Steve Burton Joins the Cast of ‘Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem’

Photo: JPI

As has been speculated, Daytime Emmy-winner and longtime favorite, Steve Burton (Ex-Jason, GH, Ex-Dylan, Y&R) has boarded the upcoming 2nd chapter of the Peacock streaming series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem.

Soap Opera Digest confirmed the news on Friday, followed by Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati who tweeted,We’re BEYOND excited about this news! #BeyondSalem #Days #SteveBurton”

Burton actually appeared on DAYS early in his career back in 1988 the role of Harris Michaels.

No word yet on what role Burton will play on the upcoming limited-series.

Look for Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem to stream beginning on July 11th with five new episodes through July 15th.

The Peacock streamer is currently taping at DAYS’ Burbank Studios.

The addition of Burton, along with returning Salem faves, Kristian Alfonso (Hope) and Peter Reckell (Bo), should spike the series popularity even more in its second iteration.

So, looking forward to seeing Steve on Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem? What role do you think he will play? Comment below.

Since he left GH I’ve been wanting Days to snatch him up as the Peter DeMira recast! Steve world be epic in that role!

Days continues to always keep things fresh….
Looking forward to whatever role or appearance his has on Salem.
I was a fan of his on y n r but don’t follow GH. So nice to see him pop up on my next fave soap!

I think Steve is really a very selfish person. Look what he did to GH.The show had to be rewritten to accomodate his exit and actors as a result had to adapt to previously unwritten storylines for them. It was also really bad form to try and get out of being vaccinated because of his health and religion.I used to be a fan but no more. I won’t watch the new Beyond Salem if it means having to be subjected to looking at his face and his bad acting.

Meh. I don’t think much had to be re-written; it was pretty clear who was and who was not going to follow the vaccine mandate, and it is clear (to me) that Steve Burton and Ingo Rademacher both tried to fight prior to the deadline. And, I am sure TPTB knew both Burton and Rademacher wouldn’t prove their case prior to the deadline, so they had the time to write their exits.

Nothing was going on with Jax story-wise, so his quick departure did not impact any long term storylines. The added benefit of his departure is that Portia & Curtis now have a lovely home. As for Jason, the months leading up to his departure saw so many twists and turns for the character. The surprisingly popular pairing of Jason & Britt was cut short to set up a rewrite of “the never ending love of Carly & Jason”. This culminated in a wedding ceremony and wedding night interrupted by Sonny’s “return from the dead”. If this had truly been a… Read more »

Everybody has the right to their own choice. If anything, General Hospital shouldn’t have given him the ultimatum. It’s not selfish. Everybody should have the right to choose if they take the vaccine or not. It’s the right choice for some people, but for others it’s not.

Here we go again…
Yes he has a choice, but you also have to accept that Disney-ABC has a choice to decide the safety parameters for their workspaces.

And I have the right to go to work and not worry about idiots who won’t get vaccinated giving me a deadly virus. It’s called living in a society and public policy. We’re not talking about cutting your hair or wearing a tie, which have no effect on me. It most definitely is selfish. But everyone knows that already. And FWIW, GH is doing just fine without both of them.

Satan

Doing just fine? Really, because I haven’t seen GH in months… Just some lame “Zombie Parasite Nina That Ate Port Charles” horror movie running every day in its place.

What channel is GH on now?

Thats true Harry, Nina has rejuvenated the character of Sonny and the two of them seem to be having fun.

Is “rejuvenated” a synonym for “castrated” now?

Satan
Guest
Satan

She’s like the new Frodd & Whiny Heiny combined into one. Being wedged into too many storylines. Everyone being written out of character to accommodate this stupidity. Backstories that make ZERO sense (like Willow being her kid??) Never liked Nina 1.0 at all. The current version was OK when she was with Val the Bastard and thought Sasha was her kid. But ever since the Tricky Dick Nixon Falls thing, she’s become intolerable, and somebody needs to put a stop to this dragonshit already. Which is why I hope Jason returns to Port Charles, once his 5 day side trip… Read more »

Nah…. she’ll end up in Hell eventually… but we aren’t in any hurry to have her down here.

I think Jason will return, save Sonny’s ass BUT they will be at odds because of Sonny’s choices since Jason was gone and there will be obvious tension for awhile. Jason will side with Michael. Jason and Britt will rekindle their relationship, Carly will be jealous but will lean on Drew.

Brenda

Sonny doesn’t need saving he is doing okay without Jason and frankly if I had to choose I will choose Sonny every time so don’t forget Sonny taught Jason every thing he knows.

