It’s been months since fans of Days of our Lives have seen Freddie Smith on their screens as Sonny Kiriakis.

The last time he was in Salem was for the heartbreaking funeral of his husband, Will.  But that will finally change on the Tuesday, July 26th episode of the NBC soap when Daytime Emmy winner Smith begins again as Sonny returns to Salem.  Many are hoping Sonny will rekindle his relationship with his former flame, Paul Narita (Christopher Sean).  Will time and instance heal old wounds? Will time away to grieve for Will open up Sonny to new possiblities?

In this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Smith teases: “You’re going to see Sonny interacting with everyone.  I get to work with a lot of new people.”

So, what are your hopes for the character of Sonny this time out? Share your thoughts in the comment section below. But first watch next week’s promo for DAYS ushering Smith back to the show after the jump.

Days needs shocking twists…like Celia said Caroline gets pregnant by Victor…An outraged Maggie threatens divorce…a pleading Victor explains he only slept with Caroline because no one else would and he felt sorry for the tramp..Maggie understands…’Oh my darling Victor,’ coos Maggie.’What a sweet kind man you are!.Always ready to help the less unfortunate!’…this turns Maggie on!…with lightening-like movements, Maggie rips off Victor’s jacket and shirt, throws him to the floor in the K mansion and makes mad passionate love to him…sparks fly and starts a fire in the K mansion…Maggie suddenly develops super hero strength…Victor’s back is out so Wonder Woman Maggie lifts him off the floor and carries him outside the burning mansion…Meanwhile, Caroline, upset Vic will have nothing to do with her and the baby, vows revenge…and her belly has unexpectantly grown huge days after getting pregnant…Caroline, her hormones out of whack, chases Maggie with an ax around the town square, Caroline’s belly flapping like a bobble head…Nicole, Kate and Chloe are there but do nothing to help Maggie because they are too busy talking about hunky Deimos whom every lady and man in town are attracted to and they have declare him the next Dr. Danial Jonas…Caroline chops up Maggie and serves her remains to Brady Pub Customers in her famous clam chowder…those who eat the chowder with Maggie’s remains find themselves wearing red shoes and hearing the Days theme repeatedly in their heads-‘Like Sands Through The Hour Glass…So Are The Days Of Our Lives!’…90 (Caroline’s age) days later Caroline gives birth to a demon baby with Vic’s dastardly mustache, razor sharp teeth and a Kim Kardashian rear…the demon baby crawls around Salem biting people with its razor sharp teeth…all its victims will die from the deadly bite…the only cure is its victims must listen to Miley Cyrus or Justin Beiber music…horrified that is the only alternative for them to survive, every victim chooses death-lol

Oh, Sonny returns…maybe for Paul…and for the return of Chandler Massey as Will Horton who survived Ben’s attack…he was revived off camera after someone detected a faint heartbeat but has been in a coma all this time…Will wakes up but has amnesia!!!

I am looking forward to seeing Freddie back as Sonny. Now that Will is dead, it is time for Sonny to move on. If that means with Paul, then so be it. He had been hiding his feelings for Paul from Will for a long time, and even told Will he was “delusional ” to think Sonny still loved Paul. Well now we know Will did not imagine it at all. But Will is no longer in the way so Paul and Sonny can finally have it all with no distractions. I just hope that Sonny gets a story that is independent from Paul and vice versa. Because If all we see is Paul and Sonny in a relationship with no actual story to keep them interesting, they will become stale and boring in no time.

Right on, Jimmy!! My hope for Sonny is to be reunited with Will (Chandler).

Oh, my Lord, Jimmy. I wish I could send you a recording of my laughter. I am laughing so hard, as I am reading your post, my side hurts. Tears streaming down my face.
My sisters are here….you’ve got them going, too.
Caroline has twins….with horns. Each horn is bejeweled with the name ‘Stefano’. Uh-oh !!!! Caroline cheated on Victor!!!!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Was that you…..i think i did hear you-and we live thousand miles apart-lol…i actually wish Days would had done that Caroline preggers exactly how i had written it as an unexpected April Fools Day prank for its viewers-it would had been so funny and a nice change from all that bleakness-better yet…really make Caroline with child…if Doc Evans can be possessed by the devil and also a serial killer who really killed no one i say why not?-lol

