Jason Cook Returns To Days of our Lives!

Shawn-D comes back in his original form with the return of Jason Cook to Days of our Lives! 

According to Soap Opera Digest: Cook, who was so popular in the role of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Bo’s (Peter Reckell) son Shawn-Douglas Brady, is already taping scenes at the NBC soap opera for events surrounding the series upcoming 50th anniversary in November.

Jason Cook played the eldest child of Bo and Hope from 1999-2006 before leaving the series to work on other projects and other aspects of his career.  His successor was Brandon Beemer.

While storyline is also tight-lipped at DAYS on just how Shawn-Douglas returns to the Salem fold, we can suspect it will also have to do with the re-emergence of his on-screen father Bo, who is also back taping episodes of the long-running daytime drama series.

Are you happy to hear the news that Jason Cook is returning to DAYS for the series 50th anniversary? Let us know!

Jimh,

I commented 18 minutes after you, but your post was not seen until after I commented.

I’m pointing that out, so as not to look uncaring. A thousand returns aren’t as important as your health…GET WELL SOON!!!!!

Jim hope you are feeling better. Agree the returns are great. Hope it doesn’t mean the end of the show. Shawn D loved him, and loved him as Matt on GH. I have to agree on one thing. when you are ill, taking your mind off of it seems to help you for a moment.Get well soon.

Absolutely fantastic news!

It may not be long term, but it’ll be nice nonetheless. We should also have Martha Madison back as Belle! Their daughter, Claire, is coming back too!

JKJ as a returning Philip Kiriakis would be gold!!!

DAYS is delivering!!!!!

Yes! The return of Jason Cook as Shawn-D is awesome news, he’s obviously the original teen Shawn-D from back in the day, and it’s so great he’ll be back for the Bo return and the 50th. Now, I too, would like to hope that Martha Madison returns, too. Of course, I would prefer Kristen Storms, but it’s probably very doubtful she will be released from ABC to pop over to NBC. It would be nice though. But, Martha would be fine, too to return as Belle. Thanks to Days, for making the Jason Cook return happen, and thanks to Jason,… Read more »

I hope the return of these Brady men give some movement to the Bo-Hope saga which seems to have stalled at Reckell’s exit. I have read a lot about Salem to catch up. This news seems very exciting for DAYS fans.

I hope that the return is recurring, if not regular. And that Martha returns as Belle; I missed both of them. v was OK as Shawn-Douglas, but Jason Cook had better chemistry in the role.

This is awesome news! Jason is a really good actor, I loved him on both DAYS and GH. He was great as Shawn-D, better than Brandon Beemer IMO. Hopefully Martha Madison can return next. Can’t wait!

The new writing regime is really going all out and I commend them for it! I love Shawn and its great to see him back with the Bradys. I hope they will announce that Phillip is also returning. Too bad we have to wait till the fall to see all the vets return.

Man Days is going all out for the anniversary! Days is going to be kick ass starting late summer. I’d love to see him return for good, same with Bo and Patch.

There is a rumor that Michael T. Weiss might return, I hope so because that would be great also.

I’d love to see Carrie and Mike return for the anniversary also.

Michael T. Weiss’ Mike was paired with Derya Ruggles’ Robin and Lisa Howard’s April.

Roark Critchlow’s Mike was paired with Christie Clark’s Carrie.

Either one would be good, but Michael T. Weiss would create more buzz.

Days tapes so far in advance, that is almost maddening to hear about all these returns, knowing I have to wait 5 months to actually see it all unfold on screen. Kudos to them for keeping the spoilers to a minimum.

This is excellent news. I have said for months this was needed to keep Hope front and center. It seems like Daniel and Hope have lost a lot of steam lately. I have another idea. Can DOOL bring Jessica Collins on as the new Belle? I still want Nadia, Farah and Jay Kenneth back full time.

