There are several actors on that cover who should be back for the 50th anniversary, and at the top of the list are Stephen Nichols, Charles Shaughnessy, Patsy Pease and Peter Reckell, if only for a short time. I know money is tight but they’ve got to let go of some of the newer characters who aren’t working out and use that money to hire back these actors, even if it’s only for a brief arc. A show where Serena, Melanie, Paige and Ben are front burner is a show that will remain fourth out of four soaps in the… Read more »

What about Wayne Northrop, Beth? My grandmother loved him. She always compares him to the present Roman, Josh Taylor, whom she says could never fill Wayne’s shoes….LOL. You and I must think alike….those last four characters you’ve mentioned have not arisen any interest, nor have gotten a WOW out of me. They are the most blah, insipid, and lackluster characters on the soap, which is dumbfounding, since I loved both of them previously. What happened? Other than having sex with two idiots, what do they do? One goes around, obsessively trying to switch elephant statues…the other, with the non-descript, alien… Read more »

Josh Taylor will always be Chris K. to me…he might have made a fine Roman but tptb never gave him the material to shine and make the character his own!!!

Why aren’t Doug and Julie on that cover? They were Days’ first super couple?

Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

They shouldve been up there…Doug and Julie were the hottest couple of the 70s and kept the ratings high for many years plus are the only soap couple ever featured on the cover of Time Magazine…what a slap in the face to exclude them!!!

I completely agree with your selections about those who should return — I would include anyone on the cover they can possibly get.

In addition, I sadly agree with you about those who need to take a step back from featured story lines. Those story lines are also wasting excellent actors who should be given newer, more interesting stories.

I’m glad you said “anyone on the cover they can possibly get” because I left out Matthew Ashford and didn’t mean to do that. I love Jack Devereaux and miss Jack and Jen so much! It actually pains me to say this, but unless DOOL can figure out what to do with Kassie DePaiva other than having Eve have sex with her daughter’s boyfriend and constantly talk about Paige, I don’t know that KDP is being used the best way she could be. She’s a talented actress and has a huge fan following but this version of Eve is a… Read more »

Kassie DePaiva was wasted from the getgo I thought she had some spark with Greg Vaughan at the very beginning… but they nixed that the only way I see this… is if… they brought back Peter Blake… and he hooked up with Eve… and therein Eve could reign… if she could get past Stefano…. I could just spit… at Jennifers histrionics… JJ is a grown man… ship Paige off to Stanford.. and either WRITE Eve and JJ unlike Ava and Morgan (GH)… or cast a man for her it’s a danged shame DOOL has nosedived so fast in the space… Read more »

Kassie DePaiva is most definitely being underutilized. I’m very disappointed at the story line she has been given. In addition, I find the way the character, Jennifer, is being written as an irritating helicopter parent. I hope both KD and MR get better stories soon.

I am trying to understand why would days and Soap digest allow this special anniversary edtion book be release in March and not at the very end of October are the first week of November, I know it is their 50th year being on air but it should have been relase around the time I stated it being release later in the year would have had special meaning to days and it devoted fans more at the time 50th is due. I may be wrong but this may be days last year come shotly after making 50th it is something… Read more »

Sandy, I would suspect it’s a money/marketing thing. DAYS is very suave about merchandising the show: coffee table books, t-shirts, etc. It seems to me that since the article said this was the first of many other things to come that they’re trying to spread out the 50th anniversary stuff to build up the hoopla about the show. Not sure starting this early is going to do it. By the time the actual anniversary arrived in November, the SOD mag is going to seem like old, old news that’s missing half a year of history. I would have liked something… Read more »

Lexie should come back as a ghost for Abe – Celeste should make it happen with her cards!
Sami, her kids, Carrie & Austin, Belle & Sean, get Mimi out of that coma! HA! Definitely all the living Brady’s as well as Brandon Walker but before all that please kill off the character of Melanie as she is without a doubt the biggest blemish on the history of Days Of Our Lives – even worse than those gemini twins!!!!!

Oh man I could totally get behind Lexie coming back to visit Abe and having Celeste bring her back! Great idea!!!

I definitely think that Carrie and Austin should visit.

I Love Melanie and I agree about the children they should also bring Lexie and Jack back from the dead they’ve done it before they can do it again I hope they bring E.J. back ( James Scott) no replacement because he’s perfect and Sami and E.J.s kids I Love Little Johnny he’s such a Wonderful actor . They should also bring back Phillip

I will buy this issue !

sidebar : stat : SOS : Melanie is ruining Eric Martsolf’ Brady !

oy! WHY? must she constantly tilt her head cutesy and play with her hair…

as if needing acknowledgment that she’s that good in bed… yesterday’ ep

I gagged when she told Brady…. Melanie is never boring ! huh? she’s as bad as Daniel

Melanie is the worst character on the show. I hate that Brady is wasted on her when he’s got hotties like Teresa and Kristen to deal with.

I stopped watching Days ten years ago. Sorry, none of those ppl on the cover will get me to tune back in. It’s about the writing, and not the character returns for me. The soap needs more compelling storylines. Where is the spectator? Who is in charge of the ISA these days? Where is the next Stefano Dimero? Answer these questions and I will definitely tune back in.

