Here's the latest comings and goings casting news from Days of Our Lives.
Susan Seaforth Hayes returns as Julie on August 12 and 13, and this time around she has something fun to do. She'll have hilarious scenes with Kristian Alfonso (Hope), Mary Beth Evans (Kayla), Judi Evans (Adrienne), Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) and Arianne Zucker (Nicole) at a ladies only event that takes an unusual turn.
Husband Bill Hayes (Doug) tweeted about the guest spots back in April, noting that there were "Julie sightings" on the horizon. "Wow, that means we are 4 months ahead! I remember when it was 2 weeks," he noted.
As for Drake Hogestyn's (John) future with Days -- he taped his last scenes on March 18, which aired on July 18 -- there's hope that he might return to the soap; albeit on a limited basis. Executive Producer Ken Corday told Soap Opera Digest that while Hogestyn wasn't in current story plans, "there is a very good chance he will be back and have beats."
Corday also noted that neither Camila Banus (Gabi) nor Chandler Massey's (Will) roles will be recast, when their contracts expire in October and December, respectively. Both actors are planning to leave the show.
