Are we going to half to wait another decade for bo to come out of his coma before we can see him and hope reunite?

Dear Bo I am a loyal from the beginning fan please don’t leave forever… if you have to go, come to once again, and you and Hope decide to go off together to spend the many years missed. Then you can drop in once in awhile if needed. Grant an old woman’s wish please. Bring some happiness back to a once wonderful soap… we need it. I don’t have many years left. Puleez……

I’m with this lady! STAY! Days needs a lot of help!

U agree with you and hope you get the storyline you so deserve!

Amen!

Do not leave been watching since 1981 11 yrs old watching with my motherl love the show to this day don’t leave again was happy you were back peter such a awesome love story

Don’t do this to the fans. Bring him back to let him die again? That is so cruel. At least let him and Hope ride off into the sunset together.

Amen

You sound just like me I had internet put in when I found out that Days was going to Peacock!!! And I had always said I didn’t want internet BUT….. for Days I DID!!!!❤

Yes grant me that as well!

I say let the dead stay dead or don’t kill them off in the first place.

I have watched days since 1993 on nbc and
Now on peacock and was happy that you
Bought back Bo And Hope last week and
Hope there will be a happy ending for
Bo and Hope

I hope not

Myrtle it’s plain to see you’re not a Days Fan. All Days Fans know Hope and Bo makes the Show. I would like for them to stay. They have the most exciting story lines. Love that couple

Me too

If you don’t like the she why even comment?

He should of just stayed gone! Why come back and tease!

If you’re gonna kill Bo off again or keep him in a coma that’s cruel to the fans. They didn’t even share a kiss. We should cancel subscriptions if this happens. Maybe that’s why you brought him back..to gain subscriptions for those who didn’t subscribe when you went strictly Peacock and now you don’t care..

I wish they’d just send Bo and Hope back to Canada to live happily ever after.

It’s all Stupid

My thing is what upset me is that, this is the second time he comes back on days just to leave the show again. I really thought that both Hope and Bo was returning to the show for good. It’s a slap in the face to the people that’s been watching Bo and Hope’s storyline for decades. I don’t like it at all. It makes absolutely no sense. I’m very disappointed in Days

Yes got my hope up for him to leave again smh ‍♀️

Yes, I believe this is really stinks and I’ve been watching it for a long time. My mom started me with it. I don’t like this at all it’s like what’s the use of doing it with nothing comes of it not happy at all I haven’t don’t like it even more now than I did before us a story is not doing so well.

It is obvious this is what us loyal fans want especially for as long as we have been watching and now we paid to stream on peacock that is all I watch on peacock BTW maybe the writers will listen!

It sounds like it’s up to the writers.

No it’s not stupid. I want to understand why they brought Bo and Hope back just to rip them away from us. I mean come on now that really really really sucks!!!!! I’ve been watching this OMG since I was a kid because my mother and grandmother use to watch it but anyway that’s my feelings about this whole situation

I went I labor with my 2nd child eating cookies and watching bo and hope on the motorcycle wearing wedding dress. I quit watching a few years ado. I just turned back to watch Bo and Hope. When he leaves so do I. I’m like every one else why gives us a few days of something that so people enjoy. I would have rather to not go thur the losing him ago.

I just came back to just watch them too again.

You got that right!!! Agreed they have gotten absolutely ridiculous with these stupid storylines!!

Is stupid the way they have ruined the show so far fetched geting really sad

It’s just a daytime drama. If it’s stupid, don’t watch !

I agree

I started watching Days with my mom and grandma. Both have passed. I was still in elementary school, I graduated in 1976, and I’m about to turn 65 this summer. So for me it’s been about 56 yrs.I was excited to see Bo & Hope for a little while but It won’t last long. I will sure love it while I can.⏳⌛

Was April 28th the last show for Hope and Bo? Will we have to wait years for them to return? They need to reunite the right way!

Soap will be canceled before that will occur.

I certainly wouldn’t mind if the storyline between Bo and Hope continues on screen. Surely the writers could write a fantastic story for them so that fans can continue to enjoy seeing them together on screen like in the past.

