I’m so happy for Days of our Lives. They have their own online spin off series.

I can’t wait to see Bo and hope back in action again I’ve missed them so much. Can’t wait!!! I’m so excited!!!!

How did they manage to talk Peter Reckell into returning to DOOL? And will filming take place in New Zealand?

great news cannot wait to see how this goes

Great news! But wouldn’t this be the THIRD chapter? (1) Peacock diamond caper. (2) Christmas in Salem.

Peter Reckell never say never. He talked a lot of smack and now he’s back. My opinion and what i gleaned from things I read.

I had enough Hope and Bo years ago, many years ago. The man is almost 70 years old and these people act like they will be bringing back the still young and glamorous Hope and Bo from ALL those years ago.Are they living in la la land or what?

Bo & Hope?? How in Hell’s name is that going to happen? Did Dr Rolf find a cure for brain cancer, on top of his usual zombie serum??

Bo, of course, is NOT in Hell, so I have no involvement in returning him to Salem.

I just hope it’s not another dopey “alternate timeline” thing. That worked OK for a standalone Xmas episode, under the pretense of Will & Sonny writing a script. But that’s not the way to bring back a legendary “supercouple” and then say “oh yeah… by the way, none of this ever really happened” at the end of the week.

Also, while the Peacock spinoffs are supposedly self-contained, you really would be lost in some of the current Days storylines (particularly the whole Leo mess) if you didn’t see the first “Beyond Salem” series last year.

Hope we can get it in Canada

Days must really be doing well on Peacock and with its Peacock specials because its Network ratings are not stellar. Perhaps this explains why the devil storyline is still ongoing because at this point most network viewers are pulling out their hair, flipping the channel and wondering will it ever end? No offense to the super talented actors who play Bo and Hope or their iconic characters but I wish Days would concentrate on being a more traditional soap. The non devil related story lines – Leo, Craig, Nancy TR, Gwen, Eli, Lani and EJ are excellent and so real and engaging. Hopefully the Bo and Hope series is in a timeline before Bo died and does not involve yet another zombie resurrected character courtesy of Dr. Rolf and his secret serum.

PS: With Kathryn Hayes death, it reminds me how much I miss some of those old iconic actors. I hope Peacock or some streaming other service would consider making all star soap movie utilizing some of our well known soap stars from yester year like Kim Zimmer, Susan Lucci, Debbie Morgan and others. I bet they’d be surprised at how well it would do.

The other Lis
Well they just used Robert Newman from GL,on Y&R and look how well that went? I liked him but a lot of fans did not and there was unfortunately no chemestry between he and Amelia Heinle.

Tell me we get some good old fashioned Bo/Hope with Steve/Kayla involved storytelling. I’ve tuned out of this show because of how bad it has become on the ridiculous scale. It may help me overcome how ridiculous the story will be involving Bo’s return from yet another dead.

Best news of 2022 this far!

Over the moon with excitement about the return of Bo & Hope. Cannot wait to see them back in action again! Hoping it will lead to an appearance back in Salem!

how do I get to Peacock and will this also cost?

I was wondering why all of the stars were disappearing from Days..

Carol Ferrara
They have disappeared so they can force this devil crap down our throats. Some idiot thinks that’s more entertaining, such as taking an unborn or newly born baby from its mother, than for the birth to be the happy and long awaited occasion it was supposed to be.

Kimberlin Brown ‘Killed-Off’ as Sheila Carter on The Bold and the Beautiful in Shocking Twist

The Monday, February 26th episode of CBS daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful brought with it the apparent end to one of the all-time villains of soap opera.

In story, Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) was being stalked by Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) in the dark. Eventually, Steffy stabs Sheila in the heart with a knife and she apparently dies.

Speaking with TV Insider, Brown admitted that it is extremely hard to leave a now iconic role she made soap-famous since 1990 on first The Young and the Restless and then The Bold and the Beautiful.

Kimberlin expressed: “It’s a tough place for me to be in right now; I’m not going to lie about this. I guess if anyone were going to take Sheila down, I’m happy it’s Steffy. I just wish that no one was taking Sheila down.”  Three time Daytime Emmy-winner, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood expressed: “It’s bittersweet because I absolutely love working with Kimberlin; she is just the consummate professional.”


However, the stabbing is vindication for Steffy as Wood related, “This is her moment. How long has it taken Steffy to take her down and it’s finally happening, so it’s going to be a big shock.”

As to her B&B death scene and to her future plans, Brown revealed, “Laying there on that floor when the paramedics pronounce the time of death, my eyes were closed and you’re holding your breath so it doesn’t look like you’re breathing. It was just like, ‘Wow, OK, I guess we’ll have to see what might come next for me.’”


If this holds up and Sheila is “dead” dead, it will open up the story and trouble in the marriage of Finn (Tanner Novlan) and Steffy, because ultimately, Steffy killed her husband’s biological mother.

This is leading many to believe this move will bring Steffy back together with Liam (Scott Clifton) while Finn and Hope (Annika Noelle) draw closer. Is that part of the reason for Sheila’s death? Stay tuned.

David Gail, Former ‘Port Charles’ Star, Cause of Death Determined; Mother Speaks Out on Dangers of Pharmaceutical Addiction and Fentanyl Epidemic

David Gail, who played Dr. Joe Scanlon on Port Charles (1999-2000), and who also appeared on Beverly Hills 90210, cause of death has been revealed. The actor passed away on January 16th at the age of 58.

According to the toxicology report, Gail died of anoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, which is a brain injury caused by a a lack of blood flow, following resuscitation from cardio pulmonary arrest due to the drug intoxication. The report also revealed that drug intoxication with amphetamines, cocaine, ethanol and fentanyl, were also involved.

Gail’s mother, Mary Painter, spoke to Deadline on the findings and opened up to what led to David’s ultimate passing. Gail was found unresponsive by emergency personnel who attempted to save his life. Eventually, he was put on life support where he remained for several days till his death.

In her statement, Painter shared, “It breaks my heart to learn that my son died this way. David became reliant on medicine many years ago, after multiple surgeries on his hands and wrists. He lived in enough pain to prevent him from working for almost a decade, with relief only achieved through full disability, physical therapy and pain medicine.”

She then added, “He struggled to stop taking pharmaceuticals and did before turning toward a more Eastern pain management including acupuncture and natural medicines. I can only assume that his former opioid dependence played a part in self-medicating from uncontrolled sources.”

David’s mother expressed a very important social message for our time about addiction that she hopes other parents remain aware of: “David’s death shines a light on the countless innocent victims of pharmaceutical addiction and the fentanyl epidemic that has taken so many of our sons and daughters. Please keep David and others battling pain or dependence, in your thoughts and prayers.”

Gail’s other TV credits included parts on: Savannah, Matlock, Murder, She Wrote, Doogie Howser, M.D., and Perfect Opposites.
