Days Of Our Lives

Drake Hogestyn Exits Days of Our Lives … But For How Long?

Looks like Kristen’s (Eileen Davidson) machinations has John and Marlena (Deidre Hall) right where she wants them! And next week is a critical point for Jarlena fans when after the trust, and the one thing John values most in this world, honesty, appears to have broken down between the long-suffering couple.

On the heels of that, it will pave the way for the exit of Drake Hogestyn (John Black) as previewed in this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now.

Hogestyn will last be seen on next Friday, January 18th’s episode of DAYS when John leaves the canvas for a short while.   But how long will he be away?  How will it affect the war between Kristen and Marlena? A DAYS spokesperson could not be reached for comment.

However in this week’s SOD on what facilitates John’s exit, Drake Hogestyn revealed, “John says he needs space and that he’s confused.”

So soapers what do you think of John exiting Salem?  Do you want to see Drake return to the the soap sooner than later?  Let us know!

This sucks. Not a big fan of Drake but I love it whenever Marlena and John have pivotal stories- I LOVE Deidre Hall.

Sorry, everybody, but now that John has left town, let’s have Marlena go look for him .. and let it take a LONG time for her to find him. I think these two have been on DOOL way too long .. and one of the reasons they keep them is because Days is CRAZY about flashbacks!! Their acting skills have NOT improved….Good luck in your future endeavors, Diedre and Drake…..

I really miss John Black and hope to see him back with Marlena soon.
There both great actors. Also miss Bo very much too. Hope to see them all
together again. Not really the same without them.

Yes, I agree, Drake would be AWESOME as Jeff Webber or a recast Ridge on The Bold and The Beautiful!

Yes, or even a whole new character on DAYS.

I’m prettty sure that this exit is story dictated only, and that it is on a temporary basis. I don’t think DAYS would ditch Drake right now when he’s involved in one of the show’s hottest and most current storylines.

I think he’ll be back soon.

Mary SF
Guest

I agree he will be back, but it would be fun if he bought someone else to town with him- perhaps a recast Bo?

Chloe
Guest
Chloe

Better yet – the real Bo [Peter Reckell] & Stefano!!

Mary SF
Guest
Mary SF

Oh Chloe- I would love PR to come back, but it sounded like he left not under the best of terms with his former bosses. Therefore, I doubt if he would come back unless there was a lot of work behind the scenes to bring him back, but I heard no such rumblings, so I would rather see Bo recast than MIA altogether.

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest
Scott (ATWT Fan)

I think Bo would return to town, but Peter Reckell I’m pretty sure has no desire to return to the series. Plus, I got tired of always seeing him with Hope, a character I do not like. Maybe they could lure back Robert Kelker-Kelly and Julie Pinson as Bo and Billie!

Tonja
Guest
Tonja

I follow PR on twitter – whenever he’s asked about coming back he always says things like “never say never” or “we’ll see”…sounds like he would come back with the right story line. His character was allowed to go by the wayside and be boring… this character shoule be anything but boring! Bring the 80’s Bo back!

Janelle

He’ll come back if the $$$ is good. That’s the real reason he left. He wasn’t willing to take a cut in pay.

Sooner rather than later! It was just starting to get good, John and Marlena were getting involved, the momentum was just picking up, not a good time to send off John. Where does that leave Marlena? Why have they been taken out of their own story? Don’t get it.

Mary SF
Guest

The way the article is worded it sounds more like the actor needs some time off for personal or professional reasons– been a fan of DH for a long time, so I hope there isn’t any serious problem here- would like to see John Black back in town as soon as it is possible, but more importantly I hope whatever DH is confused about gets sorted out quickly for his sake.

Mary SF
Guest
Mary SF

My bad— misread the last line of the article, he was talking about his character John being confused not himself- well that’s a relief- so this is just a story line thing, so if DOOL shoots 3 months in advance- doesn’t the media already know if he is working or how long he was gone for?

Pam
Guest
Pam

Mary it’s NOT Drake’s idea to leave at all. Also, John would NEVER act this way to Marlena; from past story lines.

Mary SF
Guest
Mary SF

Thanks Pam- realized my mistake about two seconds after I posted my comment. It just goes to show you have actors and characters become so interconnected that for a second I forgot his name was Drake not John. I think John leaving must be some plot device- perhaps the ISA has recalled him to duty for some mission that he can’t tell Marlena. Then while away he will either run into a recast Bo or perhaps this will mark the return of Stefano. It does seem strange he would leave Marlena after all they been through, so the writers must… Read more »

Not happy that the writers are having John leave town, so out of character. No atter how angry or upset, he would NOT leave Marlena and Brady with Kristen still lurking around causing havoc…….If the writers and execs need to give vets some time off, I could give them a couple of suggestions…………..Not Drake or Deidre!!!