That would be great too and a daytime first-Caroline cheats on Victor with a dead man Stephano-love it-you are now my co-writer-lol

I’m very happy to have Freddy Smith and Sonny back on the canvas. I don’t want him to get romantically involved with Paul. It’s nothing against Paul. I just didn’t like the two of them together. They should be good friends; but nothing more. I’m thinking after the tragic murder of Will, it will probably be sometime before Sonny is ready to open himself to romance again. And when the time comes, please let it be someone other than Paul. Why have Sonny move backward? He needs to move forward with his life.

I think as you do, Llanviewer. I’m thrilled to have the talented, gorgeous Freddie Smith back. But the chemistry between him & Chandler Massey still sticks with me. Someone new might be just what Sonny needs. Maybe they can lure Robert Adamson, Y&R’s Noah, over to DAYS now that he’s been cut to recurring status. Or Brandon Barash, ex-Johnny from GENERAL HOSPITAL? Can you imagine the sparks? You’d need the Fire Department on standby!

Welcome back, Freddie Smith!

Freddie signed a one year contract with an option for an additional year. During his live Facebook chat today, Freddie said he couldn’t think of anyone he hasn’t worked with in the cast this time around. He also was shocked to see a man on set that will surprise us all, but the secret returnee won’t be seen on air for four more months.

The secret returnee could be Chandler Massey unless he’s already been taping or the returnee could be Drake Hogestyn! We’ll see.

Other surprise return possibilities are Greg Vaughan (Eric) or JKJ (Philip).

Oh honestly we can do without the ex-father Eric coming back, can’t we? He’s so whiney and sanctimonious I just can’t take it.

For me, Sonny’s return is too little too late. I won’t be returning as a regular viewer. I think Chandler Massey will make an appearance as Will, but only as a flashback to happier times or a vision in which Will tells Sonny it’s okay to move on and find love and happiness.

I agree; I stopped watching when Eileen Davidson’s short arc was up. Unfortunately, the show just does not interest me any longer. I still read the updates here and there, and it just seems boring, dull, and very dark.

I hope Paul and Sonny get together and that Will never comes back.

I want Sonny to reunite with Will, who is alive.

Am thrilled Sonny K is back in Salem!!! Mr. Smith has the presence and talent to carry a very strong story, one that is based in humanity and the very reality of grief and moving on with one’s life. A genuine plot that is on which serial drama and family-centric storytelling is based.

I am weary of the nefarious GH-wannabe shenanigans of diMeras and the dark cloud over Salem. Romance, redemption, fresh starts, human passions and emotions. Bring it!

Tom Jenkins

Well is Sonny returns, it can only HELP this draggy show. The writing has been terrible, and the plotlines so very boring.
I don’t think they will bring back the character of Will. My guess, for I don’t know for sure, will be the ghost of Will telling Sonny that it is all right to move on with his own life.
At any rate, it’s nice that Sonny will be back.

I love the fact that Freddie smith is back as Sonny. And while I originally feel in love with the pairing of Will and Sonny, due to the lack of any kind of indication at the moment that Will is going to be revived from the dead I like to see where they might go with Sonny and Paul but over time, not immediately. Ari I think being still very much in the picture with Sonny’s return will be and show be a factor in choices Sonny’s makes. It was one for Gabi when she began dating JJ. Her decision was helped by the fact that Ari had been around JJ prior to Gabi dating him.

Glad to see him back,the show needs some kind of excitement ,i mean it has been so slow lately.

THAT’s a kind understatement, the show has been moving at a snail’s pace lately, with very few storylines that are compelling. That is unless one thinks that Belle and Shawn talking about their daughter’s singing career is interesting – I am glad that Sonny is back – now get some new sets and some compelling actors to interact with him and MAYBE this draggy show will improve.

I hope he reunites with Will (Chandler)

have Freddie smith play all of his brothers on days of our lives that would be a challenge for any actor. sonny seams to be the only son that wants anything to do with his parents.

