Cast member after cast member of Days of our Lives have been singing the praises of the upcoming storylines for the long running NBC soap’s upcoming 50th anniversary on November 8th.

The fan favorite returns and stories that the series is set to tell have been acknowledged by long time actors and newer additions from: Kristian Alfonso (Hope) to Jen Lilley (Theresa) to Peter Reckell (Bo), and more as really exciting and well-written.  Additionally,  many in the cast have been singing the praises of new head writers Dena Higley (although Higley has written for the show previously) and Josh Griffith.

Over the weekend, you can add Mary Beth Evans to the growing list of performers who are relating to the fans to wait till fall to see some unbelievable material on DAYS.

On her Instagram account, and posting pictures of her scripts, Evans related: “Another Saturday reading some of The BEST Days of our Lives scripts I have ever read…I laugh, I cry..you all will go as crazy as I am…I can’t even begin to tell you!!!!! Stay tuned!!! WOW! #joshgriffith&denahigleyROCK! #Days50th #nbc most importantly #daysfamily

What do you think about what Evans is saying?  Are you excited to see Patch and Kayla together again, since Stephen Nichols (Patch) will be back?    Do you think this fall DAYS will rock as the daytime drama to beat?  Comment below!

So, 5 months out, we’re being lobbied to stick with this plodding, miserable show because maybe, just maybe, things will be better in November for their 50th anniversary shows. Is it really worth it?

No, the new writers material along with the returns begins airing in August.

This Michael Fairman story is being misunderstood as implying that the new stuff begins in November. November is the 50th anniversary (and sweeps), but the celebration begins in AUGUST with the new writing!!!!!

Mark, thanks for the excellent advice! I know I’m not alone in my viewpoint. Maybe, as fans, we expect more from our shows than what we’re given. And there’s nothing wrong with that.

Mary Beth Evans… rocks! Have you seen her on The Bay (the Series)? I binge watched the show on the weekend, she’s fabulous and, I’m so happy DAYS has he on-contract. I believe her Twitter/Instagram, she’s knows what’s brilliant. It’s exciting times ahead for DAYS. It could be NBC’s send-off of the soap (next fall 2016), though I hope the rating bounce back up drastically. I’m so glad Mary Beth Evans, Judi Evans and Wally Kurth are on contract, along with the return of Thaoo. From the end of August to the end of this year, DAYS will finally be… Read more »

Well the cynic in me is thinking that the actors were told to hype up the stories to build buzz for the 50th, but the soap fan in me believes if these seasoned vets think the stories are good, they are going to be great. Again the cynic in me believes NBC and Sony are only now making an effort to capitalizes on the 50th, obviously someone loosen the purse strings in order to lure back so many previous stars– but after the hoopla of 50th is over, what is going to happen– are they preparing to go out with… Read more »

@Mary SF, I initially thought that, too. That the actors were told to do some PR for the show…. however, I like you, a devoted soap fan, believe Mary Beth Evan, especially. I find her comments to be very genuine. As for the longevity of the show… it’s future, it feels like the show may be wanting to set-up the show (in the last year on contract)… to end with a bang. This is good if that is the case, however, soap fans must watch and watch everyday… between now and next fall, and then… we hope the show will… Read more »

All the hoopla surrounding the shows 50th sounds great but why do all this just for the shows anniversary……to really WOW me lets wait and see if they can keep the party going past the November sweeps and beyond 2016……i mean will the show be as good as it sounds for the 50th and for months afterwards to bring the ratings up and stay up…..then there will be something to talk about! Dont mean to sound like a party pooper but big deal……GH brought back vets for its 50th and the few that remained arent even around that much, disapeared… Read more »

@ Jimh – I hear ya, man! In total agreement when your comments. I guess we know what to expect with Peter & Stephen’s returns… a few months? At least we know Thaoo is returning with a contract. I too, am concerned with the PLAN that DAYS has for next year. It’s great that soaps, GH included, bring back vets during these amazing 50th anniversary times, however, there must be a plan in place for DAYS to remain to stay strong in ratings, and secure more vets ON-CONTRACT. It would be BRILLIANT if Stephen Nichols would stay on, with a… Read more »

Steve and Kayla – The only couple that has the power to bring me back to Days. I Can’t WAIT!!! There are no other couples on daytime TV that have the chemistry that (Stefan) Steve and (Mary Beth) Kayla had. The last time they brought this couple together the writing for the two of them was horrible! I hope the writers do them justice this time. They deserve it. Classy all the way.