While Drake is off screen I will not be watching at all! Drake is an exceptional actor and is the reason I tune in. Until he returns my TV will stay off!!

Days has a large and loyal fan base. What those in charge fail to realize, older people have watched days longer then the younger actors have been alive. Drake is one of our favorites, We have spent years not Days of Our Lives watching and being a part of his story lines. It is not fair to the seniors that have tuned into this daytime drama to lose, the most beloved actor in our age group. Please reconsider Drakes swift return, you owe it to your loyal older followers. We are no longer teens, we need John, Marlena, Victor, Caroline,… Read more »

I didn’t see this coming.. as well….. ???? it has to be a vacation… and or personal leave… as DH has had this in the past. I hope and wish him well personally….

John and Marlena… Victor, Maggie, Caroline, Kate… LOVE YOU.

I have to agree… this storyline and/or triangle was just heating up….

Patrick, it;s NOT Drake’s idea to leave. He LOVES the show!

They shouldn’t be writing him out in the FIRST place! I think the show can only BENEFIT from bringing him back front and center SOON, rather than writing him as leaving town and “running away,” which is NOT something John Black would do! Drake is the most underrated and least appreciated actor in daytime, despite what a gracious and accommodating person Drake is with everyone in real life. I hope last week’s episodes have opened some eyes to what a terrific actor he really is – something his fans have always known. He doesn’t deserve to be benched for ANY… Read more »

Denise

I am really hoping Drake returns very soon. It would be really stupid if the writers make him stay away from Marlena. this Brady/ Kristen storyline needs John (Drake) in it or else the whole story would not work well. Drake is a great actor and he would never leave Marlena, Please don’t keep him gone for more than a couple of days.. We need Drake!!!

Days is gong down hill fast! I like all the vets ! They should bring back Peter and Drake and Joe ! I have been watching Drake since 86. I grews up with him being roman! I don’t really want to watch the Teens and Daniel and Chloe and Jennifer. I think he needs to come back and make up with this wife and stop Kristen and brady needs to go away! I think the VETS make the show! Bring Drake ASAP!

Michael, Drake is a wonderful actor & one of the better ones on DAYS. He’s VERY loyal to the show as well! TPTB do NOT appreciate Drake or his talents apparently or they wouldn’t push him out of his own storyline! Drake is even better in person! He appreciates his fan base. That’s a FACT! No one could play the role of John Black besides Drake. He NEEDS to be back to work tomorrow!

Well, all I’ll say about this is I’m leaving WITH John. Thank you Michael very much for letting us know January 18th is when John leaves town because now I don’t have to bother watching on January 21st! Drake Hogestyn has always been a phenomenal actor, but last week he raised the bar and has been nothing short of stupendous. He can play ANY emotion – hurt, sarcastic, angry, disgusted, and compassionate and is a kick ass emotional actor as well! Drake is by far the most underrated and often unappreciated actor in DTTV, so for a week it was… Read more »

He’llbe back. This is just like Dan’s exit last year, it was only short-term. I agree about Jarlena not getting the airtime they deserve, or any of the vets for that matter. The vets either get short-term storylines already used in the past (Kristen’s return) or random short scenes (Lucas and Billie). I’m tired of the Sami Show. Bring back DAYS!!!

It makes no sense at all why they would take Drake out of the mix. This is not the John Black of old. He would have understood Marlena’s reasoning and stood by her side. He would be there to fight Kritter with Marlena and try to make Brady understand the evil of this woman. TPTB and writers, WAKE UP. Listen to your loyal fans and get John back in Salem pronto. D&D have been a part of our lives for so long, PLEASE bring them back together. It is my understanding they are filming three months in advance so it… Read more »

Drake leaving has now given me a reason to leave Days. Drake is a really fabulous actor and really the only reason I continue to watch Days. This show has gone down the toilet, it isn’t the show my grandmother got me hooked on and quite frankly I’m shocked it was even renewed. My last day tuning in will be Friday until Drake is on my screen again.

Helen Kent

Well, as a long-time fan, this is the news that broke the camel’s back. I accepted when Peter left because not only is Drake a gifted actor but he also plays a very realistic hero, but I will not accept losing Drake too. I’m on vacation from watching DAYS unless Drake comes back.

