Peacock wants to continue visiting old friends from the Days of Our Lives family. The streaming service has renewed Beyond Salem for a second season. The five new episodes will be released the week of July 11th.
A soap opera limited series, the Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem TV show is an extension of the long-running NBC daytime drama. The first season of the spin-off features current and past members of the Days of Our Lives cast, including Lamon Archey, Christie Clark, Eileen Davidson, Billy Flynn, Deidre Hall, Jackée Harry, Drake Hogestyn, Leann Hunley, Victoria Konefal, Chandler Massey, Austin Peck, Thaao Penghlis, Peter Porte, James Reynolds, Greg Rikaart, Lisa Rinna, Charles Shaughnessy, Sal Stowers, Zachary Atticus Tinker, and Robert Scott Wilson. The series begins as various residents of Salem do some traveling over a long weekend. John Black (Hogestyn) and Marlena Evans (Hall) travel to Zurich while Ben Weston (Wilson) and Ciara Brady (Konefal) have a romantic getaway in New Orleans. Chad MiMera (Flynn) visits old friends Will Horton (Massey) and Sonny Kiriakis (Tinker) in Phoenix. Meanwhile, Abe Carver (Reynolds), Paulina Price (Harry), Lani Price (Stowers), and Eli Grant (Archey) 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 (Rinna) as she crosses the globe in search of Alamainian Peacock’s missing treasure.
The second season’s cast will include Lucas Adams, Kristian Alfonso, Camila Banus, Mary Beth Evans, Stephen Nichols, and Peter Reckell, as well as Hall and Hogestyn (pictured above). Additional cast members are expected to be announced in the future.
The plot for season two was described this way:
In an epic, action-packed tale that spans the entire globe, from Monte Carlo to Hong Kong, beloved characters from Days of Our Lives once again go Beyond Salem as they trade the comforts of home for an adventure of a lifetime! Over the course of five thrilling episodes, heartwarming family reunions take a dangerous turn as a mysterious adversary wreaks havoc on their lives. The next chapter of Beyond Salem is story full of larger-than-life romance, jaw-dropping twists, and high-stakes drama – and it all connects back to a plot that long-time DOOL fans will surely remember.
“We are beyond thrilled to be partnering with Peacock again to produce a second chapter of Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem,” said executive producer Ken Corday. “Being able to build off of the storylines from Days of Our Lives to create another exciting series for the audience brings myself, the Corday Productions team, and the cast so much joy. I cannot wait for the fans to see what we have in store next!”
It spices things up with the new storylines. better viewing when each season
has a different adventure
I also hope this is free on Peacock. I saw the 1st spin off which was, then I couldn’t watch the Christmas episode because they put it on Peacock plus. If it is also on Peacock plus then I won’t be able to watch it.
It will be on Peacock Premium just like the Christmas Movie was.
Looking forward to watching it. Just hope it’s free
I don’t think so. It’s on Peacock Premium just ass the Christmas one was
Wow oldest currently soap opera daytime. Look forward to seeing it hopefully good classic then original series was.
Actually, General Hospital is the oldest soap on the air. They will hit 60 years a year from now. Days is not far behind though, going on 57 years.
These are the only two soaps that ever aired in Hell.
Uh… a Devil’s eyes must be playing tricks on him….. Did I just read that Bo & Hope would be part of this show….. even though Bo has been dead for years (no, he’s not in Hell!) and Hope has been AWOL since COVID?
So either this is another dumb “alternate timeline” thing (see the Xmas episode) or my old friend Dr. Rolf found a way to cure brain cancer, along with his usual zombie serum.