The writers can only create stories for actors the show can afford and those that actors that want to be on it regularly.

Peter reckell what would bring u a Kristin back to days I love bo and hope. Still best part of Days

Yes they are. Days is not the same without them.

Please don’t end it with him in a coma that is just not right let them be together go off sailing the big seas if they must. Days is just not the same without them and Sammy and EJ and please bring back Abigail

I totally agree with Diana. Don’t end Bo and Hope with Bo in a coma. Give them a happily ever after. If you must, you can always destroy them later in fashioned soap opera style. And yes, bring back Abigail. You use Rolf for everything else, use him to bring back a great actress!

Yes,please bring back Abigail…there is no Chad without her.

I am fuming! I watched all of them today to see Bo left in a Coma!! I’m never watching again

I want to know why not stay on days , it was such a joy to see you and hope back on days, we have missed you both so very much, it broke every fans heart when they had you die the first time, never mind the second time putting you in a coma, please stay on days your like part of every fans family

We just want ‘Our’ Hero back. Can’t leave Bo in a coma. He and fancy face need a happy ever after. Cmon Days don’t let us down.

Days nds a good story line. This fits the bill. I’ve watched Bo n Hope since their first marriage, keep them on.

Yes, yes, yes they do need to keep Bo and Hope on for at least another year. Am I pushing it too far. We need some love in the afternoon like we use too. I have been a fan since 1967. Please, don’t let Bo die again! I can’t take it!!!!!!

Some people think the Bo and Hopes storyline is stupid but I say I’ve watched Days from the beginning they are a great love story and I for one would like to see more of them

I want Bo and Hope on the show all the time. I’m kinda upset they left it like this. I thought at least we would see him awake. Didn’t show much respect for the fans of Bo and Hope

It don’t matter to me anymore because I quit watching after all these years when they screwed up and you have to watch by streaming. This was only program I watched on television. So many of my friends quit watching also.

I wish to see more of Bo and Hope and their children. My favorite family.

I love it. I hope you can stay on. I like to watch Days of our lives since the beginning.

Will Bo and Hope be gone forever, or will they returned at some point like pop ins ? Will we see them from time to time ? Please say it’s possible, miss the duo,Big Big fan from Texas.

It has been very nice to see you came back to the show, even for a little while. We always want more. I have watched since Hope was a baby in the stroller when her mother was killed. Enjoy your life, know you will be missed. Feel free to be a regular on beyond salem.

Bummer all around. Soaps are about continuing characters but the quick in-and-out nature of these appearances that overall just have the characters tread water among silly contrivances does no service to loyal audiences. Let’s commit to a solid storyline and time to tell it. Actors, writers, everyone. I ture if musical chairs and lack of forward thinking, suspense, and excitement.

Hopefully bo will return with hope at some future date, so happy to see him back, remember his first time on days, watched since show started in 1965!

I have been a Days fan sense the first day it aired I was 10 years old and watched it with my Grandmother, Bo and Hope are my favorite couple on the show , I love the hole cast because some of them I feel like their my family to , I’ve cried at the deaths of a lot of my favorites leaving the show but when Bo died on the show it just broke my heart , if Days does anything please let Bo and Hope live a happily ever after that’s what all us fans want to happen, we love you Peter , may God bless you and your family always

I’m right there with you Jeannie! I’ve been watching since a young girl with my grandma. Days actors &
Actresses have been closer to me then my on family! I have loved Everything about Bo & Hope’s Love story! & I am definitely looking forward to what the future holds for them. Thank you Peter for giving this interview! It was so nice to hear your thoughts and for you to share your memories of working with all of the wonderful characters and talking about what it was like to film with all different actors of behind the Heart & Soul of Days ❤️

Bo needs to come back to full recovery, reunite with family, then go off with HOPE in his heart to a happy ending,somewhere out there. Hopefully knocking MEGAN off her broomstick in the process! Meanwhile can’t wait for Vivian to return. Also need more positive LBQT ️‍ pairings!Leo is a hoot, but not good role model.

I am 55 years old. Been watching since I was 8 years old. I have always roooted for Bo and Hope to stay together. I hope they let Bo wake up, they reunite, and leave together to live happily ever after.

