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 danish. Bringing back Eileen Davidson and Louise Sorel and Allison Sweeney and adding Tyler Christopher were genius moves. Add Chandler Massey and it’s a tasty kitchen for sure. I am enjoying the show again. It’s moving and it’s leaving vibrations on every page.

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.

Glad she is back and hope she has a contract. I think she is very genuine on screen. I hope her story is good!

Do not miss Tuesday’s November 20th episode of Days of our Lives, as it marks the final appearance of Christopher Sean in the role of Paul Narita.  How does Paul leave the canvas, exactly? Grab your hankies for an emotional goodbye.

When Sean was brought on to DAYS, not only did he get involved in what would end up being a love triangle with several iterations. but so much more than that, especially since DAYS tackled a pro athlete coming out, and a Japanese American at that, who feared he would not be accepted by his family if they knew the truth about him.  Christopher won the hearts of so many viewers and cast members at DAYS including: his longtime scene partners: Chandler Massey (Will), Freddie Smith (Sonny), and Paul’s on-screen father, Drake Hogestyn (John Black).

Christopher took to Instagram to share his parting thoughts as he exits the show on today’s episode of DAYS: “It’s been an amazing 4 years with @nbcdays 🙂 I am so honored to have the opportunity to bring Paul Narita to life, a Japanese American Gay Professional Baseball Player. An ally to LGBTQ and Just as important an ambassador for Diversity. Representation is so important because we all have an equal place and we all are an important resource to America’s history, not one more important than the other. Change comes when we understand that. Thank you @nbc for taking a chance with me. Thank you Bruce Evans and Ken Corday and Marnie Saitta, Albert Alarr and Janet Rider, Jennifer Sinclair… the list goes on and on. To all the cast and crew on Days, my extended family, thank you! I’ve grown so much with you and created such wonderful memories. To the fans, none of this would be possible without you. All my love and thanks.  My final farewell on Days… whoa. I will miss you all, my home, my beginning. Until Next Time.‬”
