So many long time fans of Days of our Lives have been ecstatic at the news that fan favorite, Drake Hogestyn is finally back in the saddle at the NBC soap as John Black.

And today on Halloween, Hogestyn tweeted  his confirmation on his arrival back in Salem,  “Happy All Hallow’s Eve! The Treat?…I’m back in Salem! The Trick?…I sold my house and have no place to live! Now that’s scary! Yikes!”

Due to DAYS production schedule, in which they tape four months ahead, look for Drake to be back on your screens in early 2014!

Excited to hear confirmation on his return to DAYS from Drake himself?

OMG Michael, OVER the top giddy doesn’t even begin to explain how overjoyed I am to hear confirmation that Drake is back on DAYS! Talk about receiving the best EARLY Christmas present ever! I haven’t watched DAYS since this amazing actor was removed from my television screen, so it looks like next year DAYS goes back on my lineup! Drake’s Tweets are so much fun to read! WELCOME BACK, DRAKE!

I am sooooooo beyond excited. I was so happy to meet you at the book signing in Durham, NC. You are the sweetest person. I loved hearing your story of your Aunt that lives here. I can NOT wait to see you blessing my screen again. Days has NOT been the same without you 🙂

Yes!!!!! Yes!!!! Yes!!!!! The way the writers had John treat Marlena made no sense. I wish they could erase those scenes but since they can’t, I hope they will so something to reunite them [after he grovels for forgiveness. LOL]. I’m just happy that John Black is coming back to town. And that’s a fact!!!

I’m MORE than thrilled that Drake is back where he belongs – DAYS – where he never should have been benched! Thanks so much for confirming the news for us, Michael and Drake! We’re counting down the days until we can turn our TV’s back on to watch him again. He’s been very much MISSED! We love you, Drake!

I’m so HAPPY that Drake is coming back home to Days! It has not been the same since he left! maybe him and Doc can get back on straight! Brady can be ok and we get rid of Kritter! I want to see him and Stefano to get into a BIG ARGUMENT! Let Stefano take Doc and let John find his wife! The fans want a GOOD love scene too and we want an explanation why he fell had feeling for kritter! Brady needs to go in a psych ward and they need to bring BELLE back!

Am I happy that Drake is back in Salem? Is the Pope Catholic? Of course I am! SCREAMS…. Drake Hogestyn should NEVER have been benched!! I’m a LONG time DAYS watcher(since 1972) & I haven’t watched for weeks because Drake/John hasn’t been in Salem!! The writers have certainly lost the romance & humor of the DAYS of the 80’s & 90’s. I hope & pray they get their act together & give Drake a nice LONG storyline;like I expected last Fall but didn’t get! Drake Hogestyn MAKES DAYS now! I am a FAN of Drake’s for life! He’s a wonderful man & actor who has always been LOYAL to DAYS since he first arrived in 1986! I have NEVER met another person like Drake! I can’t wait till the new year to start watching DAYS again!!!!!

P.S. DAYS writers please write story lines that Tom & Alice would be proud of once again! They are probably rolling over in their graves with the story lines now!

Hi! I have watched Drake ever since the late 80’s. I ‘am SO HAPPY THAT he is coming back to days! This is what I think should happen. Stefano and John get into a big war and Stefano should take marlena and John should come back and rescue her! They should also bring back Belle and let Brady get his head back on straight and when John comes back into town . Marlena should not talk to him at first because she is upset that he supposly had feeling for Kritter! Let them argue and get upset at each other and then a GOOD LOVE scene and then they can get married !

Joyce

I am THRILLED beyond words that The Black is Back! Can’t wait to see what’s in store for John & Marlena!

My heart about leapt out of my chest when I heard the news! So glad to hear he’s coming back to Days & we’re hoping they edit him in for some mistletoe-fantasy-smoochin between John & Marlena, we got jipped last year & we need a J&M fix!!

Welcome back, Drake – we missed you & we NEVER gave up!! <3

I forgot to say also, that Drake is my favorite actor ever. To me, when he plays Roman/John, he is the essence of a hero/friend/lover/husband/dad/priest/mercenary, anything that is thrown at him. He gives 110% to any role they give him and plays it has he is that character. I have been a fan since 1986, when I being a born and raised Hoosier was visiting in Denver, and saw the show with him on it. Went back to Anderson, south of Fort Wayne and since then he has been my all time favorite male actor. I can see him in about any role he is given. I am now retired and living in Florida

Marlenanba is a very good actress. However with Drake and Kristen I believe the writers did drop the ball. So much more could we see of Kristens talents as a sophisticated saboteur, possible head of Dimeras against John , mature , sophis, dynamic , puzzling so forth. Not all that non sense. In fact I like John better with Kristen than Marlena, Marlena is dull, no fault of her own lately. I like her now with or without John not because john is a bad actor.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Gabi’s Revenge Plot Begins To Unfold; Watch Out Abigail and Stefan!

Evil Gabi is back on Days of our Lives, and that means some great material for Camila Banus (Gabi) to sink her teeth into. After all, who doesn’t love a Gabi scorned?!  This week, viewers already learned that Gabi has already switched the paternity results to make it look as if Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of Abigail’s (Marci Miller) unborn child, when it is really Chad’s (Billy Flynn).  To top it off, she is manipulating and “advising” Gabi on what to do about her paternity secret

On Tuesday’s episode while in the park, Gabi reflects on changing the paternity results and says out loud to herself: “Karma is a bitch. Since you and Stefan ruined my life …” but she stops talking when all of a sudden Stefan appears.  He wants to talk about “Gabi Chic”, and their mutual business interests, but she’s not having it one bit!

She blasts him and his fictitious girlfriend “Gabby” for framing her for murder, and all that has transpired in her life since then including: being beaten up in prison, which has left her unable to have any more children, due to a surgery and an infection she developed while in the slammer for a crime she did not commit.

Gabi says she is not like her ‘Madre.”  She believes in revenge and that people like him deserve to be punished, and that she wants to see him suffer like she has. Stefan is hoping that Gabi will eventually trust him, put the past behind them, and work together.  Stefan exits and once alone, a vengeful Gabi says:  “You and your little whore, Gabby, took something from me that’s precious. Now it’s my turn to take something from you.”

Then to put an exclamation point on her revenge plot, Gabi grins that “all hell will break loose.”

Are you glad to see Gabi back with an edge as she plans to make Abigail and Stefan’s life a living hell? What do you think will be the next move in her master plot? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?

Check out more teasers for this week’s DAYS below, and then watch the latest promo for this week’s episodes via NBC here.
