Wally Kurth Reassures DAYS Fans That: "I'm Still In Salem. Still The DA. Still Working …"

The multi-talented Wally Kurth (Justin, DAYS) took to his Twitter account to reassure fans who saw the report yesterday via About.com that related that Kurth and his longtime scene partner, Judi Evans (Adrienne) were taken off contract, but put on recurring status with the NBC soap opera.

Kurth related:  “News sure travels fast these days. I just heard yesterday afternoon @ my Days status. Woke up and heard it again on Twitter.”  He continued to instill viewers to keep watching for Justin:  “I’m still in Salem. Still the DA. Still working. The show is really good and I’m still having fun. Remember, it’s called showBusiness.”

Recently, viewers have seen Kurth having a new on-screen flame in Kassie DePaiva’s Eve Donovan, while we know that Justin and Adrienne are never truly out of each others lives.  And then there is the matter of Killer Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) being caught and brought to justice.  Will DA Kiriakis help put this criminal behind bars?  Stay tuned.

So, what do you think about the sentiments shared by Wally? Glad to understand he is still working away in Salem?  Comment below!

It is a good thing- recurring..
It gives the actors opportunities to do other projects and still be employed with the soap and still guaranteed a certain amounts episodes, usually 2-3 a week, and even more a week if they are involved in an upfront story….
and! the bonus / Wally can now do GH episodes, guest thing as before :)..

the only ones who prosper from a solid contract are the big stars, they get a flat rate no matter if in a story or not..(millions?)

Remember how Will’s death was supposed to give story to those who loved him? Well, Sonny abandoned his daughter to be raised by straights, Lucas is backburned, Sami doesn’t mention Will and is obsessed with EJ and Justin and Adrienne are off contract and have no story. No, I don’t think the naked, homophobic pandering was about good story for the characters left in the aftermath. We’ve got the Rafe of Our Lives – and a slew of new faces created by Tweedle Death And Tweedle Dumb (Griffith and Higley) who thought that by destroying the gay, the Westboro Baptist… Read more »

I thought the show would stop being so cruel after they were done obliterating Will and the gay family unit, but that was just the hateful warm up. It seems we’ve go plenty more mean-spirited and nasty stories ahead. At least Wally will get a few lines as DA but damn this show has turned dark.

I am glad that he is still there but now maybe he can play both Justin and Ned again! I think Days messed up and they should have went ahead and put him with Eve instead of letting Kassie DPV go. Wally has chemistry with about every lady they put him with IMO.

I thought the same thing as far as Wally playing both characters. I do love it when he spends a day or so at GH. I will always think of him as Ned.

I have not felt chemistry Justin has had the same chemistry with Adrienne since he came back to Salem. I think DOOL is missing a huge opportunity to have a great couple by pairing him with Kate. I am not feeling any chemistry with her and Eduardo. Justin and Phillip need to be the next generation of Kiriakis. I also think the show is missing the boat by not having a triangle with Justin/Kate/Eve.

That’s good to hear, but I’ve always known an actor can be recurring and still be featured alot. Wally just doesn’t have a guarantee. Now he has a chance to go back and forth between DAYS and GH or be contracted to GH.

John Aniston (Victor) has chosen to be recurring for many years and we have the honor of his presence quite often!

Hope to see him back on GH as Ned–this might give me a reason to watch GH regularly again!!

We’re we promised a good story for Justin and Adrienne? No mind, I’m sure everyone will love the slew of new faces being brought on board by the new writers. Because look what happened to all the ones brought on by the previous writers – so it will be totally worth getting invested in the show. It’s full of light and joy and happy endings.

Wally is so sweet to defend Deaths of Our Lives this way. I’m sure there will be a lot for the DA to do with the next round of killing and death and misery.

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.
