Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives was its last before the two week break where it is pre-empted for the 2016 Summer Olympics from Rio.

When DAYS returns beginning on Monday August 22nd, NBC is promoting the upcoming storylines into the fall as “The New Season Of DAYS”.  In addition come September, look for the scripts from the new co head-writing regime of Dena Higley and Ryan Quan to begin to air.

In the new DAYS promo released by the network, here’s what to look forward to when your favorites from Salem return on-air! After Tate’s kidnapping, Brady (Eric Martsolf) and Theresa (Jen Lilley) are reunited with their son, but then all eyes are on Victor (John Aniston) as the culprit!  Deimos (Vincent Irizarry) and Nicole (Arianne Zucker) are taking their relationship to the next level, but Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) reveals she is pregnant with Deimos baby, and Phillip (John-Paul Lavoisier) says he will stand up and say he is the baby daddy!

Elsewhere, Chad (Billy Flynn) believes his wife Abigail has perished.  Grief-stricken, how will he move on without her in his  life? And how will Abigail’s death set back her mother Jennifer (Melissa Reeves), who has struggled with addiction to painkillers?  Then, there is a devastating injury to Kayla (Mary Beth Evans)!  Will this finally bring the Johnson family back together as a united front?

And, now that Aiden (Daniel Cosgrove) is the new DA of Salem, will he throw his once beloved Hope (Kristian Alfonso) under the bus for the murder of Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo)?  Finally the big event, as three DAYS villains break out of prison to exact revenge on those who put them behind bars.  Look for the return of Clyde (James Read), Orpheus (George DelHoyo), and Xander (Paul Telfer).  Will they ruin the wedding day of Brady and Theresa? There is a Kassie DePaiva (Eve) sighting at the nuptials as well!

Watch the preview for the new season of DAYS after the jump.  Let us know what has you most excited or intrigued when the show returns from its Summer Olympic break in the comment section below!

He’s a man who caused trouble for Marlena in 1987 and contributed to her kidnapping where she was presumed dead until 1991.

Sigh. If I wasn’t worried about the future of Days before, I certainly am now. I’m stunned they did not have any major cilffhangers heading into the break. Everyone knows they’ve already recast Abby, so her presumed death doesn’t mean anything. Aiden as DA? Yawn. The biggest mistake Days has made in the past year is being too dark. What I get from this preview is more darkness — three villains on the loose, Kayla near death, etc. Haven’t the plummeting ratings and fan dismay shown them anything? I’ll probably keep watching, but this just does not feel like DAYS… Read more »

I couldn’t agree more with everything you said. I know some viewers have increased hope with Dena Higley back at the writing helm but I do not have a short memory. She was fired a mere 5 years ago and there was a huge sigh of relief from fans of the show when that happened. I wonder what has occurred since then that would tell TPTB she can now do the job. I wait with anticipation but I don’t expect a major change for us who have been painfully faithful this past year.

OK, I was hoping for a change in direction away from “the darkness”. I was thinking that the break would “reboot” the show to watchable again. It seemed like there was going to be a change after the break, not just more of the same. Guess I won’t ever watch again now that I see that they have no intention of changing direction. Doesn’t matter what fans want. It’s business as usual for Ken, Dena and the others at Days! Days is so done and the idiots running the show don’t seem to care. Bye bye Days!!!

Very sad to say, but stick a fork in this show. It’s undoubtedly done. Ken Corday and his staff have shown time and time again just how out of touch they truly are with what fans want to see. They don’t care one iota about the fans.

These soaps desperately need some new, young, up-and-coming, diverse writing talent behind the scenes and to stop living in the ’80s, or else they’ll continue to bleed young female viewers in the target demo, hastening their demise.

