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.

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.

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!

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

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
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”.

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.

James Scott Comments: “I Will Never. Never. Never. Never. Never, Go Back to Hollywood Let Alone DOOL”

Those hoping that finally James Scott would return to his signature daytime soap role of EJ DiMera on Days of our Lives, now that Alison Sweeney is on her way back to the show this fall for a longer run as Sami, can count those hopes now dashed and for good.

In a post on his Instagram account for his meditation and contemplations Sunday morning Zoom series and website, Scott posed with Deepak Chopra.  When a fans posted a comment in the IG account how they miss him on DAYS and to come back with Sami, James replied, “Hi – thanks for joining me here. Please know that I will never. Never. Never. Never. Never. Go back to Hollywood let alone DOOL. There is notbing interesting there for me. J”

Fan favorite James Scott, who has been MIA from the acting profession for awhile now is running The Whisper Within – and as detailed by the website, Scott explains how he left acting to be more involved with meditation and helping others find inner-peace – “In 2014, after a successful career in the entertainment industry, I found myself with everything and nothing.  I had money, celebrity, and status and the grief to match it. I had worked tirelessly for the better part of two decades to attain wealth and validation, yet no external thing could touch the emptiness I felt and the worthlessness I experienced.  I knew that something unknown wished to be known—something I could feel only through its apparent absence. In my despair and depression, I faced a simple choice: to change my lived experience or to end it. One felt impossible; the other easy I had already spent so much time reading self-help books, attending workshops and retreats, drinking concoctions with shamans, exploring tantra and abstaining from sex all together, dancing and singing, and many more practices, which had done little or nothing to abate the loneliness.

 

Desperate and in despair, still seeking, still suffering, I found my way to an Indian meditation center. I went for a week and stayed for a year. It was there in my own reflection that I found the teacher I had been seeking silently waiting to be known. At first, there was rage and anger, but eventually the intensity of the fire burned low and sadness took its place. I cried and cried until I cried myself empty and something new arose: beneath it all, I discovered a newfound peace. Like a fragrance arising from deep within, I heard the sound of the silence that can never be spoken: the eternal wisdom of the whisper within.  To live from this place is my practice and my path. To inspire others to do the same is my purpose.”

So, what do you think about James’ comments and path that he has now gone down for his life?  Do you think its time for DAYS to finally re-cast EJ? Comment below.
