So exciting! In honor of ‘Days Of Our Lives’ 50th anniversary, a couple fan favorite characters are slated to return to NBC’s beloved soap drama. Find out the details here!

It’s almost been 50 years since Days Of Our Lives has been on the air! We can’t believe it either. Fans will be in for a real treat when NBC’s soap drama turns the big 5-0, because “two of the most popular characters in the history of the show” will be heading back to Salem, according to a new report.

‘Days Of Our Lives’ 50th Anniversary: Stephen Nichols & Peter Reckell Returning

Make way for Stephen Nichols and Peter Reckell! 

The men who play Steve “Patch” Johnson and Bo Brady are coming back to Days, and this might just be the most exciting casting news in awhile!

The show’s executive producer Ken Corday confirmed the news of Stephen and Peter’s return to Soap Opera Digest. “They represent two of the most popular characters in the history of the show,” Ken said.

The best part? It might be a few episodes we see them in! Though the soap will officially turn 50 on Nov. 8, the report teased that we might be seeing Stephen and Peter appearing before then!

It’s been a few years since we’ve seen either actors in Salem. Stephen was last seen in 2009 while Peter said farewell in 2012. We can’t wait to see what’s next in store for them!

‘Days Of Our Lives’: Alison Sweeney Says Sami Brady Will Return

Can we expect to see Alison Sweeney return for the 50th anniversary as well? After playing Sami Brady for 22 years, Alison parted ways with the show in October 2014 — and there might be hope for her return after all!

Though nothing is confirmed about her appearing on the show’s 50th anniversary, Alison told EXCLUSIVELY that she would “love to  come back to Days.

It would be a dream come true to get all our favorite characters back on screen together for the special anniversary!

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you excited that Stephen and Peter are returning to Salem? Sound off below!
