Days of our Lives Celebrates 57th Anniversary

Like sands through the hourglass, the beloved Days of our Lives continues on, and today on November 8th, the series turns 57-years-old.

DAYS began its run on NBC back on November 8th, 1965, and up until September of 2022, aired on network television.  Now, in the streaming era, the citizens of Salem have found a new exclusive home on Peacock.

MacDonald Carey and Frances Reid will always be revered as the patriarch and matriarch of the show, Tom and Alice Horton, but throughout the years, many enduring fan favorite couples and performers have been part of the fabric of this iconic show.

Tuesday’s 57th anniversary episode of DAYS, harkened back to one of its original storylines when Julie (originally played by Charla Doherty when the show premiered, and later from 1968 till today by Susan Seaforth Hayes) was arrested for shoplifting!

Now 57 years later, Julie is accused again while shopping with Doug (Bill Hayes)! Shawn Douglas (Brandon Beemer) arrives on the scene and it appears as if Julie took a fake mink stole.

After the incident gets straightened out, Julie says she can’t believe anyone would think she would steal. However, Doug reminds Julie when she was a teenager and how she took a real mink stole.  The episode contained flashbacks with Tom and Alice, and their son, Mickey (John Clarke).  Julie says the last time she was accused of shoplifting was 57 years ago today … a very clever nod to the big 5-7!

Share your congratulations and well-wishes to the cast, crew and creatives at Days of our Lives for turning 57 and still going strong, via the comment section.

Then let us know, who is your all-time favorite Salem duo? Doug and Julie? Bo and Hope? Patch and Kayla? John and Marlena? Shane and Kimberly? Sami and EJ? Will and Sonny? Maggie and Mickey? Make sure to weigh-in below.

It was a great episode, and the extended flashback scene (when has a soap had one of those?) with Tom, Alice and Mickey was chicken soup for the soul. Ron has a lot of detractors (which confounds me), but no one can deny that he pays attention to milestones and history. I love that Bill and Susan are still front and center so many years later.

The “Julie” who was arrested 57 years ago was played by Charla Doherty. Susan was a re-cast starting in 1968.

Happy 57th Anniversary. Don’t know how long it will continue on based on some of the stuff I’ve seen lately and would like to forget. Tom and Alice would turn over in their graves.

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
