Ken Corday, Days of our Lives Executive Producer and co-head writer Marlene McPherson have promised fans of Days of our Lives a re-launch involving romance, family, relationships, and intrigue, of the style that made Days of our Lives great in the 80’s and 90’s. Those scenes are filming today!
And with the airdate of the re-launch fast approaching – September 26 – there has been much promotional activity on twitter promising not only the return of fan favorites like Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans Black), Drake Hogestyn (John Black), Matthew Ashford (Jack Devereaux), Christie Clark (Carrie Brady) and Patrick Muldoon (the original Austin Reed), but a new look Salem, including a new Horton Square.
Though the news of rumored and confirmed returns and departures has been flowing fast for the past couple of months, storyline spoilers have not.
So right now, we know that everyone will be in returning to Salem on or around September 26 for a grand event, news of what that grand event is, or the lead up storylines are well, a mystery.
What we do know however from a barrage of tweets (including photos – links below!) from the Days of our Lives set is that the grand event – a party in the glamorous style common in the 80’s and 90’s with beautiful clothes and fabulous hair and make-up is filming today.
