Peter Reckell Clarifies Tweet To Fans: "Sorry If I Got Your Hopes Up Re DAYS. When I Said There's Movement, It's For Something Else"

Over the past few days, we have reported that popular former Days of our Lives star Peter Reckell took to Twitter and said out at tweet that his legions of fans believed or inferred that was related to the possibility for him finally returning to the NBC soap opera in the role of Bo Brady, either to wrap up his love story with Hope (Kristian Alfonso), or to make some kind of deal for a longer visit.

However, Reckell now took to his Twitter account to clarify that a return to Salem was not what he was talking about!  Peter now tweeted: “Sorry if I got your hopes up re Days. When I said there’s movement, its for something else. That Old saying about doors opening and closing;)”

Now the question is, what else could Reckell be talking about?  A new project? Going to another soap?

In addition, prior to that tweet, Reckell sent out a series of tweets as a statement that read:  “About a year and a half ago, DOOL called me and we tried 2 work out something. But we couldn’t come to an agreement. Money was NOT the issue. Weeks ago you filled me in on what was happening with Hope’s storyline. I called the show to see if it was time for Bo to make an appearance. With the connection Bo and Hope have always shared, I thought he could give her the OK to move on with her life, in a dream or something. But the writers have written far ahead, and my suggestions are a bit too late. Which makes sense, so nothing came of that conversation. You say Bo’s actions are out of character. That’s a writer’s way of foreshadowing something,in character, happening down the road.”

So, what do you think about Peter’s sentiments now?  Are you disappointed by the news that there is no movement on a return for Peter to DAYS?  Share your thoughts below!

Why dont he explain himself?…well, ive moved on to a Hope and Aiden pairing…no matter if its the fault of PR or TPTB, should Kristen A. just sit in the background and forget about Hope until if and when Bo returns or not…i say the actress and her character deserves better…so do us fans…drop Bo for good…Kristen/Hope need to move forward…end of story!!!

I agree with both of you. I’ve moved on, too. Of course an actor has a right to leave a show. Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t Bo go sailing and Hope joined him for a while but cam back to Salem without him? And then later she found out from John of all folks that Bo is on a super-secret mission to bring Stefano down? It was so secret I guess that he couldn’t call. But he flew John there to announce it. Oy! Not great writing if that’s the case. He just needs to say nothing else… Read more »

I just think this is PRs way of keeping his name in the spolight like VW ex Dru-Y&R has done!!!

But the difference is VR actually still works and juggles so many other gigs. So even as she whines, at least she still books job. On PR, it just comes across as Meh….

Maybe Peter should shut down his twitter account. He’s using twitter to hold people hostage…not nice!

Im enjoying the show without him…ive watched since it began in 1965 and ive seen the show loose far better and more interesting actors and actresses over the years…if he ever comes back or he never comes back no longer matters to me!!!

I’m also OK without PR. Hope and Aiden are interesting and will be in full swing of things when Melissa Archer’s character arrives.

I agree with 4ever Days and jimh-I think he wrote this knowing that it would obviously spark some controversary and interest. I, myself, began watching Days when RKK was cast as Bo-who I liked. I was never a fan of Peter’s Bo-always too cocky-why?-he never seemed to solve a case for the Salem PD! HA!

actors need to stay relevant, I’m sure that is his way to “not be forgotten” 😉

I gave up on Days awhile ago but I thought it was horrible how the show put K.Alfonso in limbo. I guess now that she has an actual storyline, viewers are enjoying it again and SHE deserves it! She stayed with the show and didn’t gripe about stuff like Peter did – so ….. time for Peter to just stop talking about it. I’ve always been a BO & HOPE fan but Peter has a tendency to talk too much!

Peter can’t help it if people constantly jump to conclusions. His exit was handled very poorly. The character should have been killed off. It would have given Alfonso a storyline to sink her teeth into and allowed Hope to move on. Instead, Hope’s been in limbo and Bo looks like a douchebag for deserting his family. The nasty comments being directed at him by Hope fans on Twitter and forums are unwarranted. The man gave Days 30+ years and many viewers who were diehard Bo and Hope fans have now turned on him. Poor form. On the other hand, Alfonso… Read more »

I love Bo and Hope and I’ve been a big fan of Peter’s, but this Twitter drama is too much for too long. He did get fans’ hopes up, as he had intended, and now he has to deal with that. IMO, it’s bad form for any actor to tweet as he did before he had something concrete to announce, or really, before the show had something to announce, since it’s really not his place to steal the thunder from DOOL. And I know that Peter said it might not come to be anything, but at the same time, I… Read more »

I agree with what you say Beth!
I’m a fan of Bo & Hope and I wish Peter well .. but his Up & Down behavior on the show is annoying. They couldn’t just keep K.Alfonso in limbo until Peter was “ready” again.
I still think that the way they treated RKK when Peter was on his “I want to return” kick was horrible … I’m sure RKK would have stuck around for awhile and been pleased to be a part of the show.

