Two fan favorites back for a special!
Days of our Lives viewers never thought we’d see the day that Kristian Alfonso (Hope Brady) and Peter Reckell (Bo Brady) would return to Days, even in a small capacity such as Beyond Salem. Both actors stated they wouldn’t return. It looks as though that ship hasn’t sailed and that July will bring another five-episode run from July 11-15 on Peacock.
Other familiar faces to be seen in this short series include Lucas Adams (Tripp Dalton), Camila Banus (Gabi Hernandez), Mary Beth Evans (Dr. Kayla Johnson), Deidre Hall (Dr. Marlena Evans), Remington Hoffman (Li Shin), Drake Hogestyn (John Black), Victoria Konefal (Ciara Brady Weston), Stephen Nichols (Steve Johnson) and Robert Scott Wilson (Ben Weston). In addition, Abigail Klein will be seen as a recast of Stephanie Johnson, a role originated by Shelley Hennig.
The last name on the roster came out April 29. Steve Burton (Jason Morgan) will be joining Beyond Salem. This comes as a surprise to many, since Burton left General Hospital in 2021 after refusing to adhere to the vaccine mandate.
There has been no information regarding whether or not the actor has been vaccinated or if it is mandated at Days of Our Lives yet.
In an epic, action-packed tale that spans the entire globe, from Monte Carlo to Hong Kong, heartwarming family reunions take a dangerous turn as a mysterious adversary wreaks havoc on their lives.
The next chapter of Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem is story full of larger-than-life romance, jaw-dropping twists, and high-stakes drama — and it all connects back to a plot that longtime DOOL fans will surely remember.
“We are beyond thrilled to be partnering with Peacock again to produce a second chapter of Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem,” said Executive Producer Ken Corday in a statement.
“Being able to build off of the storylines from Days of our Lives to create another exciting series for the audience brings myself, the Corday Productions team, and the cast so much joy. I cannot wait for the fans to see what we have in store next!”
How this happens, we aren’t sure as of yet, since Bo’s dead, but stay tuned for more…
