Like sands through the hourglass … Salem continues to live on through all of the romance, heartache, drama, action-adventure, and camp, as today the long-running NBC soap opera turns 56-years-old.

DAYS first aired back on November 8th, 1965 and was the brainchild of Ted and Betty Corday, and through the years notable soap scribes such as the legendary Irna Phillips, Bill Bell, James Reilly, and more have crafted the stories that fans have loved.

Now, head writer, Ron Carlivati and his team continue to weave the tales which presently revitalized the demonic possession story of 25 years ago with a new slant to it.

The series continue to focus on the drama of the Brady and the Horton families, as well as the DiMera and Kiriakis clans, and more.

Ken Corday continues to serve as the series executive producer with Albert Alaar as its co-executive producer.

The series will celebrate its latest milestone with its fans for its upcoming virtual Day of Days event on Friday, November 19th.

Share your congratulations to Days of our Lives’ cast, crew and creatives for 56 years of daytime excellence via the comment section below.

Congratulations on the fifty-sixth anniversary. Let’s celebrate with new production values (use the app cameras, please) and company, a new executive producer and new head writer. A change needs to happen.

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
