Peter Reckell and Kristian Alfonso Will Return to “Days”!
Prepare yourself, Days of Our Lives fans. The miniseries will resume on July 11 and once again star Peter Reckell and Kristian Alfonso as the adored couple Hope and Bo. They originally starred on Salem in 1983 and rapidly became one of the show’s most beloved couples.
Announcement of the Return of the Couple
In a video that was presented to fans at the conclusion of Day of Days celebrations in Los Angeles, Peter Reckell and Kristian Alfonso broke this big news. The couple said they wanted their devoted fans to be the first to know that they are back taping at the Days of Our Lives studio.
In addition to Peter Reckell and Kristian Alfonso, the Season 2 cast includes Steve Burton as Harris Michaels, Drake Hogestyn as John Black, Stephen Nichols as Steve Johnson, Deidre Hall as Dr. Marlena Evans, Mary Beth Evans as Kayla Brady Johnson, Lucas Adams as Tripp Johnson, Victoria Konefal as Ciara Brady, Loretta Devine as Angela, Eileen Davidson as Kristen DiMera, Robert Scott Wilson as Ben Weston, and Camila Banus as Gabi Hernandez.
Plot of Season 2
Supercouple Steve and Kayla surprise their kids with a visit in Seattle during Season 2, while private spy John Black visits his son Paul in San Francisco. Meanwhile, a much-missed Hope welcomes her new parents, Ben and Ciara, when they dock in Montreal. Additionally, in the five episodes, happy family reunions become perilous as an unknown foe wrecks havoc on their lives.
But hold on! Bo technically passed away in Hope’s arms after learning that he had an untreatable brain tumor. So, it’s unclear how this will be addressed in the second chapter of Beyond Salem, but the five brand-new episodes will take place in locations from Monte Carlo to Hong Kong as the citizens of Salem swap in their familiar surroundings for an unforgettable experience.
The writing, according to Addis Reckell, has a lot of historical context. When he first read the entire script, he thought that the team had successfully brought all of this information up to date. Anyone who has seen the series will enjoy this since it will let fans relive memorable moments from the film and take them on a trip down memory lane.
Alfonso said that when they approached her and asked her to repeat the part of Hope Brady, she was quite flattered. With the exception of two brief hiatuses in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Kristian Alfonso played Hope Williams Brady on the NBC serial opera from 1983 until October 2020, when she decided to leave.
Alfonso stated at the time that executive producer Ken Corday’s surety to her earlier in the year that Hope would be off-camera for four to five months was ultimately what motivated her to depart DAYS. But she had now decided to join the team. A huge relief!
We hope Peter Reckell and Kristian Alfonso return soon so they may continue to captivate us with their wonderful and sultry coupling.
