Never say never

When Reckell left Days of Our Lives in 2016 he said that he was not going to return and did not want to see a recast of his character. Bo's death was supposed to be final and the writers killed him off. Obviously, Reckell had a change of heart and the powers that be welcomed him back. From 1992-to 1996 after Reckell left the soap Robert Kelker Kelly stepped into the role of Bo. While he was welcomed by fans they were elated when Reckell later returned. The actor was quoted as saying "It's Time" regarding Bo Brady showing up which is interesting considering he was the one to make his exit final. Some Days viewers are hoping there will be some type of miracle and Bo can return to Salem permanently. Bo in Salem without Hope would not seem right but Alfonso left the soap in 2021 and like her onscreen husband said she would not return. Soap fans understand that daytime actors should never say never because more often than not they do return. As a matter of fact, both Reckell and Alfonso are going to reprise their characters in July on the Days of Our Lives spin-off on Peacock Days of Our Lives. Beyond Salem 2. The first Beyond Salem as well as the holiday sow A Very Salem Christmas had very little to do with what is actually taking place in Salem on NBC. Bope fans will be eager to find out what their favorite couple will be up to. Whatever takes place it will be wonderful to see Reckell and Alfonso together again on screen.
