Days of our Lives is set to be honored at this year’s Hollywood Christmas Parade taking place on Sunday, November 30th!

As the soap kicks off its 50th year next year, current cast members will be on hand to participate in a special presentation to commemorate its enduring run on NBC.

Scheduled to take part in all the Tinseltown festivities are: Deidre Hall (Marlena), Kristian Alfonso (Hope), Suzanne Rogers (Maggie), Galen Gering (Rafe), Lauren Koslow (Kate), Peggy McCay (Caroline), Joseph Mascolo (Stefano), Greg Vaughan (Eric), Bill Hayes (Doug), Susan Seaforth-Hayes (Julie), John Aniston (Victor), Shawn Christian (Daniel), Arianne Zucker (Nicole), Eric Martsolf (Brady), Kate Mansi (Abigail), Guy Wilson (Will), True O’Brien (Paige), Drake Hogestyn (John), Jen Lilley (Theresa), Mary Beth Evans (Kayla), Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), Casey Moss (JJ), Billy Flynn (Chad), Molly Burnett (Melanie), Meredith Scott Lynn (Anne), Aloma Wright (Maxine) and Christopher Sean (Paul).

Plans call for the DAYS to make their way down the parade route in an eye-catching presentation, featuring the show’s new 50th anniversary logo! There, the Salemites will then be greeted by parade hosts, Laura McKenzie and Erik Estrada, and presented a special honor to acknowledge their success!

DAYS Co-EP Greg Meng stated on the honor: “What better way to start the countdown to Days of Our Lives’ 50th anniversary on NBC than to be part of the iconic Hollywood Christmas Parade? We look forward to celebrating this holiday season with viewers across the country!”

Jim Romanovich, President of Worldwide Media for Associated Television International, added, “Days of Our Lives is an incredible success story and has been such an influential show to audiences over the years. It is, and continues to be, the cornerstone of NBC daytime programming. As fans of the show, we are thrilled to give them the tribute they deserve in this prestigious event.”

The Hollywood Christmas Parade will air on Wednesday, December 10 at 4 pm on Hallmark Channel and on Friday, December 19 at 5 pm on Hallmark Movie Channel. Check local listings for additional TV stations and times in your market and area!

That’s nice. I wish that ALL MY CHILDREN could have made it to a 50th anniversary, though 42 years is nothing to sneeze at. I now watch DAYS OF OUR LIVES because I miss AMC and I need a soap fix. I’m a fairly new viewer, less than a year but DAYS is a good show. I do get tired of every character getting shot in that Fake leaf Park and I think they could use some new sets (does everyone have coffee in Brady’s Pub all the time?) but aside from that it’s a good show.

I found a friend in you, Troy. I enjoyed many soaps through the years but never DAYS… until I lost ATWT, AMC and OLTL. DAYS filled the void and though late to Salem, I am glad I can be there nearly every day to watch the goings on… although I still cannot keep everyone’s lineage straight! 🙂

I understand! I was thinking yesterday, when Kayla told Theresa in the Hospital that she and Brady “would have to wait an hour” for the pregnancy test result, she suggested that they “go to the Pub for Coffee”. Really? Doesn’t the Hospital like maybe have a Cafeteria where they could have had coffee? Everyone winds up in that Pub sooner or later, be it breakfast lunch or dinner. Honestly, the actors are quite competent but brother they need some diversification regarding Sets. Over at ABC-TV on All My Children, it seemed to me they had outdoor sets, location shots, and… Read more »

By the way, thank-you Michael for providing this information about Days’ special honor at the Hollywood Christmas Parade. I made an inquiry (earlier today I think) about Days’ participation in this year’s festivities. So this article was right on time for me.

I really do appreciate how you keep fans informed about what is going on with our favorite soaps. Thanks for your diligent hard work!

Now i’m going to have to convince someone to go with me because these people CAMP OUT just in hopes of being seen when all I want to do is see…but you know what…I have friends who rush to Emmy and Oscar red carpets where it’s just not worth the headache..but ok…I thinks me might do this one for once. The best thing about living in Los Angeles isn’t looking for your favorites…it’s just running into them ALL OVER the place…but this is something I do want to see…

Who is Christopher Sean (Paul)???

Christopher Sean plays the baseball player named Paul. Paul is Dr. Dan’s patient who is flirting with all the girls. He looks to be part Asian. He first was seen on Friday’s episode.

He’ll most likely turn out to be gay because the flirting is overkill to throw the viewers off.

Raven Bowens is the New Chanel on DAYS

There has been a casting switcheroo at Days of our Lives.   Precious Way is out in the role of Chanel Dupree and the part had been recast.

Way debuted on-screen back in March of 2021, but now comes word, first via Jason 47’s Facebook page, that Chanel will be played by actress Raven Bowens.

According to Soap Opera Digest, look for Bowens to first air on-screen on the July 6th episode.  Apparently, she has been taping at the DAYS set since April.

Raven has previously appeared on All Rise, Insecure, The New Edition Story and Future Man.

You can follow her on Instagram here.

So, what do you think of the Chantal switch? Comment below.

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
