Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem is shaping up to be quite the reunion, as the new Peacock limited series is bringing back show favorites like Will, Carrie, and Austin, with actors Chandler Massey, Christie Clark, and Austin Peck reviving their roles. Now comes word that Eileen Davidson has been added too!
Eileen Davidson Comes Aboard
The show teases that more former Salemites would be part of the show as well, and Lisa Rinna revealed a big get on her Instagram story. The actress, who is leading the show with ISA agent Billie Reed gets involved in a huge mystery involving some missing jewels, snapped a video of Eileen Davidson in the makeup chair getting ready to film.
“Look Who I Found,” Rinna wrote on her Instagram story, sharing a video of Davidson. The real mystery may be who Davidson will be playing in the show. Rumors are circulating that she will be playing Kristen but Stacy Haiduk has been playing the part since the actress left the role. But remember, Eileen Davidson also played Susan and Sister Mary Moira, so she could turn up in any of her roles. She could also be Kristen, and leave Haiduk to play her on the mothership. She could even be playing herself!
The Young and the Restless star, who recurs as Ashley Abbott, also confirmed her involvement on her own Instagram page. “I’m BEYOND excited to be joining BEYOND SALEM,” the actress posted, adding a short video clip of her time in Salem.
Although no release date has been revealed yet, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem is set to play out over a long weekend, with many of the show’s core characters appearing as they make their way out of Salem for different reasons. John and Marlena are off to Zurich, Abe, Paulina, Lani, and Eli vacation in Miami, Ben and Ciara take a romantic getaway to New Orleans, and Chad will head to Phoenix to see Will and a recast Sonny (with former Y&R star Zach Tinker in the role).
Billie will encounter all of these characters as she tries to solve the mystery. Other DAYS stars—both current and past—are expected to take part. Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC.
