Two leading men appear to be returning to the soap. A recently-released DAYS spring promo featured both Kyle Lowder and Brandon Barash. Lowder last aired on the soap in August of 2019, when his character split Salem after breaking up with Sarah (Linsey Godfrey).
Meanwhile, Barash last aired in October of 2019. His character was the victim of an accidental shooting by Lani (Sal Stowers) and, later, pronounced braindead.
Brandon Beemer is off the canvas, again, as Shawn Brady. His character left town; however, it won’t be for long. The actor is scheduled to return to the soap in June for another storyline arc.
Dasha Flynn plays Marta, a Salem University Hospital worker, this week. She’ll share scenes with Stacy Haiduk’s Kristen. Flynn had a recurring role on the 2012 series Ringer.
Days of our Lives History
DOOL made its debut in 1965 and is one of the longest-running daytime soap operas in American history. It has outlasted other soaps to become a mainstay for many households. Needless to say, five decades of storylines have kept viewers locked in and wanting more.
From Stefano DiMera’s (Joseph Mascolo) evil schemes to Victor Kiriakis’s (John Aniston) one-liners to the epic love story of Bo (Peter Reckell) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso), DAYS knows how to entertain and keep fans coming back for more. Sadly, times are shifting and daytime soap operas are shrinking.
Bringing the Drama
It is one of only four remaining soap operas currently on the air. The other three daytime dramas include General Hospital (GH), The Young and the Restless (YR), and The Bold and the Beautiful (BB). DAYS airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for air times.