Totally agree. As a 40-year old woman in the “coveted target demographic”, I can tell you why I no longer watch daytime soaps: They are full of outdated, misogynistic storylines that are highly insulting to women and have zero relevance to the lived experiences of anyone I know. All of my peers as well as the students I teach (11th and 12th grade) watch shows like Empire, Grey’s Anatomy, etc. and many of my students are watching shows like Gilmore Girls that they were too young for the first time around. These are shows with strong female characters that actually… Read more »

I’m a slightly older male viewer, but I agree with you to a certain extent. These tired old storylines of “she’s pregnant but the father doesn’t know he is the biological parent of the baby” bit has been played to death, as well as the “he has an evil identical twin” bit has been depicted just one too many times. In that respect, yes, soaps have seen their day. In fairness, the show does portray woman as having important careers (Kayla is chief of staff at the hospital, Marlena is supposedly a licensed Psychiatrist, Hope is a lead Detective) but… Read more »

Desperate much? DAYS is notorious for going on overkill when they want to bring in viewers and then they tell the story and it’s like a quickie in the backseat, over too soon and nothing left to give. DAYS needs to get new writers and stop telling boring stories. I’ll volunteer to write for DAYS.

Paul Telfer should be on contract. As Xander, he should recover his uncle’s fortune and return it in order to redeem himself with the family. I would much rather have Xander as a new male heavy than Deimos.

is so agree… there’s a mystique about Xander… and as a heavy … goodlooking to boot.. and CAN act that’s a powerful must have Deimos being the bad apple… bad seed… dark sheep of the family… ok we get it along with bedding all the women… Nicole, Chloe, and Kate… OK we get it muddled, where do we go from here ? Vincent Irizarry was so needed as the resident new doctor and there could have been oodles and oodles of story at the hospital especially with Dr. Kayla he may be tired of playing to type… but his hospital… Read more »

The return of Paul Telfer is a positive but they are not smart enough to keep him. I Thought for sure we would see Chandler Massey in the last seconds, he was the only one who could save the show.

mark
Guest

I dearly would like to see Chandler Massey back on the show. Sonny and Will need to have a re-marriage ceremony, only this time done correctly, with Chandler playing Will.

My big fear with a potential Chandler return, however, would be the near certainty of a repeat of the last six-months or so of his previous tenure, when the show wasted his great talent and our valuable time on pitiful drivel, while deliberately overlooking an embarrassment of potential storyline riches.

I hate Clyde; maybe it will be revealed that he had E.J. killed or killed him. I like the idea that Aiden is the D.A . ; he ,Andre , and Deimos make the show more interesting. Plus, Chad is being played too weak; know that he was the mild side of Stefano ; however, he needs to let the Di Mira side become more powerful. There isn’t anyway Stefano would allow Jennifer to breathe the idea about taking that baby. Also, Rafe, Hope, and Roman need to be brought to justice for Stefano’s death. I dislike cops who want… Read more »

Considering the Hell that Stefano put Hope , Roman and the Brady family through for years he got exactly what he deserved. I call it justifiable homicide.

Okay, depending how they write this I find the idea of three convicts in separate institutions escaping and coming back to the town for revenge a bit far fetched. And I don’t like the use of the words “new season” Soaps by their nature are continuing stories therefore do not have seasons like primetime. Stealing the term in attempt to promote Days is trying to give it a prime time edge that it does not have. But the truth is this might be too little too late– Right now I not watching Days due to a family medical issue— but… Read more »

This really does look so good and i can’t wait for the action to begin. I have been so upset with Orpheus since he put Marlena in that plane that had us believing that she had been killed. And with Clyde and Xander back to cause even more trouble will have me tuned in every day!!!

Some of you say Days has been too dark.
Do you want everyone to live in a perpetually sweet LaLa Land?
If you don’t have conflict you don’t have a story.
Having said that, I could stand to see more good news and light-heartedness.

If they bring back Mimi, the actress that plays her mother Bonnie, plays Adrienne now, so it might be weird. But I agree. They already have Phillip, Chloe, Belle & Shawn, they need Mimi & maybe even Rex to have a “reunion”.

