Days of our Lives turns 50 years young in November of this year, and as the big 5-o approaches many fans are hoping some beloved favorites will return in time for the celebration or make an appearance in story, somehow.

One of the biggest names ever associated with DAYS is Peter Reckell who played anti-hero Bo Brady for decades.

While discussions have been on and off for a few years now, and Peter has kept his ardent fans updated all the time on Twitter as to the status of discussions or negotiations with the show, this weekend he tweeted what looks to be a very positive step in the right direction for Reckell’s Bo to come to Salem for the 50th anniversary of the show.

Peter tweeted: “We are talking again, trying to work out a deal for the 50! I need your love, support, and positive energy!!!”

So, how much would it mean to you if Peter was to come back to Days of our Lives in time for the 50th anniversary?  Do you think a deal will be worked out this time?  Share your thoughts below!

At this point i no longer care if Bo returns or not but at the same time it would be nice to see him and many other vets return for short visits and story arcs for the shows 50th…cant work it out with PR then get John Stamos…lol

The writers have sort of let us forget about Bo. It would be good to see him back in Salem. I did not watch DAYS during the heyday of Bo and Hope but I know they were “the thing.” If Bo does come back, he would stay if in the person of Reckell or another actor. Or supply a good enough short-term story that allows Hope and the many fans some closure.

Boy, does Reckell look good!

I recomend if a deal does not work out with Peter Reckcel brief return as Bo Brady, why not to and reach out to Bo Brady number Robert K. Kelly who replace Peter from 1992-1995. They are plenty of old footage with him as Bo since he was a contract player those years as Bo and with Bo number two they could try and reach out to Lisa Rinnina (Billie Reed) and Chrystal Chapman (Dr Carly Manning) Robert K. Kelly as Bo with those two ladies had some good stories with them as well as with K Alphonse (Hope Brady)… Read more »

I actually liked RKK better as Bo…so i wouldnt mind him making a guest appearance!!!

As much as I loved when RKK played BO, I don’t see him being asked back, if the “Deal” with Peter doesn’t work out. Peter is DAYS history. RKK filled in the blanks for 3 years. Peter will either be wiling to make this deal happen, or if not, no need, leave Bo out of it.

If GH couldn’t afford Stamos I don’t think Days could even afford his autograph at a Full House convention. But yeah, I agree that whether or not PR returns isn’t going to make or break Days. Good writing is the #1 thing lacking over there and the only thing that will save the show.

I mention Stamos jokingly because of the problems he had with GH over that shows 50th…lol…Good writing is Days biggest problem right now but since they tape so far in advance it will be some time before we see if new writers can fix the problem or we’ll be seeing that show’s finale ‘DAYS’!!!

There is no point in bring Bo back for a short-term stint. He’ll just screw up Hope’s life the way Robin screws up Patrick’s on GH every time she “honors” the show with her presence.
I’m liking Hope with Aiden, and Bo would also screw up Ciara’s head again, and I don’t need to see any more tantrums from her! lol

Robin doesn’t screw up Patrick life that is on the writers not working with the actress schedule like they do others who weren’t even from GH, if truth be told the writer tried to ruin Robin to move Patrick on. Robin and Kim are GH legacy not Patrick. Robin has ties to MANY GH characters. Kim stated many times she is willing to do both and if others like MoB, TG, Ro H, ME and even the new ones like BM get to do GH and other things then Kim can do both. Many of us wait for anytime the… Read more »

UMMMMM…damien..the only ratings grabber will be an Sami/EJ return..the true ratings grabber will be an Ali Sweeney return altogether…James Scott or not..Sami can return EJ’less and blow the ratings out the roof just WAITING for EJ…I like BO but it’s like a Patch return..after a month..put a PATCH on the STORY…

At this point, I would rather see RKK reprise Bo. Its so exhausting seeing these teasers about PR, and frankly, it isn’t fair to the fans!!! They should’ve had Bo presumed dead, or maybe Aiden will been have working with the Dimeras and Bo is being held against his will!! I find it hard to believe Bo would just leave Hope and Ciara. I have never bought that story.