Scott

Jessica is too old for belle

BreckRoy

Probably a no on Collins. She’s 44, which would suddenly make “baby sister” Belle now OLDER than Carrie (42), Sami and Eric (36-38), and practically twins with her brother, Brady (early to mid 40s). Belle should be around 30-34 at most (based on her last portrayer) and always younger than every sibling but Paul Narita,the baby in that family.

Get Belle back. It makes NO sense to have Shawn D and Claire back without Belle too. John and Marlena need a visit from their daughter also. It will be interesting to see who else is coming back but they need to do well in the ratings that’s for sure-I think NBC will make their decisions on how this all turns out.

Happy Jason is returning and not his recast, Brandon-also, I hope he leaves his Tom Cruise impression-esque personality behind-he brought this to work everyday while on General Hospital as Drake, Jr-I can’t even remember the character he played..

If Martha Madison cant return they should hire Kristina Sisco to play Belle. She’s about the Right age. She played Charity on Passions.

Victoria Konefal Will Be Back On Days of our Lives

This week Days of our Lives viewers saw the exit of both Theo (Cameron Johnson) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal), much to the chagrin of Cin fans everywhere! But hold on! Days head writer, Ron Carlivati revealed that Victoria Konefal will be back on-screen this summer on the NBC soap opera.

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Carlivati revealed: “From the moment we were coming to that point and we knew Ciara was going to exit town with Theo, we were immediately pursuing the next chapter with Victoria: When would she be available or willing to come back, and when could we tell the next chapter because I knew that would feel unfinished and be unsatisfying to a lot of people. So that’s why I’m happy to announce here that Ciara is coming back and we are going to tell that next chapter of the story and hopefully, this time, the audience will get the payoff that they’re looking for and hoping for.”

And as to just how long will Konefal who chose to go on recurring status with the show be back for her summer run, Carlivati shared: “At this point, and I can’t speak for Victoria and I can’t speak for the show, and this is not an official announcement in any capacity, but I will say at this point, there is not an end date. We are working with Victoria to keep the story going and keep Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s love story alive.”

Cin fans should note that Carlivati added, “I would encourage the audience to remember that they (Cin) have an important anniversary coming up this summer that may figure into their story, so she will be back sooner than you know.”

So, happy to know there will be more of Ben and Ciara? Where you upset to see Ciara exit the canvas with Theo? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Jackée Harry to Appear in Final Season of FX’s ‘Pose’

You can never get enough Jackée, right? Right! The popular actress who recently made her daytime drama return in a new role on Days of our Lives as Paulina, will also be seen next month in the third and final season of the hit and groundbreaking FX series, Pose.

The final batch of episodes bows on May 2, 2021, and Entertainment Weekly revealed that Harry will be part of the last season.

In a tweet on social media, Jackée expressed: “And I’m SO relieved to finally tell you to catch me on the final season of #PoseFX  Consider me honored and over the moon!!!!””

For those who don’t know, Pose is a drama spotlighting the legends, icons and ferocious house mothers of New York’s underground ball culture, a movement that first gained notice in the late 1980s. Making television history, Pose features the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles, including Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore and Hailie Sahar, who co-star alongside Billy Porter, Angel Bismark Curiel, Dyllón Burnside, Sandra Bernhard and Jason Rodriguez. The Golden Globe-nominated drama also features the largest recurring cast of LGBTQ actors ever for a scripted series.

In the final season of Pose, it’s now 1994 and ballroom feels like a distant memory for the character of Blanca who struggles to balance being a mother with being a present partner to her new love, and her latest role as a nurse’s aide. Meanwhile, as AIDS becomes the leading cause of death for Americans ages 25 to 44, Pray Tell contends with unexpected health burdens. Elsewhere, the emergence of a vicious new upstart house forces the House of Evangelista members to contend with their legacy.

Pose was co-created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals, who executive produce alongside Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall, Sherry Marsh and Janet Mock. Our Lady J is co-executive producer.

Excited to see Jackée featured in the upcoming season of Pose? Enjoying her as DAYS Paulina? Comment below.