I’m worried that all these old characters coming back will mean some of the newer characters will be dropped or at least ignored for weeks if not months. I see budget and time constraints being the reasons. I remember reading that the show would have a larger budget for the 50th, but still the expense of the pay for the returnees has to be made up somewhere, so it makes sense to stop paying newer actors by dropping their characters. And then there aren’t enough hours to tell stories about all the characters.

Jeremy
Guest
Jeremy

Yes, and let’s not forget, there will also be new(ish) characters also in the mix, too. Claire (Belle & Sean D’s daughter) will be be aged. Theo, is being recasted, and Joey (Patch & Kayla’s son) will b aged, too. We’ll have them all in story, too.
There’s lot’s for the show to balance with them, and the return of Andre/Tony, Bo, Patch, Gabby, and the A. Martinez character, among all the present players. We won’t have Serena, Zander, and Melanie is off. I think a few more departures are definitely in the works, too.

Hi Patrick, I always love to read your write-ups. I too, love love love Kassie as Eve. She’s brilliant. I totally agree with you about Zander, Paul Telfer is such a gem! great actor. I love Paul, and would love to see more of Tori, too. However, I really enjoy Guy Wilson as Will. I think the role of Sonny will either be recast at some point, or Clyde will have Sonny killed. so, what are your thoughts on Hope & Aidan? I enjoy them. They need a deeper story. And, Jennifer needs something more to do than tend to… Read more »

Patrick, I had to reply here to your reply to Jeremy. Yes, I agree with you about killing Daniel, but not Jennifer. I do understand how some people may feel about the actress’ beliefs (possibly, her views have changed). I loved when Jennifer was with Jack (I still think they should bring him back) and I like her acting. The writing has not been favorable for her the last few years apart from some great Jennifer and Eve scenes (including when Jennifer walked in on JJ and Eve doing the deed) and when Jennifer witnessed Sami confront Abi about the… Read more »

I can’t believe that these actors are touting stuff from the new writers. Theyre just basically implying that the stuff airing now is not worth watching. Wow way to sell your own product. If I were Sony or nbc I’d put a muzzle on these idiot actors.

What I want to know is are the star returns temporary or permanent? I know Alison Sweeney is temporary. But what about Peter Reckell and Stephen Nichols? Very glad that the story for the 50th Anniversary will be great. But what about in the weeks and months that follow? That will be the real challenge!

In the meantime, I am happy that so many of the cast members are elated over what they are working on now. I just hope that elation continues.

It’s always nice to see Kayla on-screen. My favorite role of MBE’s was as Katherine on General Hospital-so feisty! A much different character than Kayla. I think the show has been a bit lackluster. It’s the Daniel or Theresa show it seems. Daniel is always the hero-brought into most of the storylines. Theresa, she’s just a mess! I’d like to know the backstory of why she turned out so nasty. Honestly, it’s tiresome-the same old lines and schemes. Eve-needs a lobotomy. JJ-tired of him thinking that Paige will forgive him. Time to move on! Jennifer-needs to stay out of her… Read more »

They need to sign Stephen Nichols to a contract pronto! Strong, charismatic actors of Stephen’s character have been sorley lacking on the show . I’m so hoping the story does justice to Patch and Kayla. No one brings magic the way Stephen and Mary Beth do together. The horrible writing and lack of storyline the last time Patch returned was disgraceful. Going to take a leap of faith and trust that this time around, they will be given material worthy of their talents and story history. #PatchandKaylaforever as Mary Beth often hashtags. 🙂

So many times, in the past year , an actor will be interviewed and say how amazing this or that is going to be, how we will LOVE what is coming up. Not implying Mary Beth is doing this. However, when it airs it is either really dull or I hate what they have done to a character or a story line . I now tend to not even watch interviews because they give false hope for a character or story line. SO disappointed in how the writer’s destroyed Will and Sonny. Their love and story was an amazingly wonderful… Read more »

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”

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.