I have to agree with you Mo. If this had been the first tweets to come out I would’ve given him the benefit of the doubt. But this has been going on for a long while now. What strikes me odd in his statement is that he said he found out LAST WEEK what was going on with Hope’s storyline and called to see if it was time for him to make an appearance to give her the ok the move on. Gosh that just sounds bad the way he worded it. But anyway, since he knows they film months… Read more »

I agree with the others who are over Bo/Peter. He doesn’t need to come back to tie up anything. I think the writers got rid of him just fine.
Moving on…

He’s becoming another Victoria Rowell with all the silly post character drama. He will continue to alienate himself with his fans and the show until they kill his character off camera and he is truly forgotten. KNOCK IT OFF PETER RECKELL.

That rumor has been out there for a while though. GH would be better off picking up James Scott as a long-lost Cassadine. JS has a HUGE following still & to see him as an evil character again? YES PLEASE!!!

The show should be more flexible and find a way to get Bo in there for an episode or two if he wants to do it. Fans would enjoy it so it would be a win/win. GH does cameos all the time for a few episodes and it keeps you guessing because you never know who is going to show up. Days seems less flexible in that regard – the cast is more or less “set in stone” at any given time with very few surprises. I’d rather see Bo pop in for cameos than have him “on the canvas”… Read more »

Honestly I am starting to believe that it is less the show’since fault and more his. I like the Hope and Aiden pairing, but the right recast could work for Bo as well…maybe Robert Kelker Kelly could take on the role again as he is not on GH anymore. Other suggestions are Ricky Paul Goldin or John Loprieno!

Days is written and mostly shot six months in advance. It doesn’t matter what fans want or don’t want. I don’t really see anything wrong with that. Fans are unrealistic sometimes. There are four soaps left so the actors have little choice anymore if they want to stay in daytime. I see actors jumping ship for other things. They are very careful what they say so they don’t offend fans. Anyone who doesn’t see this is not realistic. Some actors leave because the industry may only be around another five years or so. They plan elsewhere for future. I find… Read more »

Well said. And viewers wonder why some actors refuse to engage in social media – why would you want to when you are crucified? Over the past 30 years people has actually been very reserved with fan interaction. Now that he does share an opinion he is being slammed.

I think for the fans, it would be better to get PR back for a week to do a death scene, complete with flashbacks of Bo/Hope, than go with the current strategy. So many couples have been separeted for years. It just seems sad that Hope is not willing to do the same. Recast is better than the current plot. Hope/Aiden will never be a supercouple to DAYS fans. (Unless it is after Bo’s death)

My guess is that he is in talks with Days and he got in trouble for tweeting about it. it will be a surprise when he shows up. I myself.. really don’t care if he ever comes back.. also Home and her new man are soooo boring.. Just a waste of talent with no storyline..

Although I am sure Peter is enjoying this time with his daughter, I also suspect the response by fans to the Hope-Aiden pairing is tugging at Peter. Just goes to show you “the show must go on”! The fans fell in love with Bo and Hope years ago, but now they can also fall in love with Hope and Aiden. (Remember Mickey and Maggie? Now it is Maggie and Victor!) One man’s trash is another’s treasure. Even if Hope-Aiden don’t get as much scree time (or storyline) as younger couples on the show, there is an actor out there who… Read more »

Having Bo (Peter) come back only to die was wrong wrong wrong! Days you messed up by not finding a way to keep him. My husband has watched the show with me and is now very sad! Yes, it’s just a show but honestly I can’t begin to tell you how excited I was to find out Bo was coming back. Days should have done EVERYTHING to keep him! I won’t watch the show ever again and so say all my friends. It reminds me of General Hospital when Genie Frances left and ruined that beautiful love story! YES I… Read more »

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
