Days of our Lives alums Eileen Davidson and Christopher Sean are headed back to Salem... actually beyond Salem. The fan faves will appear as part of the cast of the second iteration of the Days of our Lives Peacock series Beyond Salem. What's more, they'll be accompanied by Colton Little, Loretta Divine, Tanner Stine, Victoria Grace, and Davidson's real-life husband, Vince Van Patten. They'll join previously announced cast members Kristian Alfonso (ex-Hope Williams Brady); Peter Reckell (ex-Bo Brady); Deidre Hall (Dr. Marlena Evans); Drake Hogestyn (John Black); Steve Burton (Harris Michaels); Stephen Nichols (Steve "Patch" Johnson); Mary Beth Evans (Kayla Brady Johnson); Lucas Adams (Tripp Johnson); Camila Banus (Gabi Hernandez); Victoria Konefal (Ciara Brady); Robert Scott Wilson (Ben Weston), Remington Hoffman (Li Shin), and Abigail Klein (Stephanie Johnson).
The Sun has reported that Stine is set to take over the role of Joey Johnson, previously played by James Lastovic. As Soap Central previously revealed, Klein will play Stephanie, a role last played by Shelly Hennig. Meanwhile, the multi-talented Devine has been cast as Angela, Little will portray Andrew Donovan, and Grace will play Wendy Shin. Van Patten will play the role of Phil Hellworth, and Peacock has so far kept quiet about whether or not he will appear in scenes with Davidson, but he just has to, right?
Described as "an epic, action-packed tale that spans the entire globe, from Monte Carlo to Hong Kong," the second season of Beyond Salem is gearing up to be even bigger than the first. "Supercouple Steve and Kayla make a surprise visit to their children in Seattle, while private eye John Black travels to San Francisco to see his son, Paul. Meanwhile, new parents Ben and Ciara drop anchor in Montreal -- where they are greeted by a much-missed Hope! Over the course of five thrilling episodes, heartwarming family reunions take a dangerous turn as a mysterious adversary wreaks havoc on their lives."
The new, five-episode season of Beyond Salem kicks off on July 11, with a new episode posted every day through July 15. The series has been nominated for four Daytime Emmy Awards including Outstanding Daytime Drama Series, Outstanding Writing, Outstanding Directing, and Outstanding Casting.
