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!

Hands down the worst actor on daytime. Save Deidre Hall’s job and find her a real actor to match her talents.

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.