I was glad Hope and Rafe finally did the deed on Friday. I like both characters and they both need some happiness. Billy Flynn, Melissa Reeves and Casey Moss gave fine performances upon getting the news of Abigail’s “demise.” I’m trying to hold on for Kassie DePaiva’s return. The current stories are making that very difficult. Knowing that her return is temporary doesn’t entice me to stick around after she’s finished. I wish TPTB would develop the relationship between Eve and Justin. Otherwise, the only hope I see for the show is if they come up with something interesting for… Read more »

Yeah, I agree with Llanviewer – I don’t even mind that the show isn’t on due to the Olympics ~ I’m not sure exactly WHY the show isn’t working for me, but without Will and Sonny, and Eve’s departure – I don’t know, I just don’t care that Nicole is getting involved with Deimos, I don’t seem to care about Belle and Phillip, I just don’t connect with these characters….or is it just very poor writing that is putting me to sleep (?) – JJ is now a Police officer (overnight) but while he had tremendous chemistry with the Paige,… Read more »

How “new” beginnings does this show get? There are obvious problems, every show has them, but this constant re-booting just is sooo getting old. I hope we don’t hear from Ken Corday about how this “new” beginning is taking Days back to where it used to be. he’s said that so many times and it just keeps getting darker and darker. I wish the show well, but am worried for it’s future.

Please get the stupid Hernandez family off Days, Rafe and Gabi are the only good ones, I don’t mind the bay story lines but do we have to watch 2 men making out, so disgusting . I been watching Days since the beginning and ya are losing me as a fan.

Don’t like the dark, evil, revenge driven storylines. As someone else said, young women love shows like Grey’s Anatomy because there are strong women and the focus is on relationships. The Deimos/Nicole romance could be good, I don’t mind the Hope and Rafe romance, and Aiden as the DA could be interesting. Just would like the show to move away from the darkness. I seem to only watch for 5 minutes and have had enough. Would love to want to watch a full show again.

I have been watching days ever since All My Children went off the air. Yes, I am hooked on Days. I realize every episode can’t be a nail biter show, however, there are episodes that are really boring and nothing happens? Then, I don’t watch the show for a few days hoping something exciting will be happening when I tune in again. To all who are reading this, the show is a way to escape and get involved with the lives of the show. Kudos to the writers who keep this going everyday. Wow! That’s a job I could not… Read more »

I’m glad characters like Clyde and Xander are coming back mainly because I liked the writing on the show when they were introduced. I have hated the writing on the show for all of this year. With Xander he was on way too short the first time, and its very realistic that he would want revenge on Theresa. He didn’t get caught for nearly killing Nicole and Eric, but Theresa fixed him up with a false rape claim. Clyde would also have unfinished business. But Orpheus? It’s good to see they’re using the same actor, but not sure why he… Read more »

I am beyond thrilled to hear that Kassie DePaiva is returning to DAYS. I’ve been following her career since her first scenes on OLTL and know what an amazing, versatile actress she is. She’s been cast in a variety of storylines, from funny to serious and anything else you can possibly imagine. She is clearly THE BEST!

The preview looks fantastic! I can’t wait to see Kassie DePaiva back on #Days. The show has been really good & I’ve been enjoying it even more since Vincent Irizarry & Jordi Vilasuso joined the cast. I’d really like to see Kassie have some interaction w/ them…..#Days should put her on contract & keep #Eve in Salem!

Lately, watching DOOL has been too much like work, so I what I have been doing is just deleting entire weeks lately. That’s the probably the death knell of me wathing this show
Too bad but the writing is terrible and the show is just plain B-O-R-I-N-G.

Interesting how Corday uses Stephen Nichols for publicity but his writers REFUSE to write for his character of Steve (PATCH). Having Steve lose his identity to become virtually nothing just a day player to Kayla once in a while tells me that Days is no more! Bringing viewers back on a false promise is basically defrauding all. I feel cheated and disgusted. The new writers have shown a total disrespect. They only prop their pets now and unfortunately they are just simple stereotypes. Nothing to brag about, nothing to care about!

As Days fans know, many people wanted Charlie dead, and now he is! Thus begins a good old fashioned soap murder mystery on the long-running NBC soap opera, the question now is, who ultimately did the deed?

Photo: JPI

After getting a copy of the latest Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, which features, “Who Killed Charlie?” on the cover, Manning shared in a post on Friday: Everybody has a motive to want this guy dead.” 😂 Not exactly how I pictured my first soap magazine cover, but at least we’re having a good time with it. It’s been fun Salem. I’ll love you all forever. ✌🏼💙. Thank you to NBC, to everyone involved, and most of all to the fans that were along for the ride w/ this crazy character. You’re amazing. I’ll always be grateful for you.  Excited to share what’s next as soon as I can.   Arrivederci. -Charlie/Mike”

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
