Last weekend in Hollywood (Sat. November 7th), Days of our Lives threw one fabulous shindig to celebrate and ring in their 50th anniversary at the legendary Hollywood Palladium.

Throughout this entire week, DAYS has been celebrating on-air with major dramatic episodes, and with their fans at the annual Day of DAYS event this weekend.  To mark the occasion of their once-in-a-lifetime celebration, where some of Salem’s finest and most notable past and present came together for one special night, the iconic series has posted a sizzle reel and inside look containing some of the hightlights from the night including soundbytes with: Deidre Hall, Drake Hogestyn, Kristian Alfonso, Chandler Massey, Joe Mascolo, Thaao Penghlis, Billy Flynn, Galen Gering, Arianne Zucker, Suzanne Rogers, Melissa Reeves, Eric Martsolf, James Reynolds, Ken Corday, Maree Cheatham, Melissa Reeves, Eileen Davidson, Alison Sweeney, Christie Clark, Kate Mansi, Patrick Muldoon and more.  Plus, a look at a few of the moments and performances inside the party featuring: Stephen Nichols, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes, Eric Martsolf, a celebratory toast led by Ken Corday, and much more.

While fans were in the bleachers watching the red carpet arrivals on DAYS biggest night, one of them enscapsulated the sentiments shared by many longtime viewers of what the series means to them.  And then to pay tribute to the longest running scripted series in NBC Television history, which has lasted an astounding 50 years, several cast members each gave a very special anniversary shout-out to their show.

Days is good right now and suspenseful but its a little too violent…..show needs some lighter moments and comic relief to help balance the show with so much gloom and doom in just about every episode! Too much depressing news in the real world as it is-i need my daily escape and im not finding it here! Still like the show and its the best right now!

Thank you for posting this. So glad Days reached 50 and to see all the actors saluting the show. They all seem to be in such great spirits. For the past few years (after my beloved GL and ATWT got cancelled), Days has been the soap for me.

AWESOME! this is what a daytime drama should be. Admittedly a little dark and violent, but so suspenseful and, from my study (am relatively new to DAYS since the cancellations of my favorites few years back), true to families and history. The genre is not dead. Never was.

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 . #❤️ #😘”

 

So, are you sad that Kristina will be gone for DAYS on-screen after today?  Share your thoughts om this, her final airdate, via the comment section below.