Since the vaccine does not even work because most that got covid were vaccinated. He made the choice that was right and would have endangered anyone’s heamth.

Kat

No we are talking about a virus that people get even with 4 shots I’m not sure Steve, whom has REAL antibodies, is threat to anyone‍♂️

rose
Guest
rose

Todd…You are correct…Steve and Ingo rights to go unvaxed. But it comes with consequences. As another actor I wouldn’t want to act opposite them, let alone kiss them. Does anyone know if either got covid? Unlike flus and colds with visible sneezes and coughs covid is invisible. So best those unvaxed keep away from other people at least out of curtesy to others. But way too late for this after loosening restrictions, watching baseball games on tv, etc. The more vulnerable are on their own. Everyone for themselves.

I agree, Greg. And I don’t miss Jason at all.

Timmm

Gregory, if Mr. Burton worked at Amazon and made this choice it would be a non-issue. People have the right to choose. I think he should have taken the VAX but its Steve’s decision, not yours or mine.

I agree with you whole heartily.

Kat

Yea he could be like Kamala Harris and get 4 shots and still covid and spread it! Oh wait!! No he couldn’t!! He’s had covid and has more antibodies than her
Without taking ANY shot!! He’s not the selfish one here!!

They do if they want to be on the air on 4/2/23 or anytime after that.

GH is NOT going to survive if it becomes the Parasite Nina & FrAustin Manning-Holt (or whatever his 666th version of the same character is called) show. The post 2012 Valentini regime characters will NEVER carry this show. Except to doom, destruction, and cancellation. GH right now is looking about as bad as it did right before the Spencers showed up in 1978, and right before the introduction of Sonny & the return of Luke & Laura in 1993. Nobody talks about the Eckerts or Casey the Alien as classic GH characters. Nobody will ever say that about Nina or… Read more »

They don’t need Jason; the canvas is much improved since his exit. And considering I don’t see him following the vaccine mandate, I don’t see him returning to the soap.

Steve joining is no big deal–
It’s not a career move-
Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem is a limited series.
It will be a fleeting moment.
Dragging Steve in is a / doggie in the window /
move– ‘he be wagging his tail’ lol
A limited series is just that- limited.

Timmm

SuOOO, I agree with you, its stunt casting, a small job then Steve either goes back to GH or Y&R. I pick GH because he and Britt were really good together. Jason and Sam was one big sleeping pill!

Hi Timmm– hope you’re doing well-
ABC and CBS– Don’t both require all to be vaccinated?
Steve’s refusal to roll up his sleeve is killing his career.

Satan

Being immortal & in Hell, I haven’t kept track of such things, but… aren’t all the mandates lifted by now?

I was under the impression that most of the mortal governments up there were pretending the pandemic was “over” and that the corporations lifted their own mandates, once the governments did.

ReRon Carlivati is “beyond excited” about writing for the guy he couldn’t wait to throw under the bus in 2012.

Yeah… color me a little suspicious on that one….

Well, since this is just a 5 day gig, let’s hope Steve gets back to his REAL job after this is done.

Steve has the right to do what he wants with his body we all do the vaccine does not prevent you from getting covid he’s a great actor he has history with General Hospital he belongs there the shows not the same without him the mandates have been lifted so hopefully Steve has a future with General Hospital as Jason Morgan that’s where the fans want to see him

I agree Tammy
Everyone has a right to decide what is good for their own body and the government does not have the right to demand we do something we don’t believe in!!!

I’m more excited about seeing Bo and Hope,and finding out how Bo is still alive.

I’d forgotten that Beyond Salem exists in an alternate universe,where Kristen is still played by Eileen Davidson,so that may explain why Bo is alive.

Satan

There are some rumors going around Hell that are even more interesting…. and that would be the appearance of Megan Hathaway in this new mini-series. Now this is going back a long way… Megan was another one of Stefano’s long lost illegitimate children. She dated Bo as a teenager (long before she knew Stefano was her daddy) and never quite got over him. So Larry Welch used her to get between Bo & Hope back in the day, and Larry – who had tricked Hope into marriage in order to get her inheritance arranged for some sort of electrocution accident… Read more »

Wish ABC would try this with One Life to Live.

It would be a good indication of how many fans are still around.

Good for Steve. I quit watching GH regularly shortly after Steve and Ingo left. Now when I tune it in from time to time it’s just awful. The show has really declined rapidly and I would not be surprised in the least if it doesn’t get cancelled. Could we get like a daytime reboot on ABC of Dark Shadows? Now that would be interesting.

Yuck, never liked his robotic performances. Hated his attitude about spreading disease based upon his ego and his obnoxious ideas.
