eacock has ordered a limited, five-episode series from DAYS called DAYS OF OUR LIVES: BEYOND SALEM, which will bring back THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS star Lisa Rinna (ex-Billie). Also featured will be Deidre Hall (Marlena), Drake Hogestyn (John), Jackée Harry (Paulina), James Reynolds (Abe), Victoria Konefal (Ciara), Robert Scott Wilson (Ben), Billy Flynn (Chad), Lamon Archey (Eli) and Sal Stowers (Lani). Additional beloved characters are also set to make appearances. The series’ description reads: John and Marlena travel to Zurich, Ben and Ciara have a romantic getaway in New Orleans, Chad visits some old friends in Phoenix, and Abe, Paulina, Lani, and Eli vacation in Miami. All find themselves embroiled in a mystery involving stolen jewels which, in the wrong hands, could cause dire consequences for Salem. It’s a race against time for ISA agent Billie Reed as she crosses the globe in search of this missing treasure.

This should have a link. That's from Deadline. Otherwise I'd never have believed it.

This is very good news for DAYS and the genre.

I wonder is this a test if the show ever got canceled on the network that the series can  go streaming on Peacock? I will be watching and curious to see if the quality will be any better? I wouldn't mind if they allowed them to swear slightly more.

If it follows the quality of Chad & Abigail in Paris and Last Blast Reunion, then I have zero hopes. As for swearing, let's hope some light swearing happens!

You should relabel it because people are just going to think you screwed up the post somehow.

Changed it to say "source" instead to avoid confusion. Thanks.

These were bad but it could be interesting for soaps on streaming to take on some Marvel Cinematic Universe characteristics. Having a mothership and multiple ongoing spin-off series that characters come in and out of but with a tighter focus. For example, a Will/Sonny/Paul series where they can show more of their lives immersed in a gay community, and people like Kate, Sami, and Gabi can pop in (similar to how characters from GH turned up on PC and GH:NS). It would require a creative visionary with a defter hand than Ken Corday and someone to make sure all the different series cohere narratively under the DAYS umbrella, but it would be an interesting streaming model further down the road. A way of introducing a lot of content using tried-and-tested IP.

Who the hell wants to tune in to Rinna's (sadly) cosmetically botched lips. When will the execs realize that the nearly non existed soap audience is nearly non existent because they rely on tired, over botox'd altered (frozen) faces from the past.

Wow, this is very encouraging to hear.

  I don't expect too much in terms of the quality (I'm guessing it'll be on par with the Chabby-in-Paris / Last Blast reunion, with more generous usage of sets), but it shows NBC and Corday are thinking long-range for the future of this show and its survival.  And a very smart move to bring in Lisa Rinna, who's now better known for Real Housewives than DAYS

That's great. Last Blast and Abby and Chad might not have had amazing production values, but it must've done well enough for Peacock to pick this up. Hopefully getting picked up by Peacock properly and not just the DAYS app means that they can at least have slightly better production values, but I'm not getting my hopes up.
