniversary on would remain dead? In my mind NOTHING has been worse for soaps than the trend of killing off characters and then bringing them back. Just, lame.

BUT, maybe Hope will simply be hallucinating. At least that wouldn’t be as bad. (And I totally appreciated Haiden, JUST cannot stand the idea of the back from the dead when the character was killed onscreen!)

I thought it was said once an actor was dead, they were going to not bring them back. So what’s up with this, I don’t get it.

I am glad to hear this news.I think Daniel Cosgrove is a great actor.I really liked Aiden and Hope together until they had him turn into a nutcase.I was really hoping for a longterm relationship between Aiden and Hope.It is going to be interesting to see what happens when Daniel Cosgrove returns… who will his character be?

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
