Need more Days of our Lives?
Originally posted July 26, 2021: Peacock Streaming has announced that it has ordered a five-episode limited series spinoff of NBC’s Days of our Lives, called Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem. This series spinoff will include Days of our Lives’ alum, Lisa Rinna (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills) will reprise her role as Billy Reed, a role she has played off and on since 1992.
We last saw or even heard of Billie Reed, she was working in London as Titan’s head of security to be closer to Chelsea and Max. She then took on a role for the ISA as a cleaner, where we last saw her in 2018.

Along with Rinna, DOOL vets Deidre Hall (Dr. Marlena Evans-Black), Drake Hogestyn (John Black) and James Reynolds (Mayor Abe Carver) will be seen, including Jackée Harry (Paulina Price), Victoria Konefal (Ciara Brady-Weston) Robert Scott Wilson (Ben Weston), Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera), Lamon Archey (Eli Grant) and Sal Stowers (Lani Price-Grant). Also revealed to be joining the show are Christie Clark (Carrie Brady) and Austin Peck (Austin Reed). More updates – Thaao Penghlis (André DiMera), Leann Hunley (Anna DiMera), Young and Restless’ Greg Rikaart (Leo Stark), Chandler Massey (Will Horton) and Zachary Atticus Tinker (Sonny Kiriakis), who is a Y&R alum and Eileen Davidson who originated the part of Kristen DiMera and Mary Moira, will be part of the spinoff. Freddie Smith explained his absence from Days of our Lives in this YouTube video.
A Peacock rep teased that “additional beloved characters” will also turn up in the new series. Soaps Spoilers has since learned that Noah Huntley will portray Lord Sebastian Alamain, and Geoffrey Kenedy as Aide, and Peter Porte (ex-Ricky Williams, Young and the Restless) will join in a recurring role as Kyle Graham, an ISA agent, likely with ties to Billie Reed. Plus, Charles Shaughnessy returns as Shane Donovan, and Adrienne Frantz and her husband Scott Bailey will also be appearing as Lili Faversham’s granddaughter and her husband. Readers will remember her in her role as Amber Moore on Bold and the Beautiful and Young and the Restless.
“Over a long weekend, John & Marlena travel to Zurich, Ben & Ciara have a romantic getaway in New Orleans, Chad visits some old friends in Phoenix, and Abe, Paulina, Lani, and Eli vacation in Miami. All find themselves embroiled in a mystery involving stolen jewels which, in the wrong hands, could cause dire consequences for Salem. It’s a race against time for ISA agent Billie Reed as she crosses the globe in search of this missing treasure. Packed with all of the romance, action, drama, and surprises that only Days of our Lives can deliver, fans will spend a week with their favorite Salem supercouples and reconnect with many familiar faces along the way.”
