Days of our Lives fan favorites Kristian Alfonso and Peter Reckell have reunited on set for the spin-off series Beyond Salem.
It’s only been two weeks since news broke the talented actors would be reprising the roles of Hope and Bo Brady, roles that made them both household names. Although they won’t be returning to Days, the fact they will be on screen again is music to fans’ ears.
Peter chose to leave the hit NBC soap opera in 2015, and the character of Bo was killed off after being diagnosed with a brain tumor. Kristian stayed on the show for five more years in the role of Hope, leaving during the COVID-19 shutdown.
Both have stated several times they would not return to the hit daytime drama. However, they shocked fans last month when they signed on for Season 2 of Beyond Salem.
