Andre DiMera is here to stay, or who knows? Maybe Tony will return to? Good news for Days of our Lives fans of Thaao Penghlis (Andre).  The actor revealed on his Twitter account that he is indeed sticking around Salem!

Thaao revealed: “My friends I have signed on DOOL for another 2 years. Thank u 4 being part of this wonderful & continuing experience I call home.” Back in February of this year, DAYS received a one year pick-up by NBC, with an option for an additional year.

On current episodes of DAYS, Andre is back in action as his nefarious plan to bring in a doppelganger Aiden to finish the job of killing Hope was revealed on Monday’s episode of the NBC sudser.  

So, are you happy to hear there will be more Thaao on DAYS?  Do you hope Andre continues his reign of terror? Would you like to Tony to come back from the dead to? Comment below!

It would be nice to have Tony and Anna back too but sometimes long absent characters seem to loose their appeal when writers don’t seem to know what to do with them-like Shaun and Belle and Philip-still wish Belle was staying!!!

Hi Jimmy!

Someone on Twitter asked Thaao when we will see Tony and his reply was “Soon.”

I’m sure we’ll see Anna too. LeAnne Hunley was listed as if she was a current cast member on the DAYS 50th anniversary party guest list.

Great news! Having Thaao on my screen as Andre or Tony is always a good thing!

It’s nice to know that at least some of the core cast is staying put. I only wish NBC and Sony could have extended the same courtesy to Martha Madison (Belle) and Brandon Beemer (Shawn-Douglas).

Great. Now let’s see him on-screen. It’s no good to have him signed to a contract if writers don’t write story for him. We need Thaao and Andre back in Salem!

GREAT… He is my favorite as Tony or Andre..⏳⏳⏳

The character of Andre just doesn’t work. He is just a lunatic for no reason. Evil for the sake of evil. When a character has ZERO motivation for their actions, it is just a pointless waste of time. This is a man who violently stabbed and murdered several women in the 80’s. He is a serial killer. Serial killers don’t get full pardons, no matter how much money or brain tumours they have. Then, Andre infamously engineered the faux murder story of 2003-2004 where he performed many violent atrocities. If Tony was alive, and came back, and banished Andre once and for all, that might be worth watching. But at this point, I don’t really feel Tony or Andre are viable or relevant characters. Tony only ever clicked with Anna, and they had a sophisticated, witty romance full of love and passion. I’d tune in for that reunion. otherwise, my reaction to this news is just….blah.

I think they are basically trying to have him replace Stefano for stories.

True and it’s not working.

If this is true, he needs to be in the DiMera house. That whole thing with the taxes and Chad buying the house and kicking Andre out was not good.

And Andre needs to be out of prison and on our screens!

Patrick

i’m coming from the point… of any way… I can enjoy some one some thing… connected to The DiMira Dynasty…. i’m in

i’m surprised… that DAYS wants “Andre” to remain…. I was hoping some how… Andre would be connected to coercing a minor to rape another minor…. ugh! it’s sick

so that Chase would be redeemed

OK … already

I had high hopes that Daniel Cosgrove would return as Peter BLake… and that Chase would also be a DiMera…. that kid along with DC ACT

I would have preferred that DAYS spend their monies on a strong male lead , to return Peter Blake to Salem…. can we say Michael Muhney

congrats to Thaao Penghis character acting… he’s always interesting…

Andre and Chad do have a certain rapport that works

They won’t even be on past next year.. They’re not fooling me handing out two year contracts

Yeah I don’t think they can survive another year with these horrible ratings and stories.

DOOL is just covering its bets with those two year contracts.

Personally I do not care for the Cartoonish Villian character of Andre. I was glad he was sent off to Prison and has been off the canvas.
Right now, I’m not crazy about the show’s plotlines – and honestly, the explanation of Aiden having an “evil twin” has been so done to death on soaps, although it’s been acted nicely and convincingly.
I miss the storylines that involved Will, Sonny, Sami and EJ – and I think the writers could come up with some compelling tales, but for right now, meh – show doesn’t thrill me.

I agree, Andre is goofy. Just because he is a DiMeria doesn’t mean he can carry the legacy.

Patrick
Patrick

no.. he isn’t

I ‘ve always rooted for the “underdog” if you will… and the best part of this serial

how clever all whole clan of DiMera mystify

god… isn’t Lexie missed
wouldn’t it be something… just to see how Peter Blake is doing
will Kristen ever grace Salem’ites

could Kassie DePaiva be accepted as the new Kristen DiMera… just begging the behind the scenes to bring her back

imagine… how much fun.. Eve would be
with Rafe
with Deimos
with Justin
with Eduardo

let Eve and Anna ( the divine LeAnne Hunley) become fast friends and reign
supreme

@Jim, this is where you and I differ. I just love Andre. He makes even the most boring scenes enjoyable. I would like nothing better than to see Andre and Victor join up against Demios. Watching those two experts take down Demios would be priceless.

I am all for Tony coming back, but still want the next return to be Kassie Depaiva as Eve Donavan!!!!

Days has become total garbage. With the way the ratings are sliding, it would be a miracle if it’s still on the air two years from now. Obviously, multi-year contracts like that can be bought out. It happens all the time in other businesses and industries, including sports.

