More big returns coming up on NBC’s Days of our Lives! Jen Lilley has returned to the daytime drama reprising her role of Theresa Donovan.

Fans can look for Theresa to pop back up in story beginning in May of 2018, since DAYS tapes six months ahead.

In heavy emotional story, viewers last saw Theresa having to break the heart of Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) and leave her son, Tate, and hightail it out of Salem or else those she loved would be in grave danger.

Lilley was last seen on-air a year ago back in November of 2016.  Just how long Jen’s return this time has not been specified.

Soap Opera Digest broke the news of Lilley’s return.

Now that Kassie DePaiva is back on the canvas as Eve  Donovan, might the sisters fight over Brady Black? Hmmm. 

So, happy to hear Jen Lilley will be back on DAYS? Comment below!

Ohhh, yeahhh, Patrick….I have been praying for this to happen. ….but, if she and Brady come together as one, again? I will scream!!!!
Brady is a screw-up, a spoiled brat, a holier-than-thou idiot….not that Theresa’s soul is sooo pristine , there are a few black stains in there, somewhere ( anima macchiata–tainted soul)….. she always fessed up to what she was and made no excuses. When she ‘changed’, she was genuine.
Nonetheless, I would love some of that leftover spicy thinking work against or with Vivian. Imagine that?!?
Welcome back Jenn.

This is such wonderful news! Jen Lilley is an amazing actress and person. I am so glad Days is welcoming her back. I hope it’s a contract role and the truth about Theresa’s departure comes to light. Brady needs to know. It would be also great to see Charles and Patsy back too as Shane and Kim. Days is back to being must see tv again. 🙂

I agree that Jen Lilley is an amazing actress and i’m happy she’s returning to Days.As for Theresa, i have a feeling she won’t be happy with the way Brady has been leading his life recently.So it may not be a happy reunion for Theresa and Brady.Plus i keep wondering if something happens to Tate and that leads to Theresa’s return.

I’m so happy that Jen Lilley is coming back. I hope they do the story surrounding Theresa properly. First they need tell us all how Theresa gets away from the man from Mexico. Then the writers have to have Theresa explain, or try to explain, to Brady why she left.

Short and sweet: thank you Ron Carlivati. If it weren’t for you all we would see is Kayla and Patch dancing disco down the yellow brick road while eating clam chowder from the diner. (while looking for his eye). Ron knows what makes people jump high and he has been slamming em hard. The characters he is bringing back are the ones who make the stories move. Not the characters that refuse to act their ages. Kayla and Patch are icons of Salem yes but let’s have them investigate things like Social Security fraud and the high cost of prune… Read more »

Good to see Theresa back. She resembles the spirit of the original Eve Donovan a lot more than the current impostor “Eve” does.

Great news! Hopefully Theresa is back for good, Brady needs her! I’m glad the actress returned, I’m sure having Ron C. as head writer made her want to come back. Dena was horrible.

‘Days of our Lives’ to Honor James Reynolds’ 40th Anniversary as Abe Carver with Special Episode

As DAYS viewers witnessed on Friday’s episode, Abe has been shot in the park, after Carmine pulls out a gun, and Jake (Brandon Barash) tries to apprehend him.  Jake rushes to Abe’s side and calls an ambulance and he is rushed to University Hospital.  Once there, Abe eventually flatlines, while Lani (Sal Stowers), Paulina (Jackee Harry) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are besides themselves with worry.

This sets the stage for Monday’s episode where Abe will go into the light, as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) works to save his light and while he hovers between life and death, DAYS fans are treated to the special 40th anniversary episode of James Reynolds as Salem’s Abe Carver.   The Daytime Emmy-winning actor, (he won Lead Actor in 2018) began his Salem journey when he first aired back on October 29th, 1981.

While Abe revisits the past, he will meet up with his late wife and love of his life, Lexie, only according to Soap Opera Digest, Renee Jones was not available to be a part of the milestone episode. So, in a pivot another actress was brought in.

Reynolds told SOD on the Lexie appearance, “The young actress they brought in to be part of this was just wonderful“n giving the essence of (their) relationship and communicated beautifully, just beautifully, in her face and her eyes, as Renee did quite so often.”  He added, “I was kind of transported, actually.”

In addition, James continues to be the the longest-running black actor in the same role in television history.

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.
