One of the true champions of Days of our Lives upcoming 50th anniversary is series icon Kristian Alfonso, who for decades has played the heroic Hope Williams Brady!  Alfonso, in numerous conversations with On-Air On-Soaps, has touted just how exciting and how gripping the upcoming stories that fans will begin to see roll out on their televisions and computers this fall will be.

Now the beautiful star has posted an incredibly star-studded Instagram pic from the make-up room at the NBC soap opera featuring returning favorites: Jason Cook (Shawn-Douglas), Thaao Penghlis (Tony), and Stephen Nichols (Patch) in their first group photo (that we know of) along with cast members: Galen Gering (Rafe), Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie), Rob Scott Wilson (Ben), Daniel Cosgrove (Aiden), Greg Vaughan (Eric), Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) and Mary Beth Evans (Kayla).

Alfonso, who has been posting pics to add to the upcoming excitement coming this fall, noted this pic posted late Thursday with the message, “Thought I’d share another, Yup we love being apart @nbcdays )) We’re all smiling, laughing and having a ball !;)))#days50 , #Grateful everyday”

Rory SO needs a spin off called Daze of Our Lives!!!!!!! There’s your target demographic NBC!!!

Rory is such a fascinating character, as is Bev. Alison Paige plays Bev on DAYS, and she’s fantastic.

I wish GH would secure this talented actress, and have Alison take over the role of Kiki Jerome. Kiki must be recasted ASAP! Alison Paige would be perfect for the role.

This picture illustrates the excitement and electricity in the air at DOOL. The cast evidently has a fondness for one another.

Seeing Galen Gering makes me beseech the writers: please include storyline for Rafe. Please give him something to do already!

All in good time. Gabby will return, and it’s rumored that the A. Martinez character will be Rafe & Gabby’s father. Perhaps, there’s truth to that rumor. Otherwise, there always seems to be this hotness and chemistry that remains between Rafe & Kate!

If that’s the Days we’ll get to see after August, I’m finally done with this show!!! Not interested in the “big stars” from the 80s and I don’t know anyone in the key demos who is. There are enough vets on the show that just have to be used the right way, we don’t need any more of them. I’ve been watching since 2010 for Will and Sonny, and now Paul and Sonny. The new writers have no clue what younger viewers want to see, so they’re throwing the most successful storyline under the bus. Incredible ignorance!!

What exactly do younger viewers want to see? How are they throwing the Sonny/Will/Paul storyline under the bus? It’s front and center. What more do you want? The younger viewers are not the only demographics that soaps need to please. I am a longtime viewer of DAYS (since episode one) and I AM a KEY DEMO regardless of what you believe! You are already talking about bailing on the show if in your words DAYS brings back the big stars of the 80’s. First, do you even know who the big stars on DAYS were in the 80’s? Evidently you… Read more »

This is an anniversary year, of course they are going to revisit the past and the rich history of the show- that is what anniversary years are about. I seriously doubt that means they are going to dump all their present day characters and stories. There should be room for the new and old on this year to celebrate all things DAYS.

Its just all in celebration of the shows 50th…like a family reunion!…its not like the show is dropping the Will/Sonny/Paul characters and replacing them with former stars…most are making guests appearances…Days isnt abandoning the storyline but Freddie Smith is leaving his role as Sonny so they either will take it in a different direction or recast Sonny…the Will/Sonny/Paul triangle is a good storyline but it isnt the only one…Days isnt just about those three characters…its about multiple characters of different generations…if you just want youth the Disney and Nick channels is the best place to tune in!!! Just a friendly… Read more »

You just threw everyone pictured under the bus. Then you ran over them and the viewers of the 80’s.

There is plenty room for everyone. This is just a picture of performers on that particular work day.

2010??? The show started in 1965…50 years of viewers passing the show down to viewers..You started watching FIVE…FIVE…FIVE years ago. How on earth do you know what viewers want to see?? Though this may come as a surprise..not all young viewers want to see that relationship played out..luckily they let it play out and didn’t listen to people like you…you like that story and want to see more of them..more what?? What more stories like that?? Think before you type.

So happy to finally see Days doing what they did best, utilize all cast members. Glad to see Patch, Tony/Andre, Shawn all coming back. Those were the Days of great story lines not focused on one demographic but all. Condos to the new writers if this is the way they are heading. Also Rafe needs a story line. The old writers buried him and now it is his turn to shine once again.

Where is Bo Brady? They need him in all of this – I like that DAYS is going back to the 80’s cast, back then it was awesome. They need the original Roman Brady played by Wayne Northrop as well as LeAnn Hunley who played Anna DiMera, she was awesome on the show.

Days Of Our Lives

Mike Manning On His DAYS Departure: “Thank You to NBC, to Everyone Involved, and Most of All to the Fans That Were Along for the Ride With This Crazy Character.”

Now it’s the end of the line for Charlie on Days of our Lives, his portrayer Mike Manning took to his Instagram for some parting words of his time in Salem playing this very bad dude.

As Days fans know, many people wanted Charlie dead, and now he is! Thus begins a good old fashioned soap murder mystery on the long-running NBC soap opera, the question now is, who ultimately did the deed?

Photo: JPI

After getting a copy of the latest Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, which features, “Who Killed Charlie?” on the cover, Manning shared in a post on Friday: Everybody has a motive to want this guy dead.” 😂 Not exactly how I pictured my first soap magazine cover, but at least we’re having a good time with it. It’s been fun Salem. I’ll love you all forever. ✌🏼💙. Thank you to NBC, to everyone involved, and most of all to the fans that were along for the ride w/ this crazy character. You’re amazing. I’ll always be grateful for you.  Excited to share what’s next as soon as I can.   Arrivederci. -Charlie/Mike”

So place your bets on who will turn out to be the murderer via the comment section below and let us know what you thoughts on Mike’s run on DAYS!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as we know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
