The week of January 18, 2021
After nearly two months off the canvas, Camila Banus is finally returning as Gabi Hernandez DiMera. And, not surprisingly, she’ll immediately share scenes with Brandon Barash when Jake receives a visit from his fiery ex on Tuesday, January 19.
Banus last aired in November of 2020. At the time, Gabi decided to leave Salem and head to Arizona, after finding Jake in bed with Kate (Lauren Koslow).
Ivan G’Vera has returned for another run as Ivan Marais, Vivian’s longtime manservant. The character was recently revealed as a co-conspirator in the abduction of Lani (Sal Stowers) and Eli’s (Lamon Archey) twins.
With G’Vera back on screen, it’s only a matter of time before Vivian joins him. And, as previously reported, this time she’ll be played by soap vet Linda Dano.
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 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.
