“Chad visits some old friends in Phoenix”

So that obviously would be Will & Sonny. Which would be a good thing, of course. Aside from that, it sounds like it has the potential to be a return to the epic Days “adventure” storylines of the 80s & 90s.

Now whether ReRon is capable of writing such a thing…. well that’s a whole other question.

I don’t see any date announcement here. When is Peacock supposed to have this available? With a two week gap in Days episodes due to the Olympics, this would the best time to do it.

Could Chads visit to Phoenix really be bringing Steffano back ???

I guess reports of Days of our Lives demise have been greatly exaggerated. This series is ordered like two weeks after you can only see Days repeats on Peacock. Peacock must be seeing something in their numbers that is making them happy.

NBC and Peacock are likely testing out the waters of potentially moving the soap exclusively to streaming, which all networks should consider. Streaming is the proper platform for soaps in order for them to not only continue, but to evolve into something beyond the same recycled, safe stories they’re telling.

For all intents and puposes Days is on its way to being a internet only soap. i expect Peacock will eventually be a day ahead of the network in order to drive more viewers to the site. Also expect more current storylines and backstory of characters to appear on Peacock instead of regular tv. It will bleed viewers from NBC but as long as Days holds on to its small but devoted core audience Peacock wont care because its about pay tv in the long run. Its just one more sign the soaps of my childhood are gone and are… Read more »

Yep. I agree 100% with your observation. After the debut of Peacock suddenly Days is renewed for a longer period of time; TWO years. It doesn’t hurt that the full year stays up all year long now, no two weeks and gone, which was very smart on someone’s part.

Smart is Disney. They own General Hospital. If it goes to streaming it’s all profit for them. You have to wonder how much more successful Days and Peacock would be if NBC would actually promote the show a little.

Also lis the other, right now they have from September to September, the “season”. A smart move. I hope they post this upcoming season while leaving the previous. It’s fantastic watching at your own pace. People are loving it I assume or it wouldn’t have got a two year deal.

I certainly hope it’s free on Peacock.
I look forward to Lisa Rinna. If only Ben and Ciara would come across Hope in New Orleans. Wishful thinking.

This is great news for Days. I think the webisodes with Chad and Abby was very successful. Beyond Salem is taking that concept to the next level. Congratulations Days of our Lives.

I had a STROKE when I began to read: “Ben and Claire have a romantic getaway…” Then I had to recover in the ICU before I realized that it’s Ben and Ciara.

It would be awesome if NBC ordered a DAYS spinoff that focused on the ISA. It could be a procedural similar to NCIS, CSI & FBI, just more soapy and with higher drama. Lisa Rinna and Charles Shaughnessy could be the main stars, and it would provide so many opportunities for DAYS crossovers and characters who aren’t on the main show to still be in the universe.

I’m invested in the M-F show and characters, some I don’t see often because focus is often on this writing teams personal favs, I don’t care to see characters not on primary show. I will not pay for Peacock & when or if, Days moves to streaming if network show doesn’t improve I will be fine discontinuing. I enjoy GH on Hulu & YR on Paramount.

Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes OUT at ABC and ‘GMA3’

It’s not ending well for Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes. The former GMA3 co-hosts, who had their affair come to light publicly, have been let go by ABC after a lengthy mediation session on Thursday.

Now, the network has severed all ties with Robach and Holmes and they will receive payouts of their contracts.

According to TMZ: the long mediation session was “extremely contentious,” with ABC reps accusing both Amy and T.J. of various forms of misconduct, which one source characterized as “a witch hunt.”

They go on detail that Amy and T.J were told that they did not handle their romance appropriately by waiting too long to disclose it to ABC executives.

ABC expressed that their “behavior on set” was “uncomfortable” for some ABC staff.

Page Six is also reporting that their source shared from the talks, that unless ABC reaches a satisfactory departure agreement with both Amy and T.J., they would both be looking at filing lawsuits against the network.

In additional accusations, ABC said alcohol had been found in Robach’s dressing room.  However, that was disputed as ABC executives had gifted liquor bottles to Robach and other on-air ABC talent. Robach was also accused of showing up “drunk” to work after attending the College Football National Championship last year.  Amy claims she was just tired.

So, what do you think of Robach and Holmes being given the hook by ABC and being show the front door? Comment below.

Alec Baldwin to Face Involuntary Manslaughter Charges in ‘Rust’ Shooting of Halyna Hutchins

Charges were announced today by Santa Fe District Attorney, Mary Carmack-Altwies in the shooting on the set of the film, Rust fatally killing director Halyna Hutchins.

Alec Baldwin (ex-The Doctor and Knots Landing) has been charged with involuntary manslaughter along with the film’s armorer,  Hannah Gutierrez Reed.

The D.A. outlined why the deadly on-set shooting could result in criminal charges regardless of whether it was an accident.  In a statement, she shared: “After a thorough review of the evidence and the laws of the state of New Mexico, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the Rust film crew. On my watch, no one is above the law, and everyone deserves justice.

In charges set to be filed by the end of January, Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in Hutchins’ death.

Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas, said this about the charges: “This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set. He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”

Andrea Reeb, the special prosecutor for the case said: “If any one of these three people: Alec Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, or David Halls (assistant director, Rust) had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today. It’s that simple.  The evidence clearly shows a pattern of criminal disregard for safety on the ‘Rust’ film set. In New Mexico, there is no room for film sets that don’t take our state’s commitment to gun safety and public safety seriously.”

What do you think about the charges levied on Alec Baldwin? Comment below.
