After saying goodbye in 2020, Kristian Alfonso is coming back to the “Days of Our Lives” family.
The actress will reprise her role as Hope Williams Brady in the spinoff series “Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem”, coming soon to W Network and STACKTV.
Alfonso originally left “Days” after starring on the show for 37 years, but in an interview with Soap Opera Digest, she says she never actually said her goodbye was final.
“I have seen online where viewers have stated that I said ‘Never’ regarding [returning someday] — I never said ‘Never.’ I said that I will not be popping in and out like other actors have done in the past. I didn’t say I’m never, ever coming back,” she says, according to Deadline. “I was not absolute.”
Meanwhile, “Days” fans will actually get double the Alfonso action, as the actress’s final episode on the main show has yet to air, having been in the can along with other episodes due to the pandemic.
Those already-shot episodes will take “Days of Our Lives” through early October.