The prisms were an important part of the storyline. Now that we are so many decades into the future, and the prisms are together in the storyline, and medicine has had advances, it would be satisfying to have more focus on them, so the newer generations of watchers would see the importance of them.

Bo should come out of coma and spend time with family before they kill him off again

Get well and get back. You and Hope are the perfect couple and you two make the program

PLEASE make Bo and Hope have a New Beginning for them and their family. Days has been without a Great ending for Bo and Hope. Its way overdue. Days Fan since show started. Sharon

Is this how it ends with hope waiting forever for her hero

I have watched Bo and Hope since I was a young girl . They were always magical together.Such a handsome couple too. I was so sad how they ended their storyline and always wanted them to make it right.They still have the magic when they are on together and I hope this time they get to leave together when they decide to go again. Their fans deserve it

I loved seeing Bo back on DOOL, he has been missed. It’s nice to have Peter drop in on occasion & I hope they find a way to keep that going.

I don’t care for the Bo being in a coma. He should wake up & they should ride off together on his motorcycle, he should be reunited with his kids too.

My question for Peter is:
What was it that made you leave DOOL & if they asked you to come back full time again, would you?

Hi, Peter, or Bo! This is a treat! I’ve been watching Hope and Bo since I was 10 or 12 years old with my passed on now grandma. I’m now 48. You’re part of the family! I had pretty much sworn off days when you “died” on Days of our lives and then to hear that you are back, I’m still here! my question is : please tell me you’re going to stay to the grand age of 90 on the show?! Out live everyone on the show! Love you! ❤️

I think they should have Bo and Hope renew their vows on the Fancy Face and sail away like they did forty years ago u less they are planning on staying in Salem

Hi Peter,
Thanks for being here, and coming back the Days along with Kristian; even if it’s not for an extended time, so happy to have you!
I just wanted to say that my husband and I never forgot how kind you were to me almost 30 years ago when you were in our hometown with Kristian for a meet and greet at a health expo. I was in a wheelchair and didn’t have access to the stage, and we got to meet you both privately. You were very kind about what put me in the wheelchair, and we could just tell you were/are an all around great guy. Our family never forgot your caring. Thanks for being the real deal! Although you are missed horribly on Days, and we will grasp at any amount of “Bo/Hope” time we can get, we’re so glad you have carved out a beautiful life for yourself and your family. God bless you all!

I would like for them to bring him out of the coma and than to go out on the boat or something

You have no idea how relaxing it is, to come home after a hard day, turn on the show, watch my favorite characters….but Bo and Hope….that’s the ultimate, and you just don’t know how healing it is, to have an escape for an hour. Please don’t leave entirely, if you can stay. God Bless.

Jason on GH

Don’t like the way it’s ending. It’s kind of like when Bo came back before he had his brain tumor two months worth of filming of nothing we cared about and he actually had two good days with Hope before he died. As much as I like the Bo and Hope couple, I would just as soon not see him. If this is all they’re going to give us. Not enough!! if the actors don’t want a full-time then at least let them get back together and sale of on the boat for a while then they can come and go as they please. This is just frustrating!
58 year watcher!!

I watched it since I was 10yrs old and, now I’m 63 never miss a day, I used to watch it with my mom after school.

I used to call home from school everyday when it came on so I can watch Bo and Hope they need to keep them on the show

I Love Bo and Hope .I was so happy to see them back .And then when Shawn Douglas shot him.I was like Nooooooooooooooooooi.I was holling at the T.V.Please let Bo and Hope get back together.They Deserve it.No We Deserve to see them together and Happy.And then If they want to go and sail around the world that’s fine as long as I know he’s still alive.I’m fine with that.

Bo and Hope for life❤️

What? It was just a short return? Why bother then?

Sad to see you both go again it’s going to be rough again

This whole storyline is stupid, the whole point was to reunite Bo and Hope, so what kind of reunion was or is that? And they don’t even make it back to Salem, so what was the point? What happened to all those back there who are also looking for him to return? This whole orchid storyline if you ask me was pretty depressing, and look how it ended.