Robert Kelker Kelly aged better; at this point bringing back Bo would only screw Hope up. If they have to – bring back Kelker Kelly

I don’t like the way Mr. Reckell seems to involve the fans in his business negotiations. He should negotiate with the show in private and then, if a deal is reached, share the good news with fans. He deliberately puts pressure on the show to meet his terms by raising fans’ expectations. That being said, it would be nice to see him on the show — but it will have to be a very smartly crafted arc. Not like GH’s Robin unsatisfactorily popping in and out. If it’s a short-term appearance, the writers need to decide the fate of the… Read more »

I could not agree with you anymore! This is not the first time he has tried to drag fans into this… I cannot believe there is a problem in the negotiations in the first place…in the hey day of Hope and Bo I see the relevance, but they have moved on, rightfully so after he left, so perhaps he’s holding out for a BIG paycheck instead of giving the fans what we deserve…closure. It’s not like when he left he was tremendously in demand…. probably not a good idea to hold the show hostage at this point…because we stopped caring… Read more »

I hear you. I felt part of that problem may have been the storyline that they gave him/them when the pulled Marlena and John a part. I would still like to have a few stronger matriarch/patriarch couples – Marlena/John, Victor/Maggie (actually Kate/ Stefano – liked them together), would like Julie/Doug as well, but they seem to only want to appear sporadically – then have other storylines and sub-storylines, relationships, etc. weave in and out of their lives. Would like models like Friday Night Lights, Cedar Cove where you have a stinger Maine couple (who like all couples have issues, but… Read more »

Well I hope management can work out a deal not only with PR but many previous stars of the show. A 50th wouldn’t be much fun it they couldn’t mine the rich history of the show with clips and guest spots. I cannot imagine Bo really has a place in Salem anymore, but it would be nice if Bo and Hope could have a proper confrontation and goodbye. The way they ushered him off the show was just sad, and PR and the character deserved better, this might be a chance to right that wrong.

Days needs to use its rich history everyDAYS and not just for its 50th, and because they have lost focus on their rich history is the main reason they remain in fourth place and loosing viewers!!!

Cathy, My pet peeve: General Hospital is NOT losing viewers!!! 1. Y&R 5,138,000 (-228,000/+71,000) 2. B&B 3,809,000 (-237,000/+79,000) 3. GH 3,242,000 (+53,000/+347,000) 4. DAYS 2,443,000 (+21,000/-302,000) GH ratings have risen 3 wks in a row: New ratings here show they’re Up 53,000 from the week before and UP 347,000 from 1 yr ago! DAYS gained viewers in these latest ratings, 21,000, but down 302,000 from 1 yr ago. Not bad considering they were down 583,000 just 4 wks ago! I predict next weeks ratings for Days will rise even more because of the JJ/Eve reveal, the social media buzz it… Read more »

Bo & Hope definitely need that closure, confrontation and goodbye as you stated, Mary SF. I would love to see it involve Ciara and the return of Jason Cook as Shawn D. I think the show would benefit in uniting the family, and incorporate believable and valid explanations revealed as to why Bo really left Salem, and why he must say have a proper Goodbye upon his next exit.

I think Peter Reckell is missed as “Bo Brady” on Days Of Our Lives. He certainly needed a huge break from it all. He wanted to move to Oregon and have more time to be with his wife and children. I would be happy to see him on the 50th Anniversary episodes if he wanted to come back for a limited time.

Jeremy
Guest

I’m all for a Bo return for a limited run, as well, with Peter Reckell in the role, if it all works out. It’s time that the writers put closure on the Bo & Hope relationship. It would be great if Jason Cook (Shawn D) could come back to reprise his role, too.

