Days of our Lives has been bringing back popular — and a few loathed characters — from yesteryear, and rumor is more are on their way.
Nostalgic soap fans are always happy to see heroes, heroines, troublemakers, and even villains pop back up on the story canvas. Days has long been a drama that reaches back into the show’s history to schedule a surprise return or arrange a quick visit from a beloved family member for a special occasion. The show has had a lot of returns over the past year. Soap Hub asked how viewers are feeling about all of them.
Always Welcomed Home
Of the nearly 3,000 votes cast, 90% of you are excited by the slew of Salemites back on screen. You’re intrigued by the havoc Orpheus (George DelHoyo), Clyde (James Read), and Xander (Paul Telfer) are currently creating. You loved seeing Laura (Jaime Lyn Bauer) come back for Abby’s funeral, are looking forward to Patrika Darbo’s upcoming return as Nancy and, most of all, Marci Miller taking on the beloved role of Abigail.
Out of Sight, Out of Mind
Not all of you are welcoming back yesteryear’s characters with open arms. Some 6% of fans would prefer the show concentrate on the current cast. You’d rather see veteran stars like Deidre Hall (Marlena), Drake Hogestyn (John), and Bryan Dattilo (Lucas) featured in front-burner stories instead of past stars and characters — a few of which no one even remembers or really cares about — getting all the attention.
The remaining 4% of fans are caught somewhere in the middle. You enjoy a return every now and then but are quite content with the show featuring its current cast of characters in prominent plots.