On an unrelated topic,
When are the gonna acknowledge John Aniston (Victor kiriakis) actual death? Or are the currently looking for a new replacement for him?

Omg Bo I cryed when I saw you I love you and hope I named my middle daughter Hope I’m 74 and I’ve watched Days for all days my mom my grandmother my 2 daughters my close friend pleas take Hope with you if you leave or better yet stay love all you guys lots may God Bless you all Carolyn!

It sucks. We waited all this time for the Bo and Hope return. All to soon it’s over. We need a longer story line.

If Marlena can get possessed get brought back from the dead & possessed by the Devil, how many times now?!?! Surely Bo & Hope can have a happy ending! I’ve watched Days since Hope was in her baby carriage when Addie was struck by the car & killed!!! Please don’t end their love story this way.

Darlene
Mary I don’t believe it’s the writers it’s Bo. He doesn’t want the job full time anymore. And, I read Hope was upset that Days want to cut some of her air time to save money. She side no the rest is history. I’ve been a fan before Hope was born. Lol I have to say these new writers forget storylines and make the viewer feel disrespected. They need to look back in the archives to see good writing/ storyline and incorporate them into the modern.
Love you all
❤️

I thought Bo and Hope were on for good since peacock films so many months ahead and Bo and Hope wouldn’t have to be at the studio all the time. They would film when needed and then return to their home. That is what I read when they agreed to come back to the show. This storyline was terrible. We never even got to see the real Bo!! We saw Bo and Hope reunite at the cliff, he gets shot, dies, comes back to life, emergency surgery, and coma!! Hope passes out, wakes up to Bo in surgery,in waiting room doctor comes in to say he’s in a coma! The end!! Come on Days you can do better. Us fans are tired of being let down all the time!! Thanks for nothing!!

Will bo remain on the show for now on and never leave again? Days isn’t the same without the main cast that everyone loved for years and Bo & hope we’re everything. I’ve watch this show before Bo met hope. I hope he remains and does not leave again. ❤️

I am really disheartened to hear that Bo is once again leaving. I have been watching Days for almost 50 years and have loved the Bo and Hope storyline. For him to leave again is just wrong. If he comes out of this coma and they leave together that is one thing but to kill him off again is wrong. What was the point in bringing him back? Days needs to make this a happy ending if he is leaving.

I’ve been a days fan since it began in the 60’s. Watched everyone grow up, grow old and die off. It’s a family to me and the other viewers.
It was great seeing Bo and Hope again. I do hope they have their happy ever after in Victor’s childhood home in Greece. I miss John Aniston so much as I do everyone who leaves us.

The ratings have probably been higher recently with Bo and Hope on there several of these little storylines going on right now I have to admit arelittle boring… Well maybe Bo is leaving eventually but maybe hope will be staying cuz she’s probably going to end up with that Michael’s guy…. Hahaha it’s just a soap opera but I normally don’t watch it I only got interested because my 84 year old dad watches it every night at 11:00 haha

#Days of our Lives the show was originally tied around the Hortons. Then when the Brady family was brought into it and making everything surround the 2 families really made the show into what it {was} when it {was} great. The show has been lacking these families intertwining. With that said the last couple weeks of having #Bo Brady and #Hope Brady back made the show worth watching again. Hate to see it end..

I want them to have a happy ever after !

It sounds like to me that Peter Reckell is once again gonna be leaving the show. Is this true, is he gonna die again and never regaining consciousness. Or did I read into that the wrong way which would be great to have him back on the show for a long while and have Bo and Hope back together again. If he’s just gonna be dying off the show again then they should just make it a permanent ending bc it’s happening to all the time with people dying off the show and then suddenly they’re back alive again. So if they are gonna continue to repeat this over and over again I would say isn’t a good thing to continue doing.

Would like to see a happy ending for BO and FANCY FACE

Would like to see a happy ending for BO And Hope

I have always Dreamed of Bo and Hope being what kept this story Live like like the next Tom and Alice Horton, or Doug and Julie. We need that one iconic team that holds the family together.

I want You (Bo) and Hope too have a happy ending