The show needs another Stephano type super villian…ive made suggestions in the past…unfortunately tptb dont listen much to the fans!!!

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

I really love your idea of Stephen Schnetzer, ex- cass winthrop from Another World to show up in DAYS for the reason you stated

if not a villian… a business tycoon… so Kayla would accept him

plus as a love interest for Mary Beth Evans’ Kayla

Definitely want to see Stephen Nichols, Wayne Northrop, Patsy Pease along with Charles Shaughnessy, Crystal Chappell, Lisa Rinna, Christy Clark, and Peter Reckell.

Along with the actors, who’ve played Vivian (Louise Sorel), and Lawrence (Michael Sabatino).

Good news is that Peter Reckell and Stephen Nicols are confirmed for the reunion.

Matt Ashford, to finally and permanently unite Jack & Jennifer. Then Stephen Nichols and Peter Reckell. I’d love to see an umbrella story with the classic supercouples–Steve and Bo trying to rescue Jack, or something similar. Sadly, I doubt the show will do this.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I wish the same but unfortunately you are most likely right…they probably wont do it!!!

wendy
Guest

A story that would have had Steve/Bo leave their families to rescue Jack and tie everything together with the ISA, Shane and Kim… That means the writing would need history. So fitting for a 50 right?

jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Denise Alexander as Susan Martin…and let her be Annes mother…Stephan Schnetzer as Steve Olsen…Tina Andrews as Valerie Grant…Corinne Conley as Phylis Anderson…Patti Weaver as Trish…Gloria Loring as Liz…too many to list…bring back 50 former stars for the shows 50th…

So the thing Days is best known for and is shown on the cover of the anniversary issue is the supercouples…something Corday and crew not only refuse to revisit, but have seemingly gone out of their way to destroy. The male part of all the couples (save John) has all but abandoned their wife. Couples aren’t written for any longer, only short term hookups and tawdry sex. There’s no romance left in Salem.

I’d like to see some with the last name of HORTON back on the show. Where’s Mike? Jeremy? Bill? Is Tommy dead? It doesn’t seem that the Hortons ever had boys to carry on the family name; not too many to choose from. And what about David and Scotty, Julie’s son and grandson. Julie’s brother? Maggie’s girls? Heck, I’d love to see Doug and Julie back more often! How about all the old entertainers from DOUG’S PLACE come back for a hospital fund-raiser? Jerrie, Trish, Robert, Liz…I’m sure I’m missing some. I really do hope they get their act together… Read more »

I loved and miss all those characters too-some ive listed like Julies brother Steve Olsen played by Stephan Schnezter ex Cass of Another World-i remember when he sold fake antiques to Julie and left town when Mary Anderson rejected his marriage purposal…also, Doug had a child named little Dougie with surrogate Rebecca North who was little Hopes nanny but i dont recall what happened to him or if the character is still alive!!!

I would love to see Jack, Bo, Sami,. E.J.. Steve, Shane, Kimberly, Chloe, Roman and lesser known Greta. I started watching Days in 1990 (their 25th anniversary year) and hope the celebrations planned are even more spectacular. I have a special nostalgic place in my heart for that whole year on Days- the Cruise of Deception, the 25th anniversary, Jack and Jennifer’s budding romance – and can’t wait to see what they do for the 50th. Can’t believe I’ve been watching for 25 years. Hope to watch 25 more!

Hepburn and Tracy, Bogart and Baccalaureate, Sweeney and Scott; days of our lives had the best and most believable love couple it has been my limited pleasure to observe in a long time. Seldom does a couple pair up and make the love they portray so real and wonderful to watch. To allow them to quit the show and leave the fans who fell in love with both of them is a crime. We loved them, worried about them, and probably for the first time in our lives were able to feel and see what it was like to experience… Read more »

Days of our Lives Returns To Production After Temporary Halt Amid COVID-19

UPDATED:  According to Deadline  the cast and crew of NBC’s Days of our Lives will actually be returning tomorrow, October 20th to begin taping ahead of schedule after a positive Covid-19 test shut production down originally scheduled for two weeks.

The outlet cited, “Following a thorough investigation including contact tracing, quarantines, testing, and a deep cleaning of the studio, the health and safety experts at Days of our Lives have determined that it was safe to return to production before the end of the two-week period. As a result, the show will be back on set tomorrow Oct 20.”

The word of the early return initially got out Monday, although at that time unconfirmed by the show, apparently, via a posting by Lauren Koslow on her Instagram account where she is pictured in a Kate Roberts outfit in her dressing room.

Koslow shared: “Stepping into Monday in alice + olivia black velvet,” She also tagged the post #dressingroomselfie and the words. “Stay strong.”

She also added a quote from poet Maya Angelou: “Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”

So, happy to hear it seems like DAYS is back … once again? Comment below!

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 . #❤️ #😘”

 

So, are you sad that Kristina will be gone for DAYS on-screen after today?  Share your thoughts om this, her final airdate, via the comment section below.