How come there wasn’t ONE WORD on this page about the return of Derrick (the former bell Hop) who has now returned to cause some (much needed) trouble between the possibility of Sonny getting back with his former love, Paul?
I would have thought that this site would have given us the scoop that – as many of us suspected – we had not heard the last from Derrick who is now supposedly working at the Hospital in Administration.

WATCH: ‘Saturday Night Live’s’ Cold Open: ‘Days of our Impeachment’

In a week that saw Days of our Lives make the mainstream news media, Saturday Night Live decided to spoof the current President Trump impeachment hearings and turn them into its own amped up soap opera, with special guest star, Jon Hamm.  The hearings are also currently upsetting many a soap fan its pre-emptions of their network daytime dramas.

In the SNL cold open; Mad Men alum Jon Hamm took on the role of  former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Bill Taylor.  Kate McKinnon reprised her portrayal of President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, while Heidi Gardner played a fainting soapy impeachment hearing attendee.

Meanwhile, SNL’s Alex Moffat played House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff and Mikey Day served as “cross-examiner” Republican Rep. Jim Jordan.  Cecily Strong took on the role of former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch and Pete Davidson portrayed  attorney Michael Avenatti.  Then, Kenan Thompson stopped by as  suspended NFL player Myles Garrett and Melissa Villaseñor played “telenovela sensation,” Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

As “AOC”, Melissa says: “This hearing is lacking one thing — a star!” . She then let her hair down and makes out with Taylor played by Hamm.

Now below watch Days of our Impeachment and let us know what you thought of the send-up via the comment section below!

DAYS Brock Kelly and Y&R’s Donny Boaz Make Debuts: What Were Your First Impressions?

This week saw the arrival on the soap scene of two characters who look to figure heavily into story in the towns of Salem and Genoa City.  First, over at Days of our Lives during their first week of episodes with their time-jump, Brock Kelly appeared in his first scenes as Evan, the manny, to little David.

On DAYS, Evan looks to being taking an interest in a grieving and distraught Sonny (Freddie Smith), who is dealing with the anniversary of his mother’s death and that his husband, Will (Chandler Massey) is in prison for the crime that killed her (whatever that is has yet to be revealed).

For Brock Kelly this is not his first time on DAYS, having last been on the show back in 2005 as Abigail’s (then played by Ashley Benson) first boyfriend, Josh.

Over at Y&R, the much talked about Chance Chancellor finally arrived in Genoa City, and already had a confrontation with Cane (Daniel Goddard), helped save the day in a hostage crisis, and more.

Actor Donny Boaz has already mixed things up with many a resident of the town and shared scenes with Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mark Grossman (Adam), and more.  This is Boaz’s first daytime soap.  The last time Chance was in Genoa City he was played by John Driscoll.

Melissa Reeves Talks On DAYS Time-Jump; Paul Telfer & Eric Martsolf Chat Between Their Scenes On ‘Inside Salem’ Podcast

On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, the special guest is enduring DAYS star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), who found herself as the catalyst for the year time-jump and flash-forward that fans are now watching play out on the daytime drama series.

Last week, Jennifer was pushed off a balcony following her wedding to Jack by Princess Gina.  And on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Jennifer woke up out of a coma to learn from Jack that she has been asleep for a year.

Now with a year having passed in Salem, Jennifer learns bits of information of what has happened to her loved ones.  Meanwhile, Eve is in lock-up for the crime against Jennifer, and it appears Jennifer cannot put the pieces together of who pushed her on that fateful night to clear Eve.

In addition during the podcast, Melissa chats with host Michael Fairman on the passing of John Clarke (Ex-Mickey), and being one of the core characters tied to the legacy of the Hortons – the first family of Salem.

As to the initial reaction to the time-jump, Melissa reveals that the entire cast was very excited, but all the pressure of the attention to detail was discussed with make-up, hair, and in the writing and production.

Reeves shares the entire DAYS team was up for the challenge. Melissa also reveals during the dramatic scenes where Jennifer’s family was acting emotional circles around her, that she fell asleep during her scenes while she was playing Jennifer in a coma.

Later, Paul Telfer and Eric Martsolf have a little hang out discussion in between scenes, that is often hilarious when you can imagine getting Xander and Brady, and their real-life portrayers, Paul and Eric, in the same room in front of a microphone.