Ah, yes, let’s get Jason Brooks back! He was awesome as Peter. I doubt it can happen though because of the wrench he threw into holier-than-though Melissa Reeves’ marriage last time. She’s half the actor that Brooks is, but unfortunately, that uptight witch has too much history with the show, and her husband would make her quit if Jason Brooks were to return. I’d love to see Peter Reckell back too. He was never a great actor, but he and Kristian are part of the show’s heart and soul, and he was the biggest sex symbol in the show’s history.

Jeremy

Unfortunately, Jason Brooks is very unlikely to return to the role.
I’m sold on Robb Derringer as new Peter Blake, I’ve also heard the suggestion of Ted King as a possibility, too. It’s time DAYS brought Peter back via a Kristen visit!!!

Would love to see Bo back. In fact, would like to see as many vets back as possible. Always like seeing all the vets on the show. Think that is what is needed to bring some of us back to the show now. Understandably and good that they bring in some new people from time to time for new energy and change, but since the show is a bit in the doldrums right now, two lead actors (Scott, Sweeney) just left , storylines are a bit lackluster, think it is time to bring back the vets to jump start the… Read more »

I agree about seeing old family and friends…. however…I have to disagree with the John and Marlena story. I used to really like john…something happened and I just got so sick and tired of him…. I was glad when he went off the radar for a while….I think it was about negotiations….but just not into it anymore.

Get Marlena involved with someone new…

Maybe under the new writing regime it’s something that would be conceived; the perception of Bo over the past few years has been quite disgusting. I wouldn’t mind him coming back in a recurring capacity, where he pops up every now and again.

I feel like for #DAYS50 the new regime have a large task ahead of them. I’d love to see a lot of classic faces come back to the series; there are so many characters that could be ushered back to the scene, even if for a temporary multi-week stint, though some I’d love to be brought back on a permanent basis. And maybe even a few new characters and / or faces, that would be something, wouldn’t it? And maybe some characters could be written out of the series, to get rid of some dead weight!

hey Scott, I too, would love to see Shawn & Belle return to Salem, with Martha and Jason Cook, too. Along with, Christie Clark as Carrie, though, I’m not sure which Austin would be best to bring back. I’d definitely love to see Crystal Chappell return, along with Billie Reed, though I would prefer Lisa Rinna followed by Krista Allen. And, Vivian Alemain!!!

Scott (ATWT Fan)

The last time Rinna appeared as Billie it did not feel right to me; not familiar with Ms. Allen’s portrayal, either. I just know I enjoy Ms. Pinson’s acting ability and feel like she’d bring more depth to the role of the character once again if she were to return, especially as part of the Salem Police Departure, or part of a bigger storyline.

I really don’t miss Bo. I’m glad Hope has a storyline and I like her with Aiden. I wouldn’t mind Bo returning very briefly for the big 50th celebration, but only to say goodbye…and then please STAY gone. I hate this “will he/won’t he” stuff.

Why is he trying to work out a deal? You would think for a show that made him and kept him employed for 30 years, he’d happily come back for the 50th regardless of the “deal”. He is obviously demanding money and that’s fine, it’s a business but why let the fans know? I think the only time he should tweet is when he has a deal done not while negotiations are taking place!

Elite Advisors

Couldn’t agree more! He wanted out and now he’s gone….it was all about money…so if you play that game, you had better be prepared for the consequences… Hope, and the fans have moved on.

Peter R… be careful how you gamble.. and stop dragging fans into this…. we’re no longer that invested in you.

Jazz…Oh, I agree…TOTALLY!!!!! I mean…what EXACTLY is Peter Reckell’s, uh, ‘deal’ here?!?!? Is he trying to prove something????? Also, it seems to me that Mr. Reckell is arrogantly trying to use soap fans (in general or whatever) as bargaining chips or something…N-O-T COOL AT ALL!!!!! Bottom Line Here (well at least for me, anyway): At this point, I NO LONGER CARE if Peter Reckell returns to DOOL for the show’s 50th Anniversary (or whatever) in November. Nope. Don’t care. Next……….

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
