As the entertainment and soap opera world mourn the loss of a truly legend, John Aniston, now comes word as to just when Days of our Lives viewers will see John’s final appearance as Victor Kiriakis.

According to TV Line, Aniston will be seen for the final time on the upcoming December 26th episode on the Peacock streaming series.

Days of our Lives executive producer, Ken Corday has also issued an official statement on the loss of one of its enduring cast members:

Corday expressed: “It is with a heavy heart that we confirm the passing of one of our own — our beloved and legendary cast member and dear friend, John Aniston. It is truly unimaginable to think he won’t be stepping foot on our set again, but it’s comforting to all of us to know that he is at rest and no longer in pain. John was one of the best — kind, smart, witty and incredibly talented. It is enormously fitting that he received the Emmy for Lifetime Achievement this past year. There is no question that all of us at Days will be mourning this great and profound loss. John was an icon, but even more so, he was a pillar of strength and unity for our Days of our Lives community. He, along with our Victor Kiriakis, will forever be in our hearts. Our love and support goes out to his family and all those who knew him.”

John began his DAYS run as the greek business tycoon back in 1985 and just this past summer received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

The news of John’s passing was first shared by his daughter, motion picture and TV star, Jennifer Aniston on her Instagram.

So, will you be tuning-in to see John’s last appearance which looks to be at Christmastime on DAYS? Comment below.

I have watched days since it first aired and will continue watching. RIP John

I would love to, but don’t have Peacock.

Hope they acknowledge it on the show somehow. It will be sad to see Maggie without him. He will be missed. Thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.

Day’s tapes about 6 months in advance,so Victor’s death probably won’t occur until next spring.

The producer said it would air Dec 26, 2022.

His last appearance on the show will air Dec 26th. I don’t think it will be in the storyline yet. But maybe they will have some sort of dedication of the show in his memeory.

Yes he will be greatly missed and I am so afraid Doug will be next I hope not but he looks to be in bad shape like victor was

Hes 96 now. Victor 89. They sure age well!

Yes I think your right I keep thinking about Doug also hate to see all the soap pioneers leave us♥️♥️

OMG! Susan without Bill (Julie without Doug) I don’t even want to think about it. They era of Days is rapidly coming to an end.

Yes I will be watching Victors last appearance. It will not be the same without him.

another actor has left us, and sadly what is out there to replace him will never come close to his level of acting. rest in piece, john.

I can’t imagine anyone in the roll as Victor other than John Anniston. He will truly be missed. Prayers for comfort for the Anniston family and DOOL family!

I’m pissed I can’t watch this show after 40+ years cause it moved to Peacock

So sad—Through the years, these amazing actors/actresses become part of our family. John’s passing is truly a loss. What a wonderful person—He will be forever in my heart. Sweet and peaceful repose, John—you were one of the good guys—-your humor always made me smile—-you will be missed.

Joined Peacock so I could watch DOOL but cancelled when started threesome scenes & became so WOKE & disgusting. No morals any more.

He will always be in my heart as uncle Vic. As will Joe Mascolo as my daddy Stefano. All of the Days cast who have passed are always in my prayers. Thank you all for the entertainment. ✌❤

I will not but wish I could. They should have it on network TV or internet so photos of us who watched the show for so many years and supported the show will be able to see it

Peacock/streaming is on the internet.

Since Day’s tapes about 6 months in advance,Victor’s death will probably happen next spring.

Nice eulogy Ken…He will be sadly missed.

Of course I’ll be tuned in! What an icon and a legend, I was truly upset when I heard the news. These stars become part of us, as soap fans, after decades of watching them, feeling we know them, and feeling the loss when they leave. RIP Mr Aniston, you will be missed and there will be no one that can take the place of Victor K!

Days of our Lives Longtime Lovebirds, Arianne Zucker and Shawn Christian, Set Wedding Date

In the words of Shawn Christian (ex-Daniel, DAYS) himself, “Just remember ya’ll….there is great value in long courtships,” it appears that he and his longtime love. Arianne Zucker (Nicole, DAYS), have finally picked their wedding date, and the destination for their nuptials.

Back in August of 2023, the couple shared that they plan to tie the knot in 2024, and with their latest IG post it looks like the wedding day is becoming closer and closer.

As Days of our Lives fans know, Zucker is suing the soap opera’s producers and production entity, and her last episode should air on July 29th, since the show tapes so far in advance. One can assume, her character, Nicole Walker may get a happy ending and get her baby back before exiting Salem? However, that’s yet to be seen.

In the meantime, the couple who live in Nevada, continue to make plans for their big day. In their newest update, Zucker shared, “We discovered a wedding DESTINATION and DATE DATE! So grateful to everyone who has helped us make this exploration an eye-opening awe-inspiring adventure!”

While Christian chimed in, “I already hear many of you saying ‘finally Shawn!’ Just remember ya’ll….there is great value in long courtships.” #justsaying #loveispatient #loveiscrazy”

Shawn’s journey as Daniel Jonas on DAYS lasted from 2008 to 2017, while Zucker has portrayed Nicole Walker since 1998. The couple have been engaged since 2021.

The duo made no clear mention of the exact wedding date or location in their post, only that they have got things locked in and all systems are a-go!

So, happy to hear that Ari and Shawn are finally about to become husband and wife? Comment below.

TODAY: Days of our Lives Icon Deidre Hall Guest Stars on ‘Hacks’

As we previously reported, Days of our Lives star Deidre Hall (Marlena) is playing a version of herself on the hit Max comedy series, Hacks. The episode dropped today on May 23rd and is already available for streaming.

In it, Deidre plays Jimmy’s mother (Paul W. Downs). For those in the know, Downs is not only one of co-creators and stars of Hacks, but as it turns out is a fan of Days of our Lives.

Speaking on her guest star appearance, Hall told TV Insider, “I was told by Paul and Lucia Aniello (co-creator) that Paul’s mom was a longtime fan of DAYS and of Marlena, and then she introduced him to the show when he was a toddler.“

Deidre added, “So when they were looking for a person to play Paul’s mother, they said, ‘Wait a minute, are we crazy? Why don’t we see if we can get Deidre.’”

As to her guest star turn, Hall previewed,“The script was written that the part is ‘legendary Deidre Hall,’ so I didn’t have to reach too far for what she looks like, what she sounds like, how she moved.”

In story, Deidre got the opportunity to work with Back to the Future’s Christopher Lloyd, whom she shared, “Working with Christopher Lloyd was probably the most daunting thing that’s happened to me for a while.” Hall added, “He was just the loveliest.”


According to Hall, her Days of our Lives co-stars will be tuning-in at some point today or this evening to catch her appearance, which she is very excited about.

Hacks stars Jean Smart as everyone’s favorite comedian Deborah Vance. In season 3, the critically acclaimed and Emmy-wining comedy series explores the dark mentorship between a legendary stand-up comedian and young, entitled comedy writer.
