Now this sounds a bit wackadoodle but yet a lot of fun for fans of Days of our Lives! TV Guide is reporting that some of your favorite Salemites go to the movies ( in a very imaginative way) on the upcoming July 4th holiday episode, which is time out of time episode!

According to TVG here is what we know, “Bad rain will hit Salem forcing the young ones — Gabi, Chad, Abigail, Kinsey and Melanie — to stay indoors and watch this year’s Oscar DVDs at the Brady Pub.  While trying to decide which flicks to choose, Melanie imagines herself and Bo in True Grit, while Chad fantasizes himself in The Social Network and Gabi goes for The King’s Speech. Kinsey votes for The Fighter with Brady as Mark Wahlberg’s character and the gals — from Nicole and Melanie to sassy Nurse Maxine — as the mouthy, trashtastic Eklund sisters. And look for Emmy winner Judi Evans (Adrienne) in the badass mom role that won an Oscar for Melissa Leo. The Days take-off we most can’t wait to see? That’d be Swan Lake, with the great Kristian Alfonso (Hope) in all her psychotic Natalie Portman glory.”

So what do you think soapers? Who are you looking forward to seeing the most in the special episode? Let us know!

    This could go horribly wrong. I wish DAYS would focus on the basics. GL did a brilliant anniversary show but can’t imagine DAYS writers could pull this off.

    After reading your description of it I am super stoked! I hope everyone takes it for what it is and enjoys it as much as the cast must have enjoyed filming it. Way to go Corday for this one.

    I saw the 4th of July Days Special. It was a nice change of pace for the fans and the actors involved. I had not seen ANY of the movies being spoofed, but I knew enough about the movies to enjoy the skits anyway. Hope Days will do more specials in the future.

    Many years ago, Days of Our Lives did a variety show as a fundraiser for University Hospital. The idea came from Bill Hayes (Doug Williams). So this is nothing new to Days. I hope they will do a variety show in the future. Let’s see what other talents the Days cast have to offer (i.e. singing, dancing, magic, etc.)

REPORT: Days of our Lives Targets September Production Restart

Looks like Salem and Days of our Lives will be back in full-swing come September, if the target date holds true as revealed today by Deadline.

According to their sources, Corday Productions, who produces the long-running NBC daytime drama, sent out an email to cast members on Thursday notifying them of their intent to resume production come September 1st.

However for this article; reps for NBC, Corday and Sony Pictures TV declined to comment.

Days of our Lives has had enough shows banked through early October of this year, so was not pressed to get back into production amidst the coronavirus pandemic as much as CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful (which went back into production a week and half ago), and The Young and the Restless and General Hospital who are targeting a mid-July restart.

All three of the shows, except for DAYS ran out of original episodes to air, back at the end of April of this year.

So, excited to hear that their may be plans ahead come fall for DAYS to come to back and tape new episodes? Comment below.

DAYS Elani Wedding (Photos): What Did You Think Of The Nuptials?

This week on Days of our Lives saw the first African-American couple to be married on-screen in the 54-year history of Days of our Lives.  Now while Lani (Sal Stowers) and Eli (Lamon Archey) tried before in a previous ceremony, this one did the job … they are now officially husband and wife!

The ceremony was attended by Lani’s dad, Abe Reynolds (James Reynolds), her mother Tamara Price (Marily McCoo), Billy Davis Jr.  as a former FBI mentor to Eli, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) – it was her restaurant after all and she is Eli’s grandmother.  Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) presided over the ceremony.

There were some unwelcome guests at the ceremony as well; leading the bride to question, are we doomed?  Why does this keep happening to us everytime we tried to get hitch!

However, fate was on Lani and Eli’s side this day, as even Gabi (Camila Banus) with her antics, and a shocking arrival from Vivian Alamain (Louise Sorel), couldn’t rain on this day.  Vivian even tried to shoot the bride, but thanks to Rafe (Galen Gering) saving the day and armed with news that her son Stefan (Brandon Barash) could be alive; he informs Viv firmly that she would be killing someone for the wrong reason, even though Vivian is in disbelief that her son is alive.  Next, she is whisked out of the ceremony.

Lani still feeling rattled by all the wedding interruptus gets a sign she should marry the man she loves; when her mother, who needed to go lie down earlier, as she was feeling faint, was able to show back up just in time to restart the wedding.


During the ceremony, Eli mentions the loss of little David Abraham and the struggles they went through, but how in the end it brought then closer together.  After the rings are exchanged and they are pronounced man and wife, the newlyweds “jump the broom” a wonderful tradition and a symbol of African-American heritage, where the sweeping of the broom signifies sweeping away all the bad energy.  After they sweep the broom, Elani jumps over it.

In a behind-the-scenes of the wedding segment released this week on the DOOL app, Sal Stowers and Lamon Archey talk about the inclusion of the ‘jump the broom’ moment in the episode, and how they suggested the idea to DAYS Co-EP Albert Alaar, and how  it was written into the episode.

So, what did you think of Lani and Eli’s wedding? Did you enjoy it? Let us know via the comment section below, but first check out this wedding photo gallery of the big day!
