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!

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… Read more »

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

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!

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 ,… Read more »

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

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

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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 Brandon Barash On Stefan’s Resurrection: “You’ll See Some Revenge, Corporate Takeovers, Losing a Memory … Maybe Gaining of Memories”

Dr. Rolf is at it again on Days of our Lives! While Jake DiMera has met his maker, apparently his twin brother, Stefan O DiMera is coming back to life.  That sets the stage for Brandon Barash to reprise his original DAYS role.

In a brand new interview with his on-screen brother, Dan Feuerriegel (EJ) on the Days of our Lives You Tube Channel, Barash talks on what viewers can expect once Stefan is completely back in action, and how he feels about taking on the darker twin once again.

Brandon teased: “You’ll see some revenge, corporate takeovers, losing a memory … maybe gaining of memories.”  With Stefan back in the DiMera mix, look for the two brothers to not always see eye-to-eye. Barashs shared that they’ll be, “Butting heads for sure”.

Meanwhile, will Stefan and his true love, Gabi (Camila Banus) reunite once she knows he is alive? Barash weighs-in on that and more ‘burning’ questions.

You can check out the chat below.

Now, let us know, are you glad that Stefan O DiMera is back on the Salem canvas? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

BREAKING NEWS: Days of our Lives Ending Its Run on NBC, Moving to Peacock Starting in September

In a major move, Days of our Lives, the longest-running scripted series of all-time on NBC, is exiting the television network and will now be in its new home on the NBCUniversal streaming platform, Peacock.

The shift marks the end of DAYS’ nearly 57 year-run on broadcast television. Days of our Lives debuted on NBC back on November 8th, 1965.

Look for all-new episodes daily of the series to begin on Peacock starting on September 12th, along with the show’s library already available to stream for Peacock Premium subscribers.  According to a press release from Peacock, “The historic move to Peacock creates the ultimate destination for daytime fans to access the library, new episodes and Peacock Original Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem in one place.”

In its place, NBC will fill the daytime drama’s current timeslot with NBC News Now, an hour-long news show anchored by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen and Morgan Radford. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC affiliates will also have the option to add local news to the hour.

In a statement, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming chairman Mark Lazarus shares: “This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement. With a large percentage of the Days of Our Lives audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fanbase on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

NBC’s decision means it leaves only three daytime soaps on American broadcast TV: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. 

DAYS has found recent streaming success with its limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapters 1 and 2, which introduced the viewing audience to the Peacock platform.

To watch Days of our Lives on Peacock, you will need a premium-tier paid subscription at $4.99 per month. The service offers an an ad-free experience at $9.99 per month.

We will have more on this developing story.

So, what do you think of NBC removing DAYS from its daytime line-up, while moving it to their owned-streaming platform, Peacock? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Brandan Barash Shares Reaction to Jake’s Death on Days of our Lives: “It Was Fun Getting To Know You”

This week on Days of our Lives, Jake (Brandon Barash) met his untimely demise, when he was shot by a mugger.  Thus, signaling what would seem to be the end of the line for the character.

However, on today’s episode of the NBC soap opera, Jake visited a grieving Ava (Tamara Braun), so perhaps there is more than a ‘ghost of a chance’ that Barash is sticking around.

As previewed exclusively last month during our virtual interview with DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati …the Salem scribe revealed there would be another death in Salem, following the murder of Abigail Deveraux DiMera (Marci Miller), and the character would be ‘dead-dead’.

However, speculation is running wild that with the return of Dr. Rolf, that perhaps Jake will be resurrected … or Barash will once again play Jake’s twin, Stefan O. DiMera!

On Instagram, Barash had some fun with Jake’s demise with comparison side-by-side photos – one of which features Barash as Jake covered in blood, and reading the Handbook for the Recently Deceased!

Barash captioned his pic: “How it started/how it’s going. #ripjake It was fun getting to know you. 🙏🥃”

So, what do you think about DAYS killing Jake? Do you think Brandon will be sticking around Salem? If so, as who? Comment below.