I don’t think it will go past the year myself, they had their chance to keep the ratings up and have great stories but they brought back Dena Higley. Ugh.

blake

I don’t care for Andre and just because he is a DiMeria doesn’t mean he should keep the legacy going. He’s a cartoon villain.

They keep Andre on, even the horrible actress playing Ciara yet they fire Martha Madison (Belle) who was the best thing they’ve had in a long time. It’s no wonder their ratings are horrible again.

Mo
Mo

You are so right about them keeping the gal who plays Ciara yet, they have let other actors who are so much better go. I don’t get it. Can’t they see this gal can’t act?!!!! Her scenes are painful to watch, when I don’t fast forward.

Amy

I’ve been patient with the actress playing Ciara but enough is enough. When will the producers understand that she is not right for the part?

Love Thaao, he is a Classic soap opera villain and the only one who can inherit Joe mascolo’s position.

Thaao is a great actor and glad to have him on days because he brings depth to his characters, but with that said, I am not a big fan of the Andre character in that he just seems pure evil. Stephano was a more complex figure and that is what made him endearing. He had that warm, charming even love able side with his family, but then he could be ruthless in his business dealings. Since Thaoo has strong acting ability and can portray a range of emotions they should write his characters to show more dimensions to make the characters more attractive and appealing. Maybe Tony was like that. I don’t know enough about Tony – have not seen him enough, but the little I did see he had a wit and some charm whereas the little I have seen of Andre he does not seem to have that, so it may be better if they bring back the Tony character and fade out Andre. Thaao certainly adds a lot to Days now it is up to the writers to develop the character(s) and the storylinees to showcase Thaao’s immense talent.

here we go again. Guess he will return to say he brainwashed Chase, and Aiden and Chase can stay. Tony fine, Anna even better, Andre no thanks. been there done that. I like watching Aiden DC can act rings around most of the cast. I am looking forward to seeing Chase see his dad.

Jim Preston

Yes but only if another actor plays Chase….I guess….frankly, to each his own but this show lately bores me to tears.

@Janet, I more than disagree. I just love maniacal Andre; he is so much fun. Now if only the writers would create another “Bart”.

DAYS Camila Banus Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

The angst, drama, tears, and revenge continued this week on NBC’s Days of our Lives with the stirring portrayal of grief-stricken young woman; who is hell-bent on making everyone around her suffer for the loss of her husband in a fatal gunshot that left him brain-dead.  Of course, we are talking about Camila Banus (Gabi), who turned in bravura performances this week, and there are four moments that really stood out to us that showed the range and depth of Banus’ work.

In the hospital chapel, Gabi talks to God and prayed to him that he will make Stefan (Brandon Barash) whole again.  There has been one through-line for Gabi throughout her life – she seems to have everything and everyone she loves taken away from her, even if some of the decisions she makes along the way have a cause/effect that leaves her feeling completely alone, and ready to lash out at the world for what has transpired.  In the chapel, she asks God through her tears, “Why do you hate me so much?” Gabi tells God she went to Sunday school as a little girl and still she has lost God and her husband.  Gabi cannot even get herself to look at Stefan’s things when Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey) try to share them with her as she slaps the envelope out of their hands.

In another heartbreaking scene, Gabi is in the bed she shared with Stefan. She flashes to kissing the love of her life.  Next, Gabi breaks down in tears, and throws things around in the bedroom before slumping to the floor.  She sobs and says, “Why did you give me your heart, Stefan, if you weren’t going to be around to love me with it?”

Later, Gabi talks to Stefan in her sleep as she hugs his pillow. When she wakes up she cries as Kate (Lauren Koslow) arrives to check on her.  Gabi lets Kate have it, and at first blames Kate for the whole mess with Stefan.  Gabi lashes out that if it wasn’t for Stefan getting in between Kate’s feud with Vivian (Robin Strasser), he’d still be alive.  Kate knows Gabi is in despair and hugs her.  Then, Gabi channels her angst towards Lani (Sal Stowers) promising to make her suffer.

And on Friday’s episode, Gabi is ramping us some sort of revenge plan promising Stefan his legacy will live on. Earlier, Gabi was present with Lani and Eli (Lamon Archey) when Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) informed them that Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) will need a special pacemaker, even after receiving Stefan’s heart. Somehow, Gabi found a file on Visionary Bionics, the company that makes this unique medical device, and recalls Kayla saying she’ll do the procedure on Julie tomorrow. Gabi makes a mysterious call.  What is she about to do?

TODAY: Ron Carlivati’s Dad Appears on DAYS

Be on the lookout on Friday’s October 18th episode of Days of our Lives for one of the shows “superfans” who pops in Salem.  That is when the father of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati appears as an extra on the NBC soap opera.

Carlivati Sr., who is very proud of his son, looks to be donning a medical lab coat as a physician in a photo shared on social media along with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), one of Salem’s most busy and most respected doctors.

Ron told SOD about his dad appearing on the show that he writes: “It’s funny because I’ve been in soaps for over 20 years and my dad would watch to see my name on the credits but rarely get into the show. Somehow, I don’t know what clicked in for him, he’s obsessed with Days of our Lives. He does not miss it.”

As to how his dad became an extra for the day: “We were at the studio and Albert Alarr, our co-executive producer, comes up and meets my parents and turns to my dad and says, ‘We’re gonna be shooting some scenes in the hospital next. How would you like to be in them?’ I honestly had no idea this was coming. I also fainted.”