Aaron

I see how this works now at DAYS, get rid of actors like Drake who are wonderful actors and continue to fill the cast up with actors that can’t act, what are TPTB thinking? This move is also my ticket out of Salem. I’d appreciate a heads-up Michael so I know when to tune back into DAYS once Drake is again on the canvas. He makes the show, he isn’t your typical cardboard actor and when he acts he does it with feeling. I have a long list of actors on DAYS that could leave and I wouldn’t blink an… Read more »

I want John back sooner than later. This is what soaps do for me–I like the happily ever after fantasy. It sure beats other programs that are constant failures in relationships. John and Marlena should be able to work things out. No one is perfect and forgiveness is a necessary part of a marriage.

Sandy

What is the purpose of writing Drake off? He finally gets a storyline and then, is let go. I do not like the character of Kristen. There has to be another way, to write a good story for John and Marlena. And where is Stefano? I thought he returned to the show.

These writers have a lot to be desired when it comes to story line. Drake should never have been written out in the first place. I agree, these writers get rid of the experienced actors and think we want to see people everyday that are so stuck on themselves and those who think the world evolves around them. Tired of seeing the 40+ woman act like she’s a teenager and minding everyone’s business. They really need to take a good look at the younger set of cast and realize they can’t act no matter how hard they want them in… Read more »

Drake Hogestyn doesn’t get the respect he should from TPTB. Drake is very loyal to DAYS. It’s a real SHAME! The current head writers don’t seem to know how to write for a complex character like John Black. Drake has fans of ALL ages & his fans are legion. For example, Drake now has over 10,000 followers on Twitter. I don’t understand why they would keep one of their lead actors off the show. IMO Drake should NEVER have been let go in the past & shouldn’t be now! Drake is my favorite actor on DAYS since he started in… Read more »

SOONER for me, I love Drake and he acts circles around the men on DAYS. If anybody should leave town it is the other Black, Brady who with his barechested look every day seems to think he is God’s gift to women (he isn’t).

I’ll return to watching once Drake is back, my blood pressure needs a break from this crappy show anyway so thanks Drake for giving me this DAYS vacation.

Once again these so called writers have found a way to infuriate all of the John and Marlena fans. It makes NO sense to have John leave at this time. Days needs to find writers that are willing and able to write for all the characters, not just a chosen few and that know the rich history of these long time favorites. Deidre and Drake are the heart and soul of Days and should be treated with the respect that they so richly deserve. They are not just the super couple of Days, but of all of daytime.

My partner, Jason and I have been long-time DAYS fans but we’ve always gravitated toward Drake. He is a FAB actor and his character shading, mannerisms and soap nuances are brilliant. We enjoy watching how he works a scene. With that said, DAYS has become so piss poor in terms of writing and over-all production that we actually find ourselves taping the show and only watching back scenes Drake is in.

Drake is my all time favorite actor since 1994 so I’m done with DOOL until they bring him back. It isn’t hard at all to walk away since this soap is a former shell of itself. I think NBC were on crack when they renewed it for a year. It reminds me of somebody who cheats on a test but gets an A+ yet they didn’t deserve it. DAYS is like that too.

I agree, if the writers would listen to the viewers opinion, maybe the ratings wold go back up.
Unfotunately, Peter Reckall, made the decsion to retire, on his own behalf.
Drake has always played this character and to replace him wold be Days final downfall.

Being a long fan of Drake’s, I am once again hurt by the fact that his talent and passion for his work is being put on the back burner. When he and Deidre Hall were brought back to the show this time, a lot of the true die hard fans came back with them. The chemistry between Deidre and Drake is like fireworks. They both care deeply for each other, but more so for the show. They bring grace and royalty to the day time canvas. In a time when “Soaps” are becoming a thing of the past, I would… Read more »

If he doesn’t come back there will be a lot of viewers gone. He and Deidre were let go once and brought back because the fans want them. We want a great storyline.

Days of our Lives Returns To Production After Temporary Halt Amid COVID-19

UPDATED:  According to Deadline  the cast and crew of NBC’s Days of our Lives will actually be returning tomorrow, October 20th to begin taping ahead of schedule after a positive Covid-19 test shut production down originally scheduled for two weeks.

The outlet cited, “Following a thorough investigation including contact tracing, quarantines, testing, and a deep cleaning of the studio, the health and safety experts at Days of our Lives have determined that it was safe to return to production before the end of the two-week period. As a result, the show will be back on set tomorrow Oct 20.”

The word of the early return initially got out Monday, although at that time unconfirmed by the show, apparently, via a posting by Lauren Koslow on her Instagram account where she is pictured in a Kate Roberts outfit in her dressing room.

Koslow shared: “Stepping into Monday in alice + olivia black velvet,” She also tagged the post #dressingroomselfie and the words. “Stay strong.”

She also added a quote from poet Maya Angelou: “Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”

Days Of Our Lives

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 . #❤️ #😘”
