The week of December 16, 2019
Good news for Sami Brady fans. Actress Alison Sweeney announced she’ll be returning to Days of Our Lives during an appearance on Hallmark’s Home & Family show. However, viewers won’t be seeing her for a while. Due to the show’s advanced taping schedule, she won’t begin airing until August 2020. Sweeney made her last appearance on the soap in late 2018.
James Read resurfaces as Clyde Weston on Monday, December 16. His character, who had been in solitary confinement, will rejoin the rest of the prison population, which is probably bad news for Ben (Robert Scott Wilson) and Will (Chandler Massey).
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.
