'Days of Our Lives' New Digital Series to Reunite Past Characters (PHOTOS)
Ready for a major blast from the past?
Days of Our Lives is bringing back nine characters and original actors from the 2000 season in a new digital series on The DOOL App, Last Blast Reunion. It will premiere on Friday, November 29, with subsequent episodes available every Thursday for the following seven weeks. The episodes, each 7-10 minutes, will be available on the NBC app and NBC.com one week after debuting on The DOOL App.
Returning to the .Com cyber café are Brandon Beemer as Shawn Brady, Martha Madison as Belle Black, Heather Lindell as Jan Spears, Aaron Van Wagner as Jason Welles, Nadia Bjorlin as Chloe Lane, and Lindsay Hollistar as Susan Adamson. Teressa Liane will take over as Mimi Lockhart from Farah Fath, and Chadwick Hopson will take over as Kevin Lambert from Brett Lawrence and Robert Benvenisti. Plus, viewers are in for a surprise when a major fan favorite returns in the first episode.
If it's a budget issue, we'd advise 'DAYS' pay top dollar for these stars — if the soap continues.
"We are excited to bring together some of the most beloved characters from Days of our Lives in the next DOOL App series," co-executive producer Greg Meng said in a statement. "As this new digital platform continues to grow, we can provide exciting additional content to complement the air show on NBC."
In Last Blast Reunion, Belle and Chloe learn Kevin has reopened the .Com Cafe in New York, and the three of them plan a reunion of the "Last Blast Crew." Susan, Shawn, and Mimi join them a week later for reminiscing on old bonds and rivalries. Though initially missing, Jan and Jason will eventually join the reunion. Prepare for shocking twists and a surprise ending.
We caught up with the cast — Cin! Jarlena! Elani! — at the annual fan event, just as the show jumps forward a year.
The digital series was written by Days of Our Lives head writer Ron Carlivati and produced by Corday Productions.
